|Hello lovies. Here we go 2013, watch out…you’re conquered!
It’s that time of year again, to reassess my plan and see what is and isn’t working for me….
1. I want arms like Evangeline Lilly. Doing much better here this time around I’m happy to report. I have the weights at the office and do them when I get to work in the morning and then right before I leave. The little 3 minute routine gets me up and moving. I’m actually looking forward to it now instead of dreading having to pump my arms. I’ll need it now that the puppy is growing.
|2. 2013 Journal – Still going strong on this. I’m loving having something all of my own that I can be happy for myself in, have my own successes and even vent to. I missed the ability to just cuss and yell at something without recourse. It’s easy to have someone you yell at, but I hate (despise) the aftermath, I’m learning that writing it all out helps me not only get rid of those ugly feelings, but also understand where the person may be coming from and life is easier.|
|3. I want to pull back out my Rosetta Stone: Italian and tackle it. Complete fail, but now that Penny is home, I’m seeing some cozy Sunday afternoons of puppy love and watching the vocabulary fly by!|
|4. I want a Great Dane.Penny has come home. Amen. We’ve had a few bumps already, she’s had to go back to the breeder to take care of knuckling, and I’m already getting my stripes for learning how to deal with things. That said, she’s AMAZING. She’s sweet, kind, goofy and perfectly clumsy. I can’t wait to take her to parks and get her and Ralph more acquainted.|
|5. My Photography is going to make a comeback. Ha. Fail. I’m sorry. I need to take pics of the puppy, I know those pics, while cute, won’t be the best, it’s hard to get something that moves so sporadically! That said, no excuse, I need to keep a camera up and charged at all times.|
|6. A+: Complete! With 34 years closing in fast, I think it’s time to set some goals about things to do before I’m 40. So the current list looks something like this: Marry. Have one kid. Get a great dane. See Paris. Finish one fiction novel. Learn violin again. Learn one great song on the piano. Start one large public singalong. Write my younger years memoirs for my kid to read. See Seattle. See Scotland. Sell the hats I make on Etsy. Strut one catwalk. There’s other things, but by 40, this is doable…I hope! I’ve added race a car to the list. I even bought a journal to track the journey and keep mementos of each of these big moments. I’m a journal addict. Help!|
|7. Finally, after all those things…it’s time to relax and be independent. I’m getting so much done around the house lately. I can’t wait til the free weekend pops up and I can FINALLY tackle that crazy closet. That said, I know that’s not necessarily relaxation, but preparation for relaxation. Although the to-do list never seems to end and this concerns me. So that said, I recently considered running, I know it’s not the best for your knees, but I’m thinking it’s beneficial for the pups and good for my brain (and body) too. Fingers crossed, and no promises!|
