So, I'm curious... How are y'all doing on those New Year's resolutions that you shared at the beginning of the month?
I'm afraid that I'm not doing too well with my "Social Butterfly" goal - or my goal of losing 10 lbs. by March.
I feel a bit like the plump lady in this 1920's cartoon from The New Yorker...
It's not that I truly "wish to be alone." I just haven't managed to find a way to fit in an active social life along with the two main after-work activities which suck up enormous amounts of my time: blogging (and reading/commenting on other blogs) and selling on eBay & Etsy.
Those of you who have full time jobs AND blog AND sell in a shop AND manage to have a social life too - PLEASE tell me how you do it?
I feel like I'm always trying to wear too many hats at once, and it's not a pretty sight...
Hey, thanks for letting me blow off a little steam. I don't mean to be so negative. Actually, there are some Things In My Life That Are Going Well Right Now...
1) I'm LOVING being an empty nester. I was lonely for about 10 minutes - and after I got that out of my system, I have just been really truly enjoying my FREEDOM.
2) Etsy, Etsy, Etsy...How do I love thee? Let me count the ways... Oh, how I adore selling on Etsy! It's the best thing since sliced bread. It's a perfect companion to eBay for me - and I want to thank all of you for nudging me to start selling there.
3) I've been graced with some lovely blog awards recently (thank you La Dama, Piroska, and Lady Cherry!) and am having fun coming up with a little list of bloggers that I'd like to pass the awards on to. I'm a big procrastinator, though, so don't hold your breath for that. In the meantime, take a peek at Lady Cherry's clever awards post: A Night At the BLOscars. She's so witty!
4) I've been doing the online dating thing for the past month, and... Wait a minute, how did this slip into my list of things that are going well? Online dating - Ugh! To be honest, I have been a big fan of online dating in the past and have even had some success with it (short-term, obviously) - but lately the crop of interesting men seems to have dwindled. Maybe it's just me - guess my heart isn't in it.
Or maybe it's just that I'm still looking for this man...
I keep forgetting that the Aqua Velva Man has aged a bit.
And so have I.
Happy Sunday! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week. I promise to put on my Blog Reading hat and find some time to stop by and visit soon!
