    I like to think that there are several little

    guys running around in my head doing paperwork, storing and retrieving memories, making lists, doing things. Kinda like the one in The Dreamcatcher movie, but covering all aspects of personality and all manner of bodily functions.

    This year I bought a new planner.

    .. The happy planner.. It's been so great.. It's helped me so much. I use the meal planner to plan out my meals every week so that I am not tempted to eat out. I have really gotten into decorating and making it reflect me and my style. I bought special stickers to mark events and...

    I was arranging my 100 pack of colored pencils

    according to the box. 13 more colors left and I come to hazel, but there is no hazel in the box. BUT The pencil I thought was hazel turned out to say 'harvest gold' but there was no harvest gold on the box! So I assume that is the pencil in its place and that's where it lays now...

    My bedroom gets cluttered really easily

    and if I'm bored, I will take my time, section by section, and organize my room. It takes forever because if one area is clean then the rest of my room needs to be also. So sometimes it takes up to 8 hours of organizing..
