I am pre-empting my intended journal entry for tonight for one much more exciting. Tonight I watched “Giuliana & Bill” on the Style Network. I love them. She’s Italian; he’s from Chicago, what’s not to love? They’re taking a year off from trying to get pregnant - to have what they are calling “The Year of Fun”. Sheesh. Sure sounds better than my 12 month plan. My year is a lot of work with fun fit into the corners of the schedule. The other way around sure sounds better.
Genius light bulb moment! (I don't have a photo of a light bulb, but I do have this stunning Ikea lamp) After my 12 month plan is over I will have my own Year of Fun. It will start where the 12MP ends – on my family’s European 50th birthday celebration/vacation. This is a fabulous idea! No matter where I live or where I am in my journey – it will be my very own Year of Fun. Thanks Giuliana and Bill, I think you've started something great.
I will now begin taking suggestions for what should be included in my Year of Fun. These are just a few of the words that are not allowed in your suggestions: scrub, save, organize, diet, budget, landscaping, laundry, stress, and debt ceiling – and there are many more. Any and all serious suggestions and offers are welcome. Have your people call my people.
