101 in 1001

I've started this really fun project. The home page is here. The basic idea is to make a list of 101 goals to complete in 1001 days. I started on January 1, 2008 so my end date is September 28, 2010. You can see my list on the side bar, but here is a more detailed version. Notice #1. LOL It is a lot harder than it sounds!

At some point this may end up at its own blog. I was trying to decide, but I think this would also be a great starting point for a new Book of Me and there are crafty things on my list, so I'm putting it here. If it starts taking over, I'll reconsider.

Until I figure out how to do strikethrough on Blogger, the red font means done.
