2014 To Dos

From the looks of my Facebook feed, I'm not at all alone in my joy of seeing the end of 2013.  It's been a hard year here at the Costanzicacelli household, both as a family and personally.  There have been car accidents, health issues (both canine & human), financial surprises, and much much more.  There's also been good though; we now have Admiral Gilligan T. Costanzicacelli, Andy has his pimp daddy minivan, and many new learning experiences under our belts.  The most important lesson I want to take with me and impart upon my boys from 2013 is to stop comparing one's own life with others.  It's zapped a lot of the the fun I could have had (or at least caused some of the non fun I did have), and it's time for that to be done with.

Without further ado, here's The Costanzicacelli 2014 To Dos.  This year is going to kick so much ass (if only by me making it so through sheer willpower)!
