my word, my year ~ your word, your year

Well, here goes, I am going to try to define my year, or at least give it a kick in the pants, by owning the word I chose to define it.

My friends and family say that I am not a procrastinator (aren't they sweet).
Maybe it's just that I have so many things that I want to accomplish that I feel as though I am one. So perhaps I just need focus!
There are so many things that can claim our time. I am pulled in so many directions all week.

I have designing in the studio and writing instructions and class outlines to get done, then there's shipping orders and running errands (you can all relate) Then add into the mix updating my website, my blog, facebook, emails, newsletters, and then all the new techniques and ideas I want to try. Like adding video demos to my site.
Then of course there is socializing with friends and family which is essential and fun along with gardening and walking. Don't forget to add other fun stuff like cleaning, cooking, paying bills, blah, blah, blah..........
I just have so many things that I want to do.
I love learning and I have a lot to learn.
So this year I will try to continue to learn and explore but also to stay more focused and centered. I am going to create a printed schedule for whatever can be blocked in to a time slot and then I will follow it and I'll see what happens. Sounds good on paper right LOL.
I am open to suggestions from you - I need all the help I can get, and I know I'm not the only one with this dilemma.
Maybe as a collective brain we can all make some headway.

Let's see what was I going to do now? LOL

What's in store for you in the year ahead? Have you already defined 2010?

If I were to definite 2010 with one word - it would be DISCOVER. My goal is to try out many new quilting skills to learn what kind of quilter I really am. New website: (

Darlee, discover is a great defining word and I hope your journey ends with the answers you are looking for. At least you'll have fun along the way.
