  For  a while I ate slept and dreamed Pinterest.  I was pinning in my dreams.  That's how bad it was.  I blame it on the insomnia that had me up at 3 a.m.  Thankfully this last stint has helped regulate my sleep a little better.  My Pinterest addiction is slowing down. :)

  I decided to take some time each day to go through and edit my boards.  I'm keeping what I've tried that works and discarding the rest.  Especially those recipes-discovered my kids don't do spicy or mushy foods-AT ALL)  Sad.  I LOVE spicy foods. 

  Alot of things I've adopted are going very well.  I got my mom binder up and going.  I even set up a schedule for myself so I don't start feeling overwhelmed with my 9000 projects and to-do items.  The quickie command center has been a FANTASTIC life saver.  No more looking for or tripping over shoes or bags.  No more yelling/behavior issues.  No more repeating the same thing over and over.  THANK YOU!  The once a month shopping thing is also going well.  Still not spending less but not spending more.  Staying on budget.  The once a month cooking....yeah, that's not working out.  The most I've managed is to cook for two weeks in advance.  I have been letting the children choose what gets cooked and that has been wonderful.  They get a choice and often, they are excited about dinner.  No more wasted food.  HUZZAH!

So...I've been in the hospital again.  This time they yanked out my gall bladder.  I told them, "Take everything else cuz I'm not comin back!"  Sick of the hospital.  Sick of being sick. 

I've not wallowed in self pity or made excuses for anything.  I've been carrying on, business as usual, much  to the horror and dismay of my family members and friends who keep telling me to "SIT DOWN AND BE STILL."  This is a foreign concept to me.  I've always been go, go, go.  So I guess maybe I overdid it a little.  Now, I'm sitting down.  But not exactly still.  The first hospitalization, I got up and went back to work.  The second, I slowed down, didn't go back to work but did start a side business and tried this at home mom thing.  This time, I'm sitting and meditating...for now.  I can't sit and do nothing.  It's not in me.

A friend gave me the idea of getting back into journaling and sharing how I got into doing my side business.  Since I have nowhere to go and nothing really to do, the next few posts will be about that.  Sorry if that bores you :)
