Updates and Write Offs

I have 134 days until my 101 in 1001 list is to be completed, and it's looking rather, um, not finished. But let's update first, shall we?


10. Eat at 10 local restaurants I've never eaten at before.

  • 9. Bad Daddy's Burger Bar
  • 10. Buffalo Wild Wing
  • 11. The Palm
Finished this one, and added an extra for good measure. And because the food at #10 was nothing to write home to the internet about so a #11 was needed.


26. Go on a picnic.


Check. On a warm December day we took advantage of the crazy weather (and the fact that Charley was having peanut butter crackers for lunch and outside = less mess to clean) and had a picnic in my parent's front yard.


40. Visit Charleston.


Back in October, Charley and I made our way down to Charleston to meet up with a couple of our friends. It was the first time I'd been to Charleston since our 8th grade class field trip, and I plan to go back ASAP! Oh, and Charleston is prettier than the background of our picture suggests. This was actually at the rest stop we stopped at on the way. I was a poor picture-taker that weekend.


66. Find, get, and like a new hairstyle.

LOVE wasn't part of the requirements of this one. But I'm an overachiever because I LOVE it.


67. Go out and play pool one night.

& I've still got it. I can kick some major booty on the pool table and can't wait to own my own table one day soonish.


And that's it. I think that brings my totals up to this:

46 items are completed.
5 items are started but not yet finished.
4 items are in the works.
40 items are not yet started.
And these 6 things I'm going to go ahead and write off, meaning according to #36, I will be donating $5 to charity for each of these things.

81. Go swimming in our neighborhood pool 5 times.

Um yeah. No longer living in said neighborhood, and new "neighborhood" has no pool. Fail.

91. Make my Christmas cards one year.

I won't have another Christmas between now and the end date so this one is impossible. I technically did make my cards on Shutterfly or whatever each year, but that's not what I meant when I made this so I'm not letting myself off the hook.

92. Babysit each of siblings’ kids so they can have a free night alone.

My oldest nephew is now 15 and doesn't need to be babysat any longer. I don't know what I was thinking when I came up with this. Maybe I was trying to earn some good babysitting karma so that when I had my own child I would have siblings lined up to babysit her?

57. Dress up for Halloween.

Halloween will not come again before this is over, and this year I spent all of my efforts on Charley's costume.

54. Go to a haunted house.

Same as above. Although there is a year-round haunted house at Myrtle Beach I could go to if I really wanted to, but nah. I'm too much of a chicken these days anyways.

75. Beat Super Mario Galaxy II.

Another one I have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote it. I never did beat the last level and now it's been so long since I've played it I am positive I wouldn't even be able to beat the first level.

So, writing those 6 off, and writing a check to March of Dimes for $30.

Speaking of March of Dimes, I'll be walking in it this year in honor of Jen and her sweet boys Dylan and Noah whom I talked about here. Join my team if you'd like!
