8 x 8

Having now seen this on two of the blogs in my google reader today, I feel compelled to participate. I can be such a joiner at times! Really, I just like lists.

[I'm confused, though: I only see 7 lists? I guess the 8th was the "people I'm tagging" list that I skipped. ?]

First, the rules:
1. mention person who tagged me (no one tagged me, but I linked to the blogs where I saw these above)
2. complete list of 8s
3. tag 8 people (I don't "do" tagging, so I will pass on this one)


And now the lists:

8 things I am looking forward to:
1. retirement someday
2. seeing my sister and 2-year-old nephew in September
3. our upcoming romantic weekend getaway (at a resort 10 minutes from home)
4. our new golden Hunter getting his stitches out next week
5. the new season of True Blood
6. hiking in the fall when the weather is cooler again
7. touring the White House during our vacation in DC this fall
8. petting the goldens today after work

1. bought groceries
2. prepped vegetables for the week's meals

6. took Excedrin and a nap 'cause I had a headache

8 things I wish I could do:
1. get pregnant and raise my own child by birth
2. get to a healthy weight
3. be more organized at home and at work
4. retire early and travel
