101 Things in 1001 days

I first found this idea over at Our Crazy Adventures in Autismland. I thought it sounded great! Here are my 101 Things I want to complete in 1001 days. As another blogger said, as a Christian, God can and probably will change some or all of these goals as He see's fit. It has been fun putting it together and one of the 'things' is to organize the list. It contains a variety of items from vacations, to ministry, to many organizing desires. It also includes some 'stupid' stuff such as buying disposable coffee cups that folks can take from the house because I am always saying "I need to get those." But I don't go get them! (#84) I may group the organizing into another mini 'thing' and add some other items at a later date but this is a good start. I plan to put this on my sidebar as well. I should have put that as one of the 'things.' LOL! (There are X's on some that are a tad more personal.) There are also probably some repeats...let me know if you see them! (For some reason when I publish the '#'s" turn to bullets. any idea why?? anyone???)
