Plans, plans and more plans…

20 March 2010

When I started the blog, I thought I had so much I needed to say and I didn’t want to bore my loved ones (who probably think I love the sound of my own voice a little bit too much anyway!). But all this stuff to say doesn’t seem to have translated into writing. But I’m back. & I still have lots to say.

What have I been thinking about…ok obsessing about? Well, two things to be precise. 

 1) A round-the world trip to be taken with my husband and two kids (yes, will have to pull them out of school), but wait for this….in SIX YEAR’S TIME!! I’m not ashamed of the time-line…I mean, to afford a trip like that (and I’m talking about a 6 to 9 month long trip), you do need to plan and save and plan and think through things. I’ve started early and that’s ok. But I’ve been spending ALL my internet time researching where to go, the best time to travel to the places I think I want to go to, the potential itinerary, the milestones in the kids’ schooling that we’ll have to get around, the finances. It  must be a phase and it’s taking me away from what I REALLY should be concentrating on…

which is…another plan…

2) To start up my own online business. I’ve been a ‘dedicated’ stay-at-home mom for the last 5 years and from next year, my younger daughter will be going to pre-school (2 days a week) and I feel that I need to be doing something else. Not so much because I’ll get bored or won’t have enough to do, but because I know that if I don’t then I’ll have to officially accept my role as a full-time housewife and I have no desire to do that. You see, I’m a MOM not a housewife at the moment 🙂 Anyway, there’s so much I need to do re: my business. First priority is finishing the damn business plan. I am SO procrastinating.  I have to do lots of research and I think I’m afraid that I might find that my business idea is not viable once I do do the research! But this round-the-world trip planning isn’t helping either!!!!

Ok, so it’s actually just plan & plan. No ‘more plans’…everything else is on hold till I know where I’m at with my business. The aim is to launch at the back-end of this year or beginning of next year. There, I’ve committed it on cyberspace now, so hopefully I’ll hop to it and make sure it happens. Wish me luck all ye folks that are NOT reading this blog – hahahaha!!!!
