    Jenifer, that’s a subject for a future post. Unfortunately, it’s quite a story!

    Ilana, looking forward to seeing your answers!

    I loved reading over your list and thinking through some of the things I’ve done and haven’t done… Running a marathon and hitting a home run are completely out of my league. So is quilting :). But I could replace some of those with things like: Eat gelato more than 5 times in one day or Have a Cary Grant movie marathon!

    Hope you have a very happy holiday. Wishing you the best for ’09!!

    Marilyn, you should make your own list! Gelato, yum!

    Happy Holidays! :-)
