1. Explanatory

My life MO is, when I get overwhelmed or put off by a project, to interrupt it with something else. Things will get sticky, I'll get discouraged and WHAM! I'll have the most brilliant idea ever about something in the opposite direction and it will need action immediately. As long as I don't abandon Project A entirely it's a pretty good mechanism for unsticking the syrupy feeling. However, the temptation to abandon is always quite strong.

I have not been whole hog into 10 Things Tuesday for a few weeks, perhaps you've noticed. Today I was despairing, wanting to participate, not wanting to do random, not having any good theme ideas, blah blah blah. Then came the brilliant, ridiculous idea. I will do 10 posts today. Longer than my Fwitter things, shorter than an in depth post and 10 all together (no more, no less!) by the time my head hits the pillow.

The best thing about it? It's going to distract me from all the life projects I really should be spending my time on today!

  1. I came home from caring for Mom, got on my reader, and saw EIGHT posts at 117Hudson! "EIGHT?!" I said? "You've made EIGHT posts today? What's goin' on?!" Now I get it, and I'll check back for the last two.

    Ambitious, Girl, I'll give you that.
