The New 104 in just 50 Things in 500 Days

The time frame on my 104 things to do in 104 weeks is almost up. I've completed quite a few...finishing them all wasn't really the point...making goals and accomplishing some of them was the point. And I did that. Sort of...I never quite got to 104 items.

Anyway, I retained a few I really wanted to do for the new list and added a few more. So here's 50 things to try to finish in 500 days (that's by February 16, 2012, calculated here). 

#11 under "Things to do" makes me laugh because we STILL have never been completely unpacked since we've been married. Right now we're really close, derailed by a colicky baby and all the stuff that came with her.

Oh and I'm totally copying my blog friend Emily again (what else is new...)...she just posted her new list (which reminded me I needed to finish editing this post...which I started on Sept 6th...ha!). Anyway, she split it into categories. Genius. Her lists is also probably better than mine...check it out.
