I know I haven't been on much lately.  Busy with life, I guess.  I read on someone's blog one time that they thought their life was full of stress and trouble, and then they realized it was just full of life.  If I could remember whose blog it was I would give them credit for that thought.   I have been struggling with life being rather challenging for one reason or another, and when I got in the car the other day the song below was playing and it really has a good reminder/message for all of us - because I know that EVERYONE has stress/challenges/struggles that they face as they move through life.  Keep moving.  One foot in front of the other.  Fake it 'til you make it.  Do whatever it takes.  You can do it.

Today I am working on cleaning another room - the dreaded sewing room.  It has become another dumping ground I'm afraid, which is only natural because it is also the room where I keep all my decorations and things like that.  I was going to take a before picture, but when I came downstairs for the camera I realized my husband must have taken it with him.  Good thing, I should probably have more self-respect than to publish photos of the mess for all the world to see.  But I think maybe I'm not the only one who deals with keeping up with the "stuff".  
Anyway, I am just taking a short break from the cleaning to do a quick report.  So far, I have found over 20 projects that are in various stages of completion.  While I often struggle with the whole new year's resolution thing (I mean, where do I start on the road to improvement - there are so many areas that could use help... :O)
 this year I believe I will make it my resolution to get the projects I have started finished.  The good news is that I still like most of them a whole lot so the working on them shouldn't actually cause physical pain. :)
I will be back with pictures of all these projects after the cleaning is done and the camera makes it's way back home.  

P.S. Libby, I found my "sister ring" right when I started cleaning.  I put it on for good luck and it really is helping, I think!  :)
