30 by 30 One Year Update

So today marks the one year anniversary of making my 30 by 30 list...and, y'all the clock is ticking VERY LOUD reminding me of how VERY close the big 3-0 is for me!!  Actually, 160 days to be exact - YIKES!!!!  I've got to get on the ball to complete my list...

27. Go on a picnic with Brad
28. Make an effort to call or send a card once a week to someone for encouragement
29. De-clutter. Organize. Simplify. (10/2010...more about this soon)
30. Consciously remind myself to find joy in every day!

I've crossed off 11, but that still leaves 19...hmmmm, not so sure I'm gonna make it (and, there's some that are quite obviously not gonna make the time limit unless there's some divine intervention - such as #6.)  Oh well, I still want to keep these things on my list, and what I don't accomplish before the big 3-0 I'll hopefully do before the big 3-1!  HA!!


  1. You've done better than me. I'm not sure if I've accomplished any of my list. I still have 22 more months so maybe I can get something crossed off soon. Which reminds me I guess I need to look at my list. :)

  2. In God's time. You still have 160 days left, and what is my motto? Never Give Up! Maybe God is waiting until you accomplish all entries on your 30 by 30, because after #6 happens, none of the others will be as important.
