101 things to do in 1001 days

One year ago, I stumbled upon the kind of inspiration a work-a-holic turned stay-at-home mom needs. I discovered the 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days. Basically: come up with 101 grand but achievable things you'd like to complete in the next two and three quarters years.
Now, while I have several sports related goals that I've proudly completed (see #8, 22, 47, and 51), it is number 63 I am most proud of (red notes are my updates):

  • 63. Run 600 miles this year (starting 4/22/07 - 4/22/08) 8/15/07 200 miles, 10/10/07 310 miles, 12/16/07 460, 2/4/08 584, February 11th 2008 I reached 601 miles!!!!!!!!! Final Tally for year: 758.25!
Now, I average a 10 minute mile. That's 7582 minutes of running or 126 hours of foot-to-pavement. I wonder if I can put that on my resume when I return to the workforce full time?

Why return to the workforce at all? I write full-time. Well, half-time, between diapers, naps, loads of laundry and trips to the grocery store. I have yet to earn an income but I am so, so, so happy.

May I suggest another book, an older one I read when the corporate world was about to eat me alive 15 years ago:

Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow.

In other words, make it work. You know you can do it. And you don't need anybody's permission.

I'm also a work-a-holic now staying at home with my girls. And congrats on your newest accomplishment. Great idea making a list like that. I think I'll do the same.
