Oh holy shit. Honestly. That's a big one. A really big one. I don't know if I can do that!!! Kudos to you, and I think I counted 11 I can help (or benefit from). I will say I admire the tenacity to even put that one out there, I might have to give it some serious thought.

great list! good luck! :)

Let me know when you want to goto Mexico, go to a wine tasting, and if you need laundry to do, let me know you can do mine and I'll let you count it!!!

Awesome Idea, I wish you the best!

Wow. I have to admit that this kind of stressed me out. This is AWESOME making a list like this. My mom made one several years back and she has done remarkably well at crossing things off. She's done some really big things like jumping out of an airplane (times 3), getting braces, and seeing Rod Stewart in the 3rd row!
I just don't know if I could sit and come up with stuff...cause then all I'd do is think about it all day and what I SHOULD be doing or planning but not wanting to!

You've inspired me to think, girl!
You GO! (And come February, I'm ALL IN for the wine tasting! Weren't we going to go and make our own wine once, too??? Whatever happened to that?)
