Making plans...

One thing you should know about me is that I hate New Year's ~never have can't imagine that I ever will. January just isn't a time of renewal if you ask me. That being said for some reason I feel really compelled this year to make a plan ~decided on a couple of things I really want to do this year and make a plan to see them accomplished and also to make a resolution or two ~I have some stuff I would like to be better at.
I don't usually do this sort of thing because I find it overwhelming but I found this list and decided to share it and thought maybe it could be an interesting starting point for me.

This is awesome! You have done a lot. Are you sure you don't want to go skinny dipping-heee.

I am not usually a resolution type either, but this year I found something I am going to try. More of a "to do" than resolve to do list. I am almost done making it :)

I think it's fantastic that you've bounced a check, gotten food poisoning, and been stung by a bee! Not everyone can say they've done those things. Hee, hee.

I want to know more about you killing and preparing an animal for eating and riding on a speeding motorcycle - or maybe I don't.

Erin said...

You totally have done stuff--don't ever doubt it.

Interesting list. I'm disturbed you've held a praying mantis. And why is "save a person's life" not italicized?
