mondo beyondo update

So you may remember this from the beginning of the year. Or not. I totally forgot about my goals and my theme but this post reminded me.

To catch you up, my theme for 2008 was The Year of Reconnecting and I had three goals. Here's what I wrote before:

  1. I want to feel like I'm on a very real path to marriage. (Um, yes, this is scary to write. Makes me want to throw up a little bit so it must be a good one.)
  2. I want to have even closer relationships with my loved ones.
  3. I want to take better care of myself. In every way.

Things are going well for #1. Still dating The Boyfriend, which is key. And we have good conversations and took that pre-marriage class awhile back. And my friend NL is so looking forward to a wedding that I think she could have the whole thing planned in about 5 minutes if I gave her the go ahead.

#2 isn't going as well as I'd like for it to. I've spent at least a little time with everyone but not as much as I'd like. It's just so hard to balance everything. Does anyone have a tip or two for this?

#3 has quite frankly sucked lately. I'm sure you've noticed. But I have exercised more these last few months. Again, not as much as I should but it's a start. And I may have been getting enough sleep lately. Yeah, #3 has sucked. Again, how do you have enough time for everything? Anyone? And did anyone else have any goals this year? How's it going?

Well, as far as number 2 goes, we are still trying to figure out how to balance our time with others too. So, if you get any good tips pass them this way!

Pre-marriage class? I think Bubba and I must have missed this one....

I'm very excited I got to actually MEET The Boyfriend! He's wonderful!

Oh, and I try to get things done during the day, but then I feel like I'm trying so hard to live right, that I forget to just LIVE. As Doc Holiday said in Tombstone 'There is no 'normal' life, Wyatt. There's just life. So get on with it!' Don't sweat no. 3, except do try to get more sleep. Your body can handle pretty much anything else, but needs sleep. Oh, and water, so drink more water to help with no. 3, too! :)

Well the thing with #3 is hard for us caretakers. It's putting yourself FIRST before everyone and everything else. It can be done, but it's difficult if this is a new thing. I know a good book you can read...I'll send you one gratis if you email me your addy. =)
