Okay. So, I know I promised New Year's goals ages ago and I've told so many people about them and typed them out so many times that, frankly, I'd kind of forgotten I hadn't shared them here yet! So here they are in a nutshell, so that you can all ease your curiosity. Lose 20… Continue reading New Year Goal Time!
People laugh at me because I am very predictable. In many ways, at least. Every year, I make innumerable New Year’s Goals. Every month, week, sometimes by the day, I write schedules and lists. I have made menus since I was 15 or younger. I schedule out my life as much as possible. I pursue… Continue reading The Alpine Path – and attempts to reach it
I've been intending to do a New Year's Post and I still intend to - but I have this super detailed plan I want to complete before I discuss it, so this is just a hold-over post to note what's been up. I was sick through New Years and it was almost more stressing to… Continue reading Just a bit of thought
As part of my new year's resolution, I have a new schedule (as anyone who knows me at all would have already guessed). I get up at 5:00 AM, do a quick 10-minute workout (sometimes Calisthenics and sometimes stretches as instructed by the chiropractor), get dressed, do hair and makeup, grab the lunch my husband… Continue reading Making Characters Suffer
So, I know last year I said I wasn't doing resolutions - I was just doing goals (ultimately the same thing, right?) More and more people do that, I think - shrug off resolutions as an overrated thing that are made and broken year and year (true enough!). Therefore, in an attempt to fit in,… Continue reading Typical New Year Post
Did I finish writing that book in December? No, no I didn't. Lest you think I was just not posting updates, I assure you I did not write another word. I cannot believe how busy this year's holidays were. I know I say that every year, but seriously! This year's Christmas in Minnesota was defined by three… Continue reading Happy 2018!
I have been avoiding writing a New Year's post. Why, you ask? I think a majority of you can already guess the why. I have been thinking back to last year's goals and how I didn't meet a single one of them and wondering why I try to make goals at all and feeling like… Continue reading New Years Already?
As I sit in my lovely living room, the Jim Brickman station playing softly in the background, curtains drawn, a cup of tea (yes, in a teacup) and the beautifully lit Christmas tree in front of me, it feels more like early morning than almost 11:00 AM. Of course, the magic of the moment keeps… Continue reading A New Year, A Grateful Outlook
