A Perfectionist's Battle

I spent four hours yesterday rewriting a post I'd written and published on my blog six months ago. Then today I read it, hated it, and switched it back to its original version. Meanwhile I'm still not 100% happy with it...

I am totally perplexed why I would waste so much precious time agonizing over an old post, especially . . .

Get up, Get dressed, Get out!

Time for a System Re-boot

This morning I was feeling stuck.

Totally immobilized from stress overwhelm. There were a zillion things I should have been doing but the stress took top billing. All I could think was to call on the wisdom of my mother-in-law.

A New Adventure

Down the rabbit hole I go

New chapter, new adventure...

These past few months have been like falling down a bottomless rabbit hole, hoping to one day land and start our new life.

My hubby and I moved from New Jersey to New Orleans to work on a movie. We uprooted our lives, he quit his job, and we left our apartment vacant. Our intention to set up . . .

Indecision

My Nemesis to Progress

OMG!! I drive myself insane. My brain doesn't stop jumping from one thing to the next.

Deciding to set up this blog was a great idea and I couldn't be happier BUT deciding how to come across, what to reveal about myself, my idealistic long term goal for how I want this to play out is kicking me left, right, and all over the . . .
