List’s revisited

here’s a little update I Love List’s revisited
Things to do with Paul before deployment this summer
  1. sometime around march i’d like to go to Tokyo and Disney Land  (may or may not happen, it’s sort of doubtful though)
  2. we really need to snorkel more (it’s getting warmer, so soon)
  3. scuba certification, even if we only get to scuba a few times (not gonna happen, but andrea and i are gonna when she comes out here)
  4. go camping, at least once (going to try to do this still too)
  5. go on a CREDO retreat (not going to happen)
  6. Spend a day in Naha, on foot, exploring (it’s been raining every weekend but this will happen!)
  7. workout together, about once a week. (ummm… no)
  8.  learn basic Japanese (yeah not this either)

Things to buy for new house
  1. rugs (we are okay without these for now)
  2. pantry cabinet (made everything fit without this, which rocks because we dont have room for one)
  3. shoe cabinet (more of a shoe shelf, but i like it)
  4. night stands (maybe, we just got new ones but i may use those as end tables in the new house) (sticking with the once we have)
  5. bathroom stuff for my bath, i’m thinking white, crisp clean white  (bath looks good in white)
  6. guest room provisions (we’ll have to save up for this one) (not yet)
  7. Craft room/Alana’s office stuff (sewing machine, other crafty things) (this is coming together but not there yet)
  8. Curtains house wide (i will actually probably have to make these since the windows are very small, but that way they can be exactly how i want.  (found curtains and they wern’t too expensive either)

Rules for the new house (these are the hard ones)
  1. dishes will be done immediately, no more waiting three days to do them (well they dont get done right away but they dont sit there for days either)
  2. alana cant ‘nest’ (this is where i make a mess in one spot, of dishes, magazines, coke cans, blankets, i do this often) (i dont nest too much, just a little)
  3. clean up after yourself (this sort of happens)
  4. laundry will be hung up on clothes line unless its raining (i’m good at this)
  5. laundry will be put away as soon as its dry (i’m pretty good at this)
  6. no stocking up on food (it’s one thing to be prepared, but i more than enough food to feed several armies in my pantry right now) (were pretty good at not buying too much food)
  7. the dog cannot go out alone (she really doesnt, i usually watch her from the door)
  8. the cat cannot go out at all (and he doesnt)
Rules for school
  1. i will devote at least one hour a day to school work , per class, and not wait until bedtime for this hour (mmm… sort of)
  2. i will not wait until the last minute to do my homework (pretty good at this)
  3. i will study every day (almost every day)
  4. i will not try to do homework in front of the TV (well we dont have tv anymore so not an issue here)
  5. i will get at least B’s because i can do it. (so far so good!)

  1. I see that you are good at hanging up your laundry. You should consider getting a clothes drying rack then you can air dry your clothes all the time. It saves me lots of money and I know it is good for the environment.
