Five years and one day ago, I started this blog. Five days ago I planned on putting together a fun post which included a possible contest. Where did those days go?!!?
When I started this blog, I had one child that just finished up 1st grade and a 4 y/o. A busy mom to say the least, but there was no end of year craziness.
Fast forward 5 years and I now have a middle school man/child who will be having finals for the next three days (he will be taking his last final during the last hour of the last day of school. That is just WRONG!) I also have a 3rd grader who will be having an awards ceremony tomorrow and a party on Wed. Saturday will be a family dinner to celebrate a job well done.
So while I may be a day late, let's still have some fun with this anniversary. It's kind of a big one. Five years of blogging is pretty good!
It got me thinking; back in the day, during an interview, the person would ask you "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" So think back 5 years ago. Are you in a place that your 5 yr younger self would recognize? Or are you in a much better place than you could have imagined??
Myself? My life is NOT what I imagined. It's much more stressful, much more poorer and much more difficult than I expected. While life can be hard, I have friends and family that get me thru. I also appreciate the fact that while I STILL have no baseboards, I have a roof over my head. While I don't go out to eat as much as I'd like, I have food in my fridge to eat (my scale can attest to that!) While there are times I wish to be left alone, I have a husband who loves me and kids that are turning out really well. So for all it's hardships, this life isn't so bad after all.
Plus it helps that I have a wickedly dark sense of humor.
And I knit.
What more could a girl want??
UH HEM!!!! What am I, chopped liver??
By the way,do we have any chopped liver?? It's been an hour since breakfast and I could use a snack......
So what abt you? Tell me what you think in the comments, either what you thought 5 years ago or where you expect to be 5 years from now. I'll pick a random winner next Monday and depending on if you are a knitter, a quilter or a cross stitcher will depend on what goes out to you. And if you are none of the above, well we'll just have to get creative over here at Happy Acres!
