Let’s update on the 7 in 2007 list, shallwe?
1. Bring my GPA up to 3.0 or higher
I did bring my GPA up, but it will not break the 3.0 mark. Dropping out last spring with “the thorn in my side” didn’t help a whole lot.
2. Exercise more
Accomplished, if only because “exercise more” is so freaking vague. However, according to my lovely physician, I lost 30 pounds from 9/2006 to 9/2007.
3. Take instruction in tai chi
Newp. Didn’t happen. Registered for a class, then decided that sitting on the sofa with little boys piled on my lap was better for us all the way ’round. I’m out enough as it is with school and work.
4. Get out of the house and into some new/different social situations.
Most decidedly accomplished. I still have really seriously awkward moments – it takes me entirely too long to move on from an ended conversation. I’m most proud of my attendance at ConvergeSouth 2007. An entire weekend surrounded by strangers in unfamiliar environments and not a panic attack in sight.
5. Better blog posts
Once again – “better” is a vague description. Has my writing improved? Yes. Is there better writing in there? absolutely.
6. work up my yarn stash
heh. haha. *snort* hahahahahahahahahahahaha *thud*
7. Travel more with the kids
We went to Mamaw’s Big Birthday Bash in July, and that was it. A lovely idea, but since I’m the only adult, travel is quite simply more than I can handle. All the driving, kid management in a new environment (difficult even before I drive for a few hundred miles), and then getting myself settled down? Thanks, I’ll just stay home and we’ll daytrip.
Don’t worry, I’m already working on my list for next year. It’s going to be a good list, too. Just like everyone else’s.
