My thoughts on a Rainy Monday Morning

1. I will NEVER take this; for granted again.

2. I've had a LOT of time to think these days. Priorities. Friendships. Family. Resolutions.
Goals. Plans. And a LOT of simplifying to be done.

3. Simplifying; Like my Blog. When I changed from Simply This That and the Other, I wanted to simplify. It didn't happen. I got carried away. I think when I feel up to it, I might start making a few little changes here and there in my blog design.

4. Same goes for my home too. I've had PLENTY of time to stare at the walls and I am antsy to Spring Clean and "SIMPLIFY".

5. And..... there's all those un-started projects that I shared with you. And.... the un-finished ones I haven't even shown you yet. I'm anxious to do something with them.

6. Taxes. I have everything I need to do them.

Oh my Jodi, can I ever relate. Ever since I sprained my foot this past summer, walking has been painful. My BP has been elevated, and one thing that is good for high BP is walking! I sure miss walking. Take care, girl.

I feel that way knees have been giving me fits and I've had to back off on walking 3 miles everyday...sure makes me appreciate the days I can go. Simplify..a good motto for life! :D

Are those your sexy legs?
Taxes! I don't have everything I need yet, so I have a great excuse for not doing them.

Thimbleanna said...

Dear, oh dear! I do hope some things are happening this week on the health front. I'm anxious to see what you're doing to simplify!

Nedra said...

Simple is VERY COOL.

We do tend to make our lives waaay too complicated. Sometimes it takes a brick to the head to make us realize it. I hope that you can simplify it all soon, Jodi.

Jodi, you have taken the words right out of my mouth!! I've told my husband and my kids that I want to simplify... you know, live with the notion that less is more.. Well, I sort of got started on it, but have a very looong way to go.. It's alot harder to do than what I had thought, that's for sure! Especially when there are sooo many things in one's home that they really like, and have a hard time parting with! I think what I'm going to do is just pack some of my favorite items away, and then I'll still have them, only not have them all out.. That way when I'd like a change in my decor, I will still have them to use..

As far as walking, I have a friend named Sandy, that I met at my weight watcher's meeting who is going to start walking with me.. We are hoping to get started on our walking schedule next week.. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we do!

Have a great evening and week too!

The weather will clear and you'll be back on your feet in no time. Hope you're doing much better. Simplifying sounds like a plan for me too. Maybe the need to simplify is a sign we're getting older...oops, who said older...I mean smarter.
Talk to you soon,

Jodi, tell those doctors if they don't hurry up and figure out what is up with you that I am going to kidnap you, bring you to NC where you can be seen by the best in the nation at UNC and Duke hospitals. I know people who know people ;)

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I feel the same way Jodi. I'm posting less and find myself thinking less is more - with most of life. I hope you are feeling better. Take care of yourself.

Oh tax time. I just gathered everything I need to do mine.

Sherri said...

I know you want to simplify...but I'd love it if you'd share your "simplifying" ideas...I get great organizational tips from your blog!
