Have I mentioned just how hard completing this list was? It was hard. At one point I found myself listing things that I should do as opposed to what I wanted to do and I had to start all over. But I finished the list. I’m sure this isn’t the final list and that this one will be edited or changed over time. I’ve already started on some of these. I just need to get my act together and start posting pictures and such and keeping track of things. Basically, I need to get organized.

Of course, I don’t plan on doing these things alone. Chris groaned over numbers 12, 21, 37, 52, 78, 79, 52, and 98. Actually, he said that number 79 wasn’t fair because it was solely dependent on him. I told him to suck it. So, that’s the list. Some times I get a little panicky over all that stuff, that stuff that I want to do. That’s a lot of stuff. Guess I better get crackin’.
