    Please don’t come to my house…

    My house isn’t horrible but it’s not spotless either.  It’s NO WHERE near a level of a hordes house (I grew up in one when I was a child).  My mother often blamed me for the mess because I didn’t clean up after myself or anyone in the house. It had nothing to do with her keeping everything of my brother’s (and no, he didn’t die.  He is still very much alive.) Or her lack of effort. I was the female unwanted child and it was my responsibility to keep the house clean. Do you know any seven year old how has to do that? Anyway, I digress, but please…

    Goal Statement

    So, for the people that have been following me for a while know that I often post a goal statement.  I tend to do one at the beginning of the year and then another one sometime midway through.  For me, posting my goals out to the world holds me accountable to them.  (I have this odd thing about when I tell someone about what I plan to do and I don’t do it, I feel REALLY guilty and that makes me get it done.) So this isn’t going to be glamours or anything exciting, but just me sharing what I hope to achieve by the end of the year. {Side…

    update! (again) and a new writing goal

    So sadly life has been getting in the way.  We have finally settled into our new place and got a decent rhythm with life.  Stuff has settled down so now I can focus more attention to my blog and my writing!  And boy, do I! I have been terribly missing writing and the joys of being able to sit and type my thoughts.  I would love to share all the stories going on in my head.  It would be a wonderful experience for everyone around.  There is only one thing stopping me…  That would be sitting down and actually getting the writing done! So here is my current (and temporary)…

    Personal goals

    This post may be on the duller side of things since I am currently working on in my day-to-day life.  As you may know, I am a first time stay at home mother with a four month old.  Things are known to change at the last moment.  Let’s keep it short and sweet. One major area of my life I need to work on is my schooling.  I have a diploma in nursing but I have decided not to be come a nurse.  I love to help people and I love the science part as well.  I sadly have cold shoulder when it comes to working with others and it…

    Goals for my writing

    For the next set of blogs about my goals are going to be a little less blabbing and more meat. So, enjoy!This is going to be really vague since I’m still trying to figure this one out for the long run.  My over all goal is to at least write for an hour three times a week.  On top of that, I am going to be blogging at least three times a week as well.  So that brings me up to five times a week.  At the moment I do not have any project planned or in mind. I have several started and a few in my head.  For someone else, this might…

    Currently a work in progress!

    Self improvement never happens over night.   So many people want the quick and easy solution for EVERYTHING!  That’s why weight loss, smoking cession, writing the next great American novel and so many other things never seem to happen.  It’s quite a sad state of affairs. When I make a goal, I know that it will not happen overnight.  It won’t even happen within the week or month.  It will take time, weeks, months, and even years to happen.  It has taken a long time for me to realize this fact.  I hope that everyone out there who is reading this, realizes this too! So, I am just going to…

    My New Year Resolutions!

    2013 has been one hell of a year and my only hope for myself and for my family and friends, is it will be one of the best years to come! I’m hoping for bigger and better things but to do that, I have to get my butt in gear (and in the chair). So here is my goal statement for this year. Let’s see if I can do it! One of the biggest things I want to achieve is getting into the habit of writing everyday a minimal of 2000 words. These do not have to be for a current project but it has to be words that are…
