Well, rats and frazzle. I got up this morning, and there the dirty dishes were. Apparently my request for a dish fairy for 2007 has been denied. Again. Gah. Well, forget it, family. I'm taking one of the kids clothes shopping instead. Four hours of sleep on a child who hates clothes shopping (well, any shopping) on the first day of the new year. It's either that or dishes. I couldn't come up with a better list than this??? Haahaaahaaaa. The New Year's baby is giggling at me.
But I'm excited. I'm hopeful. I'm starting new things. I get out of the house more every year that the children grow, and I think that makes me a better person. In fact, I know it does. Every year, I feel more and more like the person I used to be. My husband is probably happy, too. All work and no play make Carrie a dull girl.... *giggle* We've got the drama club, we're going to work more on the house, this year I'll get Christmas cards out... I may start that one now. I like to set attainable goals for myself. I'm now the co-leader of our on-line group of friends in World of Warcraft. I don't know what that means, but I'm sure it has to do with me having some serious power - mwahaahaaa. (Where does that laugh track keep coming from?) My mom and I have a business idea that looks fun, and my husband and I actually started a business. Children are nearing adolescence, one step at a time. Plus I have a plan for keeping track of my knitting projects. I envision this year with me swerving and moving from one fun activity to another. Momentum keeps me happy. Sitting and doing nothing bum me out.
So, right now, nothing to report, since nothing has happened yet besides me killing the first cup of coffee of the New Year. But I'm ready!
Pretentious living, through literature and films?
