Ch-ch-ch-changes . . .

Early in the Summer, in response to a Mama Kat’s Writers’ Workshop prompt, I posted Thirty Things I Vow to Do This Summer. I was reminded of it when Kisatrtle posted about “How I Did on My Summer To-Do List“. She did pretty well. I didn’t. I was feeling like a slacker until Michele at The Professional Family Manager posted about how “Can’t is not a Four Letter Word”. I happily realized that it’s OK that I didn’t read as many non-fiction books as I intended to this summer, and that I didn’t refinish a single piece of furniture, and that I didn’t brave a heat index of 120 degrees and mutant ninja mosquitoes to watch a play outdoors.

School has started, and there are big changes afoot in the Ballard household, so I’m going to try again with some new plans and goals. Once again, I was inspired by a The “Other” New Year post by Michele (she really is often inspiring, and if you don’t already read her blog you are MISSING IT!). I’m starting a new type of physical therapy for my back and neck pain, I’m working on a diet and exercise plan with my friend Lisa, and my friend Dianna and I are going to do a modified version of FlyLady, which involves talking to each other on the phone to distract us while we’re cleaning. Freakin’ BRILLIANT is what I think of that idea. AND (deep breath) I am considering moving to WordPress. This is HUGE for me, since I still have cute clothes from the eighties that even if they came back in style would never fit on my body even after surgical intervention. I totaled my car last week, and since they no longer make the Saturn Relay I bought a Chevy Uplander, which is the EXACT SAME CAR with a different symbol on the grill. That’s how opposed I am to change.

Just so you know, changes are afoot around here. But slowly and carefully, like a toddler in footy pajamas – and with just that many mishaps 😉 If I weren’t adamantly opposed to auto-play music on blogs I would put David Bowie’s “Changes” on for this post, so just pretend and hum along if you feel so inclined.

  1. Awww, thank you so much for your super-kind compliment! I'm happy you liked the articles. Can't wait to see the new changes going on. And, yes, doing them slowly is great…I think so many times we think, if we want to change something, it has to be done immediately, especially in the fast-past electronic world.

    And now I have David Bowie stuck in my head…. 🙂

  2. yeah, showing my dorkiness, but when I hear "Changes" I think of the song in Shrek ….

    Only thing I know about David Bowie is "Let's Dance" and that uber bizarro Fraggle Rock movie … oh, yeah. Labrynth
