I read this on another blog, and just a few days ago I was reading the rules at the meme's home. As my readers should know by now, I LOVE checking off completed tasks, so I think this project would be AWESOME for me... So far, the most difficult thing has been to come up with 101 things that I want to complete in 2.75 years. The idea is that "tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined". As I complete each one, I will be making a post of it with the number of the task Im completing and photos and what not, about the task! Feel free to join me and let me know if you do!

I think this is a big challenge and Im merging in it some lists that I have made in the past for New Years solutions, the Blooming Buds strategy, as well as the Working on Healthy buds posts.

Estás Super Duper loco.

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

LMAO!! And yes, I am... Just a bit, though... I have to confess it didnt took me that long to come up with the list, mostly because most of the things I had them in lists already... I think it took me longer to come up from 80 and up, even though they are not even in the order I came up with them.. LOL

Lauren♥Jaden♥Kaylie said...

such good ones! I am definitely going to have to do this. I think it'd be fun!!!

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Lauren: That's great... Let me know when you have them up so I can check them out! :)

Sharon said...

Oh wow! that's an ambitious list. Good for you!!

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Sharon: I agree... I will see how much I can REALLY accomplish!!

Thanks for stopping by.. You should make your list too! :)

Amanda said...

Loved your list. Think the Wii & Wii Fit is a great one for you to have. We have both and I just need to find time to use them! I think now that I'm home all the time having been dismissed from my job for being diabetic and not being able to say that I'll never be off sick again I should have time. However, I'm homeschooling my ASD/Asperger's 15yo, taking care of my 18yo who's just starting uni, hubby, 3 chickens, 4 cats and a black lab puppy and trying to find a way to work at home as a freelancer. I think I need one of your lists - I may then become a more organised mum.
I was glad to find you through We are THAT Family. I shall definitely follow you and will add your button to my blog.
BTW your kids are so sweet!

AutumnFawn said...

Wow--amazing list. I used to be a list maker, but I think I get a bit too obsessed with it! Not that I don't ever make lists, but I do try to not focus on them. I am a perfectionist by nature, so if I can't get something crossed off, I get way too agitated. I hate that about me. :)

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Amanda: I will be on the search of an used Wii or refurbished.. Gotta save on that... But I REALLY REALLY want them both... I also know how my hubby would love it and that is going to help with the goal of getting him to loose weight... Thanks for stopping by... Your life centainly seems SUPER busy and Im sure it could be fun to keep up with the list...

Autumn: Im also crazy about lists, however, I get excited with my lists... I got the list up yesterday and I just cant wait to start checking off... Im sure there are things that I wont even do if there were not in the list (like cleaning up my business email that has 99% full and I keep postponing to clean it.... Im sure that know I will do it, just because the LIST SAYS SO and I want to check it off!! LOL :)

jOni lAnE said...

love your blog! found you through we are THAT family. I'll be sure to check back often!

Audra said...

I am inspired! I struggle to make a list of what I need to do in a WEEK let alone multiple years! I may sit down and toy with this tonight!

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Audra: Dont get discouraged if after 35 things you have no idea what else to write... It helps to look at other people's lists too... So, you can steal a few of mine, and then google for more ideas! :)

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

jOni lAnE: Weird... I answered your comment before, and it is not there!!! Anyway, Im happy you found me and I will be checking out your blog too!

Organized Nutrition said...

What a great list... I started mine on Feb 1st this year... I have about 20 things check off so far.... This takes me to WHEN all my kids will be in school ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.... So of course one of them is to figure out HOW to get through the EMPTY NEST TIME>...LOL!

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Gotta check out yours... I dont think I have seen it!!!

melaniet42 said...

What a fantastic idea! I *heart* lists and this would be perfect. I must do it. Totally task #1. I'm visiting your blog for the first time - very cute! I popped over here from We Are THAT Family.

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

THanks for visiting... Love new readers... I stopped by yours and your child is a total cutie!

Will save your blog on my roll call under Mimi's friends :)

 

We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
