    You may not want to learn too much about him, because you may begin to hate him. I have a love hate relationship with him. Works best that way 😉

    I find making lists like these (especially on the ‘more of’ side) works better for me if I do it with a calendar in front of me (even one down to the hours in the day/appts. sort) and actually write them in with a specific time so that the things that I really want to do don’t get lost in the clutter of all the other stuff I end up doing. All of these come under the header of “Making Time for Me” – and if you actually don’t set aside time for YOU, then it’s really hard to make them happen for yourself. As women (FOF and younger), it’s really easy to get “Me Time” eaten up with doing stuff for other people, which is very nice but doesn’t get the “Me” stuff taken care of.

    Ha! I love this. I am sitting here eating a giant block of cheese and thinking that should be on my “less” list.
