My 2010 Done List

I compiled a "done list" each month for 2010 and now I'm trying to decide if I want to do the same for 2011.  I write weekly updates that cover most of these things, but they are much more lengthy.  I did enjoy looking back at this concise list and realizing how much I had accomplished.  I think I gain most of the same though from scanning the past year of updates, so I'll probably discontinue the practice.  Here are some of my favorite accomplishments from 2010 though :)

Organized Scott Powell lecture in Seattle
Tempered chocolate (lots of tricky temperature modulating)
Skied with Andrew (my challenges with this sport are the stuff of legend)
Saw Olympic skating (a delightful dream come true)
Hiking trip (first of several outings we organized to include friends)
Cameron met his Athlete buddy, Jordan, for the first time (loots of coordinating efforts on my part)
Took Cameron to his first drive in movie theatre
