Day One and I'm already Distracted


I promised myself I would get back with the program this week.

I made it to the office early to do email and send out some things. Then I got to the gym and ran on the treadmill. All was working well. Then I called HER.

A lady in my Sunday School class was under the weather and I called to check on her. It seemed she was having trouble getting around the house and the medicine caused her to not want to eat. I offered to bring her some soup and she asked for some 7Up to settle her stomach.

Off to the Publix I go. Another call from the Deli area and we ended up with some Mac and Cheese, Banana pudding, fruit yogurt and the soup and soda from the original request.


Now to deliver the goods. This also meant heating and serving. How is it that it takes so long!



It was 3 something before I could shower and get to the office!


I skimmed the features page and read Lynn Friedman's January Blogging Challenge post.



"NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" I screamed! 

I had promised myself that if I started blogging again, I would not get sucked up in the points war!


OMGosh! This can't be happening again!

We all set goals for the new year. Mine is to stay focused and get my prospecting done before anything else

I don't even think about the points any more. They're fun to have, but NO WAY am I doing a blog every day challenge.

This so reminded me of my day. I started off strong then needed to take a family memeber to the doctors in the middle of the morning. So hard to get kick started as strong afterwards. Pushing it, but just not the same.  LOL

Barbara - When I get back in the groove I'll enjoy it more but right now, blogging is anything but relaxing.

Bruce - It's such a small world! Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by!

Lise - That and working on my Cardio are mine too.

Marte - I really don't think I'll be doing it either. If I get 5 aweek done, I'm happy.

Tammy - Totally hard to get the excitement back!

Kathleen - I so know you do!!

Christine - LOL! Happy New Year, my friend!

Conrad - And I act like that's something new.

Connie, I'm sure you've noticed there's a fight going on for 3rd in TN. I'm done with worrying about points. I'm blogging to get business--nothing more. My fellow AR members will pass me soon. I'm good with it. I've got too many other important things going on in my life right now. 

I commend you for being such a good Samaritan to your friend. Jesus loves you and in the big scheme of things, isn't that all that really matters?

Posted by Tammie White, Broker, Franklin TN Homes for Sale (Franklin Homes Realty LLC) over 5 years ago

Connie, You are a good friend and go one step further. I am smiling that there are still people like you and how blessed your friend is to have you and know she could ask. We need to talk soon.

Connie, sometimes it's not feasible to participate in all of these contests.  I know that I will have to be away later this month so the contest was not an option for me.  Aside from that, I am a,lowi be myself the luxury to skip a day of posting  here and there.  Take your time to get back into the habit and do it on your terms.  All the best for 2015!

So easy to be distracted Connie.  I personally choose not to participate in most contests because of just this reason.  But, I know that you can balance it out and I agree with Silvia Dukes PA, REALTOR you can do this your way!

LOL Connie Harvey I know you were a blessing to your friend, but like you, I saw Lynn's Contest too, and now, I am struggling to keep up. Like, Tammie White, I not really hungry for the points these days, I just want to blog for the business. Have a Blessed 2015!

I am promising myself I will get back to daily blogging but I just cannot fit the contests in.
