I’ve been struggling on what to write to you guys and I know that if I stop blogging now that I won’t return and continue this new venture. Recently not alot has been going on in my life. I’ve dropped Zeke off at school, stayed home nursing my sick husband and looking after our 3 year old Dimitri. Life is pretty relaxed.
BUT! I am planning a holiday with my husband to Melbourne, AUS, in two weeks for the annual Penny Arcade Expo. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is a gaming convention. My husband is very invested in playing League of Legends. I actually helped him organise a viewing party for their World Championship. This involved talking to many people, and seeing how many would be interested in sponsoring the event so that we can give away prizes. Luckily Riot (League of Legends creators) have supplied us with a stash of ‘swag’ which means we will have cute stuff to give away!
Come to think of it, I’ve actually got a bit to say on how I’ve been preparing for my trip away with my husband. As you know, money is a big issue in our house. On one income it seems like any time we move on with a bill, another one comes to replace it. We’ve been budgeting hard to make sure that we had enough money for this trip, including selling our spare TV and other stuff that we haven’t used in awhile. I’ve made sure to manage our time down there as I want to go and visit some friends, visit the University about starting next summer, seeing what course they offer and of course looking at Melbourne’s world class shopping centre in Chadstone. This trip included planning a sitter for the children, planning meals while down there, planning money for knick knacks if we buy anything, making sure that we had a suitcase big enough for both of our clothes for 3 days and planning for any sudden weather changes. Lots of planning!
Planning is my life, it is what I want to do as a career! I want to become a professional planner, planning people’s lives for them and making sure that they are efficient at managing their time. Maybe even becoming a teacher, to teach others everything that I’ve been learning!
