I HATE Taxes (and Filing Systems, too!)

Very distressed today because I can't find any proof we filed taxes for 2008 OR 2007, US or Canadian. Sigh. I hope it doesn't come up before we move, 'cause I REALLY don't want to have to be searching all our filing boxes in the storage unit for them! And if they're not there, they are in the study, and Goddess knows we'll NEVER find them in there!

19 Posts to a New Habit

Yay! I have another follower! (Thanks, Terri!) Maybe I'll be motivated enough to post more often! I mean, this is the second post in two days--certainly a good foundation for a 21-day-to-build-a-habit exercise. Especially good since after yesterday I have to start my 21 days for controlling my spending over!

In the meantime, I'd better get my Correspondences of Spellcraft assignment done before I get kicked out of class!

Some People Shouldn't Keep Blogs

Hmmm. Why can I never find anything to write about? Other people post weekly, or even daily. What's wrong with me? While I don't write professionally, I've always been a decent amateur writer, but when I think "blog" I freeze up and can't think of ANYTHING to say.

Why do I want one anyway? I suppose I thought it would be a great way to keep track of all the wonderful (and some not-so-wonderful) things that happen in my day to day life. But I haven't posted here in almost a year, even though many notable things have happened in the past few months--We got the puppy I was talking about last year (a totally beautiful, delightful Shiloh Shepherd that's just over 8 months old now), and a few months later (this past March) our older dog, Merly, passed away. Surely those are things I want to write about here.

But I didn't. Should I delete it, forget about having one at all? Posting once a year just doesn't seem to cut it! Maybe I should pick a theme--like puppies (we just put down a deposit for a second Shiloh), or Wicca (Beltane is coming up in a couple of days), or gardening (not that I do a whole lot of that in my current location), or . . .

Sigh. We'll see. I'm in the midst of trying to change my life right now (get more organized, etc), maybe this will be a part of it.
