Yessirree Bob!

1. Say yes - Summer is a good time for me. I get a lot of yessing done. See: Eddie Izzard, Eddie the Dog, and a trip to Governors Island coming up.

2. Buy Flash - DONE

3. Write a book - A kind and insightful blogger helped point me in the right direction for this. It feels possible now.

4. Singing lessons regularly

5. Perform - Working on it. The venue search continues.

6. Fix house - DONE  - Still working on restoring the fucking bathroom and closet. GAH!

7. Commit to writing and administration work for The Women's Colony for one year (I write twice per week and have agree to set up and oversee Twitter & Facebook for the site.) - DONE, since the site has dissolved I can call it that, I guess.

8. Plan Italy trip - Postponed until October of 2011, but I'm committed to that time frame and need to start planning in earnest.

9. Renew passport - DONE, I even know where my passport it right now.

10. Go to Blogher - DONE and so glad of it! It brought me so much.

11. Write Aunt Rena once a week

12. Sign up for some online dating site - I have followed the letter of this law but not the spirit, more work to be done, more yes to be said.

13. Go on enough dates to judge the dating site

14. At least one session with the fabulous PT, Shelley

15. Write a Life List (per the Maggie Mason model) - Published an update yesterday. Did you see it?

16. Take Flash class - DONE I took it and I loved it!

17. Attend live theatre - already seen Let Me Down Easy and In The Next Room, a Ping Chong piece. Saw Reduced Shakespeare with Carmencita & Alita. Saw Glee Club, which was a delight. Saw Race by David Mamet and Addams Family with Bebe Neuwirth and Nathan Lane. Saw a big old wedding that was pretty theatery. Now I've also seen Next To Normal.

18. Mermaid Parade - DONE and I love it more every time we do it.

19. Take Alita bowling

20. Composting - I've been doing this. It's not so bad.

21. Lose 10-15lbs  - New, counterintuitive tactic has been to put the scale away for a few weeks (until bathroom is redone). Getting a dog who requires hours (plural) of walking each day is helping, I think.

22. Visit Governors Island - On the schedule!

40. Mammogram - DONE

41. Change to more affordable health insurance - Nearly done, I've been working on this for a long, long time. I never thought it would happen.

42. Train dog sufficiently that he can participate in off leash hours - Suggestions for classes or trainers welcome.

More items to come, I'm sure. What have you been doing lately?

    I took note of #26, get a massage. This is actually on my list for this weekend (bday treat). If you would be interested in accompanying me to Body by Brooklyn, let me know. I have not scheduled it yet.
