More 101 in 1001 Updates

I have a few more updates for you on my 101 in 1001 list – I’m knocking them out this week! First of all, look at my plant:

Better, right?! I took all of your advice on how to water it, etc. and it’s definitely alive and thriving! I even see some flowers budding (!), so while I’ve already crossed #45 off, I feel better about it now.

Chris and I just finished watching the entire Arrested Development series on DVD, so #99 – check, although I don’t have a good photo to prove that I did do it. This was on the list simply because it was a show that my brother and several of my friends absolutely loved, and I wanted to see what the fuss was about. We loved it, too! Buster cracked me up.

I combined items #7 – Buy a difficult jigsaw puzzle and put it together and #50 – Learn to locate all of the world’s countries on a map by buying a world map jigsaw puzzle! Completing a jigsaw puzzle was on the list as a task to remind me to always finish what you’ve started, to pay attention to the details but keep the big picture in mind, and that patience is a virtue. If you’re not sure how a jigsaw puzzle can do all of that, go buy one and get cracking! It’s also just really good exercise for your brain. 🙂

Learning all of the countries was a pretty ambitious task for me and I’m not sure how well I’ll retain the information, but I think I feel satisfied with what I’ve learned, so I’m considering that complete. It’s sad to say, but there were some countries that I couldn’t even place on a continent before, and I’m pretty sure I can at least do that now.

More item updates soon! And the craziness of my wedding season is about to really take off, so watch this space.

  • Jenn - GREAT JOB!! The plant looks GREAT.. you should post the before (sad plant) next to this one. I kept meaning to ask you how it was doing. Great job on the puzzel.. I love puzzels….ReplyCancel

  • Eileen Broderick - Bravo!! You are so good about keeping up with your list. I never remember to revisit mine but I should. The plant looks great. The puzzle-map–an awesome idea. My son loves maps and puzzles and has been doing them since he was two but the sad part is–he knows the states and countries waaay better than I do. :OReplyCancel

  • Brianna - Kudos! And the plant looks great 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Jaci Clark - We love puzzles! And since Geography is probably my worst subject I think I’ll get myself one of these. It would make a great homeschooling project too!
