101 Things v2 Progress Report: April 2013

Begin Date: April 4, 2013
End Date: December 31, 2015
Items Completed: 2

I finished 2 items in April 2013!

#42 Get a new WordPress theme for this site

#74 Organize the laundry room (I cleaned and reorganized our downstairs pantry, and got rid of a ton of stuff we don’t need anymore. It’s a huge improvement.)

Items currently in progress:

#14 Kayak or swim in the bioluminescent bay in Vieques (We booked tickets to San Juan in February, and are going to Vieques for three nights! The place we’re renting in Vieques overlooks the Biobay.)

#31 Finish my granny square blanket (I’m aiming for 130 squares, and I have about 85 done now.)

#25 Increase my deferral to Christmas Club and actually use that money for Christmas gifts (Yes, my credit union has a Christmas Club. I’m putting in $20/week, so I’ll have almost $1000 by the holidays.)

#27 Double my net worth (I created a very elaborate spreadsheet to track my progress. Spreadsheets are the answer to everything.)

#34 Try 40 new recipes [3/40]
  1. Parmesan Bread Pudding with Broccoli Rabe
  2. Crispy Quinoa and Mole Sweet Potato Tacos
  3. Minestrone

#39 Read 5 classic books I haven’t read before (I finished Islands in the Stream by Hemingway on the flight yesterday. I cried at least ten times reading that book.)

#54 Do the MN Aidswalk again (I’m registered!)

#61 Learn to brew beer (Took an Intro to Brewing class at Northern Brewer, and got all the supplies we need. Our first beer is ready to bottle this week.)

#67 Update my web dev skills to the current era (I’ve been writing a sites at work and for my own purposes in ASP.NET MVC using jQuery and Bootstrap. I’m getting there!)

#70 Put in a perennial garden around the birdbath, in our old firepit (Plants have arrived, and will hopefully go in this week.)

#77 Replace the stupid bushes in front of the house with pampas grass (Same as above.)

# 99 Put $20 towards debt payoff/savings for each completed task on this list, and $50 for each non-completed task ($40)

#100 Pay myself back for the unfinished items on my last list ($20 of $1120)

Here’s the full list.
