LISTENING: Haha... I came home long enough to toss a load of wash in and to do a couple emails. I found that Currently was being posted, sooooooooo here I am! :) I could have said something more fun like I was cranking holiday tunes, but ... it's really my washing machine doing it's version of the Macerena! :)
LOVING; I am enjoying a more simplified (less stress) life. It's a long story, but the last month I have been working on de-stressing. I'm spending less time glued to the Internet working, and more time outside, enjoying the scenery! :)
THINKING: Even though I have simplified my life, I am still planning out a few work projects. I have a new laptop which is going to help me be able to create from remote locations. How fun is that?
WANTING: I'd really like to finish up my Christmas shopping this next week. I am almost there! Whew! I am not a real fan of crowds, especially holiday crowds. How about you?
NEEDING: To get my Christmas tree up. I was debating over putting up a live tree. Though with the dogs in the house, maybe not a good idea. The outside Christmas lights have been up for 2 weeks. #onlyoneintheneighborhood #clarkwgriswold
GIVING: I am pretty blessed. Even though I am not wealthy by any stretch, I still believe in giving back. For a couple years now, I have given a portion of my sales to the Gary Sinise Foundation. If you are not familiar with this organization, they build smart homes (and provide other services) for wounded soldiers, EMT/Fire/Police. Mainly soldiers that have lost limbs and have combat wounds. What I like about it is that the majority of the funds raised go to the actual building of homes, rather than a lot of admin. costs. The man who founded it, you might know - Gary Sinise from CSI NY and Forest Gump.
