... and time marches on

Almost February 1st, 2011 ALREADY.  Every time I turn around, I'm startled by how quickly the time marches on.  And have you noticed that it does so no matter what's going on in our lives? So it reminded me of an old "Ann Landers" column (or was it "Dear Abby") in which she answers a 40-year old woman's question about whether or not she should pursue a higher-education degree.  The woman was concerned that perhaps she would be too old by the time she completed it.  So Abby (or Ann) responded that no matter WHAT she decided to do, she would STILL turn 50 in 10 years!  That message has stayed with me ever since.  And although I've considered going back to school for a Master's degree (and soon after decided against it)...I know that there are things I want to do with my life.  I'm working hard on my etsy page ( and have also created a Facebook page for JuJuBeads (called "JujuBeader").  A little work on it every day helps me to feel like I'm useful and productive.  OH!  AND, I've also lost 6.6 lbs since 1/2/11!  Looks like Weight Watchers + 30-minutes a day on my stationary bike 4-5x/week REALLY works!  I guess the moral of my story is:  *discipline feels GOOD*.  I'll check back in shortly and give you another update.  Thanks for stopping by!
