101 Things in 1001 Days – The List

This took me a tad longer than I expected to be honest, as I wanted to put things on this list which I?d actually do, versus stuff that just looks good. The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic

See Ya, 2008?

I?ve decided that Twitter and Facebook, hell, all social media, is killing my ability to post on here anymore. So what I?ve decided is to resurrect my former attempt at 101 Things in 1001 Days, using the lovely Miss Zoot?s list as a model to help me from getting too overwhelmed with the list as I did last time.

Off to Vote

Elizabeth?s packing a bag of stuff to keep her entertained in line, and I?ve taken the day off. Happy Election Day!

The World?s a Mess, It?s in My Kiss

My head?s a mess this week? simple things that should be muscle-memory by know have completely escaped me. Work has been killing me, even with this being really the first full week of shortened hours (35hr/wk for the rest of the year to make up for all the overtime that we?ve all had to pull for insane project schedules). Even with these shorter hours, I feel like all I?ve been
