I LOVE! Oh dear. I think that's the single positive thing about working for me (besides the whole money thing), is it makes Saturday mornings sooo blissful.
I can be lazy and take my time, I can make breakfast, I can gather my nice little thoughts (cause Clay sleeps in WAY past me), I open the blinds and let the natural light come through (even though it's cloudy and I would much rather have sunshiney)...it's just nice.
Normally we have our IV treatments in Pocatello....but what do you know? Somehow it was forgotten to make an appointment. Normally, we have to wake up at 6:30 AM and be ready to go as soon as possible, to get down to Pocatello as soon as possible, so we can get our 3ish hour long treatment done as soon as possible, and get home by 1:30 if we are lucky. It makes having lazy mornings pretty impossible. So, though I'm kinda upset we didn't get our IV treatments (since they help a LOT with my energy level), I'm happy to have my Saturday morning.
I have thought about some goals I want to accomplish. My life has kinda become deadish since the whole Lyme disease thing. I feel like I wake up, rush to work, warm up dinner, and collapse on the couch/bed watching tv shows. What a lifeless life right? I used to have a lot more hobbies it seemed. So here are the goals I want to work on starting NOW:
1. Work on being a better people picture taker. I LOVE my camera. I LOVE taking pictures of inanimate objects. Like...pillows and food. ha. When they don't move, or have life...I seem to do okay. Whenever I try to take pictures of people, or anyone that is moving? I seem to have problems. I would REALLY like to get better before I have little kiddos running around. And I like taking pictures, so it'd be nice to work on something specific. Hopefully I can non-awkwardly find random people to take pictures of :) Cause Clay isn't the most willing participant! Unless I want angry looking faces in every pic. No thanks.
2. I pretty much am fearless in the home-decor sewing biz. I in no way think I'm the master...it's just that it's gotten to the point that I see something I like, and I figure out a way to make it. I mess up a lot, but I just dive in and don't care, I've become fearless. One thing I am NOT fearless in...in fact I'm completely a SCAREDY cat- is the clothing arena. I want to become fearless with clothes. So, I want to work on making clothes/altering clothes, etc. I feel like if I just take the leap, and try a few things...pretty soon I'll be fearless at that too. Hopefully :)
3. Reading. I used to read ALL-THE-TIME. Some of my friends that knew the old Danielle who read a lot, always ask "Read anything good lately?" and...unless I want to embarrass myself and say..."uh...yeah, People.com", there's NADA. Seriously- that's the extent of my reading these days. Celebrity gossip! I miss reading. I used to LOVE it, and get so into the story and it just felt a lot better than tv. I hope to start reading more. You know those kindle commercials? They are good. I always say to myself, "I need one of those" after I see one. I am sooo not one of those people who think, "I love the feel of books and highlighting things". Nope. Don't care! I fully love just reading good stories. I don't really care if it's on the computer, hardback, paperback, phone, or anything. As long as I don't want to put it down, I like it. The only thing about the kindle though, anyone know if there's a library connection? Like, you can connect to your local library and rent books or whatever? I need to look into that.
4. My hair. This is something I've never been good at. But I am so sick of just the same ol straight every stinkin day. I have different things I could do with it...I just need to do it. That is another goal I want to work on. Doing different things with my hair.
Well, my Saturday morning is officially spoiled. It's snowing! Maybe another goal I could have is to convince Clay's company he works for to move to California.
Being that I AM limited in the things I do lately...I know I'm not gonna master these things immediately. That's why I said goals I'm going to WORK on. Slow and steady.
Alrighty..till next time!
