January 11, 2008

I know I know, I’m a bad blogger, but the wireless network doesn’t work on my computer so no internet, but I finally created an account on Garry’s computer and am slowly taking it over lol. I have been inspired by the lovely Miss V to do the 101 things to do in 1001 days project. I couldn’t sleep tonight so I have been sitting here for the past hour and a half working on my list. Some of the things on the list scare the hell out of me (like #13) and some may seem trivial (like #18) and some of them are just things that I have wanted to do for ages but am too lazy to do (like #29).

    Hi Tash

    I hope your well and having a good week.

    How are the boys enjoying school?

    Amanda is in Grade 3 this year. I can’t believe how fast she is growing up.

    I love this list of things. It’s good to write them all down and have them in front of you so as to be reminded of what you want to achieve.

    Personally I really should do:

    Number 3/ Our vegetable garden has been floooded recently with all the rain Sydney has had.

    Number 11/ Organise my craft room better and get some more more storage containers.

    Number 42/ Teach Amanda how to ride her bike without the training wheels still attached. She never wants me to take them off so I haven’t yet (she is now 7 years old).

    Number 58/ I too need to back up my photos. I have scanned so many of them into my computer and saved them in “My Pictures” but have a fear of loosing them all one day if something happens to my computer.

    Number 59/ We too need a new fry pan. I just threw our old one out this week cause it was 11 years old and not was not working very well. I was worried it might blow up and give me an electric shock.

    Number 69/ Having a couple of hours at the hair dresser is one of my urgent needs too. I think I will make an appointment tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder.

    Number 79/ I want for my husnand and I to go out for dinner on Valentines Day Feb 14th. I need a break from cooking dinner every night and we need a fun romantic night out together.

    Number 93/ I can relate to this. Amanda turns on the TV to watch kids shows after school then 1/2 hour later she is in her bedroom playing with dolls and the TV is still on wasting electricty.

    Good luck getting these things achieved Tash. It’s a brilliant list with so many great ideas on it. Have a nice day and take care of yourself.
