Update on 101 in 1001

So here is an update on how things are going on completing my list:

19. Give the dogs frontline and interceptor on time every month (2/34)
I did this yesterday, and so I continue to stay on track!!
22. Apply to a show on HGTV
I actually did some research on this and you have to live in LA to apply to the shows they are taking applications for. But I have a couple of months, so maybe a new one will come out and they'll let people in Wichita Falls apply.

39. Read the first Harry Potter book
I only have 3 chapters left to read. I like it, but I'm not sure I love it enough to continue reading the series.

50. Do a “Wayback Wednesday” post each week.
So, this is officially the first item I will be unable to complete. It was a lofty goal, I suppose, and I dropped the ball this week. $10 to a charity.

81. Get the Johnson calendar up and look at once a week
I love our calendar. It's so awesome! I love writing on it, and it's been a big help in scheduling.

82. Buy dishwasher
We did some research on getting one and I'm just unsure it's going to fit in our old house cabinets. And, the money we were saving to purchase one now has to go toward paying for school. Oh well...

86. Have a garage sale
As of right now, plans for the garage sale have been tentatively made for Saturday, September 12th.

91. Take 10 road trips more than hour away (1/10)

  • Visited Lumberton, Tx July 24-27, 2009
  • SPIM (Summer Party in Mansfield) August 15-16, 2009
We spent last weekend in Plano/Mansfield and it was so fun. We were introduced to the game Quelf, and we actually just purchased it for our own game collection. We went and saw Time Traveler's Wife, and just had a really great time! Shout out to the GFED!

94. Dress appropriately for work for an entire week 4 times (1/4)
So, this entire week, I dressed appropriately. Tomorrow is my FAVORITE DAY! JEANS AND T-SHIRT Day!

So, that's all I got. I am still completely swamped at work, but good news is that the new youth minister has hired an assistant and it is awesome!! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I really need to do my 101 in 1001. *sigh* I don't know if I can come up with that much stuff!

Also, what did you think of The Time Traveler's Wife? We're headed to see it tonight. I read the book a couple years ago, so I'm excited to see the movie!

Sarah, I did not care for the movie much. It was way too depressing (much more so than the novel) with too little of a payoff.

Thanks for the info, Jim. After reading your comment, we decided to stay in and rent the movie when it become available. (Though the savings for us is negligible, it saves a drive to the theatre.)
