I’ve seen these lists around and for some strange reason really wanted to put one together. I kind of think it’s silly but hey, here I am. And let me tell you, coming up with a list of 101 things was flippin hard. So hard that I didn’t even finish it. Heh. I’ve been obsessing over writing this list for a month now.

At first I had as part of my list “see the pyramids in Egypt”. But when I had added everything that I could possibly think of and was still only at 60-something, I started adding things like “plan trip to Egypt”. Upon seeing this, my witty husband said “why don’t you just go ahead and add “return from trip to Egypt. That way you’ve got all your bases covered!”. And ultimately, he was right. 
Side note to that: my husband thinks the whole list thing is silly. Just like I think all his video games and obsessive forum reading are silly. But so is the nature of our relationship: “whatever makes you happy dear”. Jokes on him though because about half of the list requires various degrees of work on his part. Like #39. Who do you think is going to be climbing on the roof to hang those Christmas lights? Hint: it’s not me. 
I digress. 
Back to my point, I decided it was better to have a list that was too short rather than a list half full of things I pulled out of my ass. So, I’m just going to leave a few spots open that I’ll fill in at a near point in the future (hopefully). Because let’s be honest, the second I hit publish on this little list, I’ll instantly think of a million awesome things to add. So, I’ll just be ready with a few empty spots.
