You guys, I am on fire with my life list. Serious fire. Blow me out. No, don’t, because I like it hot.
That wasn’t supposed to sound quite the way that it sounded.
Anyway, I’ve been life listing this week, and you will be so proud of what I accomplished:
I have no photographic evidence of #2, but you’ll have to trust me on this one. I’m Queen of splits in this house. And it turns out, it’s not super hard. A lot of stretching with maybe a bit of wine and you’re pretty much a gymnast. Check indeed.
Mary from the grocery store (Hi, Mary!) is now the proud owner of a shiny, new life list. We struck up a conversation about olive oil and pretty soon we were exchanging life-long goals and childhood dreams. Mary wants to ride a horse (go get ’em, Mary!) and shoot a gun. Probably not at the same time. I hope.
I am completely and totally enrolled in an online drawing class that starts in January (join me! Do it!). After reading Carla’s top five reasons to take her Silly class, I knew it would be the perfect spot for me. Plus? Online. Meaning pajamas. Bonus. If you’d like to join and learn to draw (while filling out worksheets, which I LOVE), you can sign up here. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes when I finish!
I joined a gym (don’t make fun) this week because I like cheese and am pushing 30. Apparently, that’s a bit of a bad combo for my metabolism. And Monday, I walked like eight miles b/c I was engrossed in a book and didn’t notice. Tuesday, I walked two miles. And today? Today, I ran. I ran like the wind (on a non-windy day, I suppose) for an entire mile. Without stopping. I promise. It took me 14 minutes, so I suppose that’s more like jogging, but pish posh. I did it. And I am Woman. Hear me super Roar.
Fellow life listers — get on it. You’ve got to catch me (especially now that I can run fast. Sort of.)!
