101 in 1001 Check-In #1

101 in 1001#1

Six months ago, I created my first 101 in 1001 list. If you’re unfamiliar with this type of list here’s a brief description: brainstorm 101 goals you have for yourself and work to accomplish them in 1001 days (click here to see my full list of goals). In this post I will share all of the goals I have completed, which ones are in progress and a few “big” goals I need to get cracking on.

    This is so cool! I think I’m going to start this.. I guess my first one would be “Complete the 101 list.”

    By the way, I should mention that you’re my favorite blog.

      Been answered al8\day&#r230;\eI had my daughter sit on the unit the other day (7 years old, 48 inches tall), and her toes barely scrapped and she had to sort of try and push them down. Any child at near the height limitation 50+ inches shouldn’t be falling asleep anyway?\\
