Why wonder - just ask ...

Over on Get It Scrapped! Tami is asking us five W's for 2010.

Who is one person you want to see this year, or spend more time with?

This is easy - I've been wanting to visit with my friend Diane who lives in the country for a while now. We usually spend a few days each year together but missed out last year so it is high on my priority list for this one.

What is one thing you would like to do?

I'm actually doing it in April - going to an overseas scrap retreat. I'd like to do more than one but can't see the budget stretching quite that far.

Where is one place you'd like to go?

The overseas retreat is in New Zealand so that might count but I'd also like to spend some quality time with the rest of the family later in the year - Tasmania perhaps.

Why is this year going to be different than others?

Big, big year for us. Daughter completes high school this year so lots of exams, lots of study, a school formal, many 18th birthdays, MAD trip to Fiji, waiting on exam results, open university days, applications etc etc. Stress + year for her (and us)!

Son is in final year of primary school so lots of "end of" things for him as he transitions from being top of the primary to bottom of the high school. He has a formal to attend and a great many hurdles to overcome this year; he is so not ready for high school, seems only yesterday I took him to Kindergarten.

When the year is over what is the one thing you want to be able to say you did?

Survived it - it's going to be a big stress filled year (already started).

For the chatty girls.. answer this bonus question:

How are you making time for you this year?

I learnt years ago the importance of "me" time - I enjoy attending crops monthly and several weekend retreats a year, having lunch every now and again with friends, going to movies sometimes, dining out with my husband when we can. I try to stress less over the little things and work on things that matter in the longer term.
