30 by 30

So, I'm turning 30 this year.


Actually, it doesn't really bother me.  I'm still young(ish).  I have enough stamina to deal with Things 1 and 2 (which is an affectionate nickname I have for Bug and Cat).  But I feel like it's kind of a big deal.

There are lots of things I wanted to accomplish before age 30.  Some I have, some I haven't, and some...may be doable.  We'll see.

But, I have decided to copy my dear friend and editor, Jennifer Harris Dault, and make a list of 30 things to accomplish before my 30th birthday.  You can see her list here.  Her birthday is shortly before mine--I'm an October baby--and while I don't have a lot of time, I figure I can always try.  I have stolen a few from her that I really like.

Here's the list I've come up with so far:

1. Lose 15 lbs--the rest of my baby weight from both children:)

2.  Get Cat sleeping through the night, preferably in his crib.  (You have no idea how good for me this will be.)

3.  Give away 30 things.  (10 down via Freecycle!)

4.  Complete two chapters of my book with Chad Thomas Johnston.

5.  Potty train Bug.  (Again, this is for me.)

6.  Take a sewing class.

7.  Do something physically adventurous.

8.  See my best friend.

9.  Collect enough flip-flops for my TerraCycle project.

10. Watch 3 movies that I have never seen before.  (This will probably be one of the hardest, alas--watching a movie isn't easy!)

So I need to come up with 20 more.  Any suggestions?:)
