Scatter brained

I feel so scatterbrained lately!! I can't seem to concentrate on anything for very long, I forget what I'm about to do when I walk into a room, I loose track of a conversation in the middle of it (sometimes I forget what I'm saying in the middle of a sentence). I don't get anything done because of this (or at least it feels like I don't get anything done!!).

The Simple Woman's Daybook



FOR TODAY 1/19/09...
Outside my window...its getting dark
I am thinking...that I didn't get anything done today
I am thankful for...something that I can't yet share
From the kitchen...dinner smells really good
I am wearing...sweats
I am creating...nothing at the moment but I did create a squidoo lens earlier.
I am going...to relax the rest of the evening
I am reading...nothing at the moment
I am hoping...that I feel less tired soon
I am hearing...my child running through the house
Around the house...there are still things everywhere from being unpacked
One of my favorite things...my daughter's laugh
A few plans for the rest of the week: work on getting things put away and create a few more squidoo lenses

Stuff

I don't seem to have much to say lately, I'm trying to get more inspired-or at least make a point to write about something! Its a challenge. I got a new book yesterday to try to help me generate ideas, and just write in general.




My living room is almost box-free thanks mostly to my husband!! Still lots of stuff we need to find places for though!!

Here's a question...does anyone have any suggestions on getting my 3-year-old nighttime potty-trained? She is perfect about it during the day-can even make long trips and hasn't had an accident at naptime in ages. But we put her in a pullup at night and she wakes up soaked. Do I need to just stop using pullups and see what happens? Any suggestions would be much appreciated!! I know some kids don't get the nightime part down for a while but I'm wondering if there is anything I should be doing.

I'm going to start doing the "Simple Woman's Daybook," the way I understand the instructions is we post it on mondays so look for that tomorrow. Click the link above if you want to participate!

I'm really working at the squidoo thing-I have 4 lenses live right now and two in the works (and a very long, and ever-growing list of ideas). Make sure you check them out and make your own (there is a link on my page to make your own lens now!). I will be adding to them regularly! I'm also thinking about making either a Zazzle or CafePress store. That will be quite a project because while I have ideas I will have to learn to use a graphics software (I already have Illustrator but am finding it difficult). Any suggestions??

Ok I'm going to stop babbling now.....

Boxes and boxes and more boxes....

My house is so full!! The movers brought our stuff yesterday, which is awesome because I was really wanting my real bed back!! But it is such a tight squeeze in this house!! After moving all the furniture around several times we found a layout that works. Now we just have to actually unpack and get rid of the boxes!!!

I am also going to have to do a major sort and purge. We just have too much stuff, several moves and several houses worth of accumulation that we need to sort through. So I have lots to keep me busy the next few weeks!!!

On another topic....

Have I mentioned Squidoo.com lately? This thing is so cool!! You can build mini webpages on whatever topic you want (think of it as a souped up blog) and then you get a portion of the ad revenue from your lense (page)es, or you can donate your portion to a charity of your choice.

I only have one lense so far but I made a list last night of ideas for more so I should have more soon!! I am learning as I go so it isn't a quick process but it is very easy (and I imagine quick once you get the hang of it!). Check out my "about me" lense here. Then start making your own!! If you do make a lense please let me know by commenting here so I can add you to my favorites!

Busy day!!

Well I did a lot of things today. Thought you might be interested in a few of them. One is that I combined several of my blogs into this one so browse through the archives as there are some posts that weren't there before, I also added a list of topics to make browsing easier.


And just for fun I wanted to let you know about a book I just read:



This was a very interesting read about an inspiring family, even if you only plan to have one or two children (or any number in between) this book has a lot of great tips and ideas. They discuss things such as homeschooling, discipline, schedules, faith, budgeting and living without debt, business, frugal living and even building their own house. Also includes answers to common e-mail questions and favorite recipes. If you want to read something inspiring this is a great choice!!
