My 2011 To Do List

I don't normally make New Years Resolutions. I tend to make them around my birthday when I make any at all. This year, I'm switching it up. Here goes, everyone. My 2011 To Do List! (I also figure that calling it a to do list makes it much more likely to get done rather than keeping a resolution which can dissolve. A to do list sounds much more like something I just have to do. Although some of these are more hopeful and wishful than maybe more likely to get done. Just some. Not most.) I have no idea how long this list will turn out to be, but you can bet that I'll be keeping you up to date on my progress on it!

I maintain the right to add to this list as I see fit.

  1. You said reattach the leg on your piano twice. Just thought I'd point that out. :)

    I have lots of things that I would like to have happen, but the only one I'm really willing to focus on this year will be losing weight after the baby is born. I've determined that getting down to my recommended BMI weight would be pretty sweet. So... yeah.

  2. those are really good goal suki. now I am going to go downstairs and make my own "TO DO" list. So much better. Good luck with the list. I am sure you will get them accomplished.
