  1. well I will be yoour first follower to get you off to a good start Cathy :=)

    My DH was 44 on Sunday so don't you worry, you are still very young! I turned 40 in March and haven't done half the things on your list, but I don't feel too shortchanged lol! And turning 40 is better than the alternative!

    Good luck


  2. Your list is kinda hard to add to cos its a bit vague ... read 100 books??? visit 15 counties? According to your SMART where is the Specific? And with two boys, wont you be making 2 birthday cakes a year? Bit shocked by walk outdoors once a month ... I walk (the dog) three times a day! I suggest: raise money for charity; grow a 10ft tall sunflower; get to level 10(?) in a computer game;

  3. What a great idea to keep a list of things to achieve!
    I have done a few of mine (although they were never written down) maybe they might spark an idea....

    Swim with dolphins
    Visit Boston, MA
    Whale Watching at Cape Cod
    Visit all 6 states of New England
    Do "Go Ape"

    Will be keeping an eye on your progress! Enjoy it!
