These are the things that I am going to attempt to accomplish before next July. Wanna help?


  1. That is an awesome set of goals! I may have to steal a few.

  2. First, love the new wallpaper on the blog.

    Second, I would take a timeline approach to your list and most of it can be done by yourself.

    By New Year's Eve, you can reasonably complete the following:
    4, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 24, 30 and for #9, I would check the book out of the library thus giving you a 3 week deadline for returns.

    Then by March 31, you can mix up the big and th little: 2, 3, 5, 6, 17, 19, 27 and 28.

    Then, you're in the final stretch to June 31:
    3, 11, 12, 16, 18, 20,21, 22, 23, 29, 32, 33.

    There's a few items missing in there, but hey. . .

    I can probably help you figure out your Blackberry and/or bring my bike out for a country ride at your place sometime.

  3. I wish I could spend an entire weekend before Christmas making presents. Instead I think I'll have to fit it in whenever there is a spare moment. However, let me know when you want to go to Yosemite. I haven't been there in way too long.
