Ten on Tuesday: 10 Things I’ve Been Putting Off

It’s time for .

  1. Organising Erin’s stuff – The little girl has accumulated loads of stuff over the months and I have yet to sort them all out into these categories: to put away in boxes (for future use [?]), to give away, and to use ASAP.
  2. Read my books – I still have tons of books to read. I just can’t seem to find the time to read these days. 😦
  3. Clean! – I’m such a neat freak so it bothers me a lot when things are a mess. As much as I would want to partake in the cleaning duties in our home, sadly these days, most of them are delegated to J.
  4. Do some gardening – Before Erin was born, J and I regularly did some gardening on weekends. He was (still is) in charge of weeding while I trimmed the bushes and trees. We find the activity therapeutic.
  5. Going home to Manila – Understandably, with Erin being so young, we won’t be able to come home to Manila for the holidays. We’re postponing our trip to next year, after she turns a year older.
  6. Pamper myself at a salon or spa – I’m doing this when we get to Manila. I think I just sooooo deserve it. I’m getting the works! 😛
  7. Go shopping alone – I’m saving up for this one. I can’t wait to shop with my lone self. It’s been awhile. I think I can maximize this one when we’re in Manila.
  8. Sleep at least 8 hours – This, of course, is unintentional and is totally dependent on Erin.
  9. Taking my driver’s examination – I still don’t have my learner’s license. I actually flunked the exam when I took it last year and was so traumatized (it ain’t easy, plus it’s so expensive!) by it that I have not tried to take it again. I know I need to seriously put in more effort when I review for the test so that I can drive our car if the need arises.
  10. Get fully accredited in my profession – I still need to complete the second part of the board’s assessment which requires me to go on supervised work. It’ll take me six months to complete it if I work fulltime. It’s a no-can-do situation right now because I have to take care Erin first.

Wow, I didn’t realise there’s so much that I’ve been putting off. Until Erin’s grown up a bit, I think I won’t be crossing out much from this list any time soon.

How about you? What is on your list?

    Jean: Medyo mahirap talaga exam nila because there are questions na hinde ka pwedeng magkamali. In my case, laging wrong answer ako in those types of Q’s! 😦 Sabi ng administrator dun, I should concentrate more on intersections and ‘right’ of way…. Magreresign ka na?! When?
