I cringed on Thursday night when I saw this lovely message, and I just realized that all I could do was make it the best 5 hours and 47 minutes of sleep that I could. I slept and awoke, and met my business-partner-in-crime for a long 13 hour day work day of deliveries all over the southern part of the state. And now that I'm sitting here at 9:30am on a Saturday morning after a glorious 8 hours of sleep, I couldn't be happier that a trip like that doesn't have to happen again for 8 weeks. :) Just sharing a bit of happiness with you...
Speaking of happiness (nice segue, eh?), I'm currently reading The Happiness Project.
Anyway, in the book right now, Gretchen (the author....we're on a first name basis) just finished mentioning that one part of happiness is challenging yourself with something and progressing through goals. For this part of her project, she challenged herself to start a blog, and that got me thinking about this lil' biddy ole blog of mine.
Oh blog of mine, what shall I say? This thing has been around (by some name or another...we all go through phases of change, amiright?) since April of 2008 when I had a lot to ramble on and complain about the pressures of getting an ed degree as well as voice my crushes on Sal. (some of it is embarrassing, but I'm also to lazy to just go delete it all...haha....for example, the first one:
Oh dramatic, emo 20-year-old Courtney). I've spent lots of time away from it, but I'm always lured back into posting. Not because I have awesome, profound things to say...but because I simply like to write.
So, one of the things that Gretchen mentioned with starting her blog was writing something everyday. And I've been good at that in spurts, but I've been really neglectful, too. I battle what I'm sure a lot of bloggers (if I even qualify as that?!?) do in that "Well, I don't have anything exciting or profound to say today." But then when I think over the past week, I know that I could just document my life, and I'll be grateful I did in 5 years just like I'm grateful I did during our time in California and our awesome time in Washington, D.C.
So, here's hoping! And here goes! One post a day! (if possible...if I don't drag this computer to the beach, or there's no wi-fi, or I'm just too busy sleeping in the sun....don't chastise me :)
Also, please be prepared for boring, dull posts that just fill the spot of posting something for that day. Like "Sagan ate all his food before 10am today. He's going to be starving by 3pm."
Get ready for that kind of fun, folks.
