8. Start to trace my family tree
11. Make a household inventory, including pictures and serial numbers, for insurance purposes
12. Transfer all of my paper files onto my hard drive, and then make a back up of all of my digital files

14. Throw a party with a clever theme

31. Have a go at mosaic making

33. Enter a photo contest.
34. Complete the urban alphabet photograph project- I’ve got many letters, but not nearly enough.

37. Create a cookbook of recipes I’ve made up or were given to me
38. Mail a secret to Postsecret

just little ol’ me checking in

update time:

#22- i took fenway on a “doggy date”…aka i took her to work, lol. she hurt her hip and i didn’t want to leave her home alone, so i took her to work. it was like “bring your kid to work day!” my little puppy is a very good worker 🙂

#62- did i actually write in here that i failed NABLOPOMO for the month of january? cause i did 😉

#66- I FINISHED ANOTHER GOAL! my grace in small things challenge is complete. for 365 days in a row i listed the stuff i was grateful for on my other blog. i was actually glad to complete this goal; it was kind of draining me. its funny how normal it became for me though, every day i seem to notice more and more of things i should be thankful for.

#69- i’ve actually written 13 letters to friends! i’ve written another to EP, another to sarah, another to lauren one to both my brother and his wife, one to my friend monica, one to nicky and one to my friend chris. (i think that i named everyone!)
