36 in 366

I go to a message board on-line... love it there.

I have been challenged by a friend to do 36 projects in 366 days (LEAP YEAR remember)... so - here is my list.  It's not in order, because I sorted it AFTER I wrote it.  LOL

Do you make lists?  Today is a good day for that - I'm going to start on this tomorrow!

What do ya think?

1. Lose 5 pounds per month for 6 months.
     Exercise using RUSHFIT with 1 day of rest - follow schedule posted on fridge.  Have time scheduled after devotions.
      Carbohydrate Counting - grocery shopping done for January.  Will make a food schedule to follow - figuring carbs 12/31 for each day, will alternate every other day schedule.
      Number the water bottles - 5 for each day... save and refill each night before bed.
     Going to sleep in work out clothes!  (HA HA... Dan doesn't like this one - he said.)
     Need to find hand weights and put them all in the basement.

2. Stick to our church's bible reading plan. 
     OT 1/2 way through, NT through once (for 2 years - to complete the Bible in 2 years).

Christmas Eve

Santa is up at our house - about to stuff the stockings.  For some reason - she was very very tired last night... so she went to bed before everyone else did.  LOL  So - here goes... I'm off the internet until Monday!  (just see if I can).  Have a very merry Christmas, and may God bless you every one!

Over Christmas Break I am....


  1. Going to finish my library (librarything)
  2. Going to do another school schedule - after reading "The Core" 
  3. Going to do a different chore sheet - time to reshuffle the chores
  4. Going to make some hot chocolate, and bread.
  5. Going to do laundry and work on a system... we need a system.
  6. Oh and going to make some laundry soap.
  7. Going to update blogs (school and family).
  8. Going to work on Scentsy Bring Back my Bar sales.
  9. Going to start my 1,000 gifts list.
  10. going to sort through my e-mails again, and this time unsubscribe from all junk mail!  This is taking days.  Crazy!
Not necessarily in that order.

* Funny story about the hot chocolate.  I had a helper volunteer to do this job... they accidently put in 1 CUP of salt, instead of 1 TABLESPOON of salt.    Ehh...  LOL  So - we are done with that - and probably will throw it away.  We'd have to increase the batch by a WHOLE LOT in order to save it... and then one of my friends figured it would probably last me about 6 years.  Ü  So... we'll drink warm tea instead.  (Ironically - I got them all packages of cocoa mix in their stockings - isn't God good?)  

** VERY COOL!  There is an app for the 1000 gifts list!  I've got it started on my Galaxy Tablet.  Woo Hoo...
