Part 2

As the day has progressed, I have come up with a few more “things” about my life that I feel are in need of an eensy-weensy shake-up.    I had to wait for Willow to have her nap so I could concentrate, so I hope I remember everything.  I don’t know where this sudden drive came from to self-improve, but it seems like a pretty good thing, so I think I’ll just roll with it and see where it takes me.  I’ll just continue from my last list….

13.  Write a letter to my birth mother.  This is not something I “want” to do, it is something I NEED to do.  I need to seriously confront how I really feel about her and the fact that she walked out on me.  Whether I send the letter or not is still up for debate.

14.  Spend less money.  A LOT less.  We were down to our last $50, and I just spent it.  I know Ryan is getting frustrated with me, and if I were him, I would too.

15.  Embrace nature more often.  I don’t camp, but spending time outdoors and soaking in nature’s beautiful life force always helps me focus on my purpose.

16.  Research adoption so I can make a more educated case to Ryan.  Yes, I recently decided that if we were to have another child, I would prefer to adopt.  I will save the “why’s” for another post, it’s a pretty depressing story.

I think that’s it.   For now, that is.

I’ve already made a little bit of progress (hey, if you’re going to set some goals for yourself, why not jump right in?!?)  I went through my facebook apps and deleted all the ones that will take more than two minutes, so all but three went.  I signed up on Twitter so I can “update” without even signing onto facebook.  I’ve made some plans to keep Haley busy without the TV, and I have a super-healthy dinner planned.  Now I will go have a nap, seeing as (as I mentioned before) I have been up since 1:30am and I am getting really, really tired.  G’nite.


  1. You should get a notebook and pan, and then just jot stuff down.. thoughts ideas etc.. it really helps when you’re not able to instantly get to the computer 🙂 plus sometimes it’s just for you. 🙂

  2. and when I say pan.. I clearly meant pen 😀 a note book and pan wouldn’t do you much good.. unless you were wacking things with the pan.. tee hee

  3. That’s a good idea – and my purse is pretty big, I can fit a pan in there too… I can think of a few people that could use a whack or two 😀
