I saw this idea on a blog I visited in the middle of the night last night (couldn’t sleep). When I figure out who is was I will give the link. The general idea is to list 101 things you want to do in the next 1001 days. This will obviously have the be a work in progress; both the ideas and the accomplishments. Should be fun though and it is good for me to have a purpose. So, in no particular order or significance. . .
I moved this post from a Page to a Post. It was originally done on May 25, 2008.
Today is my birthday (52 years old) and I am so disappointed in myself for not “having it all together” by now and by how out of shape I’ve continued to get myself. Get not let, because I have chosen all along what to eat and do. No one forced me. I’ve let my focus issues, my depression issues and my life issues lead me around rather than writing my own life script.
This year I hope to “get it together”; it being:
DH and I decided to exchange his office and my studio space. We both have way too much stuff mostly because we have so little time to do the things we want to do but we still add to the list of things we want to do and buy or find things to support thiose habits.
Anyway, the move is in flux. The new furniture was delivered today – DH got a gorgeous leather office chair and a new desk/table. I got two new bookshelves. That won’t be enought but it is what the room has room for.
I thought I would write up a list of 30 things to accomplish in September (ideally one each day).
I love google reader and have subscribed to a bajillion blogs. Of course, I don’t have time to read them all. Today, however, I have gone through a lot of them. I have unsubscribed to the ones that I asked myself, “now what was it that drew me here in the first place?” if I couldn’t answer the question, I unsubcribed.
Per usual, though, I found at least as many new ones to subscribe to. Nevertheless, I am probably half way through reading all the old stuff and I’m so excited. I have been so busy this year with all my volunteer stuff that I didn’t have time to do some of the things that really turn me on; one of which is reading what all these fabulous women (and some men) and up to.
I’ve gather some new ideas, resurrected some old ones and am quite happy right now.
I love it when communities put flags out. We are one of only a few in our neighborhood who has flags in their yard. I remember when the boy scouts used to come around and place a flag in everyone’s yard not too many years ago. THAT might be a good COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTIVITY for DS to do on for Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Fourth of July. I’ll have to ask him about it.

Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 1823
