List Update

I accomplished 2 more tasks on my list, number 8 "enter a photo contest". I have entered a few on I actually got an honorable mention (Angie and Amy's Pick, they are the founders of i heart faces.)

I am still doing well in the reading books department. I have read, Kiss by Ted Dekker, The Gift by Cecelia Ahern so I'm up to 3 / 5. Right now I'm reading Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind. It is part of The Sword of Truth Series. There is a show on TV called Legend of the Seeker that I started watching online, I really like it so I thought I would check out the books it is based on. So far the book is a lot different from the show but I really like the book too. I've never read fantasy books so this is a first for me. I can't believe how much I love reading now. I used to fall asleep after reading for 10 minutes. Now I can read for longer stretches of time without waking up drooling all over my reading material. It seems as though my brain had to get used to it or something.

I tried something new at a restaurant last weekend. We went to Fatz (yes, that is the name of the restaurant!) and I got grilled shrimp skewers with rice pilaf and grilled veggies, It was yum-o, and as far as I could tell, healthy.

I crossed number 72 "donate blood" off my list. It was very eventful, I threw up and everything! Yay me! luckily, I told the guy taking my blood, "I'm gonna throw up" and he threw a huge hazardous waste bag up on my chest and said "Dude, if you're gonna spew, spew in this" or something to that effect. I'm glad that it happened after he had clamped off the blood so that my blood was still usable. Hmmmm, let's see, anything else?

Oh yeah, number 71, I sent a shoe box with Operation Christmas Child.

Number 77. Get 30 minutes of exercise 3x a week (at least) and 78. Drink 6 glasses of water a day are not going well. Should I say I failed or try again? I think I shall try again!

So, my fellow listers there's my update,

thanks for noticing me

Good Job! Slowly but surely, you will get them all crossed off your list. You still need to read a Karen Kingsbury Book.

I simple watch Legend Of The Seeker because Craig Horner is smoking hot!!! Lol! Otherwise the show lacks a bit....I have read the books though. I am a AVID reader, LOVE it! One of my passions...I just finished the first Harry Potter and it was great! Moving on to a new Stephen King book I think but not sure which one yet! Have you tried getting some kinda of exercise program? It helps alot to have a set schedule of work outs....also, you can get a 2 liter water bottle (I posted a pic on my blog) for $2 at Wal Mart, I hate to drink but ever since I started filling that up in the morning, I'm getting ALL my water in! It helps alot!

You're doing really well on your list! I think I would throw up if I gave blood, too. Needles and I aren't friends :(

And I saw your photo and I loved it!
