Revisiting my list

Yesterday was the marker of being 24 years and 5 months, and I decided I should check out that list I wanted to try to complete before August 15th. Honestly, I've slightly sucked, but I think it's still doable! I've done one volunteering opportunity, but I'd like to do another, and I really meant to make an apple pie in the fall, but that's okay. I want to develop the habit of yoga/stretching in general, as a masseur told me if I didn't start stretch my board-stiff back, I could have major trouble later. I bought a hot yoga coupon, but let it expire, so I'm changing my goal as really any yoga would do. So.. 17.5 to go :)

1. Bake a roughly perfect (apple) pie.
2. Complete a half marathon.
3. Learn to play the Pachelbel Cannon.
4. Sing karaoke (with the girls).
5. Take an interior design course.
6. Pursue two volunteering opportunities.
7. Write a short story I'm not ashamed to share.
8. Develop a filing system.
9. Plant a vegetable garden.
10. Go on a ghost tour.
11. Learn to cook with a crockpot.
12. Reread all the Harry Potters.
13. Teach Sully to roll over.
14. Make someone else's dream come true.
15. Try hot yoga.
16. Use my fondue kit.
17. Visit a major city.
18. Learn to paint (a picture* or a room.. or both).
19. Find the globe that will live in my future house.
20. Learn the art of up-dos. (know how to do a messy and a neat one)
21. Take and turn pictures black and white for my future coffee table.
22. Make a chores list and (mostly) follow it.
23. Develop a strength workout routine.
24. Find a perfect red lipstick.
25. Get further committed to my ff!


  1. didn't you do wine and design? doesn't that count as painting?? :) I like your list. I should make a list. I'd have to really make sure i was ok with not completing it all right away :)

  2. If you want, you can use one of my free guest passes for Lifetime Family Fitness to go to a (regular) yoga class. I really want to try hot yoga too though, as my friend and her hubby tried it and loved it.


  3. Good point Debbie! Lael - I would love to use one! Thank you! I'll be sure to ask you tomorrow night :)

  4. I really need to make a list myself; I never realize how much time goes by between thinking of something to do and NOT doing it! Great list and good luck!
