Happy Birthday to me!

It's my birthday today. I'm 31. I went out with some friends for my birthday last night and I bought 4 pull tabs and I won $175. I've probably bought all of a dozen pull tabs in my entire life so that was a nice lucky shot last night. I can't decide if that means I am going to have a good year or if it means I used up all my luck for the year. Knowing me .... well, never mind. I'm going to be positive about this.

Here are 10 things I want to accomplish before my next birthday:
1. Potty train Elle. (Or have my mother potty train her.)
2. Get up that second rock climbing wall.
3. Get pregnant again.
4. Buy a Wii Fit. (I want one so much I dreamed about it last night.)
5. Get moved into a nicer, non-drug dealer across the street having house.
6. Sew something wearable on my sewing machine.
7. Take a college class on-line.
8. Buy a hybrid car.
9. Get Joseph a therapy dog.
10. Come up with one more thing to round out my list.

If you would like to buy me a birthday present there's a link to my Amazon wishlist there in my sidebar on the left. (SUBTLE HINT!) But if you don't do that, please just leave me a comment telling me what you want to accomplish before your next birthday.

Now I'm going to go and spend my pull tab loot on a stack of books about Disney World. I'm out of control.

Happy birthday!!!
Before my next birthday, I would like to have a new job, new apartment, and new friends. So, you know, just a couple small goals.

Happy Happy Birthday.

You'd probably succeed in getting the drug dealer in rehab before the potty training happens...

But wait, that was my experience...sorry.

Happy birthday!

By my next birthday I want to have got through minuting the Trial Steering Committee Teleconference without having completely messed it up.

I know that's a fairly petty goal, but my next birthday IS next Tuesday.

Happy Birthday!
By my next birthday I will be 31 and I want to walk in a charity walk. Any suggestions?

Oh yeah - also - there's a boy at our school who has a therapy dog, Gemini - oh she's so pretty, but I can't touch her! Boohoo. Anyway, he's only 4, but is much calmer with her attached to him. I'm sure there's other benefits, that's just what I see.

Also - I just brought (this morning) The Unofficial Guide to Disney World With Kids. I like it so far.

Happy Birthday!!!

Before my next birthday, I want to be healthier. More exercise and less junk food.

Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?

Happy Birthday, Jenny! I had fun last night, I hope you did too!

Happy birthday! That's a great list. As for what I want to do before my next birthday, I'll settle for keeping my children alive and staying sane, but then, I do have to move my entire family halfway across the country before my birthday. Sigh.

I thought your birthday was on the 30th! I was all ready for it! I'm so sorry I missed it, but I hope it was fabulous.

ps. what's a wii fit? What's a pull tag? I can read the words but I don't know wha tthey mean!
