    That looks like a pretty thorough list…lots of fun tucked in there too! Have fun with it, I’ll be looking forward to watching your progress!

  2. Laurel Says:

    Better hurry on the Magic Mountain thing. There’s a rumor/possibility it’s going to close at the end of the year. Great list though!

    And I hear you on the being hard to come up with 101 things! I’m stuck at 91, but I posted my list anyway.

  3. Susan in SoCal Says:

    You’re way ahead of me. I don’t have a list at all, and I don’t think I’ll get around to compiling one.

    Yours looks great, you go girl!
