Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

Oh dear! I just realised that I didn't post anything here yesterday!

That must be why I couldn't get to sleep until almost 2am - I just couldn't relax, even with meditation and my sleeping app!! It must have been my subconscious trying to tell me that I hadn't done the blog lol.

We had an interesting day yesterday, when a stranger walked through the door asking what we were doing. She then told us that she was a qualified trainer and was looking for a space to rent for some training that she wanted to do for people recovering from mental health issues. THAT was an interesting turn of events! We exchanged information and will make contact again in a few weeks after we've settled in.

Adoring Husband and The Fisher King got a LOT done on the new room that we've added, while The Motivator is enjoying having her own space to get work done uninterrupted - well, uninterrupted, until 'I' interrupted her haha.

This morning, Adoring Husband and I disassembled my big table and took it to the shop, along with my desk, wall unit, chest of drawers, all the coloured framed drawers on wheels and lots of other bits and pieces, including my iMac.

We put together my new yellow office chair and did a bit more on the room, with me serving as tradies assistant again. We still have LOADS to do, including painting walls and re-covering office chairs - the list seems to be endless!

To make matters worse, I have paid for a business/money boot camp/course that I need to do for the next 6 weeks on top of all this! It's only held once a year, so I couldn't put it off until next year ... I need to do it now to make sure we can hit the ground running and be as successful as possible!

I am crazy I know. Or I will be at the end of all this haha.

Anyway, it's a slow process, but we can see progress and it's still fun and challenging and an adventure worth experiencing. It's especially great to be doing it with AH and The Motivator.

My brain feels like it might explode with everything that's swimming around in there at the moment, so I need to go get everything down on paper right now.

Tomorrow is a big day in The Bay with lots of errands to run and business to follow up. I'm off to make a list and gather everything I need so that I'm not rushing around tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile, I have discovered the three women whom I most admire are also doing this course that I'm in. Well, one of them is running it and the other two are participating. This makes me VERY excited because I'll get to interact with them forever more and gain some great insights from them.

They are successful authors and entrepreneurs already ... but as they say ... you NEVER stop learning and discovering. The world of business and technology is always changing and women are the new game changers!  

They already own and operate million dollar businesses and will have advice to share and expertise to pass on. The group involved is amazing and supportive and happy and at varying stages of success in their own business. I'm excited for it to start tomorrow morning!

Now I'm very busy and important, so I'm off!

Nite all.
