Normally, I am making New Years resolutions this time of year.   I'm not going there this year.  Instead, I am plugging along at my 101 in 1001.   I am participating in a 52 books in 52 weeks challenge, but that will fit in with one of the items on my list.   Here are the items I completed off my list during the year of 2010.

8.   Participate in NaNoWriMo - Completed 11/27/10 - I wrote a 50,000 novel in one month!!!  Now, this isn't something that will be published without a lot of work and editing, but it was an accomplishment nonetheless.

10.  Pick apples - Completed 9/23/2010

18.  Paint the Kitchen - Completed 8/27/10

26.  Make 2 shoeboxes for Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child (one boy, one girl) - Completed 11/8/10

52. Ride on a big ferris wheel - Completed 5/20/10 at Cedar Point

53.  Tell scary stories around our own backyard fire pit - Completed 6/24/10

55. Learn to make bread (without a bread machine) - Completed 9/29/10

57. Dress nice/wear makeup every day for a week - Completed 4/25/10

67.  Switch to all natural beauty products - Completed October 2010 - Switched for about a month.   Was not happy with the results, so I've switched back to at least some chemical laden supplies.    I figure it may kill me, but at least my hair won't be greasy and I won't smell, LOL.

69.  Complete one furniture makeover.  Completed 9/10/10

70.  Spend a rainy Saturday afternoon having a classic movie marathon - watching ones I've never seen.  - Completed 9/11/2010  

I didn't get as far as I had hoped, but I still have two years to complete my list.    The pregnancy threw me off a bit.  

I have several that I am in the process of finishing.   I am 3 books away from finishing #59 - Pre-reading the boys' readers.  I should finish that within the next week.   I am on day 110 of my project 365.   I'm also still working my way through the Bible.    We hiked 3 out of the 10 state parks this last year, and visited one of my three gardens.   We found 2 of the 10 letterboxes.  I also bought all the supplies to make soap and am waiting until after the baby is born to try that.  I have 25 items on my list of 100 things I love.  I've learned how to make my own pie crust, and have made several pies.  I haven't put the delicious stamp on one yet, though, but I'm close on that one, too.   I also bought a sewing machine ... now I just need to learn how to use it!

Did you make any resolutions this New Year?
