Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Happy New Year!

Let's review my resolutions for last year.

Practice the piano more. Verdict? I did well for the first few months of the year. Then it got HOT and my piano is in a shed... 

Write more.Verdict: whatever.

Take better photos. Verdict: Found our "better" is very subjective. I think I've improved, and there are a few shots I've taken that I think, "Wow! I took that! Amazing." Then there are all the rest... not so great. But overall, I'm happy with the improvement I've seen in myself. My 365 project died on day 11 though.

Run a 10k by my birthday and maybe a marathon in October. Verdict: HA! Ha ha ha ha ha. That should have read something like: "Eat more chocolate and try to survive." Then I would have been successful!

This year I've lowered my expectations. 
Here are some things I'd like to work on this year.
*stay sane while finishing the house.
*get some form of exercise at least three times a week. This would be more than I did last year. (The Wii counts, right?) Pick a 5k to walk/run like I did two years ago- that seemed to work well for me.
*get my mail/paperwork organized and keep it under control.(A challenge!)
*perfect the homemade tortilla. (This should really read: learn how to make and then perfect. I've only done it once, and they were okay! I need a house where I can roll stuff out though.)
*Did I say stay sane yet? This is a big one. We are fast approaching 5 1/2 years living in the trailer. 
*eat something grown from nature everyday. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes I can go several days without eating a fruit or vegetable. Amazingly sad.

With that, I better go eat an apple.
