Doing a 101 List….Again!

Way back in January my 101 List in 1,001 days expired. That was the month that I didn’t care about much other than surviving. Luckily, I did, and I’m ready to make a new list.

I would like to be proud of myself for accomplishing what I did on my last list. After all, I accomplished over half (or at least I think I did) of my goals. Some of the things that were the most fun were the things that cost the least amount of money.

I wish I could say that this list didn’t have a gazillion things on it that didn’t cost a dime, but that would be a flat out lie. After all, a good bit of these goals are house oriented. In the next two and half years {and a little extra}, I would be pleased if I once again accomplished at least half.

Goals drive me to do more and to be proud of myself when I’ve accomplished something. If you know me at all, you know that I have a Type-A-make-a-list-for-everything type personality. I’ve been that way my whole life.

So here it goes!

So that’s my list! Nothing too major. I did find it ironic as I was typing it that I put lose pregnancy weight and make homemade chocolate chip cookies side by side. Haha!

I seriously can’t wait to get this list going. Oh, and I’ll be honest. My list expired in January, and I actually started making this list before then. SO, I didn’t want to change anything, so I’m actually fudging a little bit on the date. My start date is today, but some of the items have already been accomplished this year.

The way I see it….it’s my blog and my list, and I’ll do what I want. So there! Haha!
