New Year, Really?

You know what happens when you move? If your not careful, you lose all ability to tell time. Yep. I'm sure it's a proven fact. Somewhere. On the web.

So, it occurs to me that it's already 2011 and I really haven't thought much about my goals for the year. I know, I'm SO behind. I mean, I know I want to lose some weight (hello, I'm IN Hawaii). I know I need to finish Dividing Spirits so I can move on the next novel in the series. I know there are probably several other things that I'm forgetting.

Time just gets away from me sometimes. Part of the reason I haven't considered my goals too seriously yet is that I am an organized person (usually), and right now my life is total chaos.

I live in a hotel room with two rambuncious (but cute!) preschoolers, a feisty and demanding seven-month-old, and an equally exhausted and frustrated husband. We don't know what exactly is happening with my husband's job, we're trying to get out of getting screwed over by the housing department, and I'm trying to "manage" the daily stuff like homeschooling, cleaning, writing without all the stuff we're used to having around.

Obviously, I don't thrive in chaos.

Anyway, the best way to beat the blues is to get on top of them. Be proactive. Take and running start and LEAP. Weeeeeeee...and see where you land.


On Friday, come back to see what I come up with for my goals. I'll also probably go ahead and post last year's goal post for those of you who don't know all about "setting goals". There is a formula. It works. Most of the time.

Happy Hump Day! See ya right before the weekend. God bless!


  1. I hope you guys get a house soon... I can't imagine being in a hotel room with two kids, a baby AND the husband. Wow. Your optimistic outlook is great! Good Luck!

  2. Hang in there! I can't imagine that either, but sending up a quick prayer for you all. Looking forward to Friday's post!

  3. Stay the Course , Girl! You are doing a fabulous job- Chaos brings order, eventually!:)

  4. Weeeee! Love it! Moving brings out the chaos, and it takes a LONG time to feel normal again. Just take it one day at a time. :)
