lingering list

i feel behind and a little out of sorts.  i like my goals, resolutions, or whatever you like to call them best, written, then typed, and and sometimes shared.  because, as a blogger isn’t that what i’m suppose to do?  share?  and share on schedule?  i took a little break from blogging, as i do, which unexpectedly turned into […]

Say, how do you clear clutter….from your mind that is?  Do you ever have a hard time finding free space to make room for the most important thoughts that you really should be thinking? I have to say my mind, lately, is completely, jammed packed with details, ideas, to -do’s, and every other thing that […]

Digitally Organized

I like organization. a. lot.  And it is just not working out for me, these days, the way I would like it to.  This is life with 4 little la la’s so I’m trying desperately to accept. So, in an effort to take a bit of control I thought I’d turn to my digital disaster […]
