Bye bye single digit, hello double
18 weeks 3 days
Yes, we are now saying farewell to the single digit years and thank god you are finally here hello to 2010.
When I was 16 I wrote a list of things I wanted to achieve and deadlines for when they had to be completed.
On the list are items that I have achieved (finished my Bac, learned French, worked for the CBC, lived in 4 out of the 10 Canadian Provinces, including that cute little french province, got married to an amazing man, owned a house – well we are on our third house so I sorta over achieved in that category).
And those that I have not finished, but still have time.
Including having 2 children. I wanted 2 children before I was 32, so I needed these kids before October 2010. AND g-d willing, knock on wood and do every kind of superstitious act possible, this should happen in May.
The only other major item on my list is to complete my Masters (I gave myself till I was 35), there’s still time. And complete my Phd (I gave myself till I was 40, very reasonable me thinks). Now, I just need to figure out what I should actually study…
And I am happy to report that the only item on my list where I missed my deadline was visiting Europe before I turned 30. And, that’s not such a big deal, so what I have nothing to say when people discuss the merits of various European destinations.
I am okay with it, I choose fertility treatments over vacations. And I will never regret that.
