Wow! You are one goal-oriented, organized woman. Great list for 2009 and I think you did quite well for 2008 considering you had a baby and all. You go girl!

Thanks for this schedule, it's a good kick in the pants for me. I used to do this, but got off track and have become more "reactionary" than organized.

I also think you did great in 2008 - baby included. So I have no excuse just doing grandma duty 3 days a week.
