A Day Full of Thought

I can tell that I am preoccupied today, as I can't focus on any one task for any decent length of time. The blog has been a nice escape, to fill the time while I get my mind back on track.

I have tried to piece together a vacation plan for R---, M---- and me to go to WDW, and we all think that it may be doable, so long as there is no conflict with M----'s school schedule.

I think I need to try to get in touch with C---, if for no other reason than I can put my mind at rest about his current state of being. I hope that he is doing well, and finally coming into his own in Chicago. I hope that I have the strength to leave well enough alone if I find out otherwise.

I decided today that I won't be getting a new computer with my money from E-. Truly, I won't be doing much more with a new computer than what I do with the one that I have now. The programming that I want will run on the computer I have if I only upgrade it. And really, the only reason I'm upgrading my computer is because one program that I want won't run on the current OS. If this program would run on the current OS as it is, I probably wouldn't even have considered the upgrade in the first place. Upgrading costs $130, and a new computer will cost no less than $1400. There are so many more things that I want to do with the money. And that is something that I mean literally. S---- and I want to go to WDW. R---, M---- and I want to go to WDW. I want to go to Providence for Botcon this year. I want to do things. Go places. Live life. A new computer is not going to help me accomplish these things, so the money is better spent on my adventures than on a new computer.

I'm starting to organize out my comics. I have way too many! I need to start deciding what I want to keep, sell, or replace with trade paperbacks. I just want to simplify the clutter in my life, and this is a big part of it. I have stacks upon stacks of comics that I haven't looked at in years. YEARS! I know there are some that I will want to keep, but I'd be willing to bet that there are some that I have never read and a healthy number of issues that I will never read again, and there really is no reason to keep them.

Simplify, simplify, simplify... my mantra these days.

I'm trying to take better care of myself physically, too. I've been watching what I eat, taking vitamins everyday, drinking more and more water; just generally being better about what I do to my body. I know there has been a difference, as I have had a huge jump in energy these last couple weeks. I'm hoping it stays with me, as I haven't felt this good in a long time. The next step is to try to start going to the gym again.

So, there it is - a day's worth of thought. There has been more than just this floating around in my head today, but these are the primary concerns of the day.

Simplify is a good mantra to have, darling. Nice Campbell quote, by the way. Smooches!
