I woke this morning before the kids and I am sitting here at my kitchen table in a perfectly still, quiet house.  The rain is falling heavily outside and the sky is dark and gray.  It's two days after Christmas and I'm feeling the urge to renew.  Renew myself, my spirit.  I checked into blogland this morning and found that many of my fellow bloggers are re visiting their lists from this past year.  List of their accomplishments, things they have yet to finish and thibgs they would like to do...well, here goes mine!
