I’ve crossed several items off my list lately so I’m going to do a full list update rather than separate posts for each. Items with new comments are in red.


  • Get at least one more mom’s group member — This is not looking too promising. I’ve sort of given up on it. Maybe in fall I’ll give it another go.
  • Learn to play one song on the piano by memory — I need to get on this now that I have extra time.
  • Buy a bicycle — DONE! We bought a used one at Express Bike Shop in St. Paul but I haven’t ridden it yet 😦
  • Redo our bathroom floor
  • Finish my 2006 scrapbook — I’m making progress despite having yet to decide what to do about the photos we lost
  • Go canoeing and not ride in the middle — DONE! My mom and I went on a short canoe ride upriver while on vacation and I steered.
  • Try sushi 2/13/09
  • Create a will
  • Make a loaf of bread from scratch 3/18/09
  • Roll-over old 401k to new one — Well, now I have two to roll-over and have to figure out the best way to do that. Any experts out there who want to tell me what to do?
  • Go one week without Internet. 12/31/08
  • Volunteer at a food shelf. 4/25/09
  • Donate platelets — I can no longer do this so I replaced it with “Go geocaching,” which I did two weeks ago at Fort Snelling State Park with a friend. It was pretty easy and a lot of fun. I hope to do it again. If you want to learn how to geocache, check out the several MN state parks that will lend you GPS units and tell you what to do. Except for the park sticker, it’s free!
  • Get a nontraditional massage (reflexology, reiki, etc)
  • Grow something edible, and eat it
  • Fit a car into my garage
  • Play nine holes of golf — DONE! I went while on vacation. I think I did pretty well for my first time. I got frustrated to the point of giving up only once. I’m even willing to play again some time. I think I would do better now that I have some idea of what the heck I’m doing.
  • Proofread a book for UIP
  • Watch 10 Best Picture winners
  • Find a favorite wine. Well, I guess this one is also out. I’ll have to think of a replacement.
  • Climb the REI rock wall
  • Donate my formal gowns
  • Make apple butter 3/18/09
  • Use all the gift certificates currently in my possession (Juut, Blockbuster, WA Frost, Texas Roadhouse, Culvers)
  • Jog a mile without stopping
  • Go through a corn maze
  • Buy prescription sunglasses
  • Organize Connor’s closet. 1/19/09
  • Visit Journey Inn. 1/6/09
  • Write a blog post when each of these goals is completed

  • I completed yesterday’s to-do list, but my father-in-law did the strawberries for me, so I updated my resume instead. I’m not creating weekend to-do lists, so here is Monday’s list: Apply for one job, do laundry, apply for WIC and food stamps.
