I find that a lot of the time I don’t really feel like writing a whole blog post but have a bunch of really small things I want to say so I think I am going to start a new “series” here on my blog….called “Things On My Mind” obviously. They’ll be short. They might be interesting. They might not be. So here goes…
#1 | I posted on Facebook yesterday that I love my job (waitressing). And I do. But by no means do I consider it to be permanent. I’m still going to find a way to write my ass off and publish and make money doing it. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to do with my life. I’m just a little torn now as to what I want to write. I have a fabulous idea for a sci-fi/fantasy/post-apocalyptic novel. I mean, it is a great idea. But I also write steamy romance stuff really well. I have no idea how I come up with my ideas. So, the writing thing? It’s still happening.
#2 | There is a cat – actually two of them I think – living in my garage. Despite the fact that I already have 3 cats, I really want to catch them and bring them inside. My cats would freak out. But I feel so bad for those kitties! I’ve started feeding them so at least they aren’t starving. And the garage is filled with old blankets and old clothes so I’m pretty sure that they have found somewhere warm to huddle when it is cold outside. But I want them to be warm. It’s just wrong that kitties don’t have a home!
#3 | People need to treat each other better. Just because someone is having a bad day or is in a pissy mood doesn’t mean it is ok to make someone else feel bad. If you have to say something, be nice about it. Don’t bitch them out. Especially while they are working. Save it until later. Don’t be snarky just because it will make YOU feel better. Bite your tongue. Other people have their own shit to deal with and the slightest snippy comment from you could make it worse. Be nice. It’s better for everyone all around.
#4 | I am such a horrible housekeeper. This is one of the things that I want to change in the new year. Well, now would be good, too, but I need to figure out how I am going to make this change. Maybe I’ll try the FlyLady thing again. I remember that I used to do that like a hundred years ago. It worked while I did it. I’ve never been good at keeping a clean house. I used to blame it on the kids (and my ex) but I can’t do that anymore. I have to face the fact that it is mostly just me. And people can change. I don’t care what anyone says. If I didn’t believe that people could change (i.e. me) I’d have to give up on a lot of stuff. So, I’m going to work really hard to change my housekeeping ways. I am hoping that my bullet journal thing will be helpful with that.
#5 | I’ve mentioned that I am not a very Christmasy person. I’m really not. But there is one thing I love – ugly Christmas sweaters. So I think that next year I am going to do a 25 Days of Ugly Christmas Sweaters challenge. I’m going to get 25 ugly Christmas sweaters (or make them – not the actual sweater but how hard can it be to sew things on a sweater?) and wear a different one for each day of December, up to and including Christmas day. Since I work in a restaurant I do have to follow some dress code but we are allowed to wear sweaters over our t-shirts – they just can’t have zippers or hoods. So, I can do that. Cardigans are sweaters, right? I’m going to collect them throughout the year. I think my customers will get a real kick out of it.
#6 | This song is awesome. I don’t care what anyone says. I have a serious obsession with it lately. Don’t even ask me how many times I’ve played it in the past week. LOL. I’ve got the hubby obsessed with it now, too. It’s even on his 80s playlist on Spotify. I dare you to listen and see if it doesn’t get stuck in your head!
