2011 To Do List

   Ok, so I pondered and looked back and these are the things that I want to do this year. I have put some of the items from last year's list that I didn't complete and of course added to them. I hope that you have also decided what your goals are for this year. I call them goals because I don't like to call them resolutions, how many of us really even know the real meaning of that word? I didn't, I knew it meant to resolve to do something, but I looked it up and it means much more. Here is the Websters definition for it:
 a firm decision to do or not to do something : she kept her resolution not to see Anne any more | a New Year's resolution.
• a formal expression of opinion or intention agreed on by a legislative body, committee, or other formal meeting, typically after taking a vote : the conference passed two resolutions.
• the quality of being determined or resolute
 My list is a "To Do List," goals that I hope to accomplish this year, but they are things I pick and I am in no way bound to them.  So these are not New Years Resolutions and I hope that you have decided to join me. As I said in yesterday's post, I hope that you have made your own list and link it below.
