P. S. Check out my essay in my alma mater's alumni newsletter.


  1. Inspiring list - I will steal some and add a few like grow something (herbs?), use library (rather than amazon) and check one off for me - decide on a blogger ID!

  2. Andrea, you're already the most patient person I know.

    I know; I do that. You wrote it down so you can cross it off immediately.

  3. A very ambitious list! Mine will be shorter.

    Love the essay!
