So, this is my 30's

So, this is my 30's. Not sure what I thought it would be like so not sure if it's living up to my expectations....or exceeding them. Husband. Check. Kids. Check. Anxiety. Check, Check. House. Check. Job. Check. Debt. Check, Check. So, all in all not too shabby. I'm a pretty goal oriented person, but for the life of me I can't remember if this was my goal or not. Somehow in my life it's always been the times when I really don't set out with a plan that I end up having great success. I wonder why that is. I guess that letting things happen naturally instead of forcing them (planning...and overplanning) results in greater successes. Hmmmmm.....ok, so new goal...lay off the goal setting and just live life. Ahhhh there's a concept. I bet my hubby would appreciate it if I just try to kick back and let life happen.

Crap, just this morning I set a goal of losing 8 lbs. I guess I kicked back, let life happen, and shoveled in the Easter candy. So do I give up that goal? Yikes. And the odd thing is that I never diet. It freaks me out. After years of college gymnastics and coaches that were less than appropriate with their weight goals for me....the food issue weighs heavy on me (no pun intended). Ok...saving that discussion for another day.

For now, I'm going to bask in the glory of the last few hours of the weekend. It's been a wonderful weekend. I watched my grandparents renew their wedding vows for their 60th anniversary. Words can't even describe.... Then today is Mother's Day. Not a bad day. Not an exceptionally wonderful day by any stretch. Just a day. But that's ok. I don't need's not me anyway. The boys will be back soon with dinner. What's next???

  1. I love that you created a blog...sounds like a really fun and theraputic thing to do. I have often thought about starting one too (maybe a design blog, writing something...) but not sure if anyone wants to hear what I have to say:) Can't wait to see what else you have in store...proud of you for doing this!
