101 in 1001 update #44!!
Woohoo finally have some actual progress!! Up to 34/101 - yay!! I'm hoping to be a 2nd 3rd through by the end of 2007 (read: at about 66ish). Two full tasks completed: #90 - Go 1 week without a daytimer or watch and #76 - Go without caffeine for 1 week, as well as a partial: #83 - Try out 10 new restaurants - I'm up to 7/10 on that one!
#38 - Keep a plant alive from 'The Auction' from one year to the next - update: They are still alive.. but one.. barely. My English begonia is really looking bad. I thought it might not be enough sunlight but now I think it might be over watering. Maybe it was sad it's babies didn't make it, I'm just not sure. I hope it pulls though its such a cute prickly plant!
#21 - Save a part of every paycheque - done!
#94 - Read every day - done! I finished (and recommend) 'Artemis Fowl' by Eoin Colfer, what a fun book. I know there are many sequels but I'm going to switch gears for now and read on that is on my List of 20 books to read, Sword-Born and Sword-Sworn by Jennifer Roberson. (really odd,.. I got it as a 2-in-1 but can't find a listing for it). I have read the first four books in this series and I had no idea it continued until I was researching to make my list of 20 books. The first in the series, Sword-Dancer if one of my favourite books of all time. Starting to read them again was like walking into a warm, familar place .. where you knew trouble was going to happen. It's so great.
