Update #5

August 22, 2012

I’m slowly marking things off of my 33 by 33 list.  It feels good to finish stuff and I’m already getting ideas for my 34 by 34 list.  I’m down to 29 now and after going through the list there are some things that I need to start working on (quilts, for starters).  Hopefully in the next week or two I can get into my sewing room to get it started!


1. Dye a blue streak in my hair. 

I haven’t touched this yet.  I need someone to help me because I haven’t ever bleached a part of my hair and I would prefer not to mess up.

2. Lose 1 pants size.

Done, but I’d love to lose another.

3. Fit into my wedding dress.

Not yet, but I’ll get there.

4. Become proficient at back wrapping Deuce. 

I’m getting there, but I’ve recently started practicing a different carry and I’m really not good at it.  Must continue to practice!

5. Renew my teaching certificate.

Nope.  I do need to look into the classes offered and see exactly what I need to do.

6. Go to a Ranger’s game in Arlington.

We’ve talked about it, but it may not happen this Fall.  Maybe next Spring we can go (when the weather is better and the boys are older).

7. Get the office organized and keep it that way.

It’s gotten worse lately.  It’s currently housing some trash and recycling from the baby gate I installed at the bottom of our stairs.

8. Decorate our bedroom.

Unless baby toys and a Goodwill donation box count as decorating, no.

9. Finish the wall hanging for That Daddy.

Nope.  I should clean my sewing room before I get started on that.  The room is a mess.

10. Learn the correct lyrics to Love Me Tender.

I’m getting close!

11. Learn more about homeopathy.

In progress.  This week I even made our own Elderberry Tincture (ready for use in 1 month)!

12. Donate at least 100 ounces of breastmilk to the Mother’s Milk Bank of North Texas.


13. Clean my side of the closet.

I need to get back in there and try on more of the clothes.  Some of them I’m having a hard time parting with because I may wear them some day.  I need to be realistic and part with some of them.

14. Donate at least 33 items to Goodwill.

I’ll put the box in the van tomorrow so I can be done with this already.

15. Get a new tattoo.

Not yet.

16. Plant our garden earlier next Spring.

This is time sensitive for later.

17. Read at least 2 classic books.

I need to pick out something other than The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.  I also have some other things I need to read.

18. Learn to can and can something successfully.


19. Volunteer at H Money’s school at least once.

School starts back next week and I plan to fill out the volunteer form as soon as I can so I’ll be ready.

20. Barter for a service or a product of some sort.

Not yet.

21. Sell some of my sewing/craftings.


22. Make Deuce a quilt.


23. Write monthly love notes to my boys. 

August is done.  I really like doing this as it’s a nice way to keep a good record of the kid’s development and a way to remember good stuff That Daddy has done.

24. Journal for myself.

I have lots of other blog ideas that I need to spend some time writing about.

25. Send cards or call on all family birthdays.

August is done.  I should look ahead to September so I’m not sending anything late next month.

26. Make all cards by hand or use cards we already own (save Christmas cards).

Doing it.  It’s nice to use what we have and fun to see the random post cards that have made it into my collection.

27. Make homemade coconut ice cream that tastes good.

Done!  I found a recipe in a cook book and we made it a couple of weeks ago.  We just bought more coconut milk to make a double recipe as it’s even good after sitting in the freezer.  I’ll share the recipe later.

28. Read to my boys every day.

It doesn’t happen every day.  If I were to combine it with read or sing to my boys every day then I’d be set.  We sing lots of silly made-up songs every day.

29. Find new home for my too-small shoes.

Not yet.

30. Participate in both Just Between Friends sales so I can get in early.

In progress for the Fall sale.  I have most of my items entered to consign, I just need to print the tags and attach them.

31. Ditch DirecTV.

Done!  Our Roku and antenna arrived this week but aren’t installed.  I’ve been getting my TV fix with streaming Netflix.

32. Make 1 completed quilt for Project Linus.


33. Journal about my 33 by 33 along the way.

In progress!
