Day 0: (I'm Back!!)

OK, so I have fallen into a bit of a "funk" lately, this past winter has really kicked our "you know what" HARD.  There are so many things that I have started but just can't seem to continue, maintain or finish, for that matter. One of those being Landon's video of his 1st year.....if you are wondering right now.....YES, Landon just turned 2 this past February.....SAD, huh?!  It seems every time I take 2 steps forward, I fall (at least) 6 steps behind.  This is so UNLIKE me!!  I am a go-getter, a follow-through-er and someone who functions BEST when I am overly consumed by activity.  Crazy, huh?!  These are all great.....WHEN you can keep your balance!  Sadly, I lost my balance AND my drive to push forward.  But, a couple days ago, I managed to sit down and catch up on a few of my blog readings.  And there it was, staring me right in the face, SOMEONE, who like me, was grasping with all their might to hold on, before they completely lost total control of that balance we call LIFE, too.  

So, here is my desperate attempt to regain control of my "go-getter-ness" & my "follow-through-er-ness"!!  And my attempt to jump back on that teeter/totter of WILL get wobbly at times......but my new mission is to keep my feet firmly planted, rock with it, AND TRY not to fall off....(again)!!!

To help me get back in the swing of blogging regularly, I'm going to give a 30 day challenge a try.  I didn't quite make it through the 31 for 21, but I really did try.  So here is the list for the next 30 days, borrowed from Shelley & my blogging buddy, Melissa.  

Thanks Melissa for giving me the little nudge, I.SO.SHAMELESSLY.NEEDED!!!
