I bet you are thinking that I’m talking about retreat again. Well, it is time (or past time) for us to get our registration forms in.
It’s time (once again) for us to stage our Revolutions! How did you do last year? I will admit that I did not do very well. I am optimistic (as we all are at the beginning of the year) that I will make more headway. My goals this year? I’m betting that they will be similar to ones that you may have.
First, I would like to lose some weight. Preferably somewhere where I won’t find it again. I think my revolution is off to a good start as we cleared out the area where the elliptical stands and I’ve managed to get on it 7 times in 2 weeks for 15 minutes a pop. I’m not really worried about how long I’m on it at this point. I’m more concerned about creating the habit. So far so good. At least the initial skirmish has gone in my favor.
Second, I would like to be more organized. I feel like this is the most important one for me and the one that I struggle with the most. I will admit that our initial skirmish has not gone in my favor and now I am circling some blogs for inspiration and getting back in the habit of making lists so I can find a direction to go in and feel some accomplishment when checking off those items finished. At least that makes me feel like I am more in control of this revolution, but we shall see how things proceed.
Thirdly, I would like to get some UFO’s completed! I won’t dazzle you with how many I have. I suppose it would be fair to say that I don’t really know how many there are. I’m also not going to run up and count them because I fear that would be too depressing. I haven’t helped my case either by having 3 projects that are on deadlines. One of which the deadline has passed…..yikes! I’m getting close though. Blocks are finished just need to put them together, add the border, and quilt. The other two haven’t been started just yet.
That’s really it for me. Three things. It doesn’t feel like much, but then I don’t want to stage a revolution on too many fronts. Of course part of being more organized means posting here more. Yea! I know you are terribly excited about that. I know I am. After all, you just never know what we’ll talk about next!
I’m curious to see how whether the Monkeys have staged any revolutions of their own. I hope you are also staging your own revolution and I wish you well on them!
