This time next year...

While doing errands today, I passed this homemade ice rink near the railroad bridge in Bourne.
I thought it looked like a clean slate....

On to my New Year's list...

This was not easy, because I know I will think of new things as the year progresses but I am going to post this anyways.

I decided on 11 things since it is 2011.
Some are BIG, but I am going to make the leap anyway!! : )

1. Draw up a will. ( I know!! This should have been done years ago!!)
2. Sell our condo and a cozy, happy home.
3. Start sorting, purging and packing.
4. Budget to have a little fun money left over at the end of the month.
5. Sell my wares on Etsy.
6. Take a Graduate course towards my re-certification.
7. Create a blog for my classroom.
8. Publish children's book.
9. Learn how to knit mittens.
10. Pay off car.
11....Not sure?? Will have to check back to see what it is when I figure it out : )

P.S. I have decided that with each item I check off my list...I am going to add a new one!


  1. Great list and I wish you well~ You inspire me to make a list myself!!
    ♥ E

  2. Thanks and I am happy that I am inspiring....Now, I hope to follow through!
    : )

  3. "Inspiration from my girls"

    First thing on my list:
    Stop listening to the news
    #2 listen to my book on tape

  4. I like your list Mom! I love listening to books on tape! : )

  5. I love the idea of adding a new thing each time you tick something off. That's very cool. Hope you tick off and add lots of new things throughout the year.

  6. Thanks Cathy! I hope I haven't overstepped my bounds with this list!! I am usually not a fan of New Year's Resolutions, but this year, I feel differently! Your blog post inspired me! I like the idea of posting...helps me feel accountable!
    Thanks for visiting my blog! : )
