I can't remember a time when my Dad didn't have a complicated series of lists organizing his world. He'd list how much time he put in on various projects for the odd-jobs he did around my grandmother's farm. He'd list things he wanted to accomplish on the following weekend. He'd list things he needed to get...things he wanted to do. When he didn't have a list to make, he'd doodle his name.

My turn. I've started a list. It doesn't say so anywhere on there, but (now you'll know) it's a list of the 37 things I want to do before I turn 37....that's six months from Thursday. I'm hoping for lots of check marks over the next six months...

...but if that doesn't work out, maybe I'll just doodle my name.

Many worthy goals! Is 6 months enough? Some items do seem much more difficult to accomplish than others. Like going to the dentist for instance. It's been about 5 years for me, and before that, it was 7 years in between.
