I forgot what day it was for a second.
And I feel pretty lucky that I can do that.
I am under no illusions that my life is so very different from the lives of most 45 year-old women. It is exceptional and beautiful, and while I have worked hard to make it just so; to position myself in this way, I also know I am lucky. I benefit from an extremely supportive husband and am grateful to have a partnership with him in which I can pursue my ambitions and afford to make mistakes along the way.
Of course, I appreciate your support as well.
All of this is to say that I am sitting at my mom’s house just north of Atlanta, across from my husband, and next to my mother, enjoying watching the snow fall and accumulate on the trees and grass without much of a care in the world. We won’t be stuck here, but if we were, it wouldn’t be the end of the world.
I haven’t worked much this week because I’ve enjoyed time with my family. First my dad and stepmom in Florida, and now my mom. I am preparing answers to some of your questions from the AMA, and I thought I might have those ready to post today, but I won’t. Sorry. This week, when faced with a choice to write/work, or bake bread with my mom, or walk around our favorite outdoor shopping center with my dad, I chose family. I hope you understand.
I did update my wardrobe audit, which I hadn’t touched since February. You may see it here (google docs), but when I left it in February, I had 198 total items in my wardrobe, including shoes, bags, and things I wear exclusively for Pure Barre and at home. Now, I have 204 total items. When I get home, I’m going to remove probably 15-20 t-shirts, etc., that I have been wearing only at home the last few years and mark them for donation. I just haven’t wanted to get rid of them, because they’re still wearable, but big and worn.
Anyway, I’ll write more about that, and provide answers to some of your other questions next week.
In the meantime, please enjoy your weekend 🙂
