101 in 1001: The Almost End

101 in 1001: The Almost End


The end is in sight! Only 26 days until the end of my second 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge. It’s been a while – my last true update was at the end of 2016 (oops). There’s quite a few things to cross off my list, so this will be a pretty bare bones update.

To date, I’ve completed 53 of my 101 goals. I know, I know, I’m barely squeaking past the half way mark. I’ve got another 13 that are in progress. I’m certain I can cross a few more off before my deadline next month.

This is where I’m at:



#7 Have a day out with J

#9 Take a family day trip spending less than $75 – Thanksgiving 2017, when we rode our bikes down the Welland Canal and watched the ships!

#41 Watch a fireworks showCanada Day this past summer we finally took the boys to see the fireworks here in town. They absolutely loved it!


#59 Watch 10 movies I’ve never seen before

#66 Create a smash journalSo it’s a little off track, but I’m going to sub my bullet journal in here. I’ve been bullet journaling for close to 3 years now and it’s fantastic for keeping track of everything and in general helps to make my life a little less stressful.

#61 Join a club/group – I was complaining about how I never got around to doing this when Dave pointed out that I did join a club – I’ve been a member of the Woodstock Cycling club for a couple years now and Dave and I take full advantage of The Pines whenever we can get out there.

#71 Make a “Canadian Bucket List” – You can see my Canadian Bucket List Here. And not only do I have a list, but I got to cross a few things of the list when Dave and I took our trip out west in the summer.

#83 Clean up and organize all the toys in the house every few months

#93 Work only 5 days a week during the regular season – It’s only taken 10 years, but I can honestly say that I now have Thursdays off (ok, most of the time). Having that time to spend one weeknight with the family makes a huge difference. It’s definitely makes me feel like I’m missing less at home.



In Progress

#46 Make a rag rug – I think it looks kinda cool! Almost there!

#76 Mail out Christmas cards – I’ve started the making part, not the mailing part yet!

#87 Attend a dance workshop or course – I’m at a solid 3 our of 5, and I suspect I won’t be completing this goal. But I attended an awesome 3 day teachers workshop this past summer, as well as a pointework course back in the spring. So just getting back into the habit of attending at least 1 or 2 courses a year is what I would call a win.

#96 Learn the Advanced Foundations and Advanced 1 work – I’ve learned all the Ad Foundations! It’ll probably be next summer before I get to Ad 1 though.


So 26 days….48 goals left… Safe to say I probably won’t be crossing them all off, but hoping I can at least beat my finish from last time, which I think was 61. It’s the journey, right?
