    Ideas…

    Do you ever have so many ideas that you lay in bed at night, trying not to think, but that only makes you think more?

    I had that last night. It was not the first night, nor will it be the last, I’m afraid. Maybe I should stop reading magazines before I go to bed? But, I ended up laying wide awake in bed from 12:00 AM to 2:30 AM…

    …thinking.

    I’ve got lots to think about, I guess. My Etsy shop is coming along nicely! I’ve got some ideas of new products to design, photograph and post this weekend. And, I’ve got some house projects that I’m itching to get done – they involve sewing & upholstery, another favorite hobby. More on that later…

    But I feel sometimes that ideas get in the way. I have so many ideas, the trick is to put those ideas into action. My mom once told me that as you get older, it gets easier to just do things. I’m generally finding this is true. I’m getting better at getting an idea, figuring out how to do it, and then doing it. It feels good.

    **2013 GOALS UPDATE**

    Just finished with my 4th book of the year. So far I’ve read:

    — Mockingjay – 3rd book in the Hunger Games series, I enjoyed it.
    — Catch Me If You Can – loved it!
    — Atonement – it was so-so, predictable.
    — Killing Floor, the first Jack Reacher Novel – an entertaining read, but very gory in the details department.

    Been running on the treadmill too. Last week I went 4.5 miles. I also cranked up my speed a little which feels good. 13 miles seems like so far still…
