What's been happening around here? Well, a lot of nothing. Of the 4 people in this house, 3 of us have been down and out. On New Year's Eve, we had a little get together. In the midst of the fun there was a little brush fire. My husband played hero and sustained burns on his calf that extend from just below his knee to his ankle. He's been hobbling since.
Unsure of how long he would be out of commission, I took it upon myself to take down the outdoor Christmas decorations. I could not let our home be one that donned Christmas lights year round. I pulled something in my neck and shoulder that has reminded me that I am not a spring chicken.
The smallest member of the household has been taken down by allergies. She is miserable and when she is miserable, the whole house suffers. Ahhh, the joys of parenting.
When I awoke this morning to send the teen off to school, I decided that I can no longer let these pitfalls get the best of me. I am playing catch-up regardless of what ailments surround me.
I have been thinking about this blog a lot. I have also been considering what I want to do with Associated Content and my submissions. My New Year's resolution, so to speak. I broached the subject on myspace prior to Christmas. I laid out a plan and I must put it into action.
All of the marketing content information I have scoured through states that you must not let your content stagnate. Keep it fresh. Okay, I'm lacking now, but I have not lost my desire.
It's all in the planning. Once the plan is laid out, I must follow through.
First, do not injure yourself when you want to make a commitment to something. Check. Second, do not inform your family of your plans lest they might sabotage you. Check.
Third, if you are injured, and your family needs you too, all else must be back burnered. Check.
All kidding aside, I had a thought about how 2008 has started out: I'm getting all the bad stuff out of the way early! The rest of the year will be smooth sailing!
