A person is a success if they get up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
I'm child-free until Saturday so I thought I'd take the opportunity to finally do what a lot of other bloggers have already done... and that's write a list of goals. It's too late for me to write a 32 before 33 list because, eek, I turn 33 in five months! I think it's an important step in reclaiming me - it's been so long since I've had to think about doing something for myself. So for now I'll keep the list short and add to it as I think of things. Clearly at the very top of my list is to lose weight. Five more kilos to lose and I will go for a much needed haircut. The last haircut I went for I ended up being so upset and have kept my hair tied up ever since! Seriously it looked like a cut you would give a four year old and nothing like I had described to the "hairdresser". I had even drawn her a pic of what I wanted but she was off in her own "one cut fits all" world. Needless to say I will be avoiding that salon.
* learn to scrapbook
* get Elijah's albums up to date (that may take a while!)
* find a new place to live (one that's not damp and dusty)
* aim to walk alot more
* get local library membership (I have registered online, just need to pick up a card)
* go to bed earlier
* work on RAKs (random acts of kindness)
* sew a basic quilt
* write a book for Elijah (including his NICU/SCBU story)
* make and stick to a budget
Sometimes in life you end up doing the stuff you 'have' to do and neglect the stuff you 'want' to do. In my case, I don't know what I 'want' to do anymore! I don't know if it's a Mummy thing or if I would have been like this anyway. Mid-life crisis maybe? Hmm I think I may be too young for that! I'm definitely on the upward slope of a steep learning curve though.
