    Hi fellow-Hubbers, particularly those whom are engaging in this hubbing marathon!!!

    So, I figured I want to do a 30-day challenge, not just hubbing, which for some reason I just realize I have to post actual hubs-- not little forum topics, so that will require alot of topic and discussion... but I also wanted to add it onto another 30-day type of challenge, which I believe will be short exercises, such as WALKING!!! My goal is to awake 5days/week, write a lil' (for an hour since I gotta hub now, I guess...uh-oh, do I feel the burnout already since I have two babies and a family to feed/care for/entertain...) and take a walk--a quick walk around the block. My schedule was going to be to hub each weekday morning, and later on at night on weekends, and exercise/walk 3 mornings a week with 2 indoor-dance sessions per week as well. Hmmm, I don't think that is too hard for this stay-at-home mom, I just gotta add it into my schedule of waking with the babies, changing them, feeding them, teaching/engaging with them, preparing/eating lunch, break/naptime, cleaning/prep for dinner/other agenda matters, dinnertime, prep for bedtime (kids,) hubby time, and good-night time. Hmm, can I really do this? I'm also going to start my last full semester of college, so there will definitely be an adjustment after 3 weeks. Hmmmm, I don't know if I can do this...but, I gotta give it a try...and simply try not to FAIL...and if I do, Jah help me, just gotta get right back up without too much complaint/high-expectations!!! For, it is okay to fall and get back up again...what doesn't kill me...... Amen~

      btw, i may not do hubbing, i may just do forum posts. big_smile ...only cuz hubbing requires a great deal of time, editing, and brainstorming. Forum topics are easier and more engaging. So, look for me: sandieganliz

      wait- i just notice if i do forum posts, i gotta come back to respond/reply...unless i do one which doesn't really require feedback. hmm, we'll see...may be too ahead of myself...i just wana write-on quick lil' topics, but i also wana hub--small ones. decide, decide, decide!! X-)

    You have made some lofty goals, although not impossible, with all the demands on your time. Just take it one day at a time, and if you can't make it one day, try again the next. Don't be too hard on yourself, but celebrate your victories. Great example to us all.

      Ok, so I have a problem with indecision. I confuse myself--can't make up my mind--a trait I have noticed about myself and do aim to fix. (There's a topic!) Anyway, the reason I state this: I wrote my first hub for the challenge!!

      Day 1:

    I did a Day 3, but it's turning out to be a long one which requires lotsa editing and redraft, so that one might not be up until Day 4 or 5. I kinda already know my next topic, and it might not be too long. In fact, it may showcase my insecurity. Uggg, no one is really reading this post on this forum, but hopefully a few hubbers will, and hopefully they will see my progress on my 30-30 quest. Thanks to all you!!

    Day 3: To be Continued

    Day 4: Coming up!

Gotta very important appt. today in which paperwork was E-mailed to me late AND NOW my printer isn't working (!!!) cuz my guy decided to leave coins on it, and my 2.10 yr. old decided to put it in the PRINTER!!!! So, now I gotta rush to my school to p/u the paperwork, then to my dad's to drop off the toddler and fill out the paperwork!!! Dang it!!! So, hopefully HUB TONIGHT!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    Good luck to you, Sandie!!!

    We all make resolutions to incorporate things into our daily routine that are healthy or constructive and have a bit of trouble sometimes following through...

    Life is a dance you learn as you go, and it seems a LOT of things happen while we've made other plans.

    Not to worry, deal with what you have to do, then get back on track.  S'ok, it happens.

    Ha--so, I posted a forum topic called, "Addicted" which I will consider a piece of writing because it is very meaningful to me, spontaneous, and poetic. It was most-likely too short to be a hub, so, I cannot post it as such, but a day may be missing because I am considering this forum topic like a hub. It's a pretty cool one!! I say, anyway. big_smile

    sandieganlizposted 13 years ago, I am officially behind because I took the weekend off...and I don't even know what day I am on. I am assuming I am 4 hubs behind, and I stopped at Day 11. I need to get writing, but today (of all days,) I have writer'z block. Shoot!! I'm not frantic, but if I wanna keep to this commitment, I gotta get back on track and come up with material to write on. I had inspiration yesterday too, but no time to write. Shucks!! Next time I will write down the topic and thoughts on it, and turn it into a hub. Hmm, I wonder if anyone knows if we can save our hubs to a hard-drive??! Anyone??!

    Hmmm, I just reread my posts (particularly because I'm the only one reading 'em,) and it appears it is good I continue to track my progress here. Even though I am behind alot now, I am still in the running. It feels great. I start my last year of college in a week and a half, but I am managing to take care of a lot. Writing does appear to come last, but because I love to write so much, I do it.

    Shoot, I need to figure out if I can save hubs to a hard-drive... and I need to count how many hubs/writings to how many days have passed. Whoopieeeeee smile
