I Dug It Up

It's true after 10 whole minutes of searching, I found my goals-to-be-accomplished-before-I'm-40 list.  And you know what?  I was surprisingly unambitious!  (Unlike my friend who has 40 things she wants to do before she turns 40.  Sheesh.  Overachievers.)  I am completely sure that the fact that I had a 3-month-old baby when I wrote this list has NOTHING to do with my lack of ambition.  But here is what I hoped to accomplish and should be half way done with by now:

1. Improve my spiritual life.
2. Get healthy
3. Participate in the PTA
4. Get out of debt
5. Early to bed, early to rise
6. Nourish my relationship with Wendell
7. Get the house organized.

That's it!  Seven whole things.  So, I should be done with 3.5 of them.  Number 1 is going well.  Number 3 is well in hand.  Number 4 is checked off!  Number 5...still working on that.  Number 6 is going well.  And we're trying mightily at Number 7.

That was fascinating.

Um, if you having a list is "unambitious" then what does that make me? I have NO list! Hadn't ever occurred to me to come up with a list of what to do before I turn 40 and now here I am half-way through my 35th year. Boy, talk about a slacker...yup, that's me! Guess I'd better get a list going? : )
