How many of us are “to do list” crazy? I know I am. I have a to do list for my to do list. I must say it is  a very effective tool for me. Something organic about pen and paper that I love.

A recent glance of my to do list was major and I mean major. Client meetings, investor meetings, school meetings, community meetings. My meetings have meetings and out of those meetings, are more meetings.

I just put a 9:30 pm conference call on my calendar today. Like Dana, really?

Enough already.

So as of this moment, I am penciling in some fun.

Yes, people, FUN.

Things I enjoyed doing as a child. Not stuff my kids enjoy, things I enjoy. I am going to the Dollar Tree (because I am cheap) and stock up on coloring books, bubbles, chalk and puzzles.


My daughter will think the goodie bag is for her. Nope.

My son will think I am tripping.


My Bae will think, who knows what he will think.

Being the boo bear that he is, he is likely to join me.


And there are a ton of things I enjoy that I have not done in a very long time. So I invite you to join me.

Put some fun into your life or MORE fun into your life.

I am getting selfish and making my life more about me.

Can’t wait to blow my bubbles, jump rope and do some cart wheels. That is going to be hilarious. Can’t remember the last time I did a cartwheel.

Now, I will be able to say I do.
