    I think you have done marvelous! Just getting it down leads to taking action. And what fun to get to check off all these “tasks” . I enjoyed following your blog last year… I know about the lagging at the end. The last couple of months I found it difficult to keep my own blog up and running. Sometimes life just gets in the way.
    I have a great way to help you with your Health and Wellness list, if you want to talk sometime :~)
