Happy New Year!

Dear Mom,

A little late, but Happy New Year! So much for being more on top of things for 2012. But hey, I've been busy. I had to make sure I ate the rest of those chocolate Santa heads. Waste not want not. How can you concentrate on goals, like watching your weight, when Santa heads are staring at you? They're not staring at me any more.

I had to make sure I started cleaning out my closet. How can I work on things if I can't find them? Part of it is finished, but now I have the clothes to go through, but at least I can walk in there now.

Next I'll be heading to the writing room, but once I'm in there it might be a long time before you hear from me again. My husband says, "You're the most disorganized organized person I know." That pretty much explain my writing room... a disorganized organized mess. I'm shooting for removing the disorganized part. Wish me luck. I'll need every bit of it.


  1. Hi Lynn,
    Reading about your chocolate Santa heads is making me hungry. Being disorganized must be a writer's trait.

  2. I think Donna's right. Writers have so much swirling in their heads, they cannot keep all those silly, unimportant things neat and tidy.

    I loved the line, "They're not staring at me anymore." I ate Santa's head, his belly and his boots, Mrs. Claus, and all 8 reindeer. Egads!

  3. A messy desk is the sign of a creative person. That's what I say. I look unorganized, but I know where everything is.

  4. Good luck on the organizing. I have weeded and tossed in most rooms the last couple of weeks, but you can't miss a thing! How does that happen? I haven't weeded deeply enough I guess.

    Happy New Year to you too!

  5. Donna, glad to hear it is a writer's trait.
    Sioux, if there had been the rest of Santa I would've ate it.
    Linda, problem is I can't find anything.
    Bookie, I think the weeding is a never-ending task!

  6. We're on the same wavelength. I didn't eat Santa heads, but I tucked into some Mississippi mud pie (yummm) and, like you, cleaned out my closet! It was a disaster in there. LOL Trying to get some writing done, but like you...tough to organize! I know what I want to do but other things pop up. I was going to start edits on my Nano novel, but ending up writing a short story instead. I guess any writing is better than no writing at all. :)

  7. Mom thats totally me ahaha love it
