2011 List

So, last year I got frustratingly close to completing the 2010 list. It seemed simple enough. 12 things, 12 months. Get it done. This year, I intend on getting them all done. Come Hell or high water. 

Here is the trick this year though, I intend on posting about all of them. Last year I didn't post about most of them because I was holding back. I used the excuse that they were too personal or boring. This year though, you guys are gonna hear about all of them. That is the bonus item on my list this year. I hope you are able to stick around and find out how it all turns out.

Here you have it, my official "Things I want to accomplish in 2011" list:

1. Spend some quality time with my mother. Its not going to be easy and it may not be for long but I need to see her without my kids. Since having D, we really haven't spent any time together, just the two of us. So its time to date my mother again

2. Have a garage sale and get rid of what we don't sell through donation. Or just donate it. What ever we have to do to declutter. We have so much stuff. It really is ridiculous the amount of just stuff we have stored in the garage and the attic. Its everywhere! So, we need to get rid of it.

3. Take the boys to Stone Mountain Park. If you are local, you know what I am talking about. If not, look here. It may seem hokey but its something that I know they would really enjoy. 

4. Plant (and not kill) some plants or flowers. Yeah, we rent but we are free to do what ever we want to the yard and house and its something I have never done. Even as a kid, we always just let grow what the people before us had planted. 

5. Complete the 30 Day No- Spend Challenge. This one is going to be hard for me. I am a self professed shopaholic so the idea of not spending any money except complete necessities is going to be a hard one for me. A good challenge for a good change though. 

6. Take a class, of some sort, to better myself. I'm not getting all ambitious and crap here. Just something like a knitting class or computer class of some sort. Maybe even Zumba! Something fun.

7. Give up soda (as in: carbonated beverages/ Coke/ Pepsi/ whatever you call it in your neck of the woods) for at least 3 months. I know it is bad for you for so many reasons but sometimes it is what I reach for. I want to see if the sodas I have really have that much of an effect on my health. I started today (1/1/11) let us see how far I get!

8.Learn to do the Electric Slide. Corny? Yes. Shut up, its not your list. Still, its something that I can't do and something that will be a challenge for me. I have two left feet and a really crappy memory. Should be interesting.

9. Visit my Nana. She only lives about an hour away and for some reason we have the hardest time getting up there to see her. In fact it has been over a year already. She is my only living Grandmother and has hardly met the boys so its time to get serious about getting up there.

10. Go see a movie or show with my husband. We were talking about it this evening and neither of us can remember the last time we actually went to a theater, without the boys, and saw a grown up movie together.

11. Visit Turner Field and watch the Braves play. D will love it and it means a lot to T to share it with his son. 

12. Hire a professional photographer to take some good pictures of us as a family. Its time for a family portrait of epic proportions. 


  1. I can take care of 8 for you. 5 isn't happening but I'll keep the faith for you!

    You can come take Zumba with me, I need a workout buddy!

  2. That is great! These are good goals and I am sure you will do a wonderful job accomplishing them. I have not done the professional photos of the family yet. I think that is a great idea. The electric slide is fun aand you will pick it up pretty quickly. Happy New Year!
