preliminary marriage goals

Things I want to do after I get married:

- Start reading for pleasure again
- Begin a little garden
- Become more experimental in the kitchen
- Be really savvy with money
- Use the public library so much that I get to be on a first-name basis with the librarians
- Volunteer: after-school program or animal shelter
- Yoga once a week with husband
- Start writing again
- Write letters to friends
- Keep lots of plants in the house
- Try painting again (something should happen with that gouache)
- Run
- Pray with my husband every morning
- Become a better blogger
- Get plugged in with a great local church
- Develop a calligraphy service on the side
- Keep a clean, simple house
- Hike the Appalachian Trail, all the time
- Memorize scripture
- Go on mini-adventures with Guion on the weekends
- Explore Charlottesville
- Did I mention I'm going to start reading again?

This is such a great list, Abby! You know I'm partial to the "get a dog" goal, but I love that you want to be on a first name basis with the local librarians! I cannot wait to keep up with your post-married adventures!

When i saw "GET A DOG" i mistakenly read "EAT A DOG" which was disturbing. Immediately figured it must have something to do with Earth Day, but after a second glance i relaxed . . . Talk about being experimental in the kitchen! ;)

Wow: you are SO ambitious. It's inspiring.

& just a side note, not so much "telling" you to do this, but really a self note. Really research what kind of dog you are getting..haha. We got a lab (from hunting lines) right after we got married. I'm surprised we didn't get divorced within 6 months. Haha!

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
