Connecting the Dots with Curious George

Sometime ago I picked up a journal with a picture of Curious George on it. Mainly used it to jot down books I was reading or movies I wanted to watch. Then it transitioned into a book where my husband and I would have a beer at a pub and write down on random pages every so many years -"Exciting Activities We Want to Do in Our  Life".  I've determined this book started before kids because there is mention of a desire to bike ride across France for 3-4 months in '99 (maybe 3-4 months was pushing it with our corporate jobs in the dot com hiatus before all knew it would bust) but we did squeak out a month each time in 1998 (ahead of schedule ;+}) and 2000. Then I noticed somewhere along the way there was a break. Nothing written or dated.  Ooops - twins arrived in 2001 - they say the first 3 years are the toughest - imagine that -  the next entry when I put the year in was 2004!
