Let's try this again...

So I started blogging in 2009, got bored, and quit.  But I love reading other peoples' blogs, and I especially like how they can be used to make lists and keep the writer accountable - very handy at New Years.  I found a great idea at this cute blog and decided to steal it.  The idea is that she has given herself 1001 days in which to accomplish 101 life-bettering tasks.  I, however, decided to just go for the one year plan.  So, here are my 101 things (or close-to 101) - and I'll be honest, most of these things are her ideas verbatim.  I mean, I'm not THAT clever.:
