Three Impossible Things

Before Breakfast

I just had a moment where I really sat back and reflected on my life. Do you ever do that?

I hear all the time that I’m so young. I haven’t really lived, yet! Part of that is because I look younger than I am due (yay! Genetics!), but I also think people underestimate my life. I’m 29, but I’ve done more and lived through more than many people twice my age.

I’m only 29, but I’ve…

- gotten married. Lived through an emotional marriage. Gotten the strength to leave.
- found my second “the one”. The true one who I want to be with until the end.
- bought a house.
- finished college.
- been broke and unemployed.
- changed careers… Twice.
- been diagnosed with a life changing illness.
- lived through a house fire.
- watched loved ones die, found deceased relatives, and supported my (ex)husband through the loss of his first parent.
- traveled.
- met celebrities.
- helped raise a child.
- watched my step-daughter have children and start a family.
- watched my niece grow-up.

But even after doing all of that. There’s still so much left to do. I had big plans for my life as a child. I was going to become rich and famous. I was going to be a star.

That didn’t happen.

But I also wanted to live life to its fullest and do as much as I could before I died. Well, I have lived a good, full life, so far. I can only hope my next 29 years will be as full as the last.

It’s a beautiful day. #Atlanta #DragonCon

Got our Christmas tree up! Just a small, nerdy Doctor Who inspired tree. With no kids we don’t need anything huge. Try to ignore the partial patch where we started working on the dining room, but haven’t painted yet. #christmas #doctorwho

Dear Foamy, The fact you powered down my laptop makes it difficult to use. Also, if you don’t mind moving, it would be appreciated. Love, Mommy #cats #kitty

Let’s Talk About Planners: Choosing a Planner - Bound Planners

One of my first entries on this blog was about how I was going to do my own DIY hPDA (hipster PDA) because I couldn’t find any planners that had everything I wanted and blah blah blah. The truth is… that endeavor fell on its face. Shortly after that I…
