1 Year houseaversary...

Yeah all right, houseaversary is NOT a word lol, but tomorrow is our first anniversary of living in our first house (technically second, though the first did not leave much of an impression). Yes, a year ago today I was running around like a mad woman trying to get all our last possessions into random boxes. Luckily I had plenty of help from all the family. This also means we have been living in Pmb for a year now! I can't believe time flew past like this! And it is really feeling like home now.

We do live in a nice place, a 2 bedroom, one bathroom town house?? I think it's a town house. There are about 25 units in the complex, and we are far from the gate so I really feel safe here. Also we have a garden with our own washing line so I don't have to share with anyone! Everything here is green and pretty, we are surrounded my mountains and the neighbours are friendly. The only problem is that I don't have the freedom of changing the place we live in, we rent. If I could paint the house... lol, it would be really pretty... :) I don't think I would ever be able to live in a single house on a single yard, it just feels so secure in a complex surrounded by other people. Now I just need to find a place where I can have a dog as well..

I decided this morning that my priorities is going to change from now on. I had a migraine again and I have a suspicion it was stress related. I tend to make a big deal of the smallest of things and frankly I am tired of how it affects me. I don't sleep well, I don't feel as well as I should so something has to give. Thus, my priorities are now:
1. Get the job at the museum (My husband's almost old job :)), and actually look forward to it. I will be working right next to my husband after all. :)
2. Work there for at least 2 or 3 years to save money to buy a nice 3 bedroom home with garden and the privilege of having a dog (and spend on nice things for myself.. hmmm... shopping at other clothes shops than Mr Price.. lol)
3. Buy a lot of pregnancy magazines so I am really prepared for a baby in 2 or 3 years time. I would love to have a baby before I am 30, and just realized I am only 25. So I have a while to go! Yay for positive thinking.
4. Think positive! hehe and get fit and feel better about my body, and eat healthier.. at least one chocolate a week :D
5. Try to keep up with my new priorities... I will really try hard.
6. Oh yeah, finish the novel... :\

And here is another Lolpic for me to enjoy.. and for you! Hope I bring a smile to your face! :)

Hi 'lil sis!
Also can't believe it's almost a year. I'm dreaming with you, and I'm also praying for you both... for wisdom, new friends, the new jobs, a nice "housie" and when the timing is right... a little pink foot who I can play with and spoil!! So long you know that I'll then visit more and more, and that you maybe then not be the only reason my visits :-))
Lov' ya
