My 101 in 1001 Goals


I’ve done it.  I’ve finished my list of 101 goals.  That was kind of hard to think of that many things; it’s not that easy to think like future me would think.  I did leave 3 blank on purpose so that as future me grows, I can add them in later.  Or if you have any good suggestions that I want to add, I have space to do that as well.  Most of my goals are craft related; but that’s who I am and what I do.  I’ve tried to think up goals to involve C1 as he grows, but I don’t really know what he’ll bee doing at that point so that was kind of hard.  I’d also like to have a baby, but there is no guarantee as to when that will happen, so I can’t really make goals based on that.  Some I copied off of Husbands list; he started one, but I don’t know if he made it to 50 or not.  Some of my goals I hope to exceed my set number.

I will be crossing off one of my tourist type goals this Saturday; and I am working on a tutorial for this blog, so that will be one of my many I’d like to put on here.  I’m starting today; what better day to start?  I’ll keep you all updated as I make progress on my goals.  I hope you try this adventure with me; and keep me posted on how you are doing as well.
