I am on a roll, people! Friday I told you about my efforts to live a significantly more fulfilling life. I started this weekend by making my two lists, as I promised myself I would. It took some doing, but I think I've got the makings of some solid plans for this year. Here we go!

Getting out of the house more is such a great idea. The idea of working away from the house is one I should take for myself (even if it means writing in a notebook (gasp)).

I like your list and have several of the same things on my list. I goal for this year is to get out there and enjoy life more. My two boys are almost adults and I am preparing myself for when I will not have to spend my time mothering and can enjoy doing Jennifer.

I think that seeing a pow wow would be fun, hadn't thought about that one, but sounds great.

Paint again?! The things we still have to learn about you, talented lady! Expansion, ho!

Jon: I write in notebooks all the time. It might sound odd in this very digital age, but I sort of feel more connected to what I write when I do it by hand.

MsJ: Yes! Getting out and doin' you! I wish you luck :)

Tracey: Oh, yeah. I was big into art as a kid. So much so that I went to an after school program for it. I love pretty much anything creative.

These are some great ideas, I especially like getting dressed up and going to a fancy restaurant and watch a parade live. These all seem like doable yet really fun experiences!

KWade: Fun and doable is absolutely what I was going for. I'm looking to live a little this year (and from now on)!
