Goals for 2010 – Update #1

So, my father-in-law asked me recently how I was coming along with my 2010 [and beyond] goals. Here is my list again with my comments in red:

  • Read through the whole Bible
  • Get certified to foster again – we are working on this now
  • Begin the adoption process
  • Print black and white photos and get them framed for my b&w project – this is on hold until we sell our house (it’s not wise to put more holes in the wall to hang pictures when we’ll just have to take them down before we put the house on the market).
  • Eat something I’ve never tried before
  • Build a snowman – COMPLETED on 2/12 [my birthday] when it snowed about an inch at our house
  • Go visit Angie in Denver

  • Be successful with a compost pile
