Now Claudia does not share her list. Which actually, is a very safe thing and if I were a wiser woman perhaps I would guard mine behind a locked vault. But, alas, I feel the intense desire to share it. A desire to include you in my success as I check off the accomplishments, so that only if to remind you that it can be done. Do I say that with staunch authority on January 1, 2010? Hardly. The poor declaration is said with wobbly resolve and persistent doubts. But I shall give it a go.
So, here's to accomplishing 100 things in the first 100 days of 2010. Thanks for joining me for the ride.
The list....as I sat to prepare the list I had trouble coming up with 100 things right away. So, I've filled in what I could and will add to it along the way.
