The Twilight of NaBlaBlah Month

well, we made it 30 straight days of posting, which I know is not really too much different than normal, but...with this being the Holiday season I have been stretching myself a bit sometimes.

But, all it well, I think most of the problems I felt with NaBloPoMo, was that the need to blog was dominant and the want to blog came secondary, don't get me wrong, I love blogging but there have been a few days when I knew that I should probably just work, instead of talking about Dancing With the Stars on my blog, right???

Oh screw that I talk about Dancing with the Stars a lot inmy personal life too, so why shoulh here be any different.

SO yesterday was a total cluster f#%k, I spent most of the day waiting for UPS who showed up 3 hours late, by the time most of the nonsense of the day was done my studio was getting dark and I really hate to paint in non natural light, so the day was all but spent, now I really do have a ton to do today, though luckily 95% off my work is packaged and half of it is at the post office now and the other half will be there later today, leaving my weekend free to guard the mean cheese and keep her from being contrary and pulling down our Christmas tree, I have an ominous feeling about the tree, like part of me knows that it will be pulled down this weekend, and I am dreading it.

oh well....what are all of you doing this weekend? We might be having a snowstorm on Monday, yikes....too early, it should snow on Christmas eve, and then it should remain snowy on the ground until January 1....then it can go away, It is at that point I throw my fear of global warming to the wind and just pray for 40 degree days.

This beautiful big old house of ours is wonderful, but cold....so cold, the hardwood floors feel so cold in the morning they feel like I am standing in a puddle of water.

Oh, and onto another topic....is it too early to start thinking about resolutions for the new year??? I feel like I have to plan my resolutions carefully lest I set myself up for failure....so far I am thinking that they will be

1- lose weight
2- take a dance class
3- draw more!!!!!!
4- contact galleries and shops in the city
5 stop being so hard on myself


alright, it's 8:00am, and time I get to working!!!

love you all

Taking a dancing class sounds great.

PS - Blogger changed their programming and now I can't leave a link to my non-blogger website in comments. That makes me sad.

Happy end of November!

"I have an ominous feeling about the tree, like part of me knows that it will be pulled down this weekend, and I am dreading it."

hehe, I go through that every year with my four cats. Someone told me to try putting the tree in a corner, put a hook on the ceiling and about a foot and a half away from the corner on each wall and use heavy fishing line to anchor the tree. I'm not sure about putting more holes in the walls, but it may just be what I need to do.

I love your resolutions, but I think you should add "get my *ss to nyc to visit the fabulosity that is Jody"

Have a most wonderful weekend, and guard that tree with all your Christmas Spirit.

Don't wait to start those NYRs; I've started on mine already, and it's working wonders. ;)

Have a good weekend, J; hope your tree remains vertical!

Not too early at all to think about NYR. I'm kinda-sorta thinking about mine but nothing too serious. :) I know one that will be in there... LOSE SOME WEIGHT!

I've been getting some things crafted for swaps and such and getting some packages together to get myself to the post office today. There is such satisfaction for me in sending things off. Is that just me? Maybe so.

Is NaBloPoMo really over? Wahoo!

xo,

KB :)

Congrats on your persistence, Jenn! You'll always be NaBloPoMoer to me. They can never take that away.

Freaking Ohio shuts down in the snow. That's never fun.

At first blush, I was going to cry premature holiday foul on the New Year resolutions. However, I do believe we are always at choice. There's never a wrong time to choose something good for yourself. Make it so.

CCT is right. There's a new sheriff in town. Google has taken over Blogger. I'm usually a Google fan, but this makes me happy I jumped ship to Wordpress.

Snow on Monday? How did I not hear of this? I am so hoping your wrong. Apparently I can't be bothered to turn on the local news. I'll just get the weather report straight from the Stiletto Heights website.

Congrats for surviving NaBloPoMo! I, for one, am looking forward to taking my weekends off once again...no one needs 7 straight days of me...I don't even need that (although, it's impossible to get away sometimes. ha.) Good luck with the tree...I hope that holiday miracles start early and it manages to stay up!

Congratulations, but I must say I will miss your weekend blogs. It'll be like I'm standing at the end of my driveway with three dollars and the ice cream truck never comes.

Have I ever told you that story?

Anyway, good job. I know I didn't have it in me.

Your resolutions are the same as mine.

I would also like to worry less and be less angry.

I want to be in a very different place at this time next year. I hope both of us are.

I still need to contact your contact. I am still in contact with my contact but you know how flaky designers can be. It is happening just very slowly. I just know that I am going to have to make a bunch of pieces at the last possible minute.

I know tomorrow is SNS but I really think you should take the weekend off from blogging.

I am wtih you on the resolutions. I need to be better to myself for sure! I think no matter what art galleries and shops you contact, they are all going to love you!!

Hi, Jennifer,

I came across your blog on nyc2dailyphoto

I love Stiletto Heights as a name for a blog.

And your list of resolutions: I definitely relate to them

I came across a women in management leaflet the other day which started off with a simple question: 'What would you want for yourself in 2008 (and beyond)?'

And Noelle,

I agree on the programming change.

Once a tool thinks it can start to manage it becomes a bad tool.

Your resolutions sound excellent. I make them and then I never stick to them.

Not being so hard on yourself is a good one! I do that too. It's a hard habit to break though! Good luck xx

Jennifer, from the photos I've seen, you look great. No need to lose weight.

I, on the other hand, need to lose at least 50 lbs.
