To-do lists

I know it's a little late for resolution talk, but that's OK — because I don't do resolutions. At the start of each year, I compile a list of resolutions and then fail to keep any of them. Hell, I don't even remember what 2009's resolutions were.

The thing I am good at, however, is the to-do list. I thrive on lists, and without my daily to-do list, I'm at a loss. So here are my to-do lists, both for this year and for "someday."

Things to do this year:
1. Start exercising.
2. Save more money.
3. Pay off the car.
4. Budget for art.
5. Develop a plan of action to finish my bachelor's degree.
6. Eat fewer processed foods.
7. Manage time better.
8. Live more with less.
9. Be a good mom.
10. Volunteer.

Things to do someday
1. Go back to school. Finish bachelor's degree and get an MBA. Think about going further.
2. Buy a nice camera. Take a photography class.
3. Build a deck.
4. Build a garage or shed.
5. Plant a garden.

Wish me luck!

I was late to the Twitter party, but when I signed up a year ago, I totally fell in love with it. I use it mostly professionally, connecting with sources and getting story ideas, but I also use it to inform all 850 of my followers every hilarious thing Isaac does.

Here's what you missed in December:

Isaac's new step stool has a cubby hole. In it today I found his Chuck Taylors, a pair of panties and 5 tampons. Isaac has learned how to shake hands. He's been shaking my parents' and my hands for about 30 minutes now. - I thought playing in the snow would be fun. It was not. My kid is on track to spend all but 12 minutes of his toddler years in time out. - Look, ma! No hands! Isaac found out tonight that Max does not like bananas. He does, however, enjoy french fries. Fist time Isaac hasn't cried when I dropped him off at day care! How to make your own wrapping paper. (You will need: butcher paper, finger paint, a willing toddler and patience) Is it sad that my dog has TWO Christmas sweaters? Maybe just a little? Oh well.
