Project 622

I would have a much easier time writing a to-do list of 1001 things to do in 10 days. But the goal isn't to do things I do everyday. I must remain focused as we know this list is for me not the mom in me. In creating a list of things to do for me, I have discovered how important it is to never lose focus of that person that makes me the loving, fun, nurturing mom that I am and consistently try to remain.

So I have come up with 60 things to do before 6-22-2011; hence Project 622. These things are the things I have done in the past and have a strong passion for (#1) or things I've never been able to accomplish (#40), even those things that I can never seem to find the time for (#11).

I hope that you will enjoy reading the stories as I mark things off the list. I know I will thoroughly enjoy sharing the many adventures ahead of me.
