All of you know from time to time I talk about Carol, my webmaster and friend. I could not do without her. For instance, when there are security issues with WordPress or problems I never give them a thought. She automatically upgrades and takes care of what needs to be taken care of or fix what I have broken. That is why I am very pleased with her services she offers. I have learned a lot of things from her. One is her list. She keeps a list of notes a mile long. Does her work and marks them off one by one. We had lunch today. She got out of the car with her list! I thought how smart. If she is sitting there and something comes up that she needs to remember she writes it down. I am going to try to have a list myself. I do find that if I do, I get more done. I feel a sense of accomplishment.
I do not make resolutions. You know why, they are like rules to me and my attitude is always that rules were made to be broken. I break the first resolution within 5 minutes of making it. To me it is stressful. I should be making resolutions daily if anything. Maybe the first thing in the morning I can make the resolution for the day.
I need to make a list, stick to it and get my projects done. I have had a quilt kit that I bought 3 years ago. Did I say three? Yes I did. I bought it the last time the American Quilters Society Quilt Show was at the Gaylord Hotel in Nashville, TN. I got started on it and had some trouble with my applique button stitch on the machine. I put it aside, got my machine fix and not touched it again. I am ready to put it on my list and get it finished. I have maybe 10 at the most UFO’s counting the tops that I need to quilt. Yes I have a Tin Lizzie. Have I used it much? NO! Why? Because I am terrified of it. Well I was terrified. But that is on my list. Get it cleaned out and oiled and get busy. I just hate it when something intimidates me. Now go figure that one? I am not terrified of much but I let a sewing machine scare the heck out of me!
So no there will NOT be any resolutions for 2011 but there will be my “Carol list”. She has been a good influence on me. I am blessed to have her as my wizard and friend.
