101 Things List Update

November 7, 2008 at 2:37 pm | Posted in 101 Things | 2 Comments
I edited my 101 Things list just a bit.  I won’t do this again, it’s not like I’m going to keep adjusting it if I’m struggling with some of it.  BUT, there are a few things that I’m supposed to do monthly, that I know just aren’t going to happen that often.  Rather than get frustrated that only 2 months into this there’s no way I can meet my goal on these things, I just tweaked them a little.  Here’s what I changed:

#31 changed to clean out the refrigerator/freezer 12 times instead of once a month. This is about 4 times a year.  I’ll admit I probably don’t even do it 4 times a year!  So it’s still a challenging goal for me, yet more reasonable.

#33 changed to go on a date with Jay 27 times instead of once a month. This gives us 6 months less than every month, to allow for those months that are just too busy or we can’t find a sitter or whatever.  Jay was out of town one week last month, and I forgot about this one, ooops!  Better luck this month!

#34 changed to taking a picture of me and Jay, or the whole family, every 3 months instead of once a month. A little more realistic yet way more than we were doing!  (which was almost never)

#91 changed to brush Chester at least once a month instead of twice a month. Then I can strive for doing it more than once, but if I don’t remember, I’m not behind.  He really should be brushed several times a WEEK, especially when his hair is longer, but I always forget, what can I say.   He doesn’t get matted or anything.  His fur still smells delicious. 🙂


So here’s my (pathetic) October progress on my list.  I’m going to pick one or two things this month and try to make a real effort to make some headway on them.
#4 Knit 10 pair of socks. – Finished one Monkey sock and don’t want to make the second.  So I’m back to square one for this item.  I bought a skein of sock yarn though, so there’s that.

#5 Knit 3 items for charity. I started a wheelchair afghan that I want to donate to the nursing home my dad lived in.  I’m making it out of Plymouth Encore using the Plymouth Yarn Company Lap Throw With Top Ties pattern.

#10 Save $100 in change.Added about 50 cents to my total  Woopee.

#30 Memorize 4 chapters of the Bible – 1 OT, 1 Psalm, 1 Proverb, 1 NT. – Almost have verse 1 and 2 memorized of Isaiah 40.  This is going to be much harder than I thought!!!

#42 Declutter: sell or give away 101 material items I own. – I put a pair of my old shoes in the Goodwill pile.  Wow, such progress.

#47 Photograph girls on the 30th of each month. – Hey I never said it was going to be a “perfectly serious picture! 🙂


#56 Eat out at 5 new restaurants. – Ate at Tijuana Rose when in Manitowoc for my annual “Packers Bye Week” trip with my sister Ginny.  It was very good but pricey!  I think we paid $12? for a burrito.


#90 Complete Bible studies using all the methods in my Rick Warren’s Bible Study Methods book. – Started back with 2 Timothy 2, Chapter Summary Method, haven’t gotten very far though!

#91 Brush Chester at least once a month. – Did this once and again he hated it.  He cries!

#99 Finish reading through The Message Bible. – Slow going but I was about halfway through Proverbs at the end of October.
