I have so many plans of things to do in my head and written down on paper in lists, but I just can’t get anything accomplished. I sit down to compose a letter, an email, or a blog post, but when I start to write, “A” becomes “AN” which becomes “AND” which becomes “ANDES” and then I think,” oooo, ANDIES CANDIES”, and then “ooooo, I like CANDY”, and then I get up and start looking through the pantry for whatever candy there might be in there. And then I think, “OH, I was supposed to be writing about that pantry challenge.” Crap.
I wake up with so many ideas running through my head that I will not ever possibly have time for. Someone told me that all of this distraction is only a part of getting older, but I have been this way for most of my life, which explains why I never did well in school. I used to keep a notebook and pen on my bedside table, so I could write things down when I woke up in the middle of the night. That only encouraged me to plan more stuff. I still wake up in the night with ideas, but I refuse to write them down anymore, because it only makes me crazy that I can’t do all the things I think of.
All of the above is one of the reasons I have been a little quiet here. I have been working on some “ideas”, not necessarily putting them into words yet. One of those ideas is an expansion of my little place here in the internetz. If you think of FabGrandma.com as a physical space, then it started out as a one room cabin. Last winter, I moved into a two room cabin, and now I am adding two more rooms. I have to have a place to put all these ideas I have, and it is taking me a while to get them all sorted out and filed away.
One of the first things you might notice is that I have updated the header up there at the top, making it a little easier to read and a little bit nicer, I think. I have sorted out the menu links a little better, and made a page where I can show you pictures of my grandchildren. The two new room, or pages, are “Shopping With FabGrandma” and “FabGrandma’s Gluten Free News”. Neither one of those pages has much on them yet, but like I said, the ideas are about to make my head pop open. I would appreciate it very much if you would click around on the links, and let me know what you think so far. I am open to suggestions for improvement. And content.
And that brings me to yet another idea I had. Is there anyone out there who would like to be a part of FabGrandma. Someone who has some writing skillz, who would like to write occasionally for either the gluten free page or the shopping page? If so, email me and let me know what your ideas are. Let’s talk.
