my 2010 diary arrived in the post today. after a year with moleskine’s black and beige I thought it would be nice to inject some colour in to 2010 and order Redstonepress’s Russian Diary. No. It is not in Russian. It does have some lovely, bright illustrations in it though from Russian children’s literature.
So after filling in birthday’s and anniversaries I made my annual ‘goals for the year list’. And it went something like this:
in no particular order
5. get in shape
which was added as you can see as an after thought. and after eating a cookie.
this year has been mixed bag for me. i feel, now in december, that i haven’t achieved a great deal. yes, yes i know raising a child shouldn’t be dismissed as nothing. but more and more i feel as though it’s become a convenient excuse for me to not do much else. elsewhere in the blogosphere,
a mother of 2 is running in knee deep slush and a mother of four is taking photography classes, shopping thriftily and working out.so really, i have no excuse. there’s still a good three weeks left in the year, and this time round i’m opting out of my usual ‘it’s the last three weeks of the year let’s be a sloth’ and working on my resume. Now. what’s a good way to put ‘spent the last eighteen months trying to wash snot stains out of my clothes?’
(Updated: Also on the list of things to do: get my driver’s license!)
