Hello my name is Mrs. L and I am addicted to linky parties. No really! Every time one pops up it makes me want to drop everything and respond. But usually I pin the tab and hope that one day I will have the time and energy to write a post. Sometimes it takes me a long time. So bear with me. (Hubby is working on developing a new app and so I have more time to blog than normal. I could not be happier. :D )
Jennifer at Herding Kats in Kindergarten posted this linky party ages ago. I really really wanted to go to her party! (And I am not a typical party animal.) If you have ever read her blog you'd know why. She is fun, down to earth, and a kindred spirit. I think if we ever did meet in real life I might just have to be her new best friend. (I don't think she has much of a choice in the matter.)
1. Find out if I am having a boy or a girl!
Which will lead to freaking out of my mind and reading as many books about babies and parenting that I can get my hands on. What do you think? Boy or Girl? I was blessed with light morning sickness, a recent interest in all things sweet, and some amazing hormone swings. (One time I might have to tell you about that laughing/crying cycle. It was a lot of fun. Let me just tell you that.)
2. Move from Utah to sunny California
I still need to get my hands on some boxes, but I feel like I am making great progress at decluttering. (If you too are struggling with clutter or moving, please see my previous post about freecycle. The best way to get rid of stuff you don't want instead of throwing it away.) I still have a week or so to throw everything together and make it work. I'm starting to feel the pressure.
3. Finish my blog redesign
Erin from Creating and Designing has been so patient with me. I am one of the most indecisive people ever. But I hope to have it all done soon. Keep your eyes peeled. (Well not really, because one that sounds like it hurts and two it might take a while and you will need to blink.)
4. Travel back to Japan
I will be abandoning you for two weeks. I know I am terrible. But I am going back to visit the places I lived four years ago. I can't believe it has been so long. I will try and make it up to you when I get back. (If you are jealous, just imagine all the google reading and blog stalking I will have to do when I get back. >.< And I promise to try to take some good pictures so you can live vicariously through me.)
5. Catch up on all my reading!
I made a goal to read 100 books this year. Right now I am at 11. I know. Kind of failing. But don't worry I have a plan. I even have a small list of some of the books I will be reading. I'll explain it all soon. (Like in the next two days if I can manage the time.)
6. Finish 1/2 my Teaching Blog Traffic School Lessons
I started the Teaching Blog Traffic School over Spring Break. I loved it, but I still have a lot of lessons and homework to get through. My goal is to be more than halfway done before the end of the summer.
7. Start and establish my mommy blog
I am going to a be a mom. I know. I still can't believe it myself. It's going to be an incredible journey and I would love if you joined me on the bumpy ride. (More details to follow soon!)
8. Establish my products
I plan to create at least two products and update two of my older ones (Tacky the Penguin and Management Mania 1)
9. Spend quality time with family
Calling, writing, visiting, and attending a reunion. I have over 50 cousins which makes it hard to make sure I reach everyone. I also need a new family photo because the last one I have is from my wedding.
I know the baby is going to be keeping me up and zapping all my strength so I am taking this summer to pamper myself. Resting and lounging whenever I get the chance and storing up energy for this winter.
What are your plans for this summer? You know you want to stop and check out the party.
