Elsie Challenge!

Things to do before my next birthday....

Weeelll... doesn't give me a whole lot of time. My birthday is next month, 9/18.

  1. Finish some of the projects I have floating around in my head. (and use the fabric that is floating around on my dining room table!)

  2. Paint my kitchen. I have the colors and everything picked out. Just need to do it. We can't afford to completely re-do it yet, but a few gallons of paint we can swing.

  3. Get over my fear, buy some canvas and paint something. My mom & her sisters were all awesome artists. Whenever I see the paintings they did when they were kids I am totally inspired.

  4. Find a house for my friend Kasey & her family out here.
Things I would like to do before my next birthday (2008)

  1. Visit my friend Jodi who lives in Indiana (or get her a plane ticket to come visit Kasey & me!)

  2. Decorate more in the house

  3. Do more volunteer work

  4. (hopefully!) Get pregnant. :D

I am sure more will pop up as the days progress. I always adding to my to-do list.

Well, the acquisition of a new laptop has stalled. Only for the time being tho. The reason why is aggravating, and I really don't want to re-hash it. Bottom line, my dearest just doesn't think I know what I am talking about. never mind that I have been researching this since April/May. ugh! well, off to run some errands, Target, Bath & Body Works & 2 mystery shopping assginments that I have to get done today. (yippie!)

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL day!


  1. Good luck on the painting and getting everything else done!!

    My bday is 9/22.

  2. Seems like you have some good goals! Best of luck!

  3. Good luck with your lists! If you need some advice on buying a laptop, let me know. My husband is the IT Director at work and does all of the computer and laptop purchases for work and home.

  4. Good luck with your goals!!
    My b'day is 9/19 the day after yours.

  5. Good luck on your B-day tasks and happy early birthday!

  6. Get luck on getting the goals accomplished! I am a listmaker, too, so I know how satisfying that checkmark is!
