Blogging 101 and 201–good stuff. No, great stuff. Naturally, you get out of it what you put into it. The important (and encouraging) thing to remember is that there is JUST SO MUCH there, especially for someone like myself who still remembers the Dewey Decimal system. When I started this blogging adventure, I wasn’t merely on the ground floor. More like the basement. But I’ve progressed to some extent, am now helping my husband through Blogging 101, and, lo and behold! I am learning new things the second time around! (As in, “wait-a-minute-how-did-I-miss-that?!?)
My point: any new skill set is, well…new. That is, frustrations and setbacks are to be expected, anticipated, even welcomed as the learning process continues. If I learn nothing else for a particular attempt but patience, that in itself is success.

Thank God It’s Tuesday (a.k.a. TGIT)! Reasons why it’s important to celebrate Tuesday:

Wednesday is celebrated as “hump day” since we’re getting over the hump on the downward slide to Friday, I guess. Thursday is sooooo close to Friday, and Friday is, well, Friday.
Honestly, I do believe that it’s pretty bohemian, (which is Wednesday’s celebration, BTW), to celebrate Tuesday in its own right. Poor Tuesday gets terribly neglected, but when considered in a decent perspective, it offers just as many blessings (albeit some disguised and in need of creative definition) as Friday. Here’s how I celebrate Tuesdays (so far, but open to further suggestions):
I start of every Tuesday morning with an activity I genuinely look forward to—I sit down with my pot of steaming tea, and writing in a journal that is specifically for Tuesdays. It doesn’t matter what the weather’s like, or how busy the day is about to become, or the number of things-I-don’t-want-to-do on my burgeoning to-do list.
It’s 15 to 30 minutes of splashing around in the Fun Bucket before diving head first into the Work Bucket. And very much worth celebrating.
Here’s to a carpe diem start to your Tuesday!—-dawnlizjones
