I haven’t felt like posting or reading or doing much truth be told for about a week now.  I somehow got a miserable cold that kept me in bed most of the time and am starting to feel human again.  Well yesterday I started feeling better.  Today, much better.  I have managed to keep on trucking, looking for a job though.  I submitted my resume to several places and got a hit today from Craig’s list!  It’s for an electrical office and I’m not going to complain.  It’s right down the street and that’s a good sign.  The pay is pretty decent.  And I can pick up things like THAT so I don’t think it will be an issue.  Ya know!?  I have an interview today and I have a good feeling about it.  The owner has a 4 year old dog that is always in the office so how can that be bad?  I don’t think that it can.

It’s not in insurance, which, I don’t know if I’m going to complain or not.  Insurance jobs are hard to get around here.  I’ve wanted out of insurance to do other stuff and maybe this is that way.  Who knows!?

But anyways.  Hey while you are at it and you’re here, if you look at my 101 you’ll see some Major and I do mean major changes!  You’ll see that the second list is now gone and some from that list have made it to the 101 list.  You know why?  Another spurt of creativity.  I decided that this may be a short term bucket list, but I wanted a long term bucket list.  So I made one.  I don’t have it up anywhere, I’ve only taken a few things from my 101 and my 109 and put them on it.  This is a whole other thing.

Not sure where the inspiration came from, but I’m taking it and running.  Today is going to be a great day!

Now don’t forget to leave a comment and let me know you were here!  I love comments!



Posted in List of changes by Donna on October 16, 2008

Okay so in my spare time I’ve sat down and really looked at my list. Of course for the longest time I was always changing something, but then I decided to settle on what I had. Well today I began thinking since Jo did her list, what is really holding me back on some of mine? I had to sit and take them one by one and decide if it was something realistic. So I’ve made some changes and probably will make a few more but I’m giving myself a deadline of December 1st to have my list completely set in stone.

So here is a summary of my changes
#8 will be to get an address book and use it. I need this more than all the papers I have laying around.
#9 will be to learn to make apple butter. I had this origionally and you know what, I want to keep it.
#13 is to particpate in the Toys for Tots at least once. Realistically, I’m not that into movies right now and 101 would be a stretch for me. I want stuff I can do!!!
#16 is to aquire an Ipod touch and give away my shuffle. I fell in love with Erics and well, if I have to save from now to the end of my list to get it then I’ll do it!
#29 is now to go to the Reagan and Nixon libraries. I wanted to add Kennedy, but again, I’m trying to be realistic. I think two would be good and if I can go to more then it will be an added bonus.
#34 is now to get my passport
#41 is to get fresh flowers at least once a week for 6 months.
#64 is to make a small book of my favorite quotes.
#67 is now just to do one mad lib book with mom. We tried to start on one and well, I want to do an complete new one.
#68 I want to decorate our new place and I really mean decorate. Not what we have right now. And I want new furniture.
#87 has been revised. I’m going to make a list of 25 positive things that I like about me and my body in my effort to become comfortable with me.
#94 is to name my blog, make a banner for it and change the design at least once a month.

So there you have it. The changes so far. I’ve made a couple of others before but they were just additions of something on the list.
