Day 30: Everything I didn't do

Wow, this has been quite a month!  I didn't know I had that many words or ideas in me on any one topic!  Actually, I have dozens more ideas that I didn't get to.  I'm keeping the list and I hope to keep challenging myself to focus on the important relationships in my life.

Here are some of my extra ideas.  Maybe they can inspire you too.

mail someone a thank you card
call someone you haven't talked to in a while
go on a date
have a fancy party for the kids
go shopping with a friend
How to Be a Good Guest
get together with someone you don't know well
host a dinner party
Go to a social event alone (practice that small talk!)
give someone an unexpected gift
let the kids plan the day
Do something special/encouraging for someone
kids - play date? (Ok, so I did this one a few times in October, but just didn't write about it.)
Host a big family dinner
deliver fresh baking to someone (instead, my lovely friend Jenn gave me fresh baked bread yesterday)

Have you done any of these things?  Is there anything in this series that you have tried?  I'd love to hear about it!


  1. Great series, Joanna. I picked up the phone and called a new friend to a date to go out together. You inspired me to do that.

    I don't know how you wrote such wonderful posts every day for a month. If we don't see you on the blogsphere for a few days, we'll know why.

    Happy Halloween - have a great time with the kids.

  2. Ooo I should definitely practice that small talk too - it is super important, because practice will help make us flawless small talkers!
