This post is inspired by prompt #4 at Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop.  I may have tweaked it a little from it’s original title, ’30 Things I Vow to Do This Summer’ to ‘ 30 Things I Want to Happen This Summer.’  I’m surprised I managed to come up with so many.. I’ll have to come back at the end of summer and see how many (if any!) are accomplished.. They are in no particular order except for no. 1 – which is the most important to me right now! lol.

1.       Most importantly: have the basement finished, and have life return to wonderful normalcy and just the two of us

2.       Finish my hour quota!

3.       Take two weeks off just to relax

4.       Complete all the remaining letters in the 2010 A-Z Reading Challenge

5.       Organize the closet – Set up the shelves and have it look beautiful

6.       Work on and finish the wedding photo-book

7.       Write story to go along with photo-book

  1. It looks like we have a lot of the same goals! I’m kind of curious to look back in September and see how much of mine I managed to cross off! Good luck with all of yours!

  2. Your list is great! Mainly ’cause it looks a lot like a list I’d make of things I need to accomplish over the summer . . . what with the losing weight and eating fresh fruit and organizing and everything! :)

  3. Been soo busy and haven’t had a chance to reply – Thanks to everyone for stopping by and reading! :)

    Kimmers ~ I know! I want to compare in September. Hopefully I can at least do a third of them.
    Melissa ~ Hahah.. Probably why I’m always tired!
    Full Time Mommy ~ I’m definitely going to make #10 a priority :)
    CoffeeJitters ~ I think that’s going to be the hardest, but like you said, it’ll be worth it.
    Brandi ~ Seems like lots of us have the same goals.. Nice to know there’s others out there :)
