Good Riddance to 2009!

Wow, could there be a worse year than 2009?  Just to update, we lost one pregnancy in February and then another one in November.  What a way to lose all hope and joy.  Ok, ok, I have to stop thinking about 2009 and look forward to 2010.  I think I need to come up with a bucket list (and no, there's no imminent death).  How often have we all thought about things we'd "like to do someday" but never do it?  I'm going to put these things on a list and give myself a one year deadline to doing them.  Of course, I'd love to have the cure for cancer or world peace on that list, but these are just things that I've wanted to do (and am ABLE to do) and  some are just frivolous things that happen to be important to me.

2010 List of things to do         
take 1 picture per day- I love photography but I need to get out there and find interesting subjects in my everyday life to capture.

knit a vest- 5 years of knitting and all I have to show for it are some hats, cowls and scarves?!  Come on, it's time to bite the bullet and make some clothes!
Maybe, I'll start with the honeycomb vest?
knit a cardigan- (for the same reason as above). Maybe the tea leaves cardigan?
plan two long weekends away- we need these.  We plan big trips away, but neglect to take some short spurts of time away, especially when things get hectic.  Plus, it's time to finally go to a cute B&B in New England and look at the fall foliage (perhaps while knitting a sweater??)
work out or go out for a long walk at least twice a week- because I'm fat!  I lost some much needed weight this year and gained it back.  It's time to bite the bullet and get cracking!
Blog- I like writing.  I'm not great at it, but I think it's a great way to vent and I need more of that, especially given this lovely year!  Plus, I hate reading someone's blog only to find that their last update was in 2006!
