100 Things for 2010

It has been a long time since I did a list update. Here we are in April of 2010 - working on 2009's list. With all the distractions at the beginning of this year, I never even created a 2010 list.

My last list post was November of 2009. Time to get things updated!

According to my assessment, I ALMOST got half of last year's list done. There were officially over 150 items on it, however, I got a lot more done than that - which wasn't listed. Quite an accomplishment with a new baby in the house. It's nice to look back and pat yourself on the back for all the things you completed.

So here's my updated version of 'the list' for 2010:

Catch up on photo albums is a big one!

We've got a lot of travel ahead for our ministry in the coming months though so projects like photo albums get set aside (we homeschoolers are adaptable, right??) so instead I'll get to work on in-the-car projects like lots and lots of read-alouds with the kids.

We always do lots of read-alouds (one of my homeschooling priorities) but we'll probably break records this year. :)

Also Lord willing, we'll be moving to TX by the end of the year, which means one big goal is minimizing! (moving is great for that, isn't it?)

What is a Zilker Christmas tree??? Thanks for motivating me to write down some of my goals and to DO them!

I think my lists have lists that have lists. And now, thanks to your list, I may have to create another. Or at least add a sublist to my master list.

I think I'm a nerd.

My ship is listing. ;)

My lists have list too. I think I need to make a master list like yours, better put that on my lists of things to do :-)

Your #17 is a postcard project, is that similar to a postcard swap? If so I REALLY want to do that this year as we will be studying the States, so if you need any help please let me know!

I just watched a video where some 47 year old overweight non-athletic comedian (eddie izzard) ran 43 marathons in 51 days!!! "Humble goals do not inspire" - So I'm going to crank my goals up a few notches and work at them relentlessly. After I finish this piece of pie.
