Week 10 Summary of 51 Things List

. at . 2 comments

Life is whirlwind busy – I missed posting summaries for Weeks 8 & 9.

During these weeks I did the following:calendar

  • Downloaded the doctrinal questionnaire to become a licensed CM&A worker. This questionnaire IS A long and hairy beast to complete. I have sent out requests for transcripts and recommendations. I still need to complete the doctrinal questions.
  • Scheduled an appointment with my seminary advisory. We figured out the classes (about 11) that I need to complete in order to graduate June 20th, 2009!!!
  • Planned a camping trip for July 27-30th at Lake Tahoe with some of mi familia.
  • Did 4 Random Acts of Kindness: (1) Did someone’s job before he could – cleaned up the Sunday coffee area (2) Did a friend’s dishes when she was gone from the house (3) Gave $20 to a friend so she could buy a birthday gift for someone. (4) Sent a funny get well card to a child I do not know. I am not telling you these things to brag, but so that it could spark some ideas for you, in case you want to do your own RAK’s. Go here for more ideas.
  • Spent several hours at Ocean Beach with my daughter. It was overcast and cold. First time I ever walked on the beach with my shoes on. We collected dozens of sand dollars.
  • Special time with my daughter – spent the evening at the opening of her first juried art show. Lots of great student art to appreciate. The best part of the evening was that my daughter won “Best Installation.” Go here to read her post titled, “I Won.”
  • Crafty thing for May was making corsage pens for women at church for Mother’s Day. We made corsages with silk flowers that were red, pink and white and then attached them to pens Go here for instructions to make a pen with a sunflower.
  • Chip and I picked up trash. Plus we went on many walks together.
  • God sent extra money so I could tithe to the Building Fund and Missions general budget or special projects.
  • Joined Facebook and Twitter – both of these are outside my “internet” comfort zone.

What have you been busy with that will make 2008 a year to remember?

    Great news about the art show!

    It’s encouraging when you list your progres…gives me some hope! :o)

    Right now life is all about researching phonics programs for homeschool and preparing for the conference this weekend and retreat next. I need to keep focused on the short term goals for the moment.

    You kniw Theresa,
    It’s when I sit down, think and then list what I’ve accomplished that I realize WHAT I have accomplished.

    I’ve also noticed that having a list and looking at it FREQUENTLY helps me to remember to put it into my life.

    Accomplishing those short-term goals help you with those long-term ones. Great job.

    Hopefully you’ll share what you discover regrading phonics programs (we used sing spell read and write) and the homeschool conference. I LOVED going to those conferences. My dh never went with me, but I imagine it must be great to have him along to make decisions together.

    And to have time away together. ALONE amidst hundreds. 🙂
