March 2017 turns out to have been a big family month for me. My mother was ill, and I flew cross-country as you do when it seems like the end is near.
Having seen my first picture of my mother’s mother, I can see that we three are the same person. No wonder Mum and I are screwed up!
|I took my time with my weigh in because I was afraid I had put on a lot of weight (judging by the fit of my clothes). Not as bad as I feared, but if you check my tracking, I should have lost a lot more. It’s frustrating. I need to recommit.|
No luck with yoga or massages yet.
Got my teeth cleaned, and thought about First Aid for old injuries.
I still feel quite tired from my trip.
|Beauty: presence||🙂||🙂||As it turns out, my hair appointments weren’t booked for the days I asked for them, so I’m looking a bit scraggly right now.|
Planned my 2017 Winter Wardrobe, and started buying. Also made a head start on Summer by getting some of my 2016 Summer Wardrobe shortlist on sale. One of my new dresses will make an excellent picnic outfit.
DB bought me some red ugg boots for my birthday, and I am ecstatic about them – so warm and snuggly. And so red!
|Beauty: home||🙂||😐||No progress this month.|
|Beauty: garden||😐||🙂||We bought a chainsaw in response to some storm damage, and have done some hard pruning. I think we both secretly want more damage so we can get it out again.|
|Friendship: friends||🙂||😐||Have been to lunches, but not made it to any meetings. Need to get onto this.|
Having seen my first picture of my mother’s mother, I was kind of haunted by her and all the other unknown generations.
Didn’t stop me suggesting a Stress Free Picnic Dinner Party.
|Friendship: creatures||🙂||🙂||I think my pretty boy has finally forgiven me. Both dogs are very friendly since I got home.|
Lots of kookaburras around lately. They have early morning singing duels with the Magpies – that’s what living on the City fringe is all about.
|Friendship: contribution||🙂||🙂||My chosen non-profit removed the “donate now” button from its website!!!|
I found a new one and my donations are up to date.
|Pleasure: adventure||😐||😐||No progress on this, unless you count dashing to Perth (as I do) which is so different to what I remember that it was kind of like overseas.|
I commend the City on its modern public transport grid.
And I offered suggestions on planning for emergency trips.
|Pleasure: recharge||🙂||🙂||Doing well.|
Book reading on track. They seem to be bigger and fatter than I remember. But then again, I don’t spend two hours a day commuting nowadays.
|Wisdom: growth||😐||😉||Listened to many many podcasts.|
I’m counting Perth as culturally significant, though I didn’t get to see as many sites as I would have liked.
|Wealth: Business Development||😐||😐||No progress.|
|Wealth: income||😐||😐||February royalties were 3.17% of target, making total 2017 royalties 0.72% of target to date.|
Haven’t done anything about my CV, but I’ve had a few editing jobs, so I feel virtuous about that.
According to the Productivity Journal, March 2017 was a disaster (and I need to take more time to write legibly – good luck future biographer). There were fallen tree branches to clear up. Plus my mother going in and out of the hospital, many tortured hours on the phone trying to find out what was going on and many more trying to decide if and when to fly over. And then trying to recover.
