Something HAS to be done

After a week of one disaster after another (car dying, glasses frames broken, reduction in Child Support) the mess in the apartment is too much. I need something better than FlyLady. I cannot stand all the freaking emails. It worked for me for awhile until she started with all the "testimonals" (a/k/a "commercials") for her products. And it felt like I was constantly picking up; and I only had the 2 kids then. My main problem as my Dearest has pointed out: my irregular sleep schedule. SO. I decided to create ONE new habit for the next 21 days: go to bed at 11pm and wake up at 7am no matter what day of the week or if it's a James week or not. (Incidently this is his last week of school, and it's a Daddy week). I even set the alarm on my Palm to remind me to go to bed. And then: BABYKINS. Cry cry cry, fuss fuss fuss. Cry and fuss, fuss and cry. Cruss and Fye. So here it is, almost 1 am and I'm still up. Farming. Reading other blogs. Procrastinating going to bed. And now I'm peckish and keep thinking about the pita bread and hummus I bought today....

Amazon Associates

I just signed on to the Amazon Associates program, not to make money but because I love "shopping" there. I read a lot. Or I used to. My mom got me the 12th book in the Wheel of Time series "The Gathering Storm" which I'm thinking about starting. It's a thick book and I want to make sure I can read it without a huge gap. Also, it was the last Christmas gift my mom will ever give me. I wish I had known it would be her last Christmas. We never think of those things as they are happening. I also would hate to die unexpectedly without having ever read it. My mom had checked out about 5 books the day before she died. She was an avid reader too. We like many of the same authors: Jonathon Kellerman, Robert B. Parker, Jesse Kellerman just to name a few.
