Updates Coming!

I have a bunch of updates from list items I worked on this past weeked, just need to get the photos off my camera!

Coming Soon:
* Clean Pantry
* Quality Time w/ Nephews

And tonight I'm making chili for my (at least) one home-cooked meal of the week. Of course, today is the one day of the week that it's going to be up past 80 degrees, but whatever.

I'm getting closer to finishing my list, too. Coming up with these last 15 or so items has been much harder than I thought. I'm trying to be deliberate about what I add to the list--I don't want to add things just for the sake of reaching 73. I want to be sure these are items I really want to complete, and that will help better my life in some way. I think I'll re-order the list to put similar items together. Maybe that will help me brainstorm.

#9: Cook Dinner

K's family has a Christmas Eve tradition of eating Italian Sausage in rolls for dinner. Last Friday night, after dinner at Mandola's, we looked for some of their "homemade" spicy italian sausage, but they had sold out for the day. We happened to stop in at Oakville Grocery when we were walking around The Domain the next day, and found some pre-packaged Niman Ranch spicy italian sausage. I cooked up two of the links that night, and made the other two last night. Served with mustard and cheese on the Pepperidge Farms soft rolls we bought, they were delicious. K even proclaimed them better than his mom's Christmas Eve dinner. Score one for Mrs. Monkey!

Jumping on the Bandwagon

I'm jumping on the bandwagon to join others participating in the 101 in 1001 Project. Reading over a few lists from some inspiring ladies--plus the realization that I have a big birthday coming up in a little less than two years--urged me to create my own list. Since that big birthday will arrive in 730 days from what I'm considering my starting point, I decided to do 73 in 730.

I have already started working on the list, despite not having a full list of 73 goals, plans, and dreams yet. I just can't resist a good list!
