101 in 1001

Well, as most of you know I have an addiction! I'm addicted to blogs. Mostly photography blogs but, some are friends. Well while reading a blog (Rachael Earl Photography) I found a post called 101 in 1001. I was intrigued! So after reading the post I knew I wanted to do this! It's like a bucket list but, you only have 1001 days to do it (that's about 2.7 years). Perfect for someone who is quite the procrastinator! So after sitting down for about 1.5 hours I was only half way through! That's when I turned to the internet of course and found a website called Day Zero is where hundreds post there 101 in 1001 lists! So I started clicking away and got some great ideas from others and about 3 hours later, a diaper change, snack time for the kids, and a potty break I was finished. Here is my finished product!

The Mission: Complete 101 tasks in a period of 1001 days.
The Criteria: Tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching!
Timeline: January 21, 2009 thru October 19, 2011 (This nifty date calculator helped me figure it out!! )
