Motivation.  I have been pondering my word for this year.  2011.  What should it be?  I keep going back and forth in my head between a few.  This one is probably my keeper.  Yes, I am a wee bit late getting started for 2011.  See, one more reason I need this as my word for 2011.  Ha!

Been pondering the Project 365 again lately.  Have tried to update the blog a few times but still haven't uploaded photos from my camera so nothing published yet.  Although after doing a few entries last night I started reconsidering my method again.  Seeing as I tended to really only update it once a week (or even every other week for that matter) I am thinking a weekly post of 2 scrap pages may be my method this year.  I came across a great template that sparked some ideas last night.  Hmm...still pondering.  Need some MOTIVATION.  ;) 

As I looked at my blog last night I noticed how pitiful my posts were last year.  I mean the number of them, the content probably was as well but hey, I won't go there.  Blogging for such a long time helped me do stuff.  It motivated me (see, that word again).  So I am going to attempt to really jump back into it.  Use it as motivation.  I don't understand why but I am one of those people that has to have something to hold me accountable.  A goal.  A deadline.  No deadline...usually no results.  So, this year I need to create my own deadlines.  My own consequences for if those deadlines are not met.  Hard part is it usually only involves me so in the end does it really matter?  Ugh!  Vicious cycle.  Yuck!

So I am one of those people that feels if it is going to be really cold outside there should at least be snow.  But no, not where I am.  We got ice.  Yucky ice.  Although I will say Noah and I had fun this morning pulling big sheets of it off my car and smashing it on the ground.  That child is fascinated with ice.  And Cameron is with snow.  It's pretty funny to watch them.  It did snow a few weeks ago and Cameron kept eating it.  I think I managed to capture a photo believe it or not.

We were supposed to get snow and did, but it melted right away. I was relieved because we don't have the mentality or equipment to handle it. Now it's 55 degrees--what a difference! I need to set some goals this year too, for the first time in my life. Taking one day and step at a time perhaps?

I'm in the same boat...I need deadlines to get things done! I just have my whole life. I'm looking forward to your posts! One of my goals for the year is to start a blog of my own. I'll let you know when it happens. :)
