How does that song go?
"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to-CRRyy if I want to....
YOU would cry to if it happened to youuuuu"
SOOO true! You would cry too if you were turning....
YEP the BIG 38 today! WOW- where did it go? I certainly didn't realize how quickly it was going by.
One day I was 15 and the next WHAMO 38. I'd like to say i'm soooo much wiser and worldly now, but that would just be a lie! But unlike 15 I am at least aware that there is a NEED to be wiser and worldly. ;) So in anticipation of today I sat everyone down in the Treasures household yesterday and asked them to write down some goals.
Yes even the 8 year old (whom I momentarily lost my mind and described her as my 9 year old in a previous post- sorry!)
Anyhow everyone was to list 3 short term goals and 1 or 2 ways they planned on achieving them as well as 2 long term goals. They also needed to pick one thing they had never done or tried before that they would now be willing to give a whirl.
I also decided that we would be placing the LIFE size map of the United States that was no longer needed at our office (more on that later) and pin it to the wall in our game room.
Since we are not in a position to be "World" travelers at the present time I decided to keep it a little closer to home ;)
I informed them that we will be picking a new state each month and learning all there is about that state. Including it's tourist attractions.
This way when the money tree outback FINALLY blooms we will know exactly which state we want to hit first.
After we hit all 50 or is it 52 states? (Told you not wiser, just older HA!)we can start working on other countries. This will also give us time for the money tree to be in FULL bloom by that point.
Anyhow the REAL goal here is to not wake up one morning and say "WOW I'm 48-58-68 Where did it go?" I'll have a wall full of places and mind full of knowledge! ;)
ANYTHING to keep me from obsessing over the new 38 year old birthday wrinkle I just found on my forehead!
