I keep having all these big ideas and dreams about what I want to do with my life. And they tend to fizzle. I am too comfortable where I am. It’s scary to take those big steps. My college computer had a fortune taped to the monitor that said: Don’t be afraid to take that big step, but that monitor is gone now.

My contact point at Mongoose is leaving the company. I never have seen a contract. She said she’ll pass on my information, but not to who or when. Hoping not to get lost in the shuffle there, but I don’t know that I can do much to prevent it until I get an email from whoever the new person in charge of freelancers turns out to be.

I have all this web design information, but I rarely take the time to study it. Or, more importantly, practice it. The few folks who’ve expressed interest in my doing web work for them have fallen through. And it’s just so much easier to relax than worry about it.

I’m stuck in the trap of comfortable and stable. Like so many people. It’s hard to break through to movement from a full stop. But I want to keep learning, and doing and striving, so I’ll have to find a way.

So, apparently cabins in the Hocking Hills must be rented for two nights at a time on summer weekends. There goes that anniversary idea. We’ll have to take a look at what’s available more locally in the way of a cheap but fun getaway. Too bad about the heat, or we could hit the Ren Faire. We’re saving that for cooler days, though.

Looking forward to seeing all the family on Saturday. Birthday cake, ice cream, children playing and maybe even a round or two of Munchkin. 😉 Have to buy presents at work tomorrow. Yay, last minute shopping.

Hurt my back last week, went to the chiropractor. My spine is apparently lovely, but my hips are crooked. Knew that, we’re working on fixing it. Back finally feels better today.

Getting bored of food again. Wanting more variety. Craving cheese(pizza, mac & cheese, Parmesan covered pasta) a lot lately, too. Joints about the same as always. Not terrible, but not ideal.

The school jobs are a total no-go. I am once again pondering data entry. I’ve only ever done bits of it at my jobs, but I wonder about doing it full time(or ya know, part time, I like flexible schedules). It just doesn’t seem like it’d be fulfilling, unless it was at a really good place. Inertia tends to win. Especially when I have ‘decent’ hours at work and only tiny bits of non-retail experience.

Lots of rambling today, I think I’m done now. See you next week.
