I find this kinda funny and kinda scary. This Saturday my son will be with his Grandma and my wonderful and lovely girlfriend Kathy will be at work. I find myself wondering what I will do with this time. Of course I have a million little things to do and to catch up on but what about the time in between. Don't get me wrong I am very comfortable with solitude but I always feel like I need to be doing something and have a very hard time just sitting and doing nothing. I am going to try and spend at least one hour doing nothing. Just thinking and being quite. Pete I think has done this before so the inspiration comes from him. Wish me luck and we will see what crazy thoughts come into my head. Wait is thinking doing something?

Well everyone, I am back on www.blogger.com. The main reason for this is that I have recently become a freelance artist and this entails cutting some expenses. This is a good experience though. I am really looking at all the things that I spend money on and deciding if I need it, if I use it and if it is actually useful. I am finding that alot of the stuff I spend money on is simply for the cool factor. Not that having stuff that is cool is a bad thing, but I really feel that I need to get a handle on it and that most of this stuff is just adding noise and clutter to my life. I am now on a mission to minimize everything that I can. I am cutting down on electronic stuff (very hard for me) video games, movies. So in this effort I will no longer be hosting my own website at www.jasonely.com. It is one of the cool factor things that I spend money on and is not necessary when I can have a blog hosted for free here and it does the same thing. It was also eating up a lot of time in upkeep and such. I have more important things to do with my time and I am trying to get as much of the time back to God as I can. So please everyone pray for me because I know this is going to be a struggle for me and I will need all the help I can get.
