101 in 1001

I started a 101 in 1001 last year when I had my own domain.  After I decided to keep this site as my personal/mommy blog, I completely forgot about it, sadly.  I had accomplished a lot of my 101 in 1001 and I have to say that writing this down does definitely keep me motivated.  Especially since I look at it daily.  It actually is very exciting; the thought of possibly accomplishing almost everything on my list.  I hope that I can.  They're important to me.  As I finish something, I may add something in.  Completed tasks will be in red bold and have a (+$5) next to it since I am going to be saving $5 for everything I finish.  In progress tasks will be blue and italicized.
