Happy New Year Wish I Drank Champagne 2012

I was going through my 84 blogs and realized I neglected this one. Oopsy. I am still trying to improve my life. And be a better person. Older and wiser and all that. I guess my resolution should be to keep up with my blogs. It's about 3 hours till midnight here. So if you are reading this, rub your screen for some good luck New Year's Magic.

Keeping Commitments

I think commitments are so hard to keep because we make so darn many of them, and some are just woven into the fabric of life. Today is Valentine's Day, a day fraught with expectations, and too often disappointments.  So my only goal today is to take my boyfriend's mom out to lunch. She seems to be his main focus lately, and I don't particularly enjoy going, but you should see the hassles if I don't go. So I got her balloons, and I got her a card, because he just never seems to get around to it.

I miss my mother,who is passed on, and I miss my kids, who live far away, and given my druthers I'd rather spend time with them. I'm sure a lot of people feel the same way.

I have so many unfinished projects that today's theme is "Finishing Things". Already I finished my letter to Carol. Unfortunately I missed the mailman.

I need to finish the two scarves I'm making for the Special Olympics.

Make Things Happen

I realized I'm spending too much time thinking and not enough time doing, so I made a to-do list on my to-do private blog, and immediately sprung into action. Right now I just ran into the house to get my yarn organized for a knitting project. See my knitting blog for more on that.
I got some fiction reading done.  I can't keep renewing those books!
I got some housework done too. Now, back to the knitting.

Add Beauty to Your Surroundings

Dragon Needle Punch by Fayme Harper
I shall endeavor today to pick a part of my apartment and make it as beautiful as I can. In my case, that probably means decluttering it. I have way too much stuff in too small of a space.

Just Move On

My theme today is "Just move on". I tend to linger on things too long, then my to-do list doesn't get done.  Like I may play Farmville too long.  Or I'll be sitting on a couch and an old movie was on when I sat down. I've already missed the first 20 minutes of it, but I feel compelled to watch till the end. Why? An object at rest tends to remain at rest I suppose.

I feel like this gourd, just sitting around doing nothing.
Or I'll be in the Etsy chatroom. Now the first 20 minutes are very useful.  But 2 hours? That's a bit too much. I need to limit my Etsy visits to 20 or 30 minutes.  I'd be better off posting new items than lurking in chat. Typically my mood goes downhill if I stay there too long. It's a new year so new rule...just move on.
