    That is one hell of a list ;o)
    DH and I are going to do the 365 project too. Can’t decide whether to do random photo each day or self-portrait one.

    Hey what is the 365 project? I have to find out and see if I can give it a try. I like your list. I really am going to write one, and segment it the way you have. Very well done.

    I’m feeling inspired – by your list AND by what you go accomplished last year….

    Good list!

    hehehe. However, I must do the uber-BK thing in saying that in “money” it says “stop shopping” and in the next category, “home,” it says “buy picture frames”… 😉 So, so that you will not be in such conflict in the upcoming year, pick out picture frames and I will get them for you for your birthday. 🙂 This way you will not be shopping or using a credit card and you will be saving money, but you will still be getting picture frames. And I won’t have to over-think what to get you for your birthday because “stop over-thinking” is going on my list of things to do in 2008. 🙂

    at first i thought that list was so complete it must be a joke…but there’s no punch line. except maybe that the, um, reader is lazy and totally unmotivated. and a procrastinator. although i have come up with one resolution: i will WRITE DOWN all my gift-giving ideas instead of foolishly thinking i will remember what to get people when the time comes.

    and keep losing weight, by continiung to exercise and become one of those “exercise people”.

    and not go crazy.

    An admirable list indeed. If you only accomplish a part of it you’d be doing well. If you accomplish everything then I will be in complete awe of your total awesomeness!! Good luck and try your best. Remember that often our greatest accomplishments may seem to be failures at first. In case I don’t make it back before then, have yourself and Aaron and the whole clan a fantastic New Year!

    I like the finnish unpacking thing. I still have boxes that I have forgoten what is in them and a sneaky suspition that the stuff inside I have no real use for. That way if I don’t open it I don’t have to deal with binning/recycling or thinking about those items. I have a feeling that my list would only consist of two items 1) get a new job and 2) buy a house

    I think this is a great list too, H! Very admirable. Everything on your list is totally doable. 🙂 I will be here this year to encourage you. If I can help at all, let me know.

    P.S. Overnight trip? *points to guest bedroom* C’mon down! ❤
