Birthday list progress

I've been making some pretty significant progress on the Birthday list lately. Here's the update...2...this months book was the worst book I've ever read in my entire life. If you need something to put you to sleep at night and insult your intelligence, read Winkie.

4...paying toward truck. I made an extra payment this month and am hoping to put the majority of our PFD money towards it too. I should be able to have it paid off by the time I'm ready to write next years list.

5...only 2 pounds to go! A friend of mine put it in terms of 30 pounds being 6 five pounds bags of potatoes and ever since then I have been imagining it that way. When you think of it like that....WOW! 30 pounds is huge!

8...thinking about driving down to Mexico while we're in Texas over Christmas break. I need to do a bit more research about how safe it is these days to go into Mexico, but I would love it if Avery could get a stamp in his passport.

10...ordered the herb garden today. I'm excited about growing my own herbs...only problem is...I have no south facing window so I dont know how they will get enough light this winter. We'll see how it goes.

12...getting better and better at SIOP. My lesson plans are getting better and better. I feel like I'm a better teacher all the time.

16...still doing meatless monday...this week summer squash pancakes, fried zucchini, zucchini cake...last week zucchini quiche, green bean casserole, pear crisp...week before eggplant parmesan, rye garlic bread, green salad.

20...possible amusement park in texas. Never been there. Christmas break plans are still pending, but I'm looking at buying our plane tickets sometime soon.

26...ordered the 1 year bible. It's in chronological order and broken into 365 parts so that you can read it in a year. I'm really looking forward to it!

28...possible road trip down to mexico during christmas. We'll see!

If i get all of this stuff done then I will only have 5 things left on the list that I havent done yet.

Do a LOT of checking before you decide to take a trip to Mexico. I havent set foot there in about 7 years. You couldnt pay me to go back. About got mugged after buying blankets and then was almost yanked out of my truck. Now, this was in Juarez over the El Paso border, but I was never so scared in my life. Isn't worth it for me.
Hope you decide to visit!!! Let me know when your plans are firm!! Looking forward to it. Oh, by the way....I've adoped a little dog! I know, I know. But it's been 5 years and a friend couldn't take care of him anymore so I took him. He's a Boston Terrier named Jasper. He's so cute.
Keep in touch.
