10. Continue exercising the "no" muscle - I hear it gets stronger with use.

9. Let go, move on, forgive, and heal. (Think: Serenity Prayer)

8. Learn to procrastinate - not everything needs my immediate attention - some things will just take care of themselves if given the opportunity. That's what they tell me, anyway.

7. Go visit my friend, Terry. Sit at her kitchen table in my jammies 'til noon, drinking coffee (decaf. now), and laughing with her and her family until my sides ache. For days.

6. Walk/talk/laugh/analyze/process/grow/challenge/share with my dear friend, Kathleen, 3-4 times a week.

5. Be nicer to my husband - not so stingy.

4. Have more sex with my husband (see #5).

3. Laugh. Laugh my *&% off. Big, deep, can't catch my breath belly laughs. Frequently, if not daily.

2. Replace judgment with compassion.

1. love.

And how come everybody gets to visit Terry but me?

Happy New Year Carrie!

Greta list, of course. I fully support #7, I wish I needed #8, and really all of it is good. :)

Love from Seattle.

Let's all meet at Terry's for a slumber party. Otherwise, Michelle and I will just have to get together on our own.

Great list. Good on you.

Happy New Year to all of you. Are you going to do the countdown on the Ducks scoreboard?
