So, all these ideas floating in my head. All these ideas flowing out onto my blog, or in my journals. Business ideas, product ideas, website ideas, writing ideas, education ideas, financial ideas. But idea alone don’t get me anywhere. I need to make plans, decide on steps, break them down into manageable bits instead of grandiose ideas that intimidate me just to look at them. Whenever a phrase comes to mind about time, in this case: time is at a premium, another quote comes to mind: Time is the Fire in which we Burn – from Star Trek Generations, the villian Soran, referencing a poem by Delmore Schwartz. I am so busy already, that I trying to make the time for new things is often overwhelming.

Rich gave me a career change suggestion the other night that I am considering looking into. Retail is not what I want to do with my life, but I do love books and stability. I just don’t know if it is a feasible move given my schedule and per hour requirements. It could be, though.  Mike asked me about working for him “full time.” We are still negotiating what that means and the pros and cons of it.

Health was a bit rocky the last few weeks, my shoulders were complaining loudly and constantly, so I ended up on a Prednisone burst to calm them down. Back off it now, and feeling better, but not 100% yet. Got a few mosquito bites last night, but given it’s August, I was probably due.

Made spelt bread this week, just finished it up today. It’s thick and heavy, but with a bit of garlic and oregano, it’s fairly tasty. Pondering a cheese-less spelt pizza in my near future, with spinach and broccoli. Had one from whole wheat the other day at Whole World and it was very good. Probably doing sweet potato, asparagus and broccoli for dinner tonight.

Life is good.

Stay on Target… May 27, 2010

Things are progressing as normal. Currently sitting in a waiting room at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s while Rich gets a Barium test to see if they need to remove any extra colon when he gets his second surgery. The lamp next to me does not appear to be plugged in.  Odd… not that it’s needed, just… odd. Surgery in 12 days and counting.

Shoring up our member site, and shopping cart at Bookup. Still waiting on an integration solution. But the removal of copy protection and return to registration has gone smoothly and sales are up. Next up, website modernization. It is far too difficult for customers to find what they want, and that includes the product catalog.

I’ve hit a stall with writing, and starting my own money-creating blog/website, but I’m still chipping away at the How. I’m doing far more journal writing than fiction these days. About to run out of flash fiction again for my website, will have to do something about that at least.

My health is good, almost back up to previous weight, just a few pounds shy, so feel better about that. No drugs in a few months now. Little aches here and there. Elbow continues to be my bane. But all in all, I’m doing quite well, and can do all the things I want to do.

My B&N Store has added some new sections and rearranged (almost) everything. I think I can find all the sections, but it’s going to take some getting used to. I picked up a few extra shifts over the next couple weeks, so that’ll help.

If my options go well, I’ll have some extra money for bills in June. Knock down a couple remaining medical bills without having to take money out of the investing account yet. I imagine we may end up having to do that, but for the moment, I’m hoping to just take out the profit. We shall see.

Summer is here, life is good, friends and family abound.

Food of the week: (it’s been a while, hasn’t it?): Spring Rolls (not exactly alkaline, but they’re veggie, right? 😉 )

Things to do March 25, 2010

A lot of balls in the air. A lot of contacts to be made. A lot of plans to complete. Mind is swirling with ideas. Work, writing, blogging, investing, websites, marketing, bills, insurance, jobs, family. So much to do and never enough time in the day.

Spring is here. Easter is coming. A time of renewal and rebirth. Things are changing and growing, always. Now is the time to get everything in order and begin again. Every day is a new day, a new chance to start over and move forward.

Life is what you make of it. Now is the time to create the life I want.

Who am I? January 20, 2010

What if I’m not who I thought I was? What if everything is different? What if I’m not meant to do what I always thought I was? Where do I go from here?

I find myself wondering about my purpose. I find myself wondering about the phrase “Writers Write” because I don’t really write any more. I mean, I don’t really write stories any more. I write about my life. I write in blogs and journals. I post flash fiction pieces on my website, but they’re not really stories, they’re just snippets that slipped out onto paper during the summer. I submit stories, but they’re old stories and they only garner rejection. I am tired of trying to polish them.

Job. Career. Passion. Purpose. What am I here to do?

New Year. New You. Who am I?

Where are we now? January 12, 2010

It’s almost halfway through January already. I was quite productive today. I’ve paid taxes, settled our liquidation of Ameriprise investments, paid bills, balanced budget, checked on drug prices, submitted two stories, and updated all relevant records, filled out insurance paperwork, and this is my second blog post.

I’ll be attending a convention this weekend here in Columbus. Our Ghost of Honor is Amelia Earhart, so among the usual fare, will be paper airplanes and tiki decorations. I plan to relax, eat plenty and enjoy myself.

Infection cleared up, thank you antibiotics. And thank you, Kroger for making them free. Appetite coming back. All is well.

Will you miss me if I’m gone? December 23, 2009

Feeling like this blog’s point has run its course. Next week will be thirty weeks, and the posts are even fairly boring to me these days. Does anyone find them interesting anymore? I hardly have any views in the stat block. One a week, maybe. Perhaps it should be relegated to the realm of random life blogging. I’ve got my webpage blog for writing blog stuff, so I don’t need to do that here. Alkaline eating is basically a habit now, though of course, I’m not as rigid as when I started this journey. I still think I’m doing fairly well at it, and weekly summations aren’t doing much one way or the other for will power. So I think, that’s it then. I’ll still post here, but just random life stuff.  Let me know if you’ll desperately miss my food reports. 😉
