life resolutions. :colorado mom-ographer:

these last two weeks have been rough… fact about me: i am very goal oriented!  i’m a list maker!  i thrive by accomplishing things and checking them off of my list!  sometimes i add things to my list that i’ve accomplished and check them off just to remember what i’ve done…i know it’s dorky, but […]

66. have a preventative mastectomy & reconstruction

67. follow/document a breast cancer patient 9/2009-?/2010

this is really interesting to me, although all of them are amazing! i have been considering number 66 for awhile. especially seeing my mom in and out of cancer, finally undergoing a required mastectomy last july, the same month kinley was born. she is still having difficulties. and my aunt also having a mastectomy and even though they are sisters they had completely different cancers, multiple times.

interested in seeing how this comes out…number 67 that is!
good luck in it all!

fun post! (well not the part about being sick…that sucks). i am a list maker too and todd thinks i’m crazy when i add things to my list that are already done just so i can cross them off. it’s such a good feeling, though! thanks for sharing your goals, including the ones you’ve completed…it’s good to keep those on the list. i never thought to do that, but it seems like it would be a great way to motivate yourself when you can see what you have done. i like it!
