and 3 days!!! 

Ok - have you noticed that little guy over on the right??
The jolly little fella that is "waving" ever so kindly and looking so eager to cheer you up?
Have ya noticed him? 

I decided I better take inventory and check my lists... see what I SHOULD have accomplished this month, what I HAVE accomplished this month and where I need to direct attention for the next month. 

I will say, this month has been a bit HECTIC - and if it is any indication of what the year is going to be like... I'd better get on a schedule and stick as close to it as I possibly can....

 so.... REVIEW....

How are your goals coming along?
Have you made your lists and are you checking them twice?
I myspace layoutslists!


  1. I am so glad you posted this as I have needed some inspiration to post something new on my Christmas blog-thank you!

    Thanks also for the ideas. I will get my lists organised soon!

    Best wishes always,

  2. I don't have an actual list, although I would like to get gifts as the year goes along so this way I have most, if not all, of them by Christmas.

    As for the "snowball fight", you can certainly do it as you suggested! You could even look people up if you have their first and last name on whitepages.com and see if they are listed. You would just need to know the state they live in.


It's like CHRISTMAS everyday when I unwrap your kind words! I just LOVE getting secret messages!!! I really have the BEST bloggy friends ever!
