It Can Be Done!!!

I just want to write quick note to all my friends that don't want to read a novel every time that they read my blog. I know that I tend to write more then most when i actually do post a blog, but the problem is that I tend to overdo it when I'm writing. My friends in college used to love to have me edit their papers so I could help them lengthen them. So I'm sorry if my blogs are always extra long but that's just the way I am. I will try to make some of them shorter but I hope you'll forgive me if my "once a month" blogs are a little long. If I can ever get around to writing more then once in a blue moon then I promise I'll make them shorter. Thanks for being so understanding about my "Blog Length."

Aren't you impressed that it's less then a whole page long?

Don't Let Life Pass You By!!!

SO...I know that I have been horrible on not blogging for the past couple of months. I have been so busy with everything that sometimes I feel like I don't even have time to breathe. I have some activity or calling that I need to work on every night when I get off work. I'm the Relief Society secretary in my ward and I am always going on visits or making fliers or writing reports. I'm also the Co-Chairperson (and I use that term loosely since I don't have another co-chairperson to help me) for the stake Young Single Adult Committee. So I have to plan Stake and ward activities, and plan 7-stake activities once every 7 months. Then I have a bunch of friends that are always needing rides or help moving or help with some other project.
Plus, I never know what to blog about. I feel like my life isn't that interesting and why would people want to read about what I have to say. Then I don't write anything and all the interesting things pass by without me updating everyone on them. Unfortunately this isn't one of the posts where I am going to update you on all the things you guys have missed over the last year. But I promise to try and post one of those before the end of the year. And let it be known right here and now that I am making an early New Year's resolution that no matter how busy or boring I may find my life I will at least write a post at least once a month. Even if it's just to say that I didn't do anything except go to work all month. I know I might not find myself all that exciting but I have come to realize that blogging is the easiest and fastest way to let everyone that I care about know what's been going on in the "World of Shelly". I need to take advantage of this great gift and not let life pass me by without letting people know that I'm still alive. So if you don't read a new post from me at least once a month in the new year then you can pester me until I write one, as Amy has so kindly done. Thanks for the endless encouragement, by the way. This one's for you Amy. I'm not saying it's cool but at least it's finally here. Now I better go because I'm writing this while I'm supposed to be working.
