Which is one way of saying that it's time for my first 'New Year, New You' update.
For those unaware, my daughter (husband, 3 grandchildren, 1 dog) & I (1 dog, 5 cats) share a household. Hence, my private space is limited, physically as well as spiritually (daughter aware but ignores, husband blissfully ignorant, grandchildren too young). Due to this limitation, I keep 'stuff' pared down to a minimum...no clutter, a little dust, everything in its' place.
My learning 'disabled' self firmly agrees with Deb: no magic happening in a dirty, cluttered space!
A few of the more noticeable Big Rocks I juggle are Time & Shadow.
Time: This involves day-time time-sucks (such as Facebook) which I need to slash drastically *sigh*. While I recognize I spend far too long socializing, the Time just creeps up. (As I type, grandchild #2 whines for applesauce & cheese while grandchild #3 fusses because I won't hold her Doddle-Pad for her). Night-time is an easy solution of cutting out Tv-time so I can fill it with Craft, crafts, & exercise (providing I remember to turn the heater on in the exercise room).
Shadow: I abhor telling anyone my business. Ever. This includes....everything. I do not make it a practice to tell people where I have worked, what i craft, where I live, am going, planning on doing....it especially includes Craft-work. I am contemplating joining in on a book-list blog of the 'what i am going to read during 2012'. I have avoided listing any books as it's giving me cotton-mouthed kittens at the thought of actually stating publicly what I am going to do.Partly, I think this is due to difficulty explaining what I experience, given my particular learning disabilities, my universe is truly my own. Mostly, I don't know what Shadow is all about. Frigga & I will be working on this, methinks, come this Saturday night.
I hope this post makes any sort of sense...between some ADD, lack of caffeine, & 2 busy grandchildren....
