Hey, 45 out of 100 isn't bad! Almost half. There are a few things I would like to do, like see Paris and the Great Wall of China. There are things I don't want to do, like sit on a jury or be involved in a law suit.

Still no sign of any more mice. Maybe they don't like organic sugar free peanut butter.



  1. I saw this same thing on my friend Mindi's Blog. It looks fun. I will have to do it and see how many things I have done. Hope that you are well.

  2. I stole it and put it on my blog! :)

  3. All I can say is Skippy extra crunchy.


    I am totally going to steal your post.

  4. 45 is GREAT! Thanks for playing.
