(Whole List on My Blog)

Some completed Goals...

Here are some of my completed goals...
#36 Organize basement so that I can get out our exercise equipment. Well the exercise equipment is out now if I could just motivate myself to actually get on it.

#38 Buy a new sofa and chair or maybe a sectional for living room. Well someone gave us a sectional so I gave them a penny for it to make this goal a complete....

#47 Go to GYN.

#48 Get tubes tied, unfortunately due to health restrains this is not happening but finally got the birth control worked out so I am no longer miserable all month instead of just for one week a month. Hopefully working that out will count as a complete.
#49 Get my teeth fixed. I did it they look awesome I will try to post pics if we can, cost to much and I looked like Mike Tyson beat the crap out of me but vanity is what it is plus I can eat meat again even though my first attempt at sausage was not pretty.
#55 But a garden gnome. Got him at Giant, my grocery store, he is so cute.
#80 Read every Harry Potter book, does not count towards my 50 books for #79. I even read Tales of Beedle the Bard but I am counting that one as one of my 50 for #79.
#95 Leave a huge tip to a waiter/waitress. Well it was actually a bartender but they served us food so technically they were also our waiter.
Will be posting a list of goals I am currently working on soon.

My List

xposted to mission101


Hey Guys. beddgelert here. (May I request a username tag?) I’m 24 and from England. I was inspired by audiopineapple’s list to have a go at this. Mind if I join you wonderful peeps in the recounting of your epic 1001 day quests? I keep tweaking my list but I think (hope) I’ve finally settled on one to stick to. I have three spare spaces just in case :)
