8th Quarterly Report: 101 things in 1001 days

I rocked the final winter of my challenge to complete 101 things in 1001 days. I finished 11 tasks, reveling in trash, haggis, Pez, roller derby, snowshoeing, Spam, and more.

In the coming months, I hope to complete a trapeze class, go to some offbeat museums, clear the clutter, and take the kids go carting. Here comes the spring!

    What a great blog! I’ve just been thinking about getting out of my comfort zones – well, actually for a couple of years! – now that my kids are getting older. I’ll be back!
    Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment 🙂

  2. SO impressive!!! It’s so awesome to read about all the things you’ve been able to cross off your list. Fantastic!!

  3. You are doing so great with your list! I’m thinking about starting a new one. There were several things on my first one that just weren’t gonna happen in the time span (stupid unexpected stuff). Keep rocking it lady!!!!

      Thanks, Shannon! Good luck with the new one if you start it. I have been thinking about what I will do when I finish this one; I don’t think I will start a new one, but I’ll just do whatever random new challenges come along.
