Right, I need to quickly review the status of TLYW, let’s do that now. I can use those handy Categories on the right there to assess my progress and pick up two or three Achievement points as necessary.
I’ve been doing well on this front. I’ve been to some exhibitions and seen some nice architecture that I have to tell you about. We’ll correct that situation very soon.
If gaming counts as Art then I spent much of the weekend playing World of Warcraft. I am loving the Pandaria expansion, it looks great. Beautiful scenery really counts for a lot with me, I want to feel like I’ve stepped in to a painting.
I’d forgotten we even had this category, how remiss of me. I am currently listening to the audio book of Can You Forgive Her? by epic 19th century novelist Anthony Trollope. I love his novels, so funny and full of gossip and human interest stories.
Meh. I scored one point for going to class. I really need to do some homework. Really need to.
I should mix some. I was thrilled when I was at a US airport recently and found that the duty free shop stocked Jack Daniels Honey Liqueur, which is unavailable in the UK.
Shocking progress. I went to about six classes in one week and then did not return. The state of my so called exercise regime is a disgrace.
Surprisingly I did take some action here recently and need to talk to my mortgage lender again as the next step. I also need to start budgeting like a serious grown up. I am going to start taking an interest in personal finance blogs, there might be a Flylady equivalent.
Not doing too badly. Seeing my sister. There’s a gift that I need to finish making for her, I need to block out some time to do that. Dates do not count as friends, ha ha.
I saw my dentist again recently and now my lower jaw has three new teeth screwed in nice and tight. So 1 Health point for that appointment. It was at 8.15 in the morning on a Saturday which is a killer if you were out all night and have not slept. Anyway. My dentist is not all that happy with me at the moment because I am not flossing all that religiously and I need to get back on it without delay. Gloria. I am talking to you.
Miscellaneous (code for ‘Dating’)
My goodness. I have really made a big effort lately to cut it out and stay at home more (this has merely resulted in a lot of Warcraft being played, to my dismay). Anyway, despite my cutting back I have still managed to go out once or twice and allow a couple of upcoming dates to appear in diary. News in brief as follows.
- Blondie. This is our handsome, successful entrepreneur. He seems busy (I am okay with this, I am too). At first I thought he wasn’t into me but it seems like he is still interested so we are discussing dates and venues for a second date. I do like it when someone makes it to a second date.
- I went on a first date with a guy who we will call Action Man. He is a very dynamic individual. Very sporty. It was a very well organised date. He chose a restaurant and booked a table there instead of meeting up and then vaguely going ‘I wonder if there are any pubs around’ which is what most people do. He’s quite talkative. Very strong personality. At the end of the night he kissed me with purpose. He’s just arrived on the internet dating scene. This date was a couple of days ago and we haven’t texted or messaged each other yet. I am sort of waiting to see what happens. He wasn’t in the least bit intimidated by me and this is quite rare. He was very confident. We’ll see. He might have dated several other people by now.
Other than that, I have one or two first dates lined up, as always. But my diary is less full than usual, which is a good thing.
I am looking for it. I really could do with dropping ten pounds if I am going to date sporty guys.
Reclaiming The Home
It’s not in awful shape. I scored 1 Housework point today.
You know why Salad gets its own category? Because that is what you are supposed to eat. Not Pot Noodles and the occasional onion bagel. Nil points.
Nil points because I fail to set aside time for it. I could do everything I want to do if I planned my time better. I am going to start having set nights for doing things.
Three points, must try harder.
