I have an admission. I have made zero progress on The List. In fact, I didn’t even participate in Unplugged Monday this week. I was having a bad day and I wanted to watch a movie, so I did. I’m not proud, but at least I’m a little less cranky.
I’m feeling unmotivated and scared to work on The List. I have one item lined up (listen to live music with my kids—I’m going to see the Indigo Girls with them, my husband and some friends) but the rest? I’m a little scared. I want to do these things, but I need a little push. I need your help.
I also want to add an item I accidentally left out. Getting my ears pierced. Not for a second time, not in the cartilage, just the regular ol’ ear piercing. Yes, I am extremely dorky, thank you for noticing. But a needle through my ear? Scary. So scary that it needs to go on The List.
With that said, I hope you’ll participate in a little poll. You’ll need to visit and like the MAEVE Facebook Page to cast your vote.
What should I do on my next Unplugged evening?
-Get my ears pierced
-Give five strangers compliments on the street
-Start sewing my own dress
-Take photos of ten strangers and post them to the web
Thanks for your help! I promise to do whatever the majority rule dictates. MAEVE is a democracy, right?
