Back to the Future

It's now officially the year Two Thousand and Ten.


Is it just me, or is there this aura of mystery and living "in the future" around this year? When we were kids, movies were made about years beginning with "Twenty". "What will you be doing in 2010?" seemed to be such a far-off question. But far off it is no longer. Here's what I'll be doing in 2010. How about you?  I'd love to hear answers from everyone who sees this . . . just leave me a comment so I know where to go read your answers. :o)

1. Keeping my inobx EMPTY.

2. Continuing to eat a 98% raw diet.

3. Purging more than a decade's worth of stuff.

4. Keeping only what I'll use that I love and/or that will make me happy while I use it.

5. Designing (personally) and constructing (not completely personally) a carriage house, in which we'll live until the house proper is complete.  Seven people in a 24'x 36' apartment should be F-U-N, right?

6. Designing said house, and seeing how much we need to save before we can begin. ;o)

7. Putting in a garden large enough to help significantly in feeding my family.

What seven things are you going to do this year?

A great list Annalea! I need to have your #1 on my list. And add spending less time on the computer to my list -- I haven't had time to make a list 'cause I've been reading everyone else's!

I know what you mean about purging. My husband and I have been trying to do that on and off for the last year or so. It is scary how much stuff we've collected. I is slow going, but we've often got a box to go to the thrift shop each time we leave the island. Good luck. I'll be back because I am quite curious about your 98% raw diet...
