Distractions or Procrastination

I can waste hours upon hours of each day by logging on to social media. I have liked so many pages from books to health that reading the articles takes my entire day once I get started.  

Sigh.

Each day I try not to. I make lists, I make schedule times, and I still log in and browse around endlessly. I have also set timing on my phone, while it helps to a certain point, I still go on.  

I do not have a timer on the desktop, so I browse the internet A LOT!  

I say every day that I am going to do better tomorrow and then I repeat the mistakes of the day before. I am a creature of habit. I need to figure out how to stop the repetition.  

I want to get back to reading books, drawing, drafting my stories, and exercising. Oh, I love to learn as well. I used to watch videos and take free courses. I miss all that. 

Got to break the habits!

I need to practice in Word! OMG, I have screwed this up several times.

I decided to do Word because I miss the spelling check and the grammar check in WordPress. I will then copy it over to my blog. I hate the writing tool there anymore.  

My editor score right now is 69%  Crap!

I keep changing this article even after pasting it over here.

Shaking my head.

I hate this block crap.

Today I did go through my many emails of blogs I follow. I am going to put on my list to read them more often than every few months. Lists again! LOL

How many of you do lists? Do you follow? I think I just like making them. 🙂

The Combatbarbie365_Shop is Up!

My daughter’s shop. Look around please. 🙂

Lights, Camera, Action

I am so unbelievably excited to share this news with you guys! I have been working hard & staying up late to get this Project up & running! Several years ago, I had this idea to start up my own business. In all truth, I kept making excuses any time I pondered starting. I wanted to create a brand, Forte By Farra, that empowered women with positive vibes & kindness. I wanted to create this platform for women of ALL ages & walks of life to come together & seek comfort; a place where they could laugh, tease, cry, share, & uplift their spirits. Forte means loud & strong or a niché. It was a play on words I wanted to incorporate into the very soul of my business. I’ve been posting random creatively under this idea for a couple years now, but I still haven’t made it come to…

DIY Halloween Costumes – Quick, Easy, & Toddler-Mom Approved

So much creativity!

Lights, Camera, Action

The Voodoo Priestess

Key Ingredient – lots of dark eye shadows & liquid eyeliner!

The Not-So-Scary Scarecrow

Use any Fall color! Yellow, orange, red, or a shade of brown!

The Colored Clown

I chose Pink but you could EASILY do ANY color you want. I might do a Blue Clown next year.

Red Riding Hood the Werewolf

I did 2 versions – 1st is a half & half makeup to show Red Riding Hood & her other persona, the Werewolf. 2nd was the full blown Wolf coming to live, complete with claw slashes and fake blood!

Skeleton Head 💀

A simple and effective costume idea. So many different versions of Skulls & Skeletons out there!

Opening 11-5-2020 in Theaters: Let Him Go

I want to see this one. 🙂

Movies, Movies, Movies

Theaters: 11/5/2020

Wednesday,week #45 of 2020(11/5 – 11/8/2020)

The week following Halloween greets us with another new movie from Focus Features. They seem to be one of few studios taking advantage of all this cinematic spotlight. Hopefully soon others will join instead of going exclusively to streaming.

Let Him Go
[FIRST LOOK]

Don’t test the depths of a grandparent’s love for a grandchild. That seems to be the major conflict in this film starring two experienced, respected actors.

I’m ready to see what Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are up to in this film.

Anticipation: 6/10

Are you looking forward to seeing? Wherever you are watching movies, happy watching to you!
