Goodbye Twenties

Being the crazy person that I am, I decided on the first day of September at 9:45 pm that I should write a post every day this month.  Well, September 1st, 2nd AND 3rd have come and gone, and no blog post.

So hello Day One :)

I am the queen of procrastination.  Why do today what can be done tomorrow?  All my fellow procrastinators will agree.....eventually....when you absolutely have to.  And that's ok.  Keep being you.

I said that to say that I must have a deadline.  And a goal.  And a list.  Sweet baby J, I adore lists.  Hopefully this month long deadline will motivate me to write more, even if I've done absolutely nothing of interest that day (which is most days).

So this is my last month in my twenties.  And I'm actually okay with it.  I'm kind of excited to see what my thirties brings.  Hopefully, it will begin with adopting our future kids, unless DHR continues to take their sweet time and I lose my Publix attitude and turn into Wal-Mart.  For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, go grocery shopping at Publix.  The parking lot is calm and relatively quiet.  The store is clean, the employees are smiling and helpful.  The shoppers are fully clothed, and rarely are there issues with people being rude or getting in your way.  Publix makes you want to be a better human being.

Now go shop at Wal-Mart.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Hell.  Wal-Mart will be the origin of the anti-christ, the apocalypse, where zombies are born and probably where the vortex came from in the movie Poltergeist. Wal-Mart makes me want to hunch over my buggy, white knuckling the handle all while snearing, "My preciousssssss", to anyone who gets too close to my cart.  That's the Lauren that DHR is going to get if we don't get moving along in the next year. Beware.

I'm also hoping that my thirties brings some clarity to what I want to do with my life.  I have SO many dreams, so many lives that I want to lead, and I can't quite nail down what it is that I actually want to do.  Maybe I need a vision quest.  Or Yoda.

Anywho, here's to my twenties.  You've seen my college graduation, marriage, moving twice, new jobs, the decision to adopt, the arrival of our fur babies, and new friends. It's been real twenties, but I'm ready for the next decade.  Deuces.
