101 Things To Do in the Next 1001 Days – 4th Edition

And speaking of things I meant to do ages ago, but just finally got around to doing: here’s my next 101 things to do in 1001 days list!

As you may recall, my last 101 list ended way back in the old time-y days of April 20171. I’ve been slowly adding things to the list since then2; and some are brand new (to me) ideas of things I’d like to accomplish.

Also like last time, I’ve put my list into a Google Spreadsheet, but this time I categorized them and have sorted the list by category, in alphabetical order: Adventure, Crafts, Finances, Fitness, Food, Home, Learning, Personal, Professional, and Travel.

Start date: Sunday, January 14, 2018

End date: Monday, October 11, 2020

Wish me luck!

  1. Though I didn’t get around to blogging it until June! []
  2. And I would like to note that there were two things that were on my list but I completed them before I actually finished compiling the list! For the record, they were: “Go to a New Westminster Salmonbellies lacrosse game” (which I did on July 13, 2017 [thank you Linda & Casey for the tickets!]) and “Get my will signed by two witnesses” (which I did on July 29, 2017 [thank you, Scott and Kalev!]), but somehow nine months went by before I actually completed it. But I’ve now come up with 101 things to attempt to do in the next 1001 days! Like last time, some of the items are things that I didn’t accomplish on my previous list, but that I still want to do; some are things I blatantly stole from Dr. Dan’s Not-So-Bucket List; some are from my goals for this year ((Hopefully I’ll get those ones finished in much less than 1001 days!

Stuff I Learned This Year: Home Repair Edition

Hey remember that time more than four months ago when my kitchen cabinet door fell off? I *finally* got around to fixing it. I was really gung-ho to fix it when it broke, going so far as to buy replacement hinges at Home Depot right away. But then I got busy and somehow four months went by before I got around to trying to actually attach the new hinges to the cabinet and, as it turns out, the hinges I got were not the right ones. I’d bought ones that looked like the old ones, but when Scott and I attached them, the door wouldn’t close – it was off by like half an inch. My friend Heather’s husband Dwayne came over to help out and discovered what the problem was – the hinges I had gotten from Home Depot were made by Blum, but the hinges in all my cabinets are Ferrari. And apparently there is no standardization among different manufacturers, so you can’t just use a Blum hinge to replace a Ferrari one. After running around town, I managed to find someone who could sell me the right hinges, which Scott and I used to fix the cabinet yesterday and now I am the proud owner of a kitchen in which all the cabinets have doors on them!

And while we were in a fix it kind of mood, we also tightened the toilet seat, which was starting to become a bit loose. For this, we went to YouTube and found a video that showed us how very easy peasy this is to do:

So now not only can I successfully hide the contents of my kitchen cabinet with a fully functioning door, but I also will not slide off my toilet due to a loose seat. Hooray!
