List Makers Anon.

** I just lost most of this post. It's a test of character, I think. I will NOT retype it all right now, so you'll just have to get the short version. Dang.**
Makin' my list, checkin' in twice...

Remember my 35 Things to do Before I'm 35? You was only about 2 weeks ago.

Well, folks, I have already been able to cross two of my items off the list. I'd say that's pretty good progress thus far. I've got this thing called self-motivation that drives me forward. Yes, it's a quality of most List-Makers. We must have something to cross off. And, honestly, if you are a TRUE born-and-bred list maker, then you will also feel compelled to go back and add things you've already done to the list, just so you can check off those items. It's a sickness.

But we get things done. I'm not competitive by nature, except with The List (which, by the way, is why I added the last item. Must retain sanity.)

#21 Watch local play.
Done. "Fanstasticks" was truly fantastic. Rochelle, you brought down the house with the Ha Ha Ha song.

#6 Canoe. Done. With all four kids. And no tipping. Success.

(short version- sorry- ugh)And, not on the official list: "Nurture the Artist's Love of Horses."
Only crossed off on the Great List In My Head because other people have given their time and resources to bring such joy to a little girl. Look at her face! She is beaming!
Go do some great things!

I am inspired to make a list. I think the kids and I will do that this morning.

Just what are those Woods up to? said...

GOOD JOB! Yeah, I'm one of those who adds things I've already done just so I can check them off. Mentally, it's encouraging to be able to see it on paper. Keep going, Wenders! PS--keep up the summer of no pants, too. I greatly admired how you rode a horse in a skirt the other day! Soon I think I'll have a skirt or 2 to give you to support the cause (:
