Well, my first new year goal has fallen to the wayside. I had intended to post every day in my blog & spend more time answering comments & feedback. I've missed the past 2 days - perhaps 365 days was too high of a goal! No matter, we carry on, don't we?
My elderly dog, my best friend, has started to do not-so-well. In my heart, I think it's the beginning of the end, which is something that stabs me right in the heart. All I can do now is hug him & let him know he is loved. And to all the people who keep asking me if I'll get another dog - please, I can't think of that right now. My gut reaction is NO but time changes things. We shall see. No matter, we carry on, don't we?
I have tried to find a routine for posting my work, both here & on auction & on Facebook. Thought I had a routine in place. (With a separate day job I find my "extra" time limited, so a routine is crucial for me to keep to a daily presence with my art). However I have to revamp my routine - just found that 1 place where I post has a special requirement. This will take a bit more work on my part to find a new groove with this, so for now, I'm skipping it. One more thing on the to-do list - I'll have to revisit this another time. Shame, because it appeared to be a good avenue for art exposure. No matter, we carry on, don't we?
Some of you may know that I handle the Traveling Chicken blog/challenge. Lately it has been having issues with artists unable to participate. And with each artist that skips, the time between posts gets longer & longer. In fact, both the blog & it's Facebook page has ceased to have interest & comments (except for the constant flow of spam that I have to review & delete every day). Right now I'm trying to put together a list of artists that responded so I can get this little chick on it's journey again. Then I need to try & contact every artist still on the waiting list to see if they still have interest. Just a bit more time of my now stretched-thin day. But no matter, we carry on, don't we?
And with this whole list, I sit here today waiting to go spend the day doing something I don't want to do. It has me feeling sad - and anxious. As the to-do list grows, I spend a full day of valuable time doing something I'd rather not do. But to keep the peace, I will. Tomorrow is another day....
Ah, tomorrow starts the week of SuperBowl. No, it's not a week of parties for me. I live a stone's throw away from the MetLife stadium. My world, my commute to work & home, everything in my area is going to take extra time, extra patience. Buses will be rerouted, tourists everywhere, and a lot of drunken lost souls. With the weather & extreme cold temps, the commute has already stretched to 2-1/2 hours each way (yes, that is 5 hours every day spent commuting) - I can only imagine what this week will be like.
No matter, we carry on, don't we?
