And It Continues...

Well, here it is, several days after my initial 2012 post.  I was thinking I was going to post more and get a jump on many of my 2012 plans to start this year.  However, all of that has taken a backseat to the way I have been feeling lately.

My last couple of days in Newfoundland were not the best for breathing, but, they were relaxing and enjoyable.  I got to see some people before I left and my folks, amazing as they are, ran around and picked up most of the items on my (and my sister's) Newfoundland goodies list to bring back to Charlotte.  Then, so I could visit friends one last time, they even packed all of it away in my checked bags for me!  I am truly appreciative and grateful to have such loving and caring folks!

My marathon day of travel went extremely well, just very draining!  With the exception of one flight attendant, who seemed to be having a bad day all around, everyone I encountered was absolutely amazing, friendly and helpful.  That, and the portable oxygen concentrator system I have lasted the whole trip on it's internal and external batteries without having to be recharged!  That made for a much less stressful trip!

Since returning to Charlotte, I've spent time with great friends who have helped me run errands and get myself 'settled' back into my apartment.  I am completely drained, I'm sure it's from over doing it - as I always tend to do, and breathing is taxed.  (Last night/this morning it was pretty rough, and I'm sitting here today debating what I will be able to do later - I have a couple of errands that need to be run today.)

I'm looking forward to when my sister, and niece, come to visit and to pick up the Newfoundland goodies brought back for her.

Hopefully, breathing will improve over the next couple of hours and I will be able to run my couple of afternoon errands easily.  As for now, a late breakfast, and home-brewed Tim Horton's coffee is in order.

Until later,

Health Update: Breathing is definitely off today, granted it currently is not as bad was it was at 5am today.  I still have to rate today as a rough health day.


2012 Begins

Well, 2011 is over, and even with it's very rough start, it turned out to be a pretty good year. Live Limelight was launched and is growing and doing well. I became an uncle to the sweetest little girl! My photography improved greatly. I have grown my social circles and improved current relationships. Not to mention I have continued my path of constantly learning.

Overall, I am pleased with my success on my 2011 list. Not everything got done, but that just leaves room for improvement this year. ;)

Here is my 2012 list of goals:

1. Continue weight gain. Add another 10 lbs to total 110 lbs.

2. Have at least 4 over night trips outside of Charlotte

3. Get stephencoombsstudios.com launched

4. Continue 'out of hospital' streak

5. Grow LiveLimelight.com - get ads sold, double viewers, create and maintain G+ page

6. Improve daily exercise routine

7. Restart and keep up with illdieanotherday.blogspot.com (purchase domain for it?)

8. Increase use of Google+

9. Prepare and print at least 1 coffee table photo book

10. Plan, and follow through on at least non-music photo shoot

11. Do a 365 instagram project with new iPhone.

12. Create a WordPress theme

Signing off for now, I will be back more regularly.

Here's to a very happy and fantastic 2012 for everyone!


Health Status: After 2 1/2 weeks of excitement I'm having a very rough breathing start to today.
