A Whole Lotta Nothin' Goin' On

So I am not doing much around here. Between being back at work and chasing Little Sprout, I just seem to be accomplishing anything.

I have been THINKING about accomplishing a lot, though. I have been fantasizing about the life I would like to lead, where I grow and raise food for my family and work is something I do for fun. I have been dreaming about a life full of hard work, but work of the most satisfying kind. I have been wondering if I could handle it, if I could manage to provide for my family in the way that I would like to. The most frustrating part is that I won't know until I try. I have been attempting to make small changes followed by bigger changes, but work keeps getting in the way. That and this pesky need for sleep. Still, I am determined to keep moving forward. I am convinced that if I keep trying, I will eventually make it to where I really want to be.

I keep thinking of all these fabulous, witty things I want to say, but then when I sit here at the computer they refuse to sit still long enough for me to get them down in words. I guess we will all just have to suffer through a few more rambles before I get the bugs worked out.

This might make you laugh. I suffer from typing dyslexia. When I try to type a "d", for example, I often will mis-type a "k". This makes for some truly funny typo's, as you can imagine. Really, try it on your own some day, and you will see what I mean.

I hear ya! The way it looks, I have to be the one in the family to work, which takes so much time away from what I want to do here. So frustrating.

Oh my gosh! I've got the same typing affliction. It's such a relief to acknowledge it :0D

LOL I've been dealing with the same type of dyslexia for the past couple of days.

As for the rest, just one step at a time. Don't worry about doing it all, just do what you can as you can handle it. I've found that if I thinking about all I want to do & try and worry about how I'm going to do it all, it becomes too much & NONE of it gets done. Just biting off a bit at a time, and I'm getting there. (Of course, one small bite at a time also allows me to persuade DH into some things that he's not entirely sure about, like composting and using reusable grocery sacks.)

I suppose we will just have to hope to win the lottery, huh?


I am so glad I am not the only one! Maybe there should be some sort of support group, like AA, for us typing dyslexics.


Again, thanks for letting me know that I am not the only one who can't seem to type straight.

I know I should take things one little bit at a time, but I am a product of a society based on instant gratification. I want to do it all and I want it done NOW! My doctor tells me this is the most crazy thing about me, by the way.
