It’s a wrap

by Patricia Parker on December 4, 2009

Dear Readers,
First of all, let’s talk about the elephant in the room…Why haven’t I been blogging since September? I’d like to say I was kayaking on the Amazon or Trekking across the Arctic…Sadly, no great adventures. I was tending my family and my mind.

Second, let’s talk about the goals I wrote about in July:

1. I walk at least 5 km everyday. I haven’t hopped on the shuttle across campus once. I feel better and I haven’t had a sniffle (I’m not smug about that, oh universal fates, just noting)

2. I have altered my cooking habits and snuck healthier foods into my children’s lunch sacks.

3. I’ve lost some weight and reduced one pant size. Not gynormous accomplishments, but a nice serendipity.

4. I haven’t started training for a triathlon, as was my secret goal….I think I will have to wait til my children are grown.

Rather than focus on what I haven’t done, lets focus on what I did do…Because I had more zip after 4pm, I enrolled in an evening class. The main assignment was to write a children’s book. Check that off the “to do” as complete. I am meeting with the publisher who taught the course this month to edit the little book and get it to a press somewhere.

I’ve spent time celebrating holidays, growing with my children and getting ready for Christmas.

We promised you “real life” when we started, and I like to think it was real life that we delivered. Thanks for joining in!

Til next time
