Pinterest and Other Such Rambles

Tonight I'm flying solo while My Captain Oh Captain, aka My Giant, aka Hubs, aka Moses is away at sea.
I made that sentence much more dramatic than what was necessary and used far too many aka's, but if I haven't lost you yet with drama and aka's then lets move on shall we.
(Now that is Butt A$$ COLD right there!)

While my Giant is gone away for work I tend to stay up way too late, drink way too much wine,and Pin way too many things on Pinterest.

Do you do the same beloved reader ?
Well tonight I realized a few things while happily pinning away.

One- that I haven't been on the site in quite some time.
Two- I think I kinda know why.
( I need this Santa PLEASE)

It's not because I haven't had any interests worth pinning it's just that I have found myself to be overwhelmed with the interests I already have.

I'm pretty sure not everyone Pins things with the determination to actually accomplish those interests, or even come back to them for that matter, but that is exactly what I set out to do when I started my Pinterest site.

I quickly realized how foolish I was to think that was even humanly possible. I mean I am a Sanguine for goodness sakes, and we are just all over the place.
Can I get a witness?

So as I dusted off the shelves in my Pinterest account I thought, ya know what I need to just look at this site in a whole new way.
It can just be a place like, oh I don't know, maybe your favorite Department store. For some that's Macy's, maybe Ross, for me it's Value Village. 
Now these are places that I don't dare set foot in unless I have the money that earns me a spot in the buyers department. 
Ya know what I'm saying?

Pinterest can be a place that if I have the time, using all the time management skills I can muster up then I can allow myself to walk the aisles.
But I dare not roam the streets of Pinterest when I have say... Oh I dunno so, so, so many ...
 Christmas Crafts 
Wrapping Gifts
Writing Letters
Shaving my legs
Advent Calendar clues to write 
Bible Study reading
Praying Wives book club reading
Emails to read
Etsy Shop clean up 

TO DO!!!!

(I'm a tad bit Garland obsessed these days)

Not to mention a reasonable bed time awaiting so that I can wake to the Fab 4 kids in the morning with a smile on my face(that never happens) and a cheerful skip in my step.
Bah-ha-ha... the visual of me smiling and skipping out of my room in the morning just made me LOL for realz!!
My kids would be like,
"Who put a nickel in YOU?"
Needless to say tonight,
in the time management department... cause I can!
What a major time suck you are Pinterest.
I mean how dare YOU?!?

And well so there ya have it my friends. 
My Pinterest account might go untouched until the next time My Giant is out at sea, but for tonight it sure did keep me company.
As did YOU.

That is an amazing couch!
When Mr. Hippie is gone for his yearly retreat, I usually stay up late, drinking wine and reading. Because it just makes the nights seem a little more palatable-what with missing him and all.

That sofa is very interesting! How on earth was that done?! I love that color combination! While I love my Handsome Husband, when he is gone, I hog the whole bed and all the covers!! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

Those chairs are so cool, they would definitely by a statement and conversational piece in any room!

NOEL!!! i'm so glad that my card arrived safely; i've been bad-mouthing my postal service because i'm not getting my mail/packages and neither are those i've sent stuff too! but thankfully yours made it to you so i'm happy.

i haven't been on pinterest in a while either; mainly because i was so guno-ho about it when i first got on many moons ago and now i sort of lost interest. i do however, go on it when i need some inspiration ie. cooking, crafting etc.

I was told by a wise friend that I need to focus. God had called me to something and I am letting unimportant things get in my way. FINE. So I haven't been on Pinterest either. So very sad. Today we are catching up on our advent. Next year I think we will do weekly activities. I don't have the brain capacity for daily things. We have been busy. All fun and important events, but today I have declared it to be jammy day. Pancake day. Funny socks day. Addie's birthday. We veg.

Hi!! Following you back, I'm so glad you got my Christmas card & enjoyed it!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that has to put "shaving legs" on my to do list! After all, I've got to schedule extra time for it! :)

I'd just like to point out that you don't have to feel guilty for some me time on pinterest! Even though we're all busy, a girl needs a little something like that!

But that said, I adore the garland! I love the idea that you could pick and choose fabrics that reflect a room or personality. It's on my diy to do list!!
