Report From Ladder Company 40 Days 178-183

Hi Team!

(March 17-22)

Wow, have I gotten behind or what?!  My life is picking up speed and I am finding it harder and harder to sit down and get my blog done.  And the sad thing is that it isn't because I'm avoiding it.  I like my blog.  I think personally that it can get to be on the boring side when it is all accountability report and no anecdotes to go with it, but I love the the feedback and encouragement I get from blogging.  And when I do have stories to tell it is really fun to tell them.  The problem is simply that there are not enough hours in a day or days in a week to do all the things I want to do.

Why am I rambling about all of this?  Well, it is because it is high time that I find a solution to the problem.
I could, of course, just stop doing some of the things I do to make more time for others.  Actually, I already have.  I could blog less often.  I've done that too.  It isn't going so well because by the time I get to it, I have forgotten details of the very things I am hoping my team will hold me accountable for.  I could stop blogging all together.  I don't want to.  I have made some nice friends here and, as I said before, I appreciate the comments and encouragement I find here.

Those are the only ideas I came up with, save for one.  What is that, you ask?  Okay, so maybe you didn't ask but I'm going to tell you anyway.  The ony solution I can come up with is to revamp this blog.  I don't have all the details yet, but I am thinking of blogging weekly, (on the weekends) reporting on my progress with keeping active, drinking enough fluids and getting enough sleep.  (well, more sleep than I used to anyway.  I am not sure I will EVER get to the point that I get enough sleep!)  It would be a general weekly rating instead of my daily three for three.  I give details of how much I drank, just the number of days I met or exceeded the goal.  Same for exercise and sleep.  Then I will try to tell something about my week in each blog.  That should be easy now.  I have this week to finish up my CERT training.  I am sure there will be something interesting to talk about from that.  Then next week on Monday EMT school starts. 

OMG!  I can't belive it is almost here!  That sure creeped up on me fast!  And CERT classes made me realize I am probably overdue for my second hepB shot.  I wonder if that means I have to start over?  UGH!  I hope not!  Oops, that wasn't what I intended to write about.  Back at the ranch....

I hope that I will have the basic format figured out in my head by this weekend.  I probably will not blog again until then.  I hope that isn't too disappointing for you, my loyal team.  I need your support and encouragement as much as ever and I want you to know I truly appreciate it.  You have been faithful followers and I doubt I would be where I am without you all gently kicking me in the backside from time to time.

Feel free to leave input as to what you would like to see here.  I don't want to make this a chore for you to read as I fear it has been too often already.  If you like seeing certain things here or have questions, please let me know.  I do like to talk.  I just don't always know what to say!

I will write at you all later!

Stay safe!
