Less is more

I feel like I've been having some time management issues lately, and obviously blogging is one of the things that's been falling by the wayside. So I've decided I need to get on a schedule. Break my day into smaller increments and do a different "task" each hour. And my posts, well I've decided the don't need to be as long as they usually are. I can keep them shorter, each with one topic, and post more often. I find I get overwhelmed by how many things I want to post about and feel like each post needs to cover EVERYTHING that's going on, and then it seems like such a daunting task to sit down and write it all. I know, I know, I tend to create my own stressful situations.

Today's post could have covered a finished pair of socks, my marathon dentist appointments, my new Indie Swag, an update on the house, and a meme I've been meaning to do for a month. Instead, it will only be about the Walk-A-Thon yesterday. It was just wonderful!!! Pea and I were joined by Elizabeth, which was a lot of fun. Actually, I thought Pea might get a little bored by all our talk of knitting, yarn , blogging, pod-casts and Rhinebeck - but I think he found it nice to tune us out and be able to think about anything he wanted to. If Elizabeth hadn't been there, he'd have to pay attention to my rattling on about knitting, yarn , blogging, pod-casts and Rhinebeck!!

The walk route was beautiful, with much of the route within sight of Long Island Sound. (Yes, I did bring my camera, and yes, I forgot to take pictures again!!) We lucked out with the weather too. It was bright and sunny, and cool enough to be comfortable through the whole six miles. The miles few by, and I was less sore this morning than I thought I might be. Must have been the soft, cushy cashmerino socks!!

I want to thank everyone again for their generous donations!!! I am so thrilled to have raised more than I could ever have dreamed. And I'll do the prize drawing later on this week and announce the lucky winners. I also have a couple more prizes I need to get posted up on the prize blog, including a Gettin' Knit Together kit and a something Spicy!!

The walk was a lot of fun, and I was only a tiny bit sore this morning. The "new and improved" chocolate, wasn't. I took one little bite and that was the end of that.

Can't wait until Saturday - you're on my card for Bingo!

Oh, man, Karen, I know exactly how you feel! About the scheduling, about the blogging...I also always feel like I have to write these long intricate posts, and consequently never get around to them. That's why when I posted yesterday, I scrapped this great story about these awesome vintage shoes I found, just so I could get to the point.

I'm glad you had a good day for the walk! Sounds like gorgeous fall weather...am jealous. But I'm going to Detroit later this week...guess I'll get a taste of winter there!

OMG LOVE the cashmerino socks....I was just on line looking for some cashmerino and now I'm gaga over your socks. Congrats on the walk, way to go!

Kirsten said...

Sounds like you had a great day. What better way to cover 6 miles than to talk about knitting, yarn, blogging, podcasts, and Rhinebeck!

Congratulations on all of the money you raised!
