#1 I shamelessly recycled a gift last week. It was something that was given to me with zero thought and so I palmed it off on someone who has rarely displayed a shred of thoughtfulness. It felt good.
#2 The gift was (for some odd reason) appreciated so I feel like I decluttered and did a good deed at the same time. That is called multitasking.
#3 I’m getting too old to pretend “lets catch up sometime – I haven’t seen you in months/years” dinners are enjoyable. I was chatting to a work friend about this today. We agreed that sometimes there are people who feel it necessary to catch up with those they rarely see and it is almost like they need to tick off a task on a to-do list.
- Meeting at 9:00am – DONE
- Phone for hairdresser appointment – DONE
- Meet up with people not seen in a year – E-MAIL SENT!
- Follow up repeatedly – DONE!
At 35 I know who my real friends are and am extremely grateful for them. They know how I felt after I lost my Gran a year and half ago and how stressful this year has been with my Mom in and out of hospital. They offered kind words, thoughtful messages and knew what I was going through. So those are the friends I feel that I should be making time for.
#4 Unless it is a cooking show like My Kitchen Rules or Masterchef I don’t watch much reality TV these days.
#5 I’ve been eating loads of sushi lately. I find it so convenient to get a platter after work after a long day. And no cooking with few dishes to wash is a win-win!
#6 I’ve had the is-it-Friday-yet feeling since Monday morning. And I’m struggling to understand how today is only Wednesday.
#7 I’ve officially given up on hoping my hair is going to grow. I’ve never had it grow so slowly. EVER.
#8 I can see myself in the future as an elderly person with this same bob I’m wearing now. “Oh this” I will say “this is the haircut I had in October 2017”.
#9 I keep laughing out loud at random parts of old episodes of “Life in Pieces”. I want to be like Jen when I grow up.
#10 I’m wondering if tonight is for gym or for relaxing on the couch with a glass of wine. A case of head vs heart!
