The List for 2015 – updated

This is my list of routines to start performing and projects to complete during 2015. For now I’m just writing the item and then later I’ll explain what the item is and why it is on the list. Some of them have definite times when they will need to be done and others can be done at any time throughout the year.  Here they are in no particular order…

  1. Yellow dot information – health information to store in your car in case you are in an accident and unable to speak
  2. Vials of life information – health information to store in your refrigerator to aid EMT’s who are called to your home
  3. Bedroom curtains – need to get something up to block the streetlight and the neighbor’s motion lights so I can get some good sleep
  4. Garden Stones – decorations/borders for in the garden/yard
  5. The girl’s quilt – she picked out the pattern and fabric ages ago and we need to get it finished before she graduates in 2016
  6. Oven – took out the racks to do self-clean cycle, it didn’t work and then I couldn’t get the racks back in – been waiting for repair for years
  7. Paperback swap/book mooch – lots of books I’ve read and no longer want, been meaning to try these services out and now is the time
  8. The girl’s scrapbooks
  9. The boy’s scrapbooks
  10. Ott light bulbs – I have several Ott lights that need new bulbs but I haven’t been able to find the bulbs when I go to the store, maybe it’s time to order on line?
  11. Credit report routine – should be checking these on a regular basis
  12. Names of Jesus garland-Christmas
  13. Names of Jesus garland – Easter
  14. Get new glasses – lost my reading glasses 11/13 and still haven’t replaced them, probably will need new far and near vision lenses
  15. Duvet cover – comforter has several tears which can not really be repaired and look nice so I got fabric to make a duvet cover but it is just sitting by my sewing machine

Tidbit Tuesday

Just another installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head…

It’s been so long since I’ve written anything and I don’t even know where to start.

Israel was wonderful. You never know what kind of person you will get when the travel agent matches you with a stranger but Dian was a dream. We got along and had a great time together. The scenery was different than what I had expected. Instead of lots of brown and yellow there were wildflowers, lots of green and of course the various blues of the sky and sea/river. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us moving at a quick pace. There were certain areas I would have liked to linger in and others I could have skipped but overall it was a spectacular trip.

The family managed to make it without me. DS was sad to see me return because it meant an end to the “good” snacks and the unlimited tv and computer time he enjoyed at the sitter’s house afterschool each day. DD was glad to no longer have laundry and babysitting duties. Dh was happy to go back to just his usual work load.

Somehow I got onto Jon Acuff’s mailing list – can’t remember how- and he just sent an email about starting over and it really resonated with me. My plan for the new year ground to halt after Israel and it is time to get back in the saddle and get to work. I’ll be recommitting to my word for the year – COMPLETION- by choosing some items to get done. Stay tuned for an update on that.

I got off track with my fitness due to the trip but I’m planning to get back into the swing of things with the beginning of March fast approaching. I’ve been toying with starting a 100 day challenge – working on doing a plank position exercise and trying to add more seconds each day. Anyone up for joining me? You wouldn’t have to do the same exact challenge. Just pick one thing (like taking care of one piece of paperwork-that’s a hint for you J) and commit to doing it for 100 days. It would be helpful to do it with other people – we could check in with each other and cheer each other on. Let me know if you would be interested in joining me. I’ll be starting March 1st so that gives you sometime to come up with your challenge.

Need to get to work on the laundry and a plan for dinner, so I’m off for now. Please think about joining in the 100 day challenge – I need all the help I can get to keep me on track.
