Am I Listing Enough?

Just in case you didn't get enough of my listing capabilities yesterday, here's my monthly 108 in 2008 check in post.

Updated info in italics. Anything that's fully complete just has DONE by it. There are 7 DONE things and a number of others that are in process so I feel pretty good about it all so far.

1. Get regular vocal coaching (see also #14)
2. Record 2 more tracks for CD (Sometime in 2020 you'll all be getting the finished product for Christmas.)
3. Night Before Christmas for fam (make a book? buy them? convince this guy to illustrate a version and help him publish it?)
4. Continue Floor Barre classes - Going well thus far. I think I hit a new level last week when she started working on something new that I don't do very well but still used me as a good example.
5. Add another hour per week of exercise (3 sessions of 20 minutes each per week) - I need to start recording this. I think it's happening but I can't tell.
6. Submit Chekhov or Speed Dating play to 20 places - I think the Speed Dating play will go far. It got good response this weekend. Now I just need to figure out where to submit it to. Any ideas?
7. Book Shakespeare 10 places
8. Go on a date - If I go speed dating will that count for this?
9. New Year at the steam pipes
10. 2 field trips with Alita

34. Install Final Draft (script writing software) - Peter Weekly said he'd help with this.

36. Continue Weight Watchers eating plan (Woof, getting back on this wagon has been a pain in the ass. I'm hungry again! - I've wobbled a little this weekend with the show being on but it turned out OK. 3 more lbs to go. I feel cautiously optimistic.
37. Meet goal weight of 125 (shooting for March completion, first weigh in on Monday) - Was at 128 on 2/18.
38. Check in on this list once per month - So far so good, wrote it in Jan and checking in now in Feb.
39. Re-do work files
40. Keep work files current (part of me hates that I have j.o.b. goals on this list but another part of me thinks it's something that'll smooth my brain out so it's a good thing)
41. Clean out closets
42. Set up home filing system
43. Gyn appointment
44. Dentist appointment
45. Buy scanner - I think I'm getting gifted one of these, Pony Express seems to have, er, acquired one for me.
46. Scan family photos
47. Auntie Blanche's birthday (98 on August 23)
48. Trip to beach
49. Post photos to Flickr (upgrade to pro account?) - I've decided to use the gift card Dad gave me for Christmas to upgrade this (and I'll still have money left over) but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.
50. Invest 1/2 savings
51. See accountant in person
52. Re-work investments to maximize return
53. Sort out IRA contribution
54. NaBloPoMo (Nov)
55. Go to Brooklyn Museum
56. Update address book - Sending out the publicity for the show was good for this. I was able to get rid of some bad addresses which is a start and I spent a little time on it this weekend since it was something I could do while lounging on the couch. Lounging on the couch was required this weekend.
57. Make Christmas cards
58. Take more photos (practice makes perfect after all) - I've been taking some, a few I'm excited about.
59. Learn more about how I'm taking those photos (suggestions welcome)

67. Make out will
68. Inquire about grave plot
69. Renew passport
70. Submit for print audition (actors access?)

72. Write Aunt Rena once/month
73. Write Auntie Blanche once/month
74. Cook once/week (doing this is integral to being able to do #64) - Totally been doing this. Totally been hating this.
75. Go to Cyclones game (Kath has said that I can tag along on one of their trips this summer)
76. Take all vacation days
77. Make new cookbook pages (this may morph into making another homemade Christmas gift)
78. God's Love for Thanksgiving
79. Solve electric meter problem
80. Write on something significant (short story, play, etc.) 15 minutes/day, 5 days per week - Was going well when I was writing for the show but now that I've been rehearsing not so much. Must get back on bandwagon.

83. Physical warm-up 5 days/week
84. Pay extra mortgage payment
85. Get facial
86. Record financial outgoings faithfully (see #96 re: Quicken) - Stumbling along with this a little.
87. Get Elvis's ultrasound (May)
88. Complete at least half of the items on this list (I'm so meta)

90. Change over to those swirly energy saver light bulbs - I bought some, haven't installed yet, though.
91. Host Supper Club
92. Host Brunch
93. Get lip biopsied - I have an appointment to do this on March 6, along with a full-body mole check which will take forever since I'm genetically moley. ("My sister is covered with moles.")
94. Wear sunscreen every day (this just throws off my whole schedule, I had no idea it would be such a pain in the ass) - Doing it. Hating it. Also wearing a lot of hats.
95. 30 minutes per week home improvement (above and beyond my definition of maintenance cleaning)
96. Learn how to set up a new "me" in Quicken (Any Quicken experts out there? I took a look at it last night and I don't know if I know how to do it right. And I want to know how to record cash purchases, too.)
97. Go to one participatory music event for the holidays
98. Finish sending out 2007 Holiday cards (I'm 2/3 done!)
99. Re-organize kitchen cabinets
100. Apply creams/lotions/oils/ungents to scar daily - Doing it. There must be a better way to get Vitamin E oil than squeezing those fucking pills. Anyone know what that is?
101. Get new digital camera (if you can't leap into a big, proper one then a point & shoot that does low light and night shots) - More on this a little later.
102. Send birthday cards (preferably before the birthday)
103. Travel once outside of "event" trips (birthdays, Christmas, lobsterbake etc.)
104. Floss thrice weekly - My novelty floss dispenser sits in my bathroom mocking me.
105. Move Music and Photos to desktop Mac (Any insight on a simple way to do this is also highly appreciated.)
106. Leap more often (as opposed to plan, plot, think, prepare ex. I just decided to produce an evening of work by my female friends and the next day I sent out an e-mail.)
107. Make at least 1 of the books in #60 a non-fiction (maybe the Omnivore's Dilemma, definitely not Fast Food Nation. Probably better if it's not a food book at all. I have enough trouble with food already right now.) - I read Sin & Syntax so this is DONE. I happen to have a couple others lined up, too.
108. Finish this list. DONE!
