Sometimes I just don't get it. I could spend a day hardly doing anything strenuous or doing very little of anything and the next day I have the hardest time getting out of bed. Other times, like yesterday and this morning, I could be going all day long and stay out late, but then be up to watch the sunrise. Go figure. But then again, on days like this, I'm likely to be sleep from 2 to 5 pm or so! But it was a beautiful morning this morning. I watched Starting Over. I kinda like that program. Then a couple of travel shows that went to Germany and Sicily. Interesting. Then I got up and blog hopped to the rising sun. Unfortunately, my apartment faces northwest, so I could really see the sun rising, however, it was a beautiful view overlooking the Mississippi river anyway.

Today I gotta work on those edits (you know, the prodigal manuscript), then I want to knock off items on my to-do list. I put together a list last week because it seemed like I was just super busy all the time, but like not much was getting done. So, I had to actually put a list together and mark things off so I could see the progress I'm making. So far, I've knocked 5 things off my list of 30. But it does seem like each day that I knock things off, something else is added. So that's probably why it seemed like I was always working, but never accomplishing anything. The question is, will there ever be a day when I have absolutely nothing on my to-do list? A day where I can just devote the whole day to reading and writing? I keep believing so and I keep plugging away at my list. But it seems like I'm digging in a bottom-less pit.

I was up too this morning, early bird. I need to make a list. Your view sounds wonderful. Enjoy the day!

I got up to watch the Charles and Camilla wedding. I need wedding ideas. But I noticed your blog tonight, while reading through RAWSISTAZ and I am enjoying myself.

Congratulations on your writing and beautiful spring mornings. Did you see the eclispe at twilight yesterday?

Cherlyn,
I stopped by after your comment on my blog, and I'm very interested in reading your book. It sounds like something I'd enjoy.

I've also watched Starting Over a few times, and it's quite interesting at times. I haven't watched it in a while, so I'm out of the loop as far as the new people go.

Thanks for the congrats Dee! And I'm glad you're enjoying my blog. Sometimes I wonder if anyone gets a kick out of it besides me because I feel like I'm rambling. Before I blog, I have no idea what I'm going to blog about. Just let it flow from mood or thought. One day, you're likely to come here and find something juicy! LOL

And no, I didn't get a chance to see the solar eclipse the other day, um, except on TV. LOL Probably for best because my retarded behind would probably look straight at it. :-)

Hey Andi! Thanks for stopping by. You have a very interesting blog and I enjoy reading it from time to time. If you get my book, I hope you can purchase the re-release in September. It's cleaned up a bit more than the self-published version. And I hope you'll drop me a line after you read it.

Starting Over comes on here in St. Louis like at 3 or 4 AM sometimes. I sleep with the TV on, so a lot of times I hear it while sleeping, and sometimes get up to watch it. Sometimes, it actually does make me reflect on the things I do in my own life. Don't know if I could ever be a part of a show like that because I can be one of those loner types. I'd get there and stay all to myself until meeting time. Ahhhh! But there, they'll probably have me work on it and I'd be a social butterfly by the time I left! LOL

I know the feeling. Hang in there. It'll get done :)

I can relate...when do you say "no" I can't do that project? When you figure it out, let me know...lol
