    I changed the decor today.

    ...It started with the cacti, I didn't want them to freeze. I painted an old, beat up terra cotta planter and crammed all of them in, the goal being to use just one pot. This will just be their winter home, just a safe haven until spring.Sooo... where can I put the pot so the...

    I had an awful weekend,

    I don't know specifically why.

    Being busy just keeps me going and it motivates me somehow. I feel relaxed when i know what to do and when to do it. But when i don't have anything to do i get confused and end up feeling sad because i was not doing my best. Being productive also makes me really happy.

    Bzzzz

    I have stuff to do, and when I don't have stuff to do, I have stories to write. If not stories, then I have people who need a shoulder and so on!
