Can someone tell me where 2010 went?   Cheesy

It's time again for a new round of to-do lists.  

How it works:
1. Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the Winter (Summer in the S Hemisphere).  Please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.
2. After the solstice, periodically post updates and progress reports on this thread.  
3. I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.
4. The fun ends on the last day of the season, when we'll start a new thread and whole new lists.
5. Most important: Have fun!

Remember, this to-do list doesn't officially start until December 21st, but feel free to begin posting your lists now.

Good Luck!

Spirituality

6. One devotional act a day - come one, that is not too much to ask!

The perpetual list of failure and shame is here again.

3. Get HMD products pared down, organized and inventoried.

Creative Projects/Fun Stuff:
1. Begin revision of Odinsdatter.
2. Post regularly to all blogs.
3. Finish the pile of fairy wands.
4. Read at least four books.

Health/Wellness
1. Kick winter depression/SAD's butt by:
    a. Exercising outdoors two hours each week.
    b. Nourishing body properly, including vitamins and healthy food.
    c. Keep "work" time under 60 hours/week total combined (day job & PT business).  
    d. Scheduling at least one day completely off each month.  Spend it doing something fun.
    e. Performing a daily candle ritual or meditation to stay grounded.

Spirituality
1. Deal with the mess that is my herb cabinet.
2. Begin converting spirituality-related notebooks/journals into organized blog posts.

Can someone tell me where 2010 went?   Cheesy

It's time again for a new round of to-do lists.  

How it works:
1. Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the Winter (Summer in the S Hemisphere).  Please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.
2. After the solstice, periodically post updates and progress reports on this thread.  
3. I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.
4. The fun ends on the last day of the season, when we'll start a new thread and whole new lists.
5. Most important: Have fun!

Remember, this to-do list doesn't officially start until December 21st, but feel free to begin posting your lists now.

Good Luck!  

First year I've posted.

1) clean my house, get back in the SHE box, hopefully I won't get pregnant like I did that last two times I did it.  Of course, hubby's had surgery since then. . .

2) read my religious books that I have

3) Start doing solitary ritual again, new and full moon, and sabbats.

4) work on mediation three days a week

5) start keeping my food diary again.

Good Luck!  
Goals
1. Move to Massachusetts
2. Get a job in Massachusetts
3. Submit a poem for publication somewhere.
4. Figure out what spiritual path I'm supposed to be following, because the Celtic and Hellenic deities I've worked with have sent me the world's sweetest "Honey, I'm not who you need," letters.

I think that covers the material, creative, and spiritual needs pretty well. I'd like, metaphorically, to get set up for planting season.

If you are referring to a statistics class, then I wish you much luck.  I had to take it this semester and ended up dropping it.  It wasn't pretty.
