101 Things In 1001 Days

I was going to make this a ‘210 Things to do in 2010′ list, but in looking for inspiration I stumbled upon a ‘101 things to do in 1001 days’ challenge. This seemed a lot more realistic so I’m going to give it a try!
Start Date: December 3rd, 2009
End Date: August 30th, 2012
1)Write 450 posts for this blog (40/450)
2)Knit my family stockings. Turns out this is much easier said then done, or so says the knitting needles I bought 2 months that have remained untouched except to be used as WMD’s by my son. (0/4)
3)Run a marathon. This one was inspired by the contestants on ‘The Biggest Loser’ and my dreams to have Bob get all sweaty running the final mile with me. I’m pretty sure this is exactly how my marathon run will play out.
4)Take a trip out of the country. With one already booked for January 8th I feel fairly confident that I’ll be able to do this one. (Good times)
5)Rachel Ray Week. For months I’ve been talking about doing a full week of recipes from my Rachel Ray cookbook and for whatever reason it keeps not happening. We’ll see who comes out a winner that week, Rachel or the hot sauce. (0/7)
6)Get Sean sleeping through the night.
7)Potty train Sawyer.

  1. You have an amazing list. Best of luck in completing them!!

  2. Wow, you have also inspired me to do this! I gotta take some time and make up the list first... :)

  3. Love your list - and that you're avoiding your housework! :-) I love the Olive Garden - I used to eat there a lot when I was studying in Canada. I wish they had one in England!
