‘First you jump off a cliff and then you build your wings on the way down.’
~Ray Bradbury

Totally crashed today! Couldn’t do one more thing. I have been burning the candle at both ends for so long that I decided I needed ONE day of doing nothing. And guess what?

The world. did. not. come. to. an. end.

Imagine my surprise.

While lying on the sofa cuddled with my dog, wrapped in my favorite blanket, I started thinking long and deep about things to come.

My term as President to my local RWA chapter has come to an end. I presided over my last meeting Saturday and, although, I have enjoyed my two years at the helm, I am glad to pass the torch to someone else. I have accomplished about 98% of what I wanted to and learned so much that I have and will continue to carry over to my new job and my life in general. And I thank the Rosebuds for all their support. It has been fun. But now time to move on and concentrate on other things in my life.

Soon 2006 will come to an end. Is it just me or are the years flying by like a whirlwind? Have I accomplished what I wanted to in other areas of my life? Not by a long shot. I have not lost all that weight I wanted to. I have not finished one book I have started. My house is even more disorganized now that I work full time.

My name is Sandy and I am a disappointment.

Two people have told me two different stories about how they were more productive when they were working full time. They kept lists and goals and followed those lists and goals. I used to be so much more organized and it’s time to get back on the bandwagon.

I don’t want to wait until the new year to start making my lists and goals. I want to get started right now and see how much I can accomplished BEFORE the end of year. So, this week, I will put together my plan and put it into effect. And to achieve my goals, I will set a daily plan and a weekly plan. You just watch. Root for me!!

Had so much fun last night. Went to a friend’s housewarming and met her family and it was a riot. Her sys-in-law is a hoot and my dh absolutley fell in love with her. His remark was that we need more people in this world like her. Her hubby says that it is really something when she gets together with her sisters as they are all alike. Would I love to be a fly on the wall at those family gatherings! :hiding: My cheeks are still sore from laughing so much.

Have a good Monday!
