  1. Holy crap I’m so impressed. This list speaks right to the anal retentive list checker-off-er in me. I particularly like that there is a bonus one! And one item per day doesn’t sound so bad, when you put it that way (of course you’ll do a ton of them on other days, knowing you!). It sounds “kraze” but if anybody could do it, it would be you! Keep us updated 🙂

  2. AWESOME! I knew you could do it 🙂 Man, this must feel so awesome to have an entire list full of checked off things. Love the pictures, too!
