Have you ever had the bright idea of going on a long walk, and had the wonderful idea of trying something new? Going somewhere different? Just for the sake of keeping your attention? Well I'm starting to venture down those trails---and finding rocky trails ahead. How do I deal with external forces (like my darling husband's desire for all-you-can-eat sushi? or my family's birthdays? I suppose I'm going to have to make some caveats in my treaty to myself. I don't want to give myself free license, as this is a neat adventure, but I do have to figure out some more concrete rules. As life is a work in progress, so is my project.
