Change all exterior bulbs in my car.

Do them all at once so I don't need to change any of them for a long time.

I finished all the bulbs in my car. I purchased them all the last time a rear light went out but only changed all the ones in back (it was wet or cold or something). I replaced all the ones in front so they're all done. Hopefully, I won't have to change them all again before I get a different car.

Clear out my Amazon Wishlist.

Buy everything or delete it!

I emptied my Amazon wishlist! I ordered about 9 items, some from Amazon and some from (if they were cheaper) and I even ordered one of them used. Then I deleted the other 50+ items and I'll start it over again as I see things I need want.

Take my telescope out of the city.

Use it at least three different nights.

I did this when I was up north last month, I too my little one. It was kind of disappointing for 2 reasons.

  • I think I need a much better telescope to see anything star wise.
  • It was a night with no moon so while it wasn't distracting, it wasn't there to look at either. I'll try the other one some time, but it was a crazy one and I never had a chance to get the larger one together.
