half way there, woah, livin’ on a prayer

Hello, August. Just a quick check-in – How is everyone’s summer going?

Things are moving along nicely with my 100 Days of SummerLet’s Do it list but, it has not totally been smooth sailing (I have yet to go sailing, by the way).Here’s a quick 10-things update:

  1. All of my on-going items are well on track (17, 36, 71, 78, 79, 91)
  2. I got a not completed in 2016/2017 item done! (4)
  3. Seeking recommendations for a silk blouse that’s nice and not too expensive (16)
  4. Seeking someone with a sailboat (95). There’s a good chance the person with the sailboat also has excellent taste in silk blouses, so it’s likely a win-win for me.
  5. I did start designing my 2019 calendars but my hard drive crashed so now I need to restart (7) womp, womp
  6. The weather has been amazing. Yay!
  7. As are my family and friends who’ve been helping me get things checked off the list
  8. Marathon training is a pain in the butt for me because I actually pulled a butt muscle (57)
  9. 50/100 are completed!
  10. You can follow along on my Instagram (#100daysofsummer)

Good luck and …

it’s not over yet!

How’s everyone’s summer so far?

It occurred to me that I haven’t had a paid holiday or paid vacation day since 2007… Hello 10-year itch! Freelance life has been busy, and I am very grateful but I’d rather be at the beach.

But friends, this is not a rant, rather a plea. Summer is almost over and I only have sixty out of 100 items checked off my 100 days of summer list.
