totally random.....and more freebies!

So, I found this list over on Amanda's blog and thought it would be fun to share. and...i think i just discovered some more stories that need told in my scrapbooks. like amanda, i'm not really sure that all the ones i haven't done are things i really want to do. i've been meaning to make a bucket list....ya know, things i want to do before i kick the bucket. seems like everyone but ME, has one of those. i have another local friend, amy, she's one of the co-owner of the Heart of the Matter {online}, an excellent resource for homeschooling families. anywho, amy challenged me once to make a list of 100 things to do in 1001 days. i never did. seems like a much more happy thing to focus on than doing it all before i kick the bucket, LOL. was that a rabbit trail or what!? the list from amanda....things i've done in BOLD.
