OK, I'm first...but, I'm running from the lists, LOL!

Did you get my emails?? I sent you another one this a.m. Saw your note on my post, so please email me so we can get our plans finalized. Judy may not be able to make it on Monday, but looks like you are going to be here Sunday anyway.

Let me hear from ya! Can't wait...we can talk, talk, talk about design, design, design!


Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Great list! I've done a few of your things to do before you die, been to Catalina Island about 5 times...I love it there! Designed my dream house, had an architect create the blueprints, but haven't built it yet due to us not being able to sell our home for what we need. I do own a custom rug biz & have designed a line of rugs & they have been featured in a magazine. Anyway, I'm sure you will achieve all of your goals! It is more powerful now that you have it in writing!If you believe can achieve it!

Love your list. Sorry to hear you suffer from panic/anxiety. I do as well and it has been a real battle, especially since having children. I hope you are finding ways to cope, it can be so debilatating.

Now you and Rhoda are planning a big shopping day on MOnday and I am jealous... well not really.It sounds fun, but Virginia is a little far from where you both are.
Have fun and take lots of pictures.
Your spider was really awful looking. I am not so much into spidery type halloween decorations for that reason.
