We just returned from a week's vacation in was so peaceful and wonderfully relaxing and I really wish we could have stayed another week.  Once I get my pics uploaded, I will share all the wonderfulness with you.

For now, I wanted to share with you some changes going on right here at the old blog.  I have been blogging since 2008 and really haven't found my "spot" in the blogging world.  I originally started this blog as a scrapbooking/stamping blog, but just can't find the time to craft as much as I want to so low and behold the blog got put to the side and I didn't post as often as I wanted to.  I thought geez...I have so many other things I could blog about too, and have, on occasion, but for some reason I thought I needed to find one topic and just stick to it (I know I read that somewhere on some blogging tip blog).  Well, you know what?  This is my blog and I enjoy my theraputic (to me) postings to my wonderful 29 followers so I am going to blog about what I want, when I want (sort of).  Afterall, some of my favortie blogs to read are the ones that do just that...a little bit of everything and eventhough I don't know these women, I feel like they are life long friends because I can relate to their rantings as if they were talking about me.

So...if you have been reading my blog for any amount of time (and if you haven't, now you will know) I  suffer from complete disorganization syndrom (CDS)...not really a diagnosed syndrom, but it should be.  My house is a disorganized mess there is stuff everywhere (spilling out into everything I do or me), I have too much stuff, I am always late (because I can never find anything), I am always running in a thousand directions, have too much on my plate and my stress level is through the roof.  Everything I just mentioned drives me insane!  I am slowly trying to fix room at a time, one habit at a time...starting with this blog.  I have a organized, well thought out, plan.  Ok, it is a list (one of my many...but those help me function).  I wrote down everything I want to talk about and assigned a day to each here is what my new and improved, well thought out, highly organized blog format will look like: 
  • Makeover Monday (organization, room remodels, etc.)
  • Tell it all Tuesday (free for all, whatever I feel like telling you...daily life stuff)
  • Weight Loss Wednesday (my journey, excercise and  healthy recipes)
  • Thrifty Thursday (saving money and getting out of debt...with a vengenance)
  • Friends with Flair Friday (Unity Stamp Co. Style!) (cards, layouts etc with Unity Stamps)
  • Scrappy Saturday (layouts hopefully completed on my dedicated 1 night of scrapping)
  • Simply Sunday (another free for all)
Now of course I am flexible, there may be days I don't post, I haven't scrapped/stamped or don't have anything to say...but I am going to try to stick to the above as best I can.  I figured it would make my love for blogging easier if I knew what I was going to talk about when...that is it (and I love organization and lists...I strive for it {and fail} everyday!)

Change is always good, and as a reader (yes, I'm one of those who actually reads what bloggers write) it makes it more interesting! In fact, I was thinking of what I want to do with my blog also. But hey, it's your blog, you can do what you want with it, regardless of what those 'tips' say to do!
Hope it works out for you...and it looks like a fantastic schedule of topics (hmmm...I need to take note)! *smile*

Hey Tracy,

I didn't know you were blogging! I'm sure I'll enjoy your posts. I have wanted to try it for a while but didn't know what I wanted to blog about. Now that I have a topic, I'm really enjoying it!

I'll tell the boys you're thinking of them!
