In unprecedented news, as I nibble on my seasonal favorite Terry's (Dark) Chocolate Orange, I decided to come out of my shell and participate in NaBloPoMo. I want to expand my horizons, joined some groups, etc. I am called Churping there. Check out my page and the old picture there. I was a month old. That's my one remaning grandmother and my father's 15 yo sister, legs right up to her long neck. If you're participating, make me a friend.
For those of you who've requested more posts of late, I am trying to acquiesce. For those of you thinking less is more, just continue to ignore me. hehe
My primary goal is to not make this into a Health Crisis of the Day blog and have something additional to blog about and focus on, although health will be a big deal considering how many tests I have coming up.
I haven't blogged about my cats in some time. They'll get theirs.
I need to blog about my relationship with ex's daughter and how that feels.
I don't talk about my son enough. I see our relationship maturing and I need to discuss it.
I read lots of celebrity blogs and I want to quip about them more.
Further, I don't mention or review all the movies I see and how they get me through the week.
Additionally, I have a few art classes left to blog about. I am hoping I have a canvas to be proud of as my oil class comes to an end in two weeks. Plein air ends on Tuesday. I must decide about next semester. And be motivated about painting indoors at home.
Lastly, but probably not, I have not mentioned our big plans for Spring Break which involve a big boat, ports of call, a balcony room, and my mother. Most of those elements are loads of fun. Most.
Hope you enjoy the journey this month. I am hoping it won't be too painful for me to be tied to a schedule! If you have any questions or suggestions, do take over the comments. I'd appreciate the input.
ETA: A participant names Shannon listed these ideas for posts:
