Jan, I will be making a new list. I just had to keep looking at this one to make sure I was getting something accomplished. I remember back in April when I made the list it seemed like a mountain of things to do. My plan was to start early and take little steps. I feel pretty good and surprised that I've gotten most of this done. Yea for the (me) the babies! LOL
