What in the world do I want to do with my life? I thought about that question and the answer was pretty overwhelming...because I don't think that there's enough time in any given day to do what I want to do! So, my options are to sit and do nothing or do as much as I can pack into every 24 hour period and be satisfied that I got something done!
As much as I want to just sit and do nothing but read a book or watch a movie or stare out at the snow falling...that just isn't me. And even if it were, the pair of twin muses that sit on my left and right shoulder would drive me absolutely nuts with their endless chatter. Left Shoulder Muse with her pair of horns and bad language telling me that I really should go drink a few shots of Fireball and write a dirty, smutty sex scene...and Right Shoulder Muse with her halo, wings and soft musical voice urging me to write a tender love story. They have been such a nuisance lately that I figured the best way to satisfy them both would be to include them in one of my novels...and you will find them sitting on the shoulders of my heroine in my upcoming novel Wing and a Prayer.
Then, of course, there's that closet full of craft supplies that scream for attention every time I go into my spare bedroom. There's the quilt that I designed, bought the fabric for, and then never cut out the first piece...there's the thirty cross stitch kits I've picked up and started and then put down before they were finished...there's the yarn for the purple afghan I was going to make as a Christmas gift this year...and there's the strips of fabric for the crocheted rag rug for my spare bedroom...well...I'm sure that you are getting the picture!
Now that the groundhog didn't see his freaking shadow, it means that spring is coming up soon. That means with the onset of spring comes the need to get the seedlings for the garden started and to go shopping for a rototiller to cultivate this huge garden I am planning. And don't get me wrong...I'm glad that the sun is finally going to come out and warm things up...especially my pasty white skin since sun tanned fat looks a little bit better than this stuff that looks a lot like the underbelly of a dead fish. But then again, if I was outside doing something in the yard or garden I probably wouldn't have that problem to begin with!
Ok...so you might ask what I'm going to do...easy...I'm going to do it all! Some how...some way...I'm going to get over this hump of sitting in front of the idiot tube and do everything that I want to do! Stay tuned...for news...same place...every Sunday...
