Mission 101

x-posted to mission101

I still have my Farm 101 list, which I'm actually still plucking away at even if I haven't updated in forever. I also have a better sense of what kind of TIME and funds those goals take, so I realize my farm list wasn't as realistic as it should have been. Regardless, I will keep plucking away at it until April, when it's up. In the meantime, I'm focusing my new list on personal improvement, for the most part. I'm not getting as much help from the hubs or the kids on the farm as I had hoped. So, this list is solely about me and the changes I need to make.
