Today's Post-It Note

Any better way to start off November than with an annoying to do list to get myself motivated and bring myself back from the death that this cold has had me in? I think not.
Daily Naggings:
*Dishes - Y'all would be proud of me for keeping up with these. I've tried so hard to keep them clean. I really have.
*Laundry - It's all clean, as usual, I just need to kick the dog off of the pile and put them away. I don't know what it's like to pull clothes out of my closet of my closet anymore instead of pulling them out of a basket or off of the floor.
*Pay Bills - little by little, sigh... I'm surprised our power hasn't been shut off yet. This is the one bill I procrastinate the most and I have no idea why.
Blog Stuff:
*Post DIY's that I have been working on
*Post Halloween stuff - sadly I do not have many pictures of this day. I guess that means we were having too much fun.
*Redo side bars - they're bugging me again
*When I posted last night's Weekly Confessional I realized I hadn't posted anything substantial for almost a week which made me think of the nice reader who left me a comment asking me if I would really still blog if no one read my blog and YES I WOULD!!! Is it nice that people do? Yes. Would I love it if my blog became popular one day? Yes. *I keep to a schedule for the most part because it is something I enjoy doing and YES because it helps keep readers coming back. Just because I am thrilled when people comment and read my blog doesn't mean that it is the only reason why I do it. It's a creative outlet for me and a free advertising tool for my shop. So far I've never made a single dime off of my blog. I think I got up to like $10 in Google ads once but then they changed their rules to sending you a check at $100 or something like that and I bounced. It took me two years to get to $10. I didn't cry it about, I just got rid of it.

Shop Stuff:
*Add more vintage items
*Print more inventory tags and business cards
Christmas (the cursed word I barely dare to utter):
*Don't be such a bitch during this time.
*Get over how much you hate Santa - it's realistic to mention that this probably won't happen
*Make gifts for family - Yep I'm making gifts this year and everyone can suck it if they don't like it. Now that's the spirit :(
*Remember that I do not have to buy Tyrone a gift and rejoice in that fact. He doesn't have to buy me one either. We made a deal that this year we're not doing that because we bought a fairly nice television last month. We don't need anything else. We didn't need the TV either but you know how that goes.
*Decorate the mantle - since we're still in our tiny apartment we're not putting up a tree AGAIN which is sad but what do ya do? The mini tree I bought last year will have to suffice.
*Make a new wreathe - I'm not sure if I'll get around to this so it's staying at the bottom of the holiday list.
*Enjoy Thanksgiving! Eat a lot! - this is my favorite task on here!!!
*Watch the 2 Broke Girls episode you missed on Halloween. You guys I like totally heart this show, like for realz. OMG! Shut me up!! Max is my soul mate. My husband even dies when we watch because he's all "you totally do that just like her" or "you say the same thing". And if my ovaries can overcome the barren wasteland that they are currently in and I'm blessed with a little girl someday then I want to call her Max. I don't care if it's used a lot either, I love it.
*Paint nails

I love the name Max for a little girl! Adorable. Plus, she probably wouldn't get fucked with. It's got a I'll-beat-your-ass notion associated with it, I think.

I've always wanted to name a little boy Maximilian and call him Max too but Ty is not on board with that.

Wait a minute! This whole time I've been hunting for a blog designer, and come to find out, you know blog design!?

brandy-son Zen master flash said...

I actually don't know anything about it. I don't know jack about html or anything like that. I just design them in Word or picnik and then upload them as a regular pic. I'm so lame, I know.

OMG! Seriously ...I have been so stressed out about this too. I didn't want to get her cute butt sick. I think I might be in the clear since I've been on antibiotics now for awhile. I just have a little cough now.

Jennikunz said...

Don't stress! She is cool as a cucumber. Come when you can! She says she loves you.
