30 @ 30

Hello everyone,
It's good to be back. I've taken an unexpected mini-break from the blog, twitter, and facebook to just sort of unwind from the social-network web and focus on other things. I've done some much needed spring cleaning around the house, watched episodes of "The Tudors",  done some reading, yoga, and have started running again. I think it's good to step away from our normal routine and focus on other things every once in a while. It does help keep things interesting.
So, with my extra time, I was got to thinking about my  29 things to do before you're 30 list, and how I enjoyed it, and thought it would be a good idea to write another one. I guess I enjoy setting mini-goals for myself, and it's sort of fun to challenge yourself by writing down those "I wish I could do that.." task.  Also, I sort of enjoy writing lists. It's silly I know, but it helps me get my "stuff" done.
So here we go..
