Ambition and Mondays Don't Mix

Shout Out: To Shasta whose birthday is tomorrow! Happy Birthday my dearest friend!!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I sure did. It was fantastic to see my aunt and cousins. Poor Bobby went Day-After-Thanksgiving-Shopping with us. He did well though and there is always an invitation for next year.

As many of you know I like to march to the beat of my own drummer. Sometimes that drummer is really fast other times he is really slow, but whatever the beat it usually turns out well if I follow it. Which is why, four weeks before Christmas I decide to "turn over a new leaf", or more to the point, become that ambitious person I always knew I was.

I decided to enact this new found ambition yesterday, Monday morning. My ambition was there at 6:00 AM (not 6:15 per usual), but my body told my ambition to take a flying leap as it was tired and went on to hit the snooze alarm twice. To be fair to my body though we just had a major break and a road trip. Those do not make for good combinations when trying to start a new routine.

Then, my other ambition was to change my hours at work to go from 8:30 - 5:30 every day. As I had been working only 9-5. Again, this didn't quite work out the way I had envisioned either. Since I hit the snooze alarm twice it set me back, and I didn't start work until 9. Then, the day was a tad slow so I ended up walking out at 5.

You would think this might put a damper on things, but no it didn't. Despite the setbacks it was still a really good day. Then I decided to blog about it. This was another ambitious plan. See I'm starting my new business and I want to blog about that as well, so I set up my computer last night and blogged while watching One Tree Hill. Alas as I went to set the fonts for the post I ended up deleting the post... TWICE! I decided not to try a third time.

I was also going to watch, The Secret of My Success, because it is the Secret of My Ambition. LOL, oh come on, that's funny! However, I ended up going downstairs and hanging out with the family and talking with Melissa. That was by far the better idea, so again, didn't quite work out, but that's okay.

So here we are today. I only hit the alarm once. I got to work at 8:30, but obviously won't be starting until 9. However, I can stay late today. So that is all about me.

Now, I read this article yesterday. And it was such a sweet article. If you too want warm fuzzies, please read this. (I also like the fact that the picture displayed is the same as my phone.)

I hope you all have a great day and I will be chatting with you later! Love to all!!
