    I'll be working on mine too. Probably much of the 2010 things but a few changes.

    I am working on my list!!

    Are they small things, or huge things? I kind of wanted to set small realistic doable things. Things that will make my life a little better but when combined will make them great!!

    I want in too. I never read the posts for last year until recently. It's a wonderful idea. I've been waiting to see this challenge come up and have been thinking about my list for a bit but have yet to come up with 20 things. Will work on it and be back later.

    Sure! I added a couple extras last year. One was real challenging and fun...learn about classical music and opera. Because I'm on a budget I couldn't take classes at the local university. Also no car to get there in winter. DH takes it to work. So I found a way to use library material and university lectures on DVD. Lots of fun!

    So yeah, long winded, but you can add throughout the year if you wish.
