101 in 1001

Friday, November 13, 2015


A few years ago I came across the Day Zero List website.  Basically what it is, is you have 1001 days to complete 101 tasks of your choosing.  I made a list a few years ago but come nowhere near finishing because my life changed so much during those 2.75 years that some of the items were impossible.  With our impending move I figured when we get our first duty station it would be the perfect time to start a new list and include all of the things we want to do in our new home.  However, Macy announced a link-up last week and I want to participate.  So, since Josh's new AIT location is so much closer to home than the original and since there are a few things I'd like to do in MD before we leave, I figured why not start one now and just leave a bunch of items blank and add them in once we know where we'll be moving.   So, this list that I'm about to share is just the things I want to do while I'm still living in MD.
