Busy busy busy

Just checking in to let you know I'm here. I've let myself get too busy and I just need to make more time to write.

This past weekend I had guests for dinner, went to church, worked in the church office, and attended an opera. And I've got lots of homework to do tonight.

I wasted a lot of my life being lazy and doing not much of anything. This is a nice change.

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone. I promised my sister I would post today no matter what. One of the character defects I've been working on is my perfectionism, which is directly related to another, which is procrastination. I put things off until I can do them "perfectly". Of course, there's no such thing.

So here I am, rushing to get a post out there so the pic of me in my Christmas pajamas can get off the top (even though it's a nice picture, I'm sick of seeing it too). Speaking of pictures, I am going to change my profile picture because I've lost 45 pounds and it's showing on my face. But the one I want is on a disk in my car so I'll have to do it later.

The new year is going great. I've been getting ready for school, which starts next week. Yesterday I put the window decal on my car that declares that I am a college student. My books are bought and I've done a dry run to the school to time my arrival. I went to the New Student Orientation this week and I ran into a friend there who is also taking classes at night!

Have you made any New Year's Resolutions? I haven't done that in years, opting instead for setting goals. If you have made resolutions, you may have broken them already. Don't worry. The power to change your life is available to you in every minute. Don't wait until next year, or next month or next Monday. Pray for guidance, set a goal, make a plan to achieve it. Then take the first step. If that step is upon the right path, God will reward you with what you need.
