Monday Ramblings

Happy Monday! Saturday my son met Santa!  He was so exited to meet him until it was actually his time to get his picture taken.  I wish I had the picture because his look was unforgettable. The minute he walked up to him he froze. He wouldn't sit on his lap. He stood in front of him with his shoulders tight and slouched forward with such a nervous smile on his face. It was classic and will make a perfect scrapbook page.


 I took the weekend off because we had a couple things to do Saturday. I took Sunday off, just because…I spent most of the day just thinking. Now that I've applied to school, I've been thinking about all the things I've wanted to  in my lifetime, mainly in the last 10 years. I'm determined to finish. It's so hard for me to just pick one focus though. I'm so afraid of being bored to tears. Here's a few thing I've considered:


  1. Chef
  2. Interior designer
  3. Architect
  4. Scrapbook embellishment designer
  5. Fashion Designer
  1. Stylist
  2. Graphic Designer
  3. Author (working on, even if it never makes it past my computer I will be happy)
  4. Magazine/print editior
  5. Nurse (this was one of my "I should do it because someone said I would be good at it" careers)
  6. Computer Programmer ( parenthesis above)
  7. Web designer (see parenthesis above)
  8. Model. yeah right!!!! One can dream right? I've got a great walk…or so I've been told since I was a teen. Even now as an adult I get complimented at least once a week. It's actually kind of weird to me, but hey….what can I do.
  9. Song writer
  10. Wedding designer
  11. Party planner
  12. Personal shopper


Feel free to check out my Pinterest Boards as proof. *smile* It's kind of dangerous too, lol. So many beautiful things in one place.



The list goes on…it's late but I'm sure I can add many more. Just asked my husband. He is very grateful that I've finally chosen something to go to school for. He is doubtful but I  can't blame him though, I'm doubtful, but I'm determined to it. I think it will be a good thing, especially since I'm going for what I want .I feel like such an oddball, though. The thought of settling and just doing one thing makes me cringe. I think my brain in wired differently. I don't want to be "ordinary" anymore. I want to be me, and the me that I know, and have forgotten about, has many many interersts. That's why this blog was born.  At least all the ones I've want(ed) to do have one thing in common….they are all different forms of creativity.


I've got a few posts this week. One craft, and a few recipes, maybe a couple of other things not sure yet.... One is a super easy turkey stock. Yum! Turkey was on sale for 48 cents a pound at my grocery store. I had to snatch one up at that price. The smallest one they had was 14lbs so I will be eating turkey for an eternity. That's okay though. It was worth it because I really missed making Thanksgiving dinner this year.


Until next time!
