This is where Eric and I will keep ever-changing lists of what we are hoping to accomplish.  Some have already been done (but continue to be a goal), others we may hope to achieve soon, and still others may be extremely long-term.  The goals themselves are in no particular order.  We’ll strike through any items that we feel get accomplished (while others are life-long goals).

Shared List

  • Live to give back.
    God gave us all we have and we want to live remembering that and sharing our resources with our brothers and sisters who are in need.
  • Maintain a clean, organized home.
    Emphasis on the maintaining part.  Nothing ever stays clean, organized, or done, it takes work.  Definitely a daily habit.
  • Get to where cooking and eating organic, whole foods is easy and automatic.
    We’re getting there.  It just takes learning and practice.
  • Simplify, do more with less.
  • Attend concerts.
  • Go on a canoeing/float trip.
  • Travel a fair amount.
  • Go hiking.

Kara’s List

  • Pursue my passion for writing and continue on my current writing projects.
    Working diligently on a couple story ideas and learning more about the writing/publishing world.
  • Make ceramics/pottery again.
    I miss that pottery wheel and the sensation of creating.  The art and fun is worth getting dirty.
  • Participate in a 5K.
    I’ve never run a true “race” and I think it would be a fun thing to do at least once.  If I get fit enough and enjoy a 5K I can imagine doing a 10K at some point (I can’t really see myself doing further distances).
  • Visit a monastery.
    I’m really intrigued with the monastic lifestyle and would really enjoy visiting or taking a retreat in a monastery some day.
  • Maintain my desired body weight and fitness level.
    Of course this is a lifelong journey, but I am very happy with how far I have come with my physical fitness.
  • Go indoor rock climbing again.
    Get some use out of my climbing shoes!  Plus, I think Eric will love it.
  • Play guitar more often.
    Learn new things.  Have jam sessions with Eric.
  • Play soccer again in some form.
    I really enjoyed playing intramural soccer in college and would love to play again.
  • Learn how to take better photographs.

Eric’s List

  • Go to Ireland.
    Visit my ancestor’s homeland.
  • Climb a mountain.
    I would like to have the experience of climbing a mountain, but nothing too extreme.
  • Be a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist).
    This is what I want to do for a living.
  • Ride a train (in the cab with the engineer).
    I’ve already ridden a train from Nanjing to Beijing, China, but I want to know what it is like to ride in the engine with the engineer.  This could be on a traveling train or a Union Pacific train (which is the one I really want to experience).
  • Maintain my desired body weight and fitness level.
    I have already shed some pounds and I am close to reaching this goal.
  • Go to Jerusalem without being shot or blown up.
    I want to see where my Savior walked.
  • Go on a mission trip to help with surgeries.
    I’d like to do this once I become a CRNA.
