I have been catching myself saying “I should …” or when talking to a friend “We should…”. I really want to do more. Start doing more, spending quality time on things I want to do and with the people I want to. Life is precious and I should purposely do more and sometimes, that requires planning and more accountability.
This is a good time. My 6 month contract is ending and I am converting to a full time employee- hooray for earned time off and healthcare. I am gearing up for my first real vacation in probably over 5 years. We’re going to Cancun for 6 nights at an all exclusive resort. I also won a vacation package so I’ll be planning that in the coming months. I’m starting to look for a house although it’s nearly impossible to find anything in my price range where I am looking. I am getting more serious about health and wellness. I want to blog more and do more things, so that I can blog more and continue the cycle.
I am starting now. I will more often.
I started going back through my photo album on my phone and will share a few things with you. Sorry for not writing a lot. Including pictures from my phone is most easier than typing.
But here you go!
I went to my first book club a few months ago. Tonya organized and hosted it. We read Wild by Cheryl Strayer. I liked it and meeting with others to talk about it. Tonya also had food, beverages and props from the book. The next meeting is next Sunday and I need to get cracking on reading the book. It’s called the Orphan Train.
A few weeks ago, Tony and I went to a local university to see one of Tony’s good friends from college play at concert. His friend from Berklee who current lives in Nashville is touring with Jana Kramer.
I had a “Me” night a few Fridays ago. Tony has been working late on Fridays. So instead of siting on the couch for 3 hours, one evening I drove myself (yea shocking) to Burlington, went to the dollar store (a favorite thing of mine to do), walked around the fabric and craft store, and around again- because I could and I wanted to. I felt so freeeeee! I also had dinner by myself, gasp!!!! 🙂
A few Saturdays ago, I attended a fitness event at a rock climbing place. We didn’t rock climb (I was a little bummed) but I did a mini bootcamp, Pilates, and yoga sessions, and got to catch up with a blogger friend Danielle.
Around St Patricks Day. I volunteered with One Brick Boston at the Cambridge5k event. I volunteered at the December race too. It was a lot of fun, I didn’t have to pay the $40 entry fee but I got some exercise, met other volunteers and partied with them afterward. I am doing another event with them next Friday.
Thanks for sticking around! I WILL write more often!
What’s something that you want to do more of?
