Day 18

#1 - Continuing to read. In Leviticus. Plodding through.

#22 - Haven't reported on this one yet, but so excited for this.... We make regular monthly payments through a credit consumer counseling place, and I have to say, I love the company we are with. They are totally wonderful to work with and I'll even give them a plug -- American Credit Consumer Counseling. We did have to cut down our payment this month, which is a bummer. But this is the only month we'll have to do it. We are slated to have all our consumer debt gone by November of 2009, then the car is done after that, then the house, then the student loan. But the house and student loan don't fit in my 1001. But that will be very exciting to only have those two debts left!

#42 Taped Bandwagon and Silk Stockings tonight. When will I get to watch them?! It couldn't be tonight because the whole family went to the Y (#28)

#94/#97 Last night we had girls' night. Tasmin wanted to dye her hair brown, so while we waited for the color to set, I did Maggie's toenails and she did my fingernails. She's getting better at it! That was a fun night.

#76/77 Haven't started any books because I am still finished Mull's "The Candy Shop Wars" and thoroughly enjoying it. I really have a lot of reading on my list. Not too sure how practical that's going to be. Although, I do love that it will force me to read more. Other things will get weeded out of my day eventually!

I scared myself the other day reading some other lists that people have posted. Someone commented that you have to be finishing a goal every 10 days! Good grief! That means I'm already behind! At this moment, I only have one thing crossed off! However, I do realize that making progress on several goals every day means that, really, I could get several items crossed off on ONE day, when that happens. Right? For instance, I'm watching movies while I work on afghans. And there are several things on there that can be accomplished completely in one day -- like serve in a soup kitchen or read at Homer Davis or empty the birthday box. So I'm thinking this is still do-able.

Day 9

#1 - Finished Exodus today. Lots of wonderful things I learned this time. I loved when Moses received his calling from the Lord. He kind of argued with God about it, and he kept getting put in his place about it. "Moses, you're doing this. Quit giving me excuses. I'll make it so." I feel like that in my calling sometimes too. And then at the end of the book when all the wise hearted people bring too many donations to the tabernacle and all the wise hearted people work on the building of it... Willing hearts... Wise men seek Him still. It is so wonderful to read and be touched by the Spirit. So much great learning.

Don't know my other numbers...
But I looked up Turner Classic Movies on the TV listings and I'll be able to hit my 10 classic movies easy from there.

We watched XMen III tonight as a family and I had grand intentions of working on Tasmin's afghan, but it didn't happen. It's only the second time I've seen it, so I watched.

Day 8

#1 Almost finished with Exodus. Loving this. Love that I'm reading every day. I just can't go to bed without reading my scriptures. But today I couldn't get started without reading. That was great.

#28 Am now weighing in at 168 so I have eight pounds to go to a mini-goal of 160. When I hit 150, that will be the goal of losing 30 pounds from my ultimate high of 180. (Well, if I'm totally truthful, I hit the ultimate high of 185, but I wasn't there for long. That number got me to do something about it!) Still not finding time to be active too much during the week, but not eating after dinner except on Monday or Sunday night, whenever we have treats for Family Home Evening, and that really is helping a lot. Also, I'm not eating seconds at dinner at all and that has been huge. Every day I do crunches (only about 8 at once) and pushups and squats. I know that combination of things is helping me keep the weight coming off slowly, but consistently.

#29 Got bathtub cleaned out a little bit (it's storage right now because the piping needs to be fixed in there). I know we won't move forward on this project if it's stacked high with boxes! Matt drew a little picture of an idea he had how to take care of things in there. LOVE his idea of the shower with the entrance on the side instead of in the front by the toilet. Nice.

#42 Cyd Charisse died today. I was going to watch Brigadoon tonight, but am blogging instead and then hitting the pillow (since I already read!!). But that's not on my list because I've seen that a bazillion times. But now Bandwagon is on my list. Have to rent it or check the library.
Love the internet. Just googled Cyd and found out Turner Classic Movies is devoting June 27th to her -- Bandwagon, Silk Stockings and Singin' in the Rain.

Day Four

#1 - I am reading everyday, but won't list it every day.

#90 I sat and looked at my shelves today in the bedroom. I created a list of the 11 babysteps I think it will take to actually consider those shelves "de-cluttered". I actually found myself excited about the possibility of it looking nice now, looking forward to starting, instead of dreading it. Yippee!

Day Three

How exciting is this?? I had updates on each day in my dell, but am going to combine them in one. (I don't have to be completely anal about this...)

#1 finished Genesis (June 11 -- yeah, I started before Day One, but we're carrying on...)

#89 located all the notebooks and folders - a great babystep (June 11)

#93 (this is the best part)
1. June 10, 2008 Temple sessions for Mary Elizabeth Kyle (my great-great-grandma) (BCIE)
2. June 10, 2008 10 baptisms
3. June 10, 2008 temple session for Maria Mersedes (temple name, E)

and then TODAY, June 12
#87 put all this on BLOGGER! Check that completed!!

June 2, 2008 Almost ready!

It's a week away -- my day! I'm so excited. I do have to go back and change up my list a little bit. I have many trips and things that aren't just a stretch time-wise, but money-wise. One of our family goals is to see ourselves out of debt and that will happen with all but the house, the car and the student loan by December of 2009 as long as we stay on track. So I want to change out a few of my trips and replace them with other things. I like someone else's idea of having about 10 alternative goals for life happening and not being able to do something for one reason or another. So I am off to update my list for the last time.

I have been making scripture reading a real part of my day (not just a cursory chapter to check off my list) in the last few months, so that it has become a wonderful habit that I look forward to and rarely miss anymore. That will help me to get through the Bible (#1) as planned. But I've also discovered that I have this deep love for the Book of Mormon (okay, actually I already KNEW that, but didn't realize how much I'd miss reading THAT if I was ONLY reading the Old Testament... ) so I have to figure TWO times into my day to read so I can read from both.

Had a hard time coming up with the old classic movies list I want to see... and have discovered without a specific time to sit and watch movies (which we were trying to get away from over finals time for the kids) that I don't crochet at all! There is a lot of crocheting on my list and quite the list of movies, too, so they will go hand in hand.

I'm sure my list of books is much too long. Count of Monte Cristo and Book of Mormon in French will be quite an undertaking on their own, and then I have the entire list of Newbery! I think I will mark it to 10 for this go-round.

My kids are all excited for my Harry Potter movie-thon when #7 comes out.

Oh joy. And now that I re-read my list of traveling... they are all in Arizona except for San Diego, Disneyland and the beach -- and that's one trip anyway. Can't do Disneyland without hitting the beach and vice versa! And Matt and I are planning on San Diego for our 20th anniversary next year, so I think we'll make it all happen anyway! What a lovely realization!

I just love my list!
