I've not been on blogsville for a while because we don't have our broadband connection at the new place sorted out yet. Hubby and I have been sharing one dial-up connection so we can't be online at the same time and the connection is so slow :-( So at the moment (due to nudges I've been getting), I am blogging illegally from the office. If they catch me, I'll come looking for you Vera.
It's been hectic the last few days. Our place is still a mess since we haven't fully unpacked our stuff. And going back to work right after the Christmas and New Year celebrations just dampened my mood. I'm so jealous of my sister who is enjoying herself on holiday in Lagos right now. And 'Lagos'buki and the rest of them are not making it better at all... Meanwhile I'm stuck at work with a mild cold. Aaaaargh! Anyhow, I'm glad for one thing - my commute is easier now and the first working week of 2007 is over already!
I haven't made any New Year Resolutions this year. I can't be bothered to make promises to myself in January, only to break them in February and feel guilty. I tend to make changes in my life as and when required, not really because it's a new year. But I know people who have made new-year-resolutions and kept them. I guess the new year is a good kick-start for them. But like anything else, it takes dedication and commitment. If I was to make changes to my life right now, an endless list comes to mind. But two things top the list: 1) to spend more time with God in prayer, praise and worship and 2) to get fit. Errrm maybe to stop procastinating. I think I'll get round to them later. LOL. I need motivation. Can anyone help?!
This is so random - but sometimes I imagine what my life would be like if my parents or I had made different decisions regarding my life. For instance, what if my mum had married another guy instead of my dad? Or perhaps my dad had married another lady. Would I still be me? What if I had been born as a guy? Maybe a different nationality? Attended different schools? Been an only child? Hmmm.... life as I know it, would be very different, but it's hard to imagine how different it would be. And sometimes I wonder if life is just a series of random choices, or maybe God had predestined everything about me to the very last detail. Any suggestions?
Aside: It's my friend Dammy's birthday today! Happy Birthday girl! Here's wishing you many more joyful years, and God's blessings in everything you do!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! As for me, I will be busy 'nesting' in the new place. See ya!
