A New Direction....

I am not a person who likes to make plans. I rarely think out things and do them. I spend lots of time thinking of lots of things but by the time I get to the end of my thought process I decide I am too tired - from all the thinking - or no one would like it , want it, care about it.... yada yada yada. I've never planed a pregnancy, a trip to the store an outing with the kids (outside of the week before birthday parties). And I LOVE surprises. I am a fly by the seat of my pants type of girl and I am happy that way. Most of the time.
I do not know if it is the Gemini (take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly dancing from flower to flower. To them life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labor and routine. Changing horses in the middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Gemini personality which makes decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for them.*more information can be found here) in me, the Bipolar or if I have undiagnosed ADD/ADHD but I flit around from subject to subject, place to place, person to person.... And I have noticed that I am doing it with this blog as well.
In my meanderings around in this new to me blogging world I have had an epiphany. Though I started this blog as a journal and way to keep in touch with family, I also want to meet new people and develop new friendships. As I have found myself in many other's blogs, the most "popular" seem to have a set theme or theme days.
Knowing a lot of things but not a lot about them I decided that one particular thing is not going to fly. That would involve research and honestly - sounds pretty boring. So I have decided to try something new. PLANING. Therefore, as of February 1st 2009, I am establishing the following schedule....
Spiritual Sundays. This is a time when I will blog about something I heard at church, scripture I read, poem I encountered.... you get the idea.
Memories Monday. A blog time for me to share a childhood memory, photograph or something that I want to document that my family did.
Tantalizing Tuesday. Time for me to share a recipe I've found.
Wellness Wednesday. Our lives are touched so much by different afflictions that I want to spread some knowledge about it.
Thoughtful Thursday. This will be my day for expanding my perception of life. Contemplation and input from YOU!
FUN FRIDAY. These days I am going to encourage my creative and humorous sides. Crafts jokes and the like...
Saturday Sunshine. I am honestly not sure what I am going to use Saturday's for. You didn't really think I'd make it to plan EVERYDAY, did you?

Now I am going to ask for your help. I have tried to make it simple to let me know what you think of my postings. I am not going to ask you to leave a comment (though I do REALLY REALLY enjoy them.) At the end of each post it a little question of whether you found the post interesting, funny or cool. Please mark a box so I know what to write more about.

Thanks! I can't wait to start this new PLAN! ;)
