Currently Updating for 2010

I'm participating in the spotlighted community mission101_2009, with the goal of completing 101 tasks in 1001 days, from January 1, 2009 to September 29, 2011. I'll be 40 when it's done! (wow *wince* forty?!) My first post to the community was Make Eden Here, a companion (and link) to this post. In addition, I'm attempting to keep a record of spending associated with this list.

My next 2.75 years, 143 weeks, 33 months, or 1001 days:

In an effort to remember some things, I've loosely organized it along the categories found in You Can Do It!: The Merit Badge Handbook for Grown-Up Girls, a book given to me a few years ago that I've always meant to use as somewhat of a guide.
