  1. I don’t think I’d even dare try and make such a list, although if I did some of it would look suprisingly similar to yours. There really just is never enough time for everything, certainly never enough to spend with people we love.

  2. OK… so you are me, or I am you? Not sure which but with a bit of tweeking here and there this is my list….plus add on about 100 more things! I am tempted to make my own list but I am also worried that I might just terrify myself into total inaction!

  3. Sounds like we all need about 8 more hours per day. Huh, maybe those hours we spend sleeping??
    And Molly–I keep thinking up new things that I should have included on the list! I am afraid to go back in and add them tho. Like you say, I’d paralyze myself. lol

  4. I feel exhausted just reading the list and I try to have this kind of life, too. I find that it helps to just keep moving.
    Hope you get everything accomplished and most of all, enjoy it!
