Spring Cleaning. A must?

So I've started my Spring cleaning. Does it get any better then that?

Darn right it does!

I could be and would rather be doing ANYTHING other then Spring cleaning.

I could be reading one of the many books from my TBR pile so that I'm not inadvertently killed in a cave in. ~yea, I have a lot of books~

I could and should be writing!!

I could be designing more web sites.

I could be cruising the Internet...

I could be walking the dogs...

I could be practicing my jockeying for when they call me to sub in the Kentucky Derby. ~Excuse me? What do you mean I'm too tall?~

I could be juggling venomous snakes... ~hum, might want to reconsider that one.~

Yes, I will go to great lengths to not have to Spring clean! Why you ask am I so against it? Mainly because as a striving to stay rehabilitated pack rat, I find no enjoyment in cleaning. I'll admit it, I can think of a million and one reason to keep each and everything. I know every saying, "If I toss it now, you know I'll just need it tomorrow." "What a waste of money to get rid of it." "It might be worth something someday." "Kid-let might like to play with/read/listen to it when she's old enough." blah de blah de blah...see what I mean...a pack rat motto!

Now I realize that you can't always do just the fun things in life, and yes cleaning has to be done, but does anyone have any tricks up their sleeves for making it less painful? If you do, I'd love to hear your ideas!

Have a great day!

Good Morning one and all

So here we are, Wednesday April 2, 2008 and I wanted to say Good Morning!

It's been a while since I blogged, but I've been keeping myself very busy...
I have a new website up and running at http://www.serenashay.com/, I designed it and wrote the code all by myself...Yay Me!! That's part of the reason I've been busy as I took a class, well the first class, in how to create a website. It was a wonderfully informative class. The instructor was very good and he took you step by step through the writing of the site. If you have any interest in such a class here's the site...

Creating web pages

Class two starts soon, so of course I'm taking it! LOL who knows what else I can do to my site!

My other reason for slacking on the old blogs has been of course my writing. I've been editing like crazy to get my most recent story, The Challenge, out there. It's amazing how much time the process truly takes! No kidding, you finish writing the story and know you need to edit, you make a few passes and think dang this looks great only to put the sucker down for a few days, then when you come back it's like WTH was I thinking!!!! Editing is way harder then the writing process!!! LOL

But I'm getting there!

Have a great day everyone.
Large or small, may something positive happen to each and everyone of you!!
