Ok, we are getting dangerously close to my birthday-its almost a month away-and I thought now would be a good time for a little list like update. I’ve got good news and bad news. Bad news is, my weekends are filling up like crazy, in the next month I’m going on a secret vacation with my mom, running my half marathon, going to my sister’s graduation, and then it’s my birthday-and I just don’t think I’m going to be able to cross everything off the list in time. Good news is-I’ve granted myself an extension. Yup. I can hear you arguing with me already, maybe you’re even calling a little bs here, but guess what? Its my party and I’ll cry if I want to. No. That’s not right. I run this show, so its my way or the highway 🙂 Isn’t it nice to be Queen?
So yes. An extension. I’m sorry! It just had to be done. I promise to get them done within the first 3 4 months of my 25th year. Is that ok? Even if you say its not, I’m going with it. Sorry I’m not sorry.
The things I am granting myself an extension on are:
Finish the first draft of my book-I’M SORRY MOM. I’ve got the first 30 or so pages done, but I don’t see me rocking out 200 more in the next month. Mom, I promise that I will get it done and it will be a smashing success and I’ll have lots of money to take care of you in your old age. Promise.
Make moves on a career-I’ve decided that before I make moves I should decide which direction I want to move in. Ya. That’ll probably be a big help. I guess I should stop counting on “playing a spy on TV”…woof
Start horseback riding again– Unfortunately with a full time job that only leaves time for riding on the weekends, and all of my weekends for the foreseeable future are quite booked. But this will happen! Love ponies.
Bowl a strike-sad day. Haven’t bowled a strike since I made the list. I think I need to work on my bowling skills and then we’ll go from there.
Reconnect with an old friend– Ya, I’m kind of a bad person on the inside for not getting to this one. Have I mentioned that I’m really busy? Does that still count as an excuse?
Spend an entire day with my sister– I’m not sure this deserves an official extension, my sister however claims that it will. Remains to be seen.
Those are all the list items that I’m granting an official extension on. 6 list items, that’s not tooooo bad, is it? There is one more change I have to make however-Enter a Cooking Contest- Unfortunately when I had this in mind I was envisioning something along the lines of a bake off or a state fair or something-ya, there aren’t any in my area between now and my birthday. Instead of granting an extension I am just altering it slightly. I will be entering my Whitney’s Chicken Pastry Thingy recipe into a recipe contest. Wish me luck 🙂
