I know that this post is overdue. I have to say that this has been my LAZIEST winter ever. I blame Rose and the icy weather for EVERYTHING these days. Is it just me or is winter bringing out the hibernation in you? I planned to take it easy in July and I think I managed to do just that. Here’s how I did last month:
ENJOY my birthday. I’m going to be away from home. It was my best one EVER!
Do something fun for my husband’s birthday. Perhaps you can suggest something? His birthday falls in the same week of my FIL’s one year anniversary of passing and I suspect that he may be “quiet”. How would you suggest we celebrate this birthday while acknowledging his sadness? We had a quiet dinner and some family over for cake. Was lovely.
Organise my DH’s B-Day present. YES!
Read 1 NF and 2 other books. I read one NF and 4 others. Am so proud of this one. Thank you Rose!
Swim in hot springs. YES. It was absolutely decadent.
6. Get a massage. No. Am off for a spa weekend this month so will do it then.
Decide on what to buy myself as a birthday gift to myself. Decided!
8. Go exercise. I’ve been ordered to take part in this in October so I need to get my act together ASAP. Eish. No. It’s been freezing!
Prepare Child2 for his new school. Make a list of stuff that he needs to be able to do for Grade R and get cracking with him. DONE. He has settled in BEAUTIFULLY. I am so very proud of him.
Relook at the money stuff. On the very last day of the month. Not going to ruin my birthday with this. I am 80 % done with this and need to finish up.
At least one friend date. I had two!
So for August I am going to take it easy. AGAIN. I am just really enjoying being a lazy bum and snuggling more, reading more, sleeping more, eating more comfort food and watching loads of series. This is what I have planned.
Go and spend time with Child2 in his new environment. Meet all his new therapists and talk about the way forward.
An outing to the Planetarium.
Look at High Schools for Child1.
Have a look at current clothing for summer and see what is still needed.
Read. One times NF and one times Fiction.
Finish knitting something that is long overdue.
Have fun on girly weekend away.
One friend date.
One date with DH and two at home dates.
Take a walk through the house and list all “small things” that need to be fixed. Then make a plan to fix what can be fixed.
Go through all bedding and towels and see what can be tossed/donated/ converted into rags. There is too much at the moment.
How are you and how has August treated you so far?
