Random Thoughts

Good Morning!

I must say I am very excited - I have 50 followers!  I want to thank everyone who has decided to follow this blog.  I am touched and thankful!  (BIG smile here)

 Just had some random thoughts today...

Have you or someone in the family ever lost something important?  We had that happen last night and the four of us were basically tearing the house apart looking for a single item.  The good news is that we did find it! 

It's funny though how looking for one thing leads to cleaning, vacuuming, organizing, and a renewed sense of getting things in order.  Just last night I vacuumed under both couches (don't do that often enough I discovered), re-organized my office drawers, and have several other projects on a list to be done soon.  I tossed two bags of stuff into the trash, found things I had thought I'd lost, and gleaned several pairs of shoes and clothes to give away.  I'm on a mission!   It feels great to get things in order, doesn't it? 

I am deleting my Facebook account this evening or tomorrow.  It's been a difficult decision because I am a social person by nature, but it has become a true distraction to me.  It's not that I don't want to keep up with friends and family, but I find myself straying to Facebook when I need to be accomplishing so many other things!  E-mail and snail mail will have to suffice for keeping in touch.  I trust that I'll keep in touch with those who are closest to me whether I have a Facebook account or not. 

I will still have Twitter updates available in relation to the blog and may put up a Facebook page for the blog at some point, but for now I'm trying to focus more on home and writing.

I hope this finds you and yours well today!  

All my best to you,

Oh boy. Can I relate to what you said today. I'm in the (never-ending) process of trying to put some things in order around our house. And, I'm amazed by how much I come across that I didn't even realize I had.

And, facebook. Well, I'm not AS obsessed with it as I once was. Blogging has taken it's place a bit. But, I definitely find myself wandering to the computer throughout the day 'just to check' and then end up wasting so much time.
