Hanging In There. By a Thread.

This new school year is kickin' my tush already!  Papers, meetings, forms, homework, schedules, fees...and yet MORE papers.  UGH!  There should be a once a week...or once a month...paperwork policy.  You want me to know something?  Tell me on the 2nd Friday of each month, please :)

My light at the end of this tunnel (aka this week)...I have a photo shoot this weekend with a family I just adore.  I'm so excited!

And guess what - my baby is turning two on the 25th.  TWO.  I have an Elmo cake to make!

Another thing - I had an idea yesterday that I simply MUST try to patent.  Anyone know anything about that process?  I actually hold a couple of patents from my past life as an engineer, but it was simpler then.  I filled out form xyz, and "the people" took care of the rest.  I just got a letter saying, "Congratulations, you now have a patent".  

I need some "people" again.  However, if I actually had "people", I think I'd probably rather put them to work emptying my dishwasher or scrubbing the floor.  

Do you know what dawned on me recently?  I can't remember the last time I pulled out my camera to just go out and shoot for the joy of it.  Ever since starting a business, it's become more of a job than a passion.  I need to get back to it.  I feel like the air is a little too thin...or I'm missing a limb or something when I'm not clicking away.  

Do you know what else I realized?  The "fat" jeans I bought last winter since I hadn't yet lost my baby weight...they're too small.  And I have roughly 5 long sleeved shirts to get me through the winter.  And my eldest loud mouth child said to me "Mom, why do I see you wearing that all the time?"

I saw a blog recently that had a "donate" button on it - it brought the reader to Paypal, where they could send her money!  I'm considering that idea.  Either that, or I'm considering renaming this blog "Call Her Naked".  But then I'd have to do all sorts of TV interviews in the buff to make it "real".  A little donation from all my readers to keep me in threads...it would be worth your money.  BE.LIEVE. me ;-) 

Better yet, I'm considering doing the "Smart For Life" diet that a couple of my friends are on.  They look incredible!  I wanna look incredible.  Instead, I look positively ordinary and old and heavy.  Blech.  

Do you know what I did the other day?  Bought my first CHRISTMAS gift of the year.  How is it possible that I need to consider Christmas in September?  I don't know, but I do.

Ahh, so this is my life this week.  Crazy.  Scatter-brained.  Distracted.  Trying to do 15 things at one time.

Welcome to the school year and my crazy brain!

Oh yeah. I'm right there with you on all of those. You know, I can remember a time when I only had 5 Christmas presents to buy? I was an adult, and only 5 presents. No hubby, no kids, no teachers, 1 in-law. Just 5. 4 for my family members and 1 for my boss. That was it. Life was so simple in the dark ages of my innocence. (On the other hand it was kinda boring too!)

Thanks for the Christmas reminder! LOL! I guess I should generate a list at least. Perhaps I could start shopping sooner than I have in the past. BTW...last week I started Core4 which is a diet plan. I lost 4 pounds and 7 inches in one week. I also started Zumba. While the kids are starting off to school again-I thought what better way to mark a new beginning in my life. Here's to a new US!!! Good luck and keep us posted if you do the Smart for Life plan.

I think of those times as the high-contrast part of my life. If I am growing into some masterpiece (by the grace of GOD!) this is the part that is heaped with blues and oranges, black-blue and fire-magenta. Rough brush strokes and pallet-knife scratches. Who knows if it might be the striking, unmistakable, center of interest of the whole painting. You go, girl. Masterpieces are dirty work. {High-five}

That's a lot of info. You sound like you need to go over to Starbuck's. Alone.
