What was your 'next project'?

Sun Oct 10, 2010 10:01 pm

Now that our wedding is over I'm finding I have a lot of spare time.
We're landscaping the yard and I'm also planning our next few holidays. I still feel I could be doing more though, and we're not ready for kids for a couple of years yet.
What was your 'next project' after the wedding?

I have been wondering the same thing, as the wedding has taken up so much of my time, effort and thoughts over the last few years :(

My main project was to make a wedding scrapbook containing all the photos (pro and non-pro) with actual items/momentos (menu, name cards etc) and all the journaling about our day as well as info on who and why we chose certain things for the wedding. This has been a huge task that almost 2yrs on still isnt finished. But inbetween doing that ive made personalised calendars for the family as xmas presents, my FILs 60th b'day photobook album of his life, organising several holidays (big and small). Work and everday life is busy enough anyway so its nice sometimes just to hang out together at home and do nothing but enjoy each others company.

planning holidays!

- Got married in July 2010
- since planned a holiday to Bali in November 2010
- Going to Darwin in December 2010
- I've planned my Europe holiday for September 2011
- I've had quotes to get our pool resurfaced ($7000 8O 8O 8O 8O )
- Started renovating downstairs. so far I've had new windows installed. then I ran out of money due to planning so many holidays :?
- AND primarily focusing on my career and trying to get back into work. as you can see, I'm easily distracted!

Since being married in December 2009...

Had a few breaks - Gold Coast Trip (5 days), Back to our home town x 2 (1 week & 4 days)

Started studying

We are currently moving home

And we are planning a HUGE holiday to Europe with the kids at the end of 2012.

Also saving to pay out my car loan in September next year


My main focus atm (apart from the kids & DH) is to get on top of everything at work, I've been depressed & stressed and my work has slipped so I really need to stay focused . :roll:

Having a baby is our biggest thing at the moment, but going through IVF, which will take some time.
And planning our vow renewals for 2012... we agreed to do it after we have bub :)
And starting my business is keeping me busy :mrgreen:

Wish I could do a wedding album, but I am still waiting for my pro pics 6 months on :roll:

I will be getting back to my hobby of sewing. Poor FH took me on a shopping trip to Spotlight (rare event for me since we don't have one) for my birthday which was in March and I got to stock up on fabric, but I haven't touched any of it! :? I wasn't allowed to start wedding plans until after my sister's wedding which was a week after my birthday so as soon as her wedding was over, the planning for our own wedding began! It's kind of taken over my life - funny how that happens.

Haha, my little wedding is my side project after the twins are born!
After the wedding though we're slowly going to do renos on the house (bathroom, kitchen, repaint inside and out) then decide whether we want to sell and buy bigger or add an extra bedroom/extend lounge room.

im beginning to think i need a project! i have just finished studying- (again) unlike many of who who seem to be in the middle of it. i will be going back to work five days a week which i rekon will be tough. ive only been workign 3 days per week and having 2 days paid study leave. also do a little bit of quilting. i stopped when i had lots of uni assignments and as the wedding got close but now ill be able to get back into it.

When I got back from the Honeymoon, I had my 30th birthday party to plan. It was awesome to have something to focus on after all the excitment from the wedding!

We also started trying for a baby when we got back from our honeymoon ... and conceived very shortly after! So bub (due in 4 weeks) has been my other project to focus on! :-)

Our project is the baby :lol: And not that DH did a whole lot of planning ( :roll: ) but he's throwing himself into ways to make money from home for when I have the baby and am not working.

Other than the baby, I've been focusing on Christmas :D

Mine is going to be planning for our honeymoon! We're not taking our's until a year later, so I can keep myself occupied with that! Also, I want to use some of my now "free time" to dedicate to me time, or more girlie time with my friends! Oh and catch up on months of sleep that I lost!
