Update on 101 in 1001

The picture above is how I feel..’AHHHHHHH’ ! I completely forgot that I was doing this challenge! I am a little scared, because I only finished 27 things on my list. I have modified my list because a few things were more realistic than others. It is hard to know what you can and can not accomplish with in a time frame.

There were quite a few things I finished, but since I wasn’t keeping track of what this challenge I had no idea I had accomplished them. I need to finish three things a month if I am going to get to my goal! *the under pressure song* comes to mind.

What I want to accomplish by the end of this year is…

Oct / Nov/ Dec ( need seven things accomplished)


Turn off electronics for a day
Don’t get on facebook for an entire weekend s/su

Spend an entire week with out getting on Facebook


Finish baby blanket for AB

Frame some photos


Sense and Sensibility

Things To Do

Start a snow ball fight

Update: I had a *lightbulb* moment. I will attach photos under every accomplished task on the 101 in 1001 page that way you can see it. I will continue to update every 3-6 months on the progress of this challenge… or basically when I remember to ;).
