Curl Up with A Blanket

Curl Up with A Blanket

The title says just that. I want to curl up with a blanket in this cold weather with a hot cup of coffee and read.  I have to say, that is one of the things I miss most about having some extra free time.  My free time is only at nights when my son is asleep and by that time, I just want to sleep.

I miss reading a good book though.  I still get to read once in a while but I can’t fully engage myself in a book because I just always end up dozing off.  I am in the middle of 3 or 4 current books at the moment and each are equally good that it’s hard to concentrate on just one.  I am trying to find my specific tastes in books and I have to say it’s not that easy.  My mind wants to be open to numerous genres and that’s probably a good thing.

I also started listening to audiobooks since I have longer commutes to and from work and honestly, that’s helped a lot.  It’s not just the story that makes a good book but when it comes to audiobooks in particular, the narrator makes A BIG DIFFERENCE.  Read more

Organization of Life

Organization of Life

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to be organized.  Not just organized in a cleaning sense but I guess organized as in “let’s get my shit together” as well.  It did start with organizing a little at home.  I took a good opportunity to do some cleaning and organizing while my son was napping and I was enjoying myself.  It always feels good when things are nice and clean.  It feels even better when stuff is actually organized and not just piled in some hot mess, hidden behind closed doors – *remembers Friend’s episode where Monica has her closet of shame*.

I only did SOME though.  I got to organize the kitchen a bit and some of the cupboards.  It was enough to satisfy this need to clean that I have been having lately.  I still have a lot to do upstairs because I also do have my own “closet of shame”.  That’s something for tomorrow then.

I think I’m straying off the real point here.  I think my point is that my need to clean and organize also branches into my need to clean and organize my life as well.  Life is hectic, as we all know and we just go about our days trying to deal with it but not really doing too much about it.  For the most part I do feel like there isn’t much we can do about it because life IS grand and we never know which way things will turn.  We end up worrying about how our lives are going to be fucked and there’s only so much we can do.

Unscripted Design

I have moved on and started anew. I used to be on a subdomain but I decided to keep it simple and move on back to regular wordpress and start fresh. A lot of things lately in my life have been starting fresh so why not have a new home for my blog too? I even changed the name, which is VERY new for me. I’ve pretty much kept the same name for years and years but I think it’s time to finally let go.

I don’t know what sparked my new liking for blogs again. Maybe it’s because I’ve started a cooking one and felt like I needed one for my personal.

So I’m going to keep this initial post simple and continue to be excited to move on forward with Unscripted Design.
