Revisit My 101 in 1001

I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the list I made last year. In case you aren't familiar with it the idea was to make a list of 101 goals to complete in 1001 days. I liked the idea because it gives me plenty of time to knock things off. I hate being crunched for time. It's also the main reason why so many times I fail at New Year's Resolutions.

I'm not even half way done with my list. Boo. I fail. :o( I guess I'm not doing too terribly awful. I do have to revise some because we are planning on moving, so no need to put carpet down and paint. Also, my dog is not very good at going for walks. She freaks out. Big time. I'll try it a few more times, but I may have to change that one too. As soon as I come up with replacements, I will post them for ya!
