  101 in 1001
I've been laying low for a bit, fighting off a cold and recharging my batteries with some good wool. Still waiting on the xmas pictures to get developed! But before we got too far into the new year, I thought it would be a good time to post about my 101goals in 1001 days. It's a project that Day Zero put together. I started officially on August 1, 2007, which means I'll be done on April 28, 2010, but since it's a new year, I thought it would be a good time to tackle some of the tasks I haven't started yet, and share my list with the world. Here goes:
