100 Things To Do in 2013

It sounds like a huge lofty goal, doesn’t it? 100 Things To Do in 2013. But ya know what? For the most part, this list flowed easily for me. A lot of what is on here are things I (or my family) want to do already and just having their own space to live and remind me will encourage me to complete them.

So in no specific order here is my list:

1- Seek balance – work, mama & wife. Do not get discouraged, life changes, Jeffrey will grow up and change daily, weekly as will my business. Seek, and experiment.
2- Take myself on 1 date a month. I really don’t get out enough, alone. Try things besides the bookstore.
3- Get 4 massages, 1 each season.
4- Get a tattoo.
5- Create a “family activities” month calender each season, starting in the Summer.
6- Take a 3 day weekend with Scott and Jeffrey. A stay-cation is fine, just don’t interact with anyone else in the house.

    Oh such a long list. I hope you can achieve them all within this year :) I also plan to grow something too, more specifically indoor planting. It’s so call here so it’s quite difficult but I want to try out bringing green to the living space :) And bravo for documenting this list. A great way to track on what you’ve done.
