2006 To Do List

It's that time again. I'm about a week early in posting this, but I'm ready, so here it is.

I decided that 2006 is The Year of Fun. Each of you are responsible for having as much fun as possible, for working to make your life fun, for finding the fun in the middle of a bad day. Life is too serious and too hard otherwise. Do it for YOURSELF. Make your life what you want it to be.

So, I only put items that i want to do on this list. No stretch goals this year, nothing challenging even. Just fun things or things I want to do.

I challenge each of you to do this for 2006 and post your list. Lemme see!

Here's mine:

1. Apologize when I should.
2. Attend church at least six times.
