Preparing to Blog

   I've not done very well at this Blogging adventure. Its been a year now, and I just don't seem to be able to get in the groove of blogging on a regular basis. I been putting a lot of thought into the whys and hows to be a better and more consistent Blogger.. Here is what I have come up with: 

1. You need your pictures readily accessible. If they are not, it take more time thank I     have to hunt them down, upload them and by then I have totally lost my train of  thought. I am now in the processo of uploading anything I might use to a Flicker account..  Getting prepared!

2. Have some ideas to Blog about jotted down ahead of time. If I wait till I have a little time to write, my mind goes blank. Nothing, Notta!!! I now have a notebook with Blog post ideas and a few lines to get me going. 

3. Get out of the house and get a life!!! No one whats to read my opinion of all the Blogs I read, what I planted on Farmville today, or what I did not clean in my home today!!! No further explanation needed.

4. Start to look at the world with a more creative mind. This will take some practice. My Creativity seems to have dozed off and I am having a little trouble waking it up. But, I will be persistent and not give up... I practice and explore everyday. I open my eyes and see everything around me trying to see it for more than what it is. I pretend its a different color, pretend it has a different purpose, I turn it around, upside down and sideways to see it differently.. Practice makes perfect RIGHT~~~

5. Set your mind to doing it. That's Right, now I just need to make me some signs to put up everywhere that Read  "JUST DO IT".

I'll see where all this takes me. I have many ideas as I lay in bed trying to sleep, now if I can just remember them all in the morning. LOL I have convinced myself that perfection is not necessary to begin my venture in the Blogging world. But Effort is!. I'll be seeing you soon. No promises to break but a good effort just the same. Happy Blogging everyone!

What a Year 2010 Has Been

What a year 2010 has been. I have been so busy doing things to blog about, that I haven't had time to write a word. I started a job in April. Worked until September, then started remodeling my living room. In the middle of all that time was camping trips, reunions, sickness, and much more that I hope to remember as I begin to share my year with you.

I'll start with my Job. I went to work for the Census. Worked as a clerk in the office. I wanted to earn enough money to buy  new living room furniture. I succeeded!!! But I also made many new friends and loved my job. Being a census job I can't say a lot about what I did due to the privacy laws, but it was very interesting and fun. I worked as an enumerator in the 2000 census. With all that went down out there in the field this year, I'm glad I wasn't out there. The world has most definitely become a more dangerous place. However in the office, it was a much different environment. We worked hard and some very long hours (I worked from midnight to noon for a solid week) some of which nearly killed me. This old lady is not used to that kind of work:)...Had it not been for my co-workers I never would have lasted. It was a joy to go to work each day. All of us still get together each month for a luncheon. We laughed a lot and cried a little but become closer to each other through it all.

I have been a SAHM most of my adult life, so this experience was a blessing. I would love to find another job I could do. My health doesn't allow for standing, lifting, or much stooping (bad back) and a 58 year old female with no job experience and no degree doesn't stand a chance. I may be a computer whiz but no one wants to take my word for that. LOL

So this is a start to my new beginning to the blog world again. I hope to do a better job at posting more often than I did when I started this endeavor. Hope all my followers will return someday and I would welcome any new ones. Bless all who I meet here and My God bring you joy and happiness through the things you enjoy the most.
