Buffeted By The Wind





Some days are calm, cool breezes and sometimes you get buffeted by the wind.  I must have inadvertently stepped into a cyclone because this week is turning out worse than the last one!  But I'm a fighter and I always like to look on the bright side of things so here is my list of things I'm grateful for today:


1.  No more silly paperwork.  In my personal life I found myself doing silly paperwork once every two months or so just to keep other people happy.  There was really no reason for all that paper shuffling other than to make someone else feel all warm and fuzzy inside that another tree was cut down in the making of those piles of unnecessary paper.  I found out yesterday I will no longer have to do that.  While the reasons itself was shocking and extremely upsetting to me, I will be forever grateful that I can now start preserving a forest instead of continually cutting down one! ;~)

2.  PiBoIdMo registration has begun!  I've waited all year for this and I am now number 75 in a loooonnngggg list of participants.  What is PiBoIdMo you ask?  ARE YOU KIDDING ME????  Go check it out yourself at Tara Lazar's post ( http://taralazar.com/2012/10/23/piboidmo-2012-registration-begins-now-sign-up-here ) and find out why November is the ROCKINGEST month of the year!  The fact I won a hand decorated book from Kathy Ellen Davis's 31 picture books in 31 days 
http://kraftyellenwrites.com/category/31-in-31 ) is just going to make it that much more fun!

3.  Today I am doing an interview with Nutschell from the writing nut blog 
( http://www.thewritingnut.com/ramblings/wednesday-writers-workspace-welcomes-donna-martin ) and if you get a chance why not hope over there and take a peek at my writing study?

I've come to the conclusion that my life will never be an easy one.  There will always be days when I'm buffeted by the wind but that only makes me appreciate the calm days even more!
