A List Update

25 Jan

So. Let’s have a little chat, shall we?

The whole point of this little exercise in public over-sharing was the list, which I haven’t been paying specific attention to in the last few months.  Subconsciously though?  I’ve been kicking a little tush. I’m halfish the way there.

Having gotten through more than half of the year, I have some thoughts about my Things, and not a few reconsiderations.  Short notes below.  Expanded posts on specific Things to follow.

  1. Clean, repair and organize my jewelry (Organized, cleaned, still needs repairing)
  2. Train my puppies (They’re … better)
  3. Hit my healthy weight (The Rice Krispie treat I’m eating demonstrates otherwise)
  4. Have a campfire (Done.  Repeatedly, joyfully!)
  5. Tequila shots with my husband (Honestly?  I don’t think I want to do this one.  Tequila makes me sick, really it does.  But there was a reason it was on the list…crap.)
  6. Address my health concerns (Ongoing, probably will never be crossed off)
  7. Bake a beautiful loaf of bread
  8. Rid my house of extraneous ‘stuff’ (Started, not finished, but already I feel lighter)
  9. Create and stick to a nightime beauty regimen (This…is never going to happen)
  10. Prime rib and yorkshire pudding at Lawry’s
  11. Take Claire and Mark to an amusement park
  12. Eat at our favorite BBQ diner with my in-laws (Done, deliciously)
  13. Make a perfect 4 layer Red Velvet Cake (I made the cake.  Was it perfect? No.  Calling it done anyway.  Perfect is the enemy of good, right?)
  14. Have carpets so clean, they sparkle (Well, we bought a carpet cleaner and used it…)
  15. A day in Chicago doing old favorites I love and something new
  16. Find the perfect pants, get them altered if need be
  17. Weekend roadtrip, something romantic
  18. Hike at Starved Rock
  19. Jump into an enormous pile of crinkly fall leaves (Done.  Wish I had pictures)
  20. Spend an entire day at GJs pool (Done, more than once.)
  21. Find and display photographs of my family, friends and life
  22. Feather my nest (Make my bed perfect and dreamy) (In process!  Mood board coming!)
  23. Buy myself a right hand ring
  24. Throw two perfect showers for two of my best friends (One down, one to go.  Was the first perfect? Not sure, but it was lovely.)
  25. Play outside in a summer rain (Done, yay!)
  26. Write thank you letters to the important people in my life, mail them on my birthday
  27. Make a grand and loving gesture to my husband
  28. Martini at the Brass Ring, on a warm and breezy night (Done)
  29. Organize an event for all of the Lennon/Wilson/Gossen girls (Probably not going to happen.  Between holidays and the upcoming wedding/shower festivities?  We are going to be overscheduled and probably sick of each other.  But it is something I really really want to do.  Maybe next year?)
  30. Make a list of the 30 things I’m grateful for at 30 and frame it
