In 2011 I decided I would track my journey to accomplish 99 things.
I love to make lists and I had seen this somewhere and I thought it was a good idea. I made the list at the beginning of the year and added to it as I went along. I enjoyed it and I was looking back at past blogs and thought I would do it again. I laughed because I had some things on my list in 2011 that I have still not completed and it is 2013. Dang procrastination! I want to start out the year with 99 things. So far I have 66 so I am off to a good beginning. The first part of my list are things from the 2011 list that were never completed.
