autumnal equinox

thirteen things i want to accomplish this fall (week #10)

the first day of fall is next week, 9/23. i kept meaning to make a to do list for the summer, clearly i didn't accomplish anything this summer as i never even managed to make the list.


i'll do better this fall. really.

ok, maybe.


the first day of winter is 12/22/06, so i have a couple of months to get these done. ok, so some of them are going to happen no matter what. the wheels are in motion, but i can accomplish them with greatness or with mediocrity (i'd prefer the first option).

these are in no particular order of importance or schedule

1. organize all my recipies, they are scattered on postits and emails and pages ripped out from magazines. i have one of those make your own cookbook books and have been meaning to get it all organized for a while. now is the time.

2. finish personal address book. this is almost as bad as the recipes. i just need to get it all into outlook or excel or something i don't even care what but all in one place.

3. organize the craft supplies and craft projects. i have a couple of plastic tubs of crafty things and then a whole lot of crafty things that won't fit. so i need to buy a couple more tubs and get it all squared away.

4. secure enough walkathon prizes. the walkathon is going to happen whether i accomplish this or not, but i'd rather i got this done. it would just be nicer all around if everyone got a prize.

5. remember to write thank you notes for walkathon sponsors. i think handwritten thank you notes are the most amazing thing and since no one else in the world does this, it carries an amazing weight. but at the same time, its a lot of time and work, so we'll see.

6. figure out what to do: lease is up in october

7. probably move, hopefully just within this complex, either way, andrew should be moving in so that counts as a move too

8. finish one non fiction book (i keep starting them but never finishing)

9. attend all possible Room in the Inn meetings (i was a bit hit or miss last fall/winter and this is the homeless program that i volunteer with so its important)

10. my job feels very up in the air at the moment and while i have no control of the company's decisions, i want to find the best possible solution for me and mine

11. i want to knit something. i tried to start knitting a couple years back and never did much. i'd like to finish that potholder.

12. i'm really hit or miss with excercising. one or the other: i want to either break it to my inner self that i'm a lazy couch potato or finally get into a real excercise habit.

13. i like to try a new recipe every couple of weeks. but andrew is home now and he is a much, MUCH less adventurous eater/cooker than i. so, i'd still like to try new things, about every other week, but i want to try new and different things that i think he'd like. this could either end up rather boring or with hedious deaths.

    Great list. I didn't get much done over the summer at all. Here's hoping that cooler weather will kick me up a few notches. -Margie

    Love the list :) I also see your husband made it back safe and sound. As did my sister. Godspeed and hope all is well with you

    Good luck getting it all done, especially everything for the walkathon - sounds like a great event. :) As for exercise, if you really want to commit to exercising you have to: 1. schedule it in to your calendar, and 2. make it a priority. Some people find it easiest to exercise in the morning, first thing, so that other things don't get in the way as the day progresses.
