Progress .. It's early but I'm smiling

Ok ok .. So I have seen so many posts about a word of the year.  
I have no idea if I have a word of the year...
Most of the time I have no idea what time or what day it is - 
my brain can only hold so much information at once and I think that it's on overload.
I swear every time I learn something new, it feels like I have forgotten something else...
One day I fear that I will forget how to swallow (again - yes it has happened before)

I think that I would like to have a word of the year
I would most definitely love it to be honest
There are so many words swimming around in my mind
I will have to try to circle them around to come up with a word or phrase 
that fits my goals for the year
Stay tuned for that 'Revelation'

I would love to lose some weight and get fit and healthy again
I know that this is one of my goals for the year
I think that I have found a way to start me on my path.
The Kinect for the Xbox 360 is AWESOME!
I have exercised at least an hour - seriously at least an hour more like two - every day this week
It may seem lazy to some to call a video game exercise
but until you try it you have no idea how much exercise it really is.
Plus I did get a fitness game to go with the other games (sneaky)
The kids and I put in a game and play, play, play
It may look like fun on the tv commercials - and it is - but it is a big ole workout in disguise
Check out some YouTube videos if you don't wanna take my couch potato word for it :) 

I have been smiling, smiling, smiling that last few days
knowing that my kids and I have spent so much time together 
just playing and having fun
exercising without having to call it exercise

Now to work on drinking water rather than soda or sweet tea
that is going to be super duper super duper 
It is necessary though - a must above all other musts 
(ok except for maybe the exercising thing)
Not only will I feel better, I will stop taking in extra 'empty' calories
and I will stop dehydrating myself which leads
to my sinus issues acting up 
which leads to migraines
So WATER is on my list this year

To digress here - 
This morning my doggy went psycho (I swear it runs in my family) 
and bit my youngest on the face 
Yeah I said FACE
So said doggy is now in need of new home (I cannot send him to a shelter)
One ER visit later, I called in sick to work and spent the rest of today snuggled up to my baby 
indulging him in whatever his little heart desired
movies, candy, hot chocolate, board games, and books
we even spent some time playing with clay - 
me working on some new ideas for pendants,
he was creating something out of a science fiction movie
Getting him in the shower this evening was a BIG accomplishment.. let me tell ya

I spent time working on ideas for pendants.
Did I really say that? I believe that I did
I know that one of my goals for 2012 will be to focus on creating my own beads and focal pieces
I love love love using handmade to create handmade 
I will still be out there using handmade by other artists
but I KNOW that I want to learn new techniques 
that may not necessarily result in a finished piece of jewelry

So let's see what did I forget? - Oh yeah!!! 
Project Runway All-Stars started tonight,
but I won't be able to watch until tomorrow
So SHHH to those of ya'll already watching

And there is something else 
Sign Ups for the 
5TH Bead Soup Blog Party
start TOMORROW!! 
I hope hope hope that I win the 
beady lottery and get to participate again.
For more info head on over to 
Lori Anderson's blog

Much love
