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.

Spring Cold April 26, 2012

I’ve pretty much been ill with a cold and cough since my last post. It’s getting better, but it’s still not gone. So there has been lots of hot apple cinnamon herbal tea with a Mexican cinnamon stick for extra spice. And some OJ and Sprite for the vitamin C. And the first few days, some Alka Seltzer Cold. I did do Wheat Grass Juice on Monday, but it just drained my nose into my chest. Nearly gone though, I shall prevail.

Nearly May, and Mother’s Day and ten years since I graduated from Denison. Our reunion is in June, and right now we’re trying to sort out which of the Betonians are able to come and what we’ll do. So many so far away (we Miss you!) or with brand new babies. Congrats to all the new (or second time) parents! We’ll miss you, too.

Also going to Sage’s release party tomorrow, her book: Love Sucks is being released tomorrow by Musa Publishing. In any eBook format you could possibly want. Congrats Sage!

Rich and I did give in and start playing WoW for real again. I’m almost to 50 pets, and and have 33 mounts. But I’ve gotta learn to play Plants vs Zombies better. Considering rezzing my old account and combining it with my new one, but we’ll see. Might be too much effort. Might not.

Still waiting on contract from Mongoose Publishing. Really excited for the chance to work with them. 🙂 They’re super busy, though, so I’m patient.

ConGlomeration April 19, 2012

This past weekend I went on a trip with friends to Louisville to a little SciFi/Fantasy convention called ConGlomeration. We had a great time. The dealers room had lovely corsets, fun shiny jewelry and loads of games, books and other assorted trinkets. I discovered that Victorian style corsets, with diagonal stays fit my ribs better than the traditional vertical ones. Unfortunately, these all had ruffles. Maybe next time.

As is tradition with this group of friends, we threw a great party on Saturday night for the con-goers. The music was loud, the costumes were great and we didn’t get a single noise complaint. Thanks to a young lady who got promoted for her good work on that front.

Work goes up and down, but mostly boring. Still waiting on an assignment from Mongoose. Health is doing alright, though my diet is fading again. So many dairy and chocolate cravings lately. Can hardly believe it’s almost May.

I applied to two jobs this week. One doing data entry at a place that helps people and one as a proofreader for Mongoose Publishing. The latter of which seems more likely to work out, as they already emailed me back with details and I’ve expressed my continued interest. So, that will be cool.

Back on the yoga, tai chi, and meditation train, as well as working harder to eat better. Yes, I still have more Girlscout cookies to go, but I’ll be better about rationing the rest. Gotta have some incentives.

Spring is definitely here. 80 degree weather this week. And tornadoes. Mustn’t forget the tornadoes and hail on Sunday. But the birds are happy and the grass is green. I have even opened the blinds and turned on the AC.

Hurray! 150 Posts!
