The time limit ran out on my first 101 Things in 1001 days on September 29th, 2011. I give myself a C or “average” score on my success rate. I did a lot of things I don’t think I ever would have got around to because of the list: singing lessons, sewing classes, bike 40 miles, took climbing classes, learned to can things, participating in a 5k, etc. It was great because not only did I have a list of things I wanted to do, which gave my a reason to do them, I also had a list of things Rob could see that I wanted to do, so he could support me. It’s also great to have a record of all of the fun things I’ve done.
This time around I’d like to think I’ve done a better job of crafting my list, but if I do as much and have as much fun as I did in the last 1001 days, I’ll call it a win. I’ve moved the list to it’s own page, and I think I will attempt to make quarterly updates on my progress, because trying to sum up or pay tribute to the things I did do here at the end is kind of overwhelming!
And because a post with no pictures is dull, here’s a picture of us on our recent trip to Oregon and Washington state in August, which was in part so that I could mark off 101in1001#44 travel somewhere (not for family).
