B is for Beginning

In my experience last year with the Blogging A to Z Challenge, the first day was easy, then…Yikes!  I have to do this every day with a new letter?!?  I survived last year and I’m certain I will survive again!

In the Beginning…isn’t that how a lot of stories start?  In my life I’ve had a lot of beginnings.  My problem is, I don’t always follow through to completion.

Oh, Lord…here I go again trying to start at the beginning.  I was very sick for most of March and I Swear, I won’t talk about being sick Any More!  I do feel like this is a new beginning for me.  Feeling better, has me filled with ideas and plans for accomplishing things.  Those of you who have read BCDC for  a  while, know that Ralph and I are trying to get ourselves moved from New Jersey to New Mexico.  It’s not going as quickly or as smoothly as I would like.

I feel as if I am responsible for this, although it really is a shared responsibility.  But I am really in the frame of mind where I feel if I do some work on a project each day, I can accomplish it.

I will begin again.  My plan is simple, I’m shooting for an hour each day.  In that hour, I hope to go through at least one storage bin or box or drawer.  In going through I will sort into keep/yard sale/toss piles. We’ll see how this goes.   I think one of the best ways for me to be successful is to make myself accountable…So along with the A to Z Challenge, you’ll be getting updates on my progress.

I just need to decide where I will begin.  Oh…you want me to tell you now, don’t you.  Oh…Ok!  I have Many bins in my basement with clothes in them.  I don’t wear all of them…I won’t even remember some of them, I’m sure.  My project for today…1 bin…2 if I’m lucky.

So if I plan to begin this monumental project, better get my carcass up and away from this silly computer.

Be sure to stop back each day to see how I’m doing with my projects and how I’m doing with Blogging A to Z.  Hope I can survive them both!!

Happy Tuesday…”C” you tomorrow!  (Lame I know, but I couldn’t resist!)

  1. ok, we have similar senses of humour, fran, as i like your “c you later” joke!
    and tackling a bin or two is perfect for today – b is for bin and beginnings?! good luck! just keep thinking of nm!!

    • Should have thought of the Bin, Cathy! You do know me too well. Yesterday went well. More to come today. I think when I meditate, instead of saying “om” I should say “nm” except I don’t now how to pronounce it!! Have a great day!

  2. Beginnings are fun for me, it’s the follow-through that always trips me up. Good luck!

  3. Good luck! I think I’ll join you in this project—but probably not until after April is over. 🙂

  6. A little at a time is what’s needed it seems to me. When the job seems huge, we start wondering how we’ll ever get it all done.
