     I'm really excited to get started on these goals. I asked Brian if he was interested in seeing my goals, but the look on his face was "ohmygoshwhatisthiswomanaskingme", so I'm not sure if I will bug him too much about it.
      Oh, I started this past week with the Wii and I've done five days so far. Today will be six. Yee ha!
       
       
         
         
        And the tutorial is moving right along. I'm up to page 12 now and I've drawn the templates for the patterns. Next I have to take a bunch of pictures of in-progress shots and write up the steps for the different patterns. 
         
        update: I'm done with all of the pictures... I think ... now it just time to write, write, WRITE!

        2. I did mine and got a great deal accomplished. My 1001 days ended October 18th, 2010. Some of the things I no longer felt the desire to do or it was no longer important and other things like "put the laundry away" was desperately important. The laundry issue was conquered within a few weeks and I maintained the habit.

          Have a great time on your list.

        3. Kristin - thanks so much for letting me know that you actually accomplished your goals! I did try to consider the "no longer important" factor with making my goals, but I don't know that I can tell at this point what I'm going to consider unimportant then... (I suppose if my husband died I wouldn't have a date night with him...) (eew)

        4. I love how different/various your goals are, yet similar at the same time. Does that make sense? I am going to steal some goals, ones I have been thinking about. Hope you don't mind. Love my calender.
