This post from Amy at Just a Titch about her life by the numbers motivated me to make my own.
And then it was depressing.
I made a list of 14 things I am excited about long-term. Let’s go into those by the numbers: six are friend things, five are wedding things, four are races, three are family things, one is work-related and one is lurve-related. These categories aren’t mutually exclusive obviously, some events hit multiple categories.
That’s a good disbursement. So, why am I bummed? Beyond the obvious that I hate that other people’s wedding have hijacked my year and bank account because even I’m sick of hearing myself complain about that.
(But BTW, when it’s my turn to play dress up in a fluffy white gown, remind me to spend time with and show appreciation to my bridesmaids. You know, the girls who mean so much to me that I want them up there with me on the biggest day of my life and who are doing me a huge favor. Okay, bridesmaidzilla rant over.)
The issue is that the closest thing (lurve) is this weekend (because you can’t look too far down the road in such a new relationship-thing-not-a-relationship-we-are-totes-just-hanging-out-and-it’s-cool-ugh-labels-suck-and-trying-to-be-cool-when-I’ve-had-26-years-of-experience-being-not-cool-also-sucks).
AND, moving on, the last thing is a half-marathon in December, 248 days away. Just 14 things in 248 days? Not enough! I am looking forward to a family trip over Memorial Day weekend and then my birthday in August. They are 67 days apart!
Um, excuse me, summer? You’re supposed to be awesome!
There’s literally NOTHING in June and July. Well, there is a baby shower in the works. And who doesn’t love wrapping toilet paper around a hormonal [single] mommy-to-be?
Now, I’m the first person who will tell you that if you’re bored then you’re boring, so it’s actually good that I looked ahead and realized my summer was veering into less-than-awesome territory.
This is how I spent last summer:
That ain’t not happening again!
This might be a great time to dive into my 101 list. Time to start planning!
BTW, it’s supposed to be 97 degrees on Friday…summer is here now. Oh joy.
