As my birthday passes for another year, I have just under twelve months to get through my 40 before 40 bucket list and I thought I would check in to share how it’s going with you.
Get a wrist tattoo AND get a matching tattoo with my daughters – check! My penguin on my left wrist and a bow on my right wrist. Both Tiesha and Madeline got the same bow tattoo as well. The idea behind it is that no matter how far apart we are, we are always tied together. We’re archiving the design in case Giorgia and Annabelle wants to get it done too. When they are old enough, of course.
Finish my “chick corner” – check! I’m loving that I have my own little work space. Even though it is in the living room. And it hasn’t looked this tidy since the day I took this photo.
Find out what smash books are and get one – check! The thing I like about my smash book is that it, and my supplies, doesn’t take up much room and is a much better hobby for me than scrapbooking right now. Even though I really want to do scrapbooking.
Decorate the mantle each holiday – check! Well, I’m calling this one done any way because there will always be more holidays and birthdays to decorate for. I blogged about my Valentine’s Day decorating and have since made it pretty for Easter and our birthdays.
Buy a coffee machine – check! I love my coffee machine. Even though I bought the wrong size pods twice.
Get my engagement and wedding rings fixed – check! In a fit of rage after arguing with Bill about three years ago, I drove to the nearest jewellery store and asked them to cut my rings off. Because I couldn’t get them off. They sat in my drawer and I refused to get them fixed and wear them again because I would have had to get them enlarged. So I made a deal with myself (and Bill) that when I lose some weight, I would get them fixed without getting them made bigger and stick them back on my finger.
I have a few things in progress right now. Like getting at least halfway to my goal weight, learning to use my camera in manual mode, finding a “real” job and getting Chez Gray decrapified and organised.
And plenty more to get onto.
