As I write this, it is November eight which means one thing:
It’s only 4 months till my birthday.
So with that in mind, I thought I would get back to focusing on my Countdown to Awesome, and see if I have actually achieved anything.
And I have, so yay me!
So here’s the progress.
#4 Rebrand Diary of a SAHM post publication of said book. I have ideas. It’s gonna be awesome. CHECK
Ok so initially I had planned to do it after the book, but I did it first. Oh well. I’m happy. 🙂
#5 Discover what the smell in the bathroom is. CHECK
It was the bin. Boatman cleaned it out and all was right with the world again. 🙂
#16 Not break any more toes. CHECK
So far, so good. Touch wood….
#17 Not sprain any more ankles. CHECK
#21 Learn how to fold a fitted sheet really well. CHECK
Oh I’m rocking this now! You should see our fitted sheets. Unfortunately there is a smell coming from the linen cupboard which suggests that some small creature climbed in there to see my prowess and then died from sheer amazement. I’m putting Boatman on the job.
#29 Send happy birthday messages on Facebook. CHECK
Ok so I haven’t remembered everyones, but I have improved, even sending birthday wishes to randoms whom I’m really not sure why I’m friends with.
That officially gives me 6 out of the 30 done, but I have made progress on many more.
#1 Learn the piano. IN PROGRESS
Uncle Garry is teaching the kids, and I may or may not be doing their practice for them…
#2 Make a new friend- a good one. IN PROGRESS
I’m loving hanging out with Rhianna from A Parenting Life. I was totes gonna message her to catch up this week but thought I might look desperate…
#3 Publish my book. IN PROGRESS
I’ve been editing like a crazy person, and in communication with a super hero called Stuart who is going to make it awesome! Stay tuned!
#8 Tone up my granny arms. IN PROGRESS
Check out these babies! The wobble is lessening!
#12 Convince Boatman to buy my Photo Shop. IN PROGRESS
We downloaded the free trial so I’m slowly winning him over.
#19 Spend less time playing stupid games on my phone, and more time on twitter. IN PROGRESS
Definitely improving here, but I still have a way to go. Feel free to strike up a twitter condo with me. 🙂
So with 6 down, 6, on the way, I’ve still got 18 to get moving on. Some will be easy, others I’m miles away from. I haven’t even bought any yellow eyeshadow, Auto correct is still making me its bitch, and since moving my Facebook page, the prospect of getting to 1500 likers by March seems highly unlikely. I’m also not very dazzling, especially on Thursdays, but hey what am I if not a woman up for a challenge!
Now who wants to send my some yellow eyeshadow and clean out my bathroom cupboard for me?
Flogging With Some Grace.
(But not flogging Grace. She might like it, but I’m not into that kind of thing ;))
