101 Things in 1,001 Days

Today I'm embarking on a mission to complete 101 Things in 1,001 Days. I have made a list like this before, but did not succeed.  So this time, I'm going to blog about it to keep myself honest.  Plus, as you will see "Start a Blog" is on the list, so we can cross one item off already!

Some items on my list will be easy, some are more of a stretch, some are necessary and others are just silly.  But altogether, I think the next 1,001 days will be interesting.
