hildegard- I can help you w/ #65 and #66
I'm an American living in a foreign country and you can write me.

For #66.. if you want to change Iraq to Afghanistan-- I have an address that you can use. They take donated clothing, hats, shoes, socks, gloves, etc.. for children of all ages and adults. The military personnel donate the items that they receive to the refugee camps, to the street kids, schools, hospitals, or orphanages.

Okay I have 75 things I think. I was working on them until about 330 am so some of them are likely incoherent...lol. Working on it though.

#1 nag hubby into finishing dissertation
2 - nag hubby into getting a real job with above PhD
3 - quite my job (see #2)
4 - get a per diem job (see #3)
5 - put new carpet in house
6 - sell this house
7 - buy new house
8 - learn to corchet
9 - crochet jelly bean ducks
10 - sew that darn skirt (bought fabric over a year ago and then got really into knitting)
11 - knit MY socks
12 - knit MY mittens
13 - make honeymoon scrapbook
14 - make wedding scrapbook
15 - do dog cross stitch #1
16 - dog cross stitch #2
