Yes And Yes And Again Yes

 It's been a while since I've done this so I feel like I need to reiterate the code. Anything in italics is new information on an item. I add new items on at the bottom but don't necessarily italicize them. These are things I'm interested in doing this year there may be some overlap with my Life List but they are different entities.

1. Say yes - I feel as though this has been a good month for this.

2. Buy Flash - DONE

3. Write a book - Writing many books. Might need to change this to FINISH a book to give myself the proper motivation.

4. Singing lessons regularly

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

6. Fix house - DONE  - Although since the joint flooded recently I feel like I'm kind of having to do it all over again.

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

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

10. Go to Blogher - Have business cards, have my badge, have my conference partner, screwing up my courage as I write. The fun starts Thursday!

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) - I've published this once and I know there are more things to go on it. It is In Progress, which I think is as good as done for a Life List since that's what it's supposed to be, in progress.

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  - I've been battling some weird digestive problems recently. It's not so much that I'm putting this on hold as not paying as much attention to it. Trying to eat small amounts of things that sound good to me.

22. Visit Governor's Island - On hold while a regular brunch person regains her health.

    Pretty good for a year-long list. Love that you have 40 things for your 40th year...well, I suppose it's your 39/40 year...still, it counts. Good on you for all of the health stuff.

    Cheers -
