So, I tend to come up with some grand schemes, but lack the follow through needed to see them through to fruition. I was having one of those moments when I made my Christmas list this year. And Santa decided to throw down the gauntlet.
Grand Scheme #1:
I am totally not a crafty person. I want to be, and I try to be, but somehow it is just not in my skill set. When Miss H was a baby, all I wanted to do was to be able to make pretty little bows for her instead of paying a fortune for them. So I
spent a fortune purchased ribbon, a glue gun, and hair clips at the local craft store. And then I remembered that when they taught bow making in high school, I missed that day. I cannot tie a bow to save my life.
Anywho, I digress.
While pregnant with Baby B, I got this craving to learn how to sew. I would walk around the fabric store for hours just dreaming of all the things I could make if I could sew. I even took a sewing class.
Did I mention I don't own a sewing machine?
Not anymore, my friends! Santa decided to grant my wish and gifted me with a seriously awesome sewing machine. And I am deathly afraid to touch it. But, I will overcome this fear and break it out of the box....next week!
Grand Scheme #2:
Also while pregnant with Baby B, I was unable to exercise as much as I was accustomed. And thus, I began to crave any form of exercise, especially running for some reason. So I got it in my head that when the baby was born and ready to ride in the stroller I would "take up running."
Did I mention that I HATE running?
What was I thinking? Why oh why did I ask Santa for that heart rate monitor watch doo-hicky? Because there it was. Wrapped in shiny paper under my Christmas tree.
There it is folks; Santa called my bluff and now it's my turn to show him that I really do want and can meet these goals of mine.
Now, I'm off to sign up for more sewing classes and download the Couch to 5K program. Look out!!
