First ... yes, it's been a long time since I posted. Second ... no, I'm not going to offer any reasons/excuses!
That being said ... I had the day off today and thought it would be a great opportunity to wrap up this round of DayZero (which ended for me last weekend). In going through my goal list, I realized that I had finished a few that I never got around to blogging about. I also found (and expected) that I completed less from my list this time around than the first time. This was not from lack of interest on my part - rather outside demands on my time over the last three years keeping me busy.
So, what did I enjoy from this round? I found that wine tasting parties (#12) can be lots of fun and are a lot less work for the hostess than the normal parties that I throw. I loved seeing new spots in Minnesota (#31); it was a great reminder that you don't have to go so terribly far to get the experience of traveling. Though it was a goal that I didn't complete, writing down the items that make me happy (#51) was an enlightening experience - I found that it is definitely simple moments that bring me joy. Writing murder mystery party scripts (#36) is definitely something that I will continue to do for big life moments. I was actually sad to finish Eowyn's Challenge (#66) since it was the best exercise motivation tool that I've found yet! And making pie (#87) was a good experience for me too since I had sort of convinced myself that was a type of baked good that was just not for me and now I've reconsidered - particularly concerning the apple hand pies!
There were about 20 goals where I had made some progress but didn't get close enough to the end to put in a last push and finish. And, a lot of goals on this round that I didn't start. Over the next few weeks, I'll be making my charitable contributions and deciding on the list for Round Three. Despite my lack of attention recently, I plan to make a fresh start on a new list somewhere in the end of April. I have a friend in town who just started on a DayZero list of her own, so I'm hoping that some of our items overlap, and we can have adventures together!
