10.12.10

*

This week has been both good (Christmas decorating and seeing my Dad’s play) and bad. On Tuesday I tripped up our front door step and busted the knee I dislocated a few years ago. The nurse (yup, I had to see a nurse) gave me a whole bunch of ice packs, bandaged it up for support and told me to rest for 2 days. It’s still feeling pretty crappy but no way was I missing my Christmas meal today so I headed back to work. And it was totally worth it.

So this week, I’m doing something a little different to my usual Friday’s Things to Smile About. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been thinking a lot about 2011 and what it might hold. I’ve been inspired by the oh-so-cool Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess and her 28 before 29 birthday list, so have written a list of everything I’d like to try and achieve over the next year. My 10 for 2011. I figure that if I write a nice long list I’m bound to achieve a couple.


Some of these will be easy. Some will take a bit more work (or guts, when it comes to the haircut). But I like to have something to aim for.

  3. This is a wonderful list, and I'm inspired to write my own! Your last to do about a more regular date night made me giggle-we just agreed we should have one, too!

  6. Ouchy for the knee! I have bad knees too (they stiffen up and 'crack') but I've never dislocated either. I imagine that hurts like hell. Hope you get to rest it over the weekend.

    The list is a good idea! It's nice to have some goals, no matter how small they are.

    Have a great weekend - off the knee!

  13. I like your list. The hair is definitely a biggie. :) I spent the majority of my life trying to "grow" mine, and now that it's finally "long" I think about cutting it. Crazy!

    I made a list of 10 for 2010. I wonder if I achieved all 10. I better hurry and check it. I only have a few days left to get them all done.
