Mastering the subject

As a young girl I was quite imaginitive, as most girls are. I loved dress-ups and dolls and stories and making shapes out of clouds while staring at the big, blue sky.

I was also easily distracted. One day I would decide to clean my room - spotless! It was going to be sooo clean and make my mom so proud. But my mom would usually find me watching a Brady Bunch marathon instead. Oh, but then Gilligan's Island was on the other channel so I would have to flip back and forth between the stations. Then a friend would come over to play. And the Jones' had open plunge at their swimming pool that I couldn't miss. Then of course, I had to play on my Lite Brite for a while. By the time I would finally make it to my room, it was time for bed.

Where did the time go?! Remember those lazy summer days as a child?

It seems that I haven't quite grown out of the "distracted" phase because my time escapes me daily and I find myself asking "What did I actually accomplish today"?!

I seem to be drawn to the internet like a mosquito to a bug zapper. I'm drawn to the light!! Ooooh. The pretty pretty lights.

I have projects that I have put on the back burner for a while now but it's become critical that I finish them.

I once received advice to "Master the subject at hand." I think I'll heed those words this week.

So, I'm grounding myself from the computer (mostly, not completely....don't be silly) until I get some of these pressing projects done.

You may not find me blogging this week. I'll try to be back as soon as I can because your blogs make my day!! I have more fun reading your blogs than I do posting on my own blog! My husband thinks it's funny that I just laugh and laugh at some of the things my blogging friends write about.

Be back soon!!

Wish me luck on getting stuff finished! Have a super week!
