Holy Lost-a-Year, Batman!

So...somehow I seem to have gone over a year without posting on this blog - make that 2 years!  In my defense, it's been a VERY busy couple of years here!  We gained THREE new grandbabies in that time, which I am LOVING!  My son married a  lovely young lady who had a 2 year-old (now 4yo), my stepson and his wife had a son, and my daughter had a son!  So now we have FOUR grand-blessings that are absolutely the lights of our life!  We couldn't love them more if we tried.  

I was also diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease and have been in and out of treatment for that, which I may talk about more here as time goes on.  It's been a whirlwind of learning new terms, more medical jargon that I thought I'd EVER use (even working for a doctor!), and vacillating between feeling horrible and "Eh, ok" depending on the hour/day.  More on that later...

Anyway, just thought I'd pop over and see if this blog was still here (thanks for holding my spot, Google!) and say hi to those still hanging around. I'm seriously amazed that I'm still getting hits here after this long of a break!  *mindblown*  Anyway, thank you!!

Hello, Mornings!

I'm a total night-owl.  I seem to get a burst of energy around 10pm, which doesn't make for great mornings-after!  I can lay in bed and read until 2-or-3am with absolutely no problem.  Of course, that means I am certainly NOT getting up at any decent hour.  I'm very well aware of how important sleep is, and that I really need to use my time more wisely - which means not sleeping until 9 or 10am and rolling into work at noon.  (don't hate me because I have flex hours!)

I'm kind of so over making New Years Resolutions, but I AM going to try to make better use of my time in 2015.  I found this awesome resource that I'm hoping will help.  I plan to use my blog to document this process, as well as my other 2015 goals (not resolutions!) including completing more craft projects, my Goodreads Challenge of 50 books for the year, maybe learning some new crafts, finishing some Pinterest projects, and some super-awesome family stuff coming this year!  *squeeee!*  Oh!  And my new Dollar Tree obsession (did you know how much amazing stuff you can get there??)

Join me and the other Hello Morning! ladies if you'd like to get your mornings started on the right foot in 2015.  Leave a comment and let me know that you've joined so I can keep an eye out for ya!


Here are some of their tips for making the most of your mornings.
