I did it.

I wrote.

I'm really loving it. I bought a large sketch book for a different project, but have designated it my writing book from now on. I adore writing on a big blank sheet of white paper. I even wrote a haiku about it.

Thanks for the support. I plan to write more this week. I just have to get past the board meeting tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. That means wake up time is 4:00 p.m. Why am I still awake? ... good question.

Speaking of board meeting, I always make breakfast for the board. I tried these Blackberry Crumb Bars.

It is incredible. Even better than you think it will be! Yum. I am definitely making it again soon.

Try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised too.

I took a picture of my blackberry crumb bars, but am having trouble downloading it. So, for your viewing pleasure, here are some random snapshots of my life recently.

Came home from a stressful day at work to find this waiting for me. Thanks again, husband!

Here's the Deal.

I need to write.

So much. Demasiado. Eterei. Necesito escribir.

It just seems like a very big, important part of me is missing.

With all this feeling yucky all the time, not being able to exercise, and trying to eat well, I have decided I'm going to do something for my soul. Maybe what's wrong with my body is reflecting my need to do more for the inner little me. Does that make sense or do I just sound schizophrenic?

Whatever I sound like, I have made the decision. I am going to write. What has kept me from writing? Too many excuses. I could go on and on with too many excuses that don't matter. Not in the slightest. If I want to do it, then I will, and I want to.

I must start out slow though. Three times per week. That's my goal right now. Every time I write, I'll report it on this blog. At least 30 minutes each time too. None of this, I wrote a paragraph good for me stuff.

Anyone else have a goal?
