5 Essential Ways to Finally Get Organized

We are three weeks into January (and almost at my birthday) and I feel that I have little to show for myself. Since just after New Years sickness has settled in over our home. Last week Brandon had strep throat leaving him out cold for several days and me taking care of him. This week a cold thought it timely to attack me and I have been fighting to keep up my usual pace.

It feels that since Christmas the busyness has picked up slowly and steadily, like an old train pulling away from the station. Life has become lively again, and after a couple weeks of couch hopping and Christmas cookie indulging it was welcomed.

Although I am enjoying getting back in the swing of things, my problem comes with a single solitary thought that hits every morning:

What shall I do today?

Only Mist

Do you ever have those days?

You know, those days... the days when nothing seems to go right. It is not any one thing that can easily be pointed to with an ‘ah-ha that must be it’ thought. It is rather just a feeling. A touch of tiredness mixed with a dab of laziness all stirred into a feeling of just being down.

It’s not depression or sadness by any means. I really have nothing to be sad about. It is just a bit of gloom. A mood that reflects the sloshy streets and overcast skies that cloud the day.

Hello 2015!

10, 9, 8…

As the clock ticks down and Ryan Seacrest points toward the dropping of the ball in New York City with other celebrities scattered on the stage, I find myself anxious for the clock to strike midnight while almost wanting to hold onto the old year.

“It will never be 2014 again!” I say in the midst of the countdown.
