Blog Improvements and Miscellany

I just spent about half an hour to 45 minutes going through my blog, and adding "Previous" and "Next" links to the top of every entry. As cool as I think Drupal is, I think the apparent lack of a more automated way to do this is a bit of a hole in the blog module. If there is a way, and I just don't know it, somebody please let me know.

I Would Like to Take This Valentine's Day to Remind People...

... that being single is not necessarily the same as being alone.

Hiccup in the Schedule

The schedule worked quite well for about 3 weeks, then hit bumpy ground, it seems. My friend had to change both the day and the time that she comes over to help with KatyBeth, and while I'm still grateful for the help, it doesn't work out quite as well for me, as before. Plus, and this is really the primary thing - KatyBeth has started getting up earlier, on a regular basis, meaning I have only naptime in which to try to get things done, and I don't get that, if I'm wiped out enough that I also need to sleep.

The Dark Side of 25 Things

In general, it has been fun to see most people's "25 Things". Even on the occasion that I see something in one of them that I particularly dislike, it has tended to be in the list of someone that I haven't actually seen in a long time, and I've been easily able to just shrug it off... until today. I read the list of a current friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, and spent several minutes afterward feeling disappointed and slightly depressed, on account of it.

25 Things

Ok, ok, I'm going to buckle, here, since I've been tagged on these, on Facebook, so many times, here they are, in no particular order.

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

Huzzah for the Schedule

I've been on my new schedule for about two weeks now, and by all appearances, it is working! Occasionally, there is a task that doesn't get done, but I usually manage to catch up on the weekends, and even if I don't, I manage to get it the next week. Even not getting up before KatyBeth (gotta get some newer pictures posted...) in the mornings for the last few days hasn't hurt things too much.

KatyBeth did not take a nap, today. That is, she was up from about 9:30 this morning, until about 9:00 this evening, with barely 10 minutes of sleep in between, and I dearly hope the sleeping she's doing now is for the night, rather than just a nap, because I'm pretty wiped out.

Wiser Than I Knew

My schedule that I made has 10 things on it that I'm aiming to do each week, including writing and drawing, two things that I used to do (with wildly different levels of proficiency, in my opinion) that I haven't been able to make time for for quite a while. I did not include things like washing diapers because that gets done as needed and, thank God, KatyBeth can't get in the way of that too awfully much.

Stalled Coming Out of The Gate

Doesn't it just figure? Last night, I finished my "resolution" entry, then started turning out the lights and such, in preparation for going to bed, filled with resolution for the next day. I was just thinking about how I would go check on KatyBeth, who was sleeping on the futon in her room, and transfer her to her crib, when I heard a squeak, and saw a small figure toddling into the hall. I went and picked her up, and thought for a moment that she was actually going to just go back to sleep on my shoulder. Suffice it to say, she didn't.

Alright! That's It! Time for a 2009 Resolution

I don't usually get into the whole New Year's Resolution thingy, but I think that I'm about due for a change in my life, and it approximately coincides. I need a schedule. Not an hour-by-hour schedule (I'm not fool enough to think I could manage that, with a not-especially predictable toddler), but a day by day schedule. Such as: Dishes on Monday, Vacuuming on Tuesday, Clean bathroom on Wednesday, Accounts on Thursday, Writing on Friday (maybe?). I'm going to set my watch alarm to get up a couple hours earlier than I have been, of late, on a daily basis.
