Happy 2018

I have 894 (this is 895) posts on this site.  The majority of them are marked private.  Eh, well, at least I can read my past.  Slowly I will get some public again.  Not now though.

I’m attempting to start the Bullet Journaling.  You can see the website with instructions, and reasoning behind it here: Bullet Journal.

I have always kept a “journal” of sorts.  Some in pretty little journals with only personal information, and others (majority) are large Mead Five Star Spiral Bound Notebooks.  I keep that right one my desk for when I work.  They include personal info but mostly work related.  I have those dating back to 1990 or so.  Because I’ve done it so long, journaling and task notations are not a new item for me.  However, making it all pretty and fun – well, that’s new for sure.

I’m not a creative person artistically.  Definitely writing wise as I’ve done many short stories, and of course a blog with >890 posts over many years.  But making cute little designs in journals?  Yeah, no – not me.  But I thought I could give it a shot.  Why not?

This year marks a few events:

  1. My hubby and I have been together for 5 years as of March 13, 2017 (should have been 36 years, but that’s for another story)
  2. Our wedding anniversary will mark 2 years married (yay!)
  3. We’ve lived in our little home in the woods for 5 years this year
  4. My pup will be 10 this February 8th (oh my goodness!)
  5. My kids keep getting older! (not sure how that happens when I’m not aging… haha)
  6. Many Many events relating to family (birthdays, anniversaries)

This year will be a good one.  Each year has it’s ups and downs, but in the end – every year is well lived and loved.

I wish you and yours a joyous 2018!
