Howdy neighbor

Today is June 1st and I have started a major countdown. Actually the countdown has been ongoing in the back of my brain since the beginning of the year, but today it’s serious. My birthday is coming up (so’s my anniversary). Now for the past 49 years it’s never bothered me that I’m having a birthday. I’ve never been one to care about telling anyone my age, and actually I still don’t mind, but this year my birthday is actually scaring me. I think I’m about to have my mid-life crisis!! πŸ˜†

To celebrate this momenteous occasion, I’ve decided to keep with the BIG number theme. Between today (not my birthday) and my birthday in 2010, I’m going to accomplish 50 things. I’ll be posting that list in a few days.

I’ll be upfront now and state that two of those things involve something I’ve let go of over the past 6+ months. I’m going to attempt to post to my blog at least weekly and I’m going to be getting back in contact with two very dear women I’ve neglected horribly over the past 8 months. You two know who you are πŸ™‚

Things are going okay with Kahuna and I. His race season started out with a bang and he has two races done fo this year. Miss Harley Quinn attended the second race with us and was quite the hit with the men. She’s a definite hunk magnet πŸ™‚

I found out last Thursday that my hours were going to be cut at work and I’m determined to look at it as a good thing. When I was originally hired 14 months ago it was for 30 hours a week. The paralegal I work with has just now been released to return to work for 6 hours a day so I’m ratcheting back to 30 hours a week starting today. I’m planning on taking major advantage of it….I went to the gym, straight from work today. I’m thrilled to death that my plantar faciatis is completely gone. I had it for 18 months!!!! Anyway for the past two weeks I’ve managed to drop 5 pounds just cutting back on some bad eating habits I’d picked up. I’m actually looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish adding in the exercise. Kahuna and I have hit the weights a couple of times of the past couple of weeks, but now I’m going to crank that up as well. I hope someone is still reading my blog and will volunteer to help keep me honest and keep posting.

  3. Terri – I still read your blog! Its great to see a post from you. I’ll try to keep you motivated – I’m desperately trying to lose some weight, and get back in shape, too. Good luck with your goals!

  4. I’ve been thinking the same thing. For the same reason.
    Nice being born in a zero year, isn’t it?

    My sister, for her 50th, had a very short list. But it was kind of intensive.

    1) get a tattoo
    2) get her motorcycle license
    3) go for a hot air balloon ride

    The tattoo has turned into a couple of tattoos.
    She got her license and a motorcycle of her own.
    And she did balloon thing regardless of her fear of heights – and enjoyed it tremendously.

    I’ll be checking back to see the list!

  5. It’s really good to hear from you! I’ve been missed. πŸ™‚
