101 in 1001

As I stated in my 1st post, I had another blog that I deleted.  On that blog, I had what is called "101 in 1001."  This is sort of like a bucket list, but on a much smaller scale.  You list 101 things that you want to accomplish in 1001 days, which comes to about 3 1/2 years.  When I first heard of the idea I was so excited!!!  I started writing things down that I wanted to do and I easily came up with 101.  I posted the list on my other blog and I would read it often and felt so good when I was able to cross something off.  I want to include it on this blog as well.  I am going to put the list below, but I am also going to put a link to this post on a tab above in case you would like to see my progress.  I started my 101 in 1001 on 09/09/2010 and the 1001 days are over on 06/07/2013.
