Progress!!!

I know it has been over a week since the last post. We've had some illness run through the Ball house and at various times we were all down for the count. At the start of February I'm so happy to say I've made some GREAT progress on my list. Organizing helped me out a TON. It has made it very easy to keep track of what is happening when and steps needed to get to the finish line. 

When I created the list there were a couple items I already knew were happening and are already booked and scheduled. Those items are: go to New York with Bill (July), Take Leyton to Disneyland (June). Then there are just other things that happen around a certain time, ie: Christmas, Birthday, etc. 

The past few weeks I was able to start or schedule a couple more!!!  Skinny Dipping will happen in Palm Springs. Get ready Stagecoach ladies!!  The tattoo for my Dad is beginning on Feb 12th. I will share more info on that later. Take an Improv class was one I thought would be tough, but I found a Groupon and a friend and I are signed up starting in March. It's an 8 week course and I'm soo excited! I took joining a book club up a notch and started one myself! There are 10 of us and I have already started reading the first book and we are set to meet at the end of the month. Last week I had the opportunity to pay it forward twice, but I will also talk more about that later. Through a friend I also found out about a local open mic event that happens each month in Sac and I hope to finish that by the end of this month. Another that I thought might be tough was a guitar lesson, seeing how I had no guitar....until now!

Introducing "Randy." He's a magical glittery hand me down a friend was getting rid of. Next step, find a lesson!

Finally, February starts no buy month. This means no buying anything for myself or family for the entire month. No clothes, toys, makeup, accessories, magazines, books, etc etc. I can only purchase things we need. I'm also taking this opportunity to try and clean out our fridge and cabinets so I'm not frivolously buying groceries either. I have a friend participating with me so we can check in daily and see how we are doing. 

Overall I feel like I'm off to a great start and enjoying it all along the way!
