101 Things in 1001 Days Review
Sorry to disappear for more than a month! I haven't had blogging mojo at all. I've been spending my time knitting, reading, cross-stitching and making new jewelery. I have loads of pictures to share, but first, I have to share my old 101 things list and how I did, and then present the new list 101 things list for 2009-2011.

I had a lot of home routine, organization stuff on this list. I found the list to be very helpful throughout the 3 years. Every couple of weeks and sometimes months, I would look into the list to pick up a new task. I had recurring tasks like haircut/trimming nails/carwash, etc. and I was constantly reminded of them. Many of these things I never have time to do, yet they take minimum amount of effort on my part. With the list I started writing down when I did something last - like for monthly task I'd write the month, for yearly I'd write the year I did something and then be reminded of it again while browsing the list. I had to start over on many of the tasks (cleaning bathrooms, for instance, was the worst task) because I kept missing a week or two. Eventually I kept a bi-weekly maid service for that LOL! But for the most part I did actually get into a habit of doing the tasks right off and crossing off items felt great. A few items became obsolete and I replaced them with other tasks.
I use Google Docs for a lot of the lists, wishlists, etc. It is really great. It allows me to be able to access my lists from anywhere and I'm able to do some simple calculations in the spreadsheets. This format worked great for the 101 things list too. I have made the new 101 things list and it will be revealed here tomorrow.
