12/11/11 - MI 2 of 3 COMPLETE!

Well, it took forever but I just completed my 1st project in my craft room/bedroom/office so I feel comfortable declaring MI 2 of 3 complete! Woohoo!

You may recall...
Mission Impossible 1 = get my room organized and cleaned, and clear things out.
MI 2get the rest of my photography and scrapbook boxes unpacked and the equipment set up for use... by Sunday night at the very latest. Everything --my bedroom, my craft room, my office-- all in one room, organized and functional.
MI 3complete tribute albums to Dad as Christmas Gifts.

OK. Break time is over. Back to work. I mean play. I mean work. What a dilemma! :)

In addition to my friends and the blogs I follow that keep my dream alive, here are some things that spurred me on today:

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
~Albert Schweitzer

The belief that the future will be much better than the past and the present is known as the optimism bias. It is present in every race, region and socioeconomic bracket.

Scientists propose that one of the main functions of memory is to imagine the future, thus enabling us to prepare for what is to come.

Thought For The Day
The kingdom of God, where there is always abundance, is within you!


  1. Congrat's to YOU,job well done!

  2. @ JB - "Why, thank you very much kind sir," I say as I curtsy. ;)

  3. Hmmm... a main function of memory is to imagine the future. Should that be called "premembering?"

  4. Heres a quote from my friend Cindy Bonish, and

    "When we realize our insignificance in this world, it somehow relieves the pressure from society to succeed"

  5. Glad you are making progress! Eceryday is inspiration for me! Thank you DSD.
    So I just got into checking out voyager54 blog and come to find out that once again greta minds thinkalike. for years I have thought and talked about the idea of turning a cargo trailer intoa camper like he did. He has taken to a whole new level though with the solar panels and wind turbine. My planwas to use a generator but mine was just a temporary use level. This is just a really great idea.

  6. @ LR - Thanks dear friend. Love you! John shares a lot on his blog but he is very friendly. If you have any specific questions I know he'd love to hear from you. He lists his email address. Tell him you're a friend of mine. I could see you doing the cargo trailer camper thing - especially with your can-do handyman know how! :)

  7. @ BlackSheep - Found the Bonishes through one of your previous blogs. I like their websites. I have to be careful about thinking of myself as insignificant or small. I tend to beat myself up enough as it is and could really use that whip! :) I get the concept tho. She's right. And I think those of us who can or do live as full time RVers, have a whole different definition of success from normal society's point of view. Thank God! LOL. :)

  8. @ Maria - you crack me up! Love it. You should look up Dr. Caroline Leaf and post that as a comment for her. Too funny. :)
