My 101 in 1001

Ok, so I'm dedicating a whole blog to my 101 in 1001 list. I'll be referring back to it often, so I figured I'd just put up the whole thing. I've already accomplished one of them even though I wasn't planning on launching my list until January 1 or 2008.

"101 in 1001" stands for 101 things to do in 1001 days - which puts the due date as September 27th, 2010. That may seem like a long way off right now, but it'll come fast! If you're making your own 101 in 1001 list, PLEASE let me know! I am excited to check these off as I go and see other accomplish their goals also! Yay for list-ers!
