i keep telling myself that i'm going to blog. but obviously that hasn't happened. remember that "me" time i talked about a few weeks back over on Liv's blog. yeah. i havent been doing that. with all the stuff (read:CRAP!) that's been going on in my life, i simply work and come home and take care of my kids. and man, my attitude shows it. it's gotten so ugly.
so i decided to get together with some girls on thursday, and i'm so glad i did. i'm slowly clawing my way out of this pit i've allowed myself to be drug into. i need to put myself back on my list of things to care about (and take care of) so, i'm going to set some goals for myself. things like:
blog at least 4 times a week
bake something at least once a week (to bless someone with)
start on my summer reading list
drink more water
remember to take my vitamins
monitor my blood sugar regularly (so it doesnt get up to 452 again)
take my insulin regularly
go out with the girls every other week
dig out my 35mm canon and start shooting again (there is just something about caputring things with film that i love)
now i know that those dont seem like very big goals, but compared to what i've been doing, it kind of seems daunting. i finally realized that something needed to change, as i was baking cinnamon rolls last night for a bridal shower that a friend of mine is hosting. i realized that i hadnt baked anything to bless someone with since Easter. i've been slowly allowing myself to be overcome by the issues in my life.
thanks to all of you girls who have sent me encouragment and are praying.
especially Nessa, who took time to talk to me for over an hour the other week. y'all have no idea how much it means to me. and how much it has helped.
