Later This Year…

       I don't know how I can go for weeks without even considering writing a post to all of a sudden I have things to say every few days. Maybe my recent posts are just not that interesting and I should cut back again, I have no idea. I do know that I updated my doll book this weekend for the first time since January. I have been a bit of a slacker. So with the last dolls I made, the hoodie dolls I finished this past week, I have made 1,754 dolls since I started making dolls way back in November of 2006. I have been making dolls for a long time. I have changed the way I do things, gotten A LOT of practice, tried new things, worked through the ugly stage so many times and later this year I will reach another milestone. 1800 dolls. I definitely don't have time to do that before Breyerfest, since that would be 6 or 7 dolls every week until then, but I can make 46 more dolls this year. And I am sure that I will. It's only May after all. Though May seems to be going somewhere in a hurry. Somehow it's already May 19th!

     This weekend was pretty good. Yesterday I was possessed by the cleaning bug (after I did a very real workout) and I cleaned my whole house, which already didn't look like it needed cleaning, but I did it anyway. I also did 4 loads of laundry, which I think is a record. I normally do maybe 2 at the most in a day. But like I said, I was possessed so I just kept going. Which also means I don't have any other laundry to do for at least a week. Which is excellent. I finished a book, started another, and hung out with Brandi. It was a really excellent Saturday. I also had just enough very even soreness in my back to tell me I have designed a workout that hits every one of the muscles. Perfect, that was what I was aiming for. I have a vague full body soreness that tells me I am doing all the right things but it is vague enough that I know I am not doing too much. I really want to get back into weight lifting. But that is even slower to get into than running. But I actually love lifting weights so I will keep, carefully, working at it. 
     Today was a nice day as well. I updated my doll book, read some more and then I went to visit with a friend I have not seen in a while. It was a really good day. Tomorrow I have to go back to work, but we only have 19 days of school left this year. I am not sure what dolls I will be making this week, but I will figure it out. Maybe I will make some more hoodie dolls. Maybe I will start in on some western pleasure dolls. Maybe I will start on dolls to show in the Art of the Horse show in July. That could be fun!

But that's how it works. Writing posts makes you want to write more posts. Not writing them... Well, the more days go by, the harder it gets!

I'm glad you're writing again!
