Nine Years Ago

Good Morning, Friends.  

At 5:00AM this morning, I woke up and made my coffee, fought the cats off my desk (and away from my coffee), and then decided to read some of my older stuff. 

I had completely forgotten about the blog that I started several years ago called "The Adventures of Myself".  And when I say it was a blog, it was literally one post.  What happened, I can assume, is that graduate school started back up and life happened.  I got busy and forgot about it, which is typical for me.  

Nearly a decade later, I am going to attempt to not quit what I start.  It was a goal nine years ago, and I am going to continue with it into 2020.  

Below is a copy and pasted version of "The Adventures of Myself" and the one post that I wrote on January 4, 2011.  I was a newlywed at the time and in graduate school full-time.  Its been a lifetime since then, but my goals this year are pretty much the same.  

Here is to 2020 and actually doing the things that are my goals.

So Come On...

There are only four days left in 2019.  How are you going to spend them?  I am planning out several things for 2020, and I cannot wait to get started on the New Year.  Hence, The Lesson Plans for Living.  

I was going to wait until after New Years 2020 to post this, but I am feeling rather nostalgic about things right now.  So here we go!

I just did something that I've wanted to do for a couple of years... About 15 minutes ago, I renewed my domain and I'm writing once again.  I am so proud of myself for taking this opportunity and this leap of faith despite not having everything figured out quite yet.

I have created this place as an outlet to write nearly three years ago and then I got busy with Life and it fell to the wayside, as did several other ideas.  I am the self-appointed Queen of Projects, but I am also the worst at finishing anything.  All of my ideas are constantly in progress.  I am OK with this, but aft…
