...like a zebra in the night

Oh, hello February you sneaky little minx. Here I was just getting used to the idea of January and of 2014 and bam! you're on my doorstep with Groundhog Day waiting for the news of shadows tomorrow (p.s. - Cathy Z made a hilariously great groundhog day printable).

My birthday is about 6 weeks away and it has been a couple of months since I checked in my list for the year. Looking at it now, it's clear there are many that just aren't going to happen. Numbers 1, 12, 22, & 24 for certain are out. Number 13 is highly unlikely in the time span. Number 10 just might possibly happen before then, but I've been promised it will happen in 2014 at some point. So I'm not bothered. And even some of the other ones that aren't looking likely don't bother me. This has always been a list of "stuff that would be great" not "stuff that must happen or I will be unhappy." I'm content with where this list is. Would I have liked to see more Broadway shows while we were living < 5 miles from Broadway? Yes, absolutely. But my life continues quite happily! I'll check up with this list again when the deadline has passed, but I don't think it's going to change dramatically between now and then.
