Thirty Things

NaBloPoMo Day 29

Today is my birthday and I am now 29 years old. It is kind of odd, because I really don't feel like I am 29. One year away from 30.

It has been a pretty relaxing day so far. I messed around on the internet this morning. We came over to Brook and Geoff's around midmorning to watch the Tigers play KU...not so pretty. I got to work on some digital scrapbooking for a while...I still have a lot to learn, but I think I am really going to like it!

This evening, we are going to my parent's house for my birthday dinner: Mom's lasagna and chocolate delight~yum! Don and Nancy and Brook and Geoff and the boys are coming, too.

I got a birthday email today that said, "Don't just count your years, make your years count!" As I thought about my birthday, I decided to pick 30 things that I want to do by the time I am 30. So, here it goes, in no particular order:

  • Take at least one cooking class
  • Start a scrapbook for Austin
  • Keep up with Austin's scrapbook
  • Get into a workout routine after I have Austin
  • Get back to pre-pregnancy size/weight
  • Start my pregnancy scrapbook
  • Finish my pregnancy scrapbook
  • Shave $50/mo off our grocery budget- right now $200/mo
  • Establish an organized routine for cleaning at home
  • Keep the house clean for a month straight
  • Establish a routine for quiet time
  • Take a photography class
  • Get at least 4 massages
  • Put pictures up in hallway
  • Try a new dish every month
  • Go on a weekend getaway with Andrew after the baby comes
  • Stay at a bed and breakfast
  • Start serious research about homeschooling
  • Establish a date night with Andrew at least once a month- just the two of us
  • Volunteer for a charitable event
  • Keep my car cleaned out for a month straight
  • Establish a family devotional time each week
  • Organize my desk and keep it that way for a month
  • Create a will
  • Pay off at least one big bill
  • Become proficient in using Gimp
  • Memorize 25 Bible verses
  • Read 25 books
  • Organize and thin out the recipes I want to try
  • Be better about sending out cards
I will keep you updated as I accomplish these things. It will be interesting to see how many I get accomplished!

I HIGHLY recommend the "Keep my house clean for 30 days in a row" goal to have top priority, like tomorrow, so you can finish BEFORE the baby comes!!! Lots of love and God's Blessing's for year 29, Carol
