Things I've Done (and Not Done)

Surfing around Entrecard this morning, checking on my favorite bloggers, I ran across this. I found it particularly interesting because my mood lately has been so bleak. This lovely little list made me think of many of the things I've done in my life, and reflect on things still left to do. So I "stole" it from Following 31, who stole it from At The Creek, who stole it from Mommy, I'm Home, who got it from A Day With Twins, who stole it off ScrapbookChic, who stole it from another...and so on. I just think it's awesome. The things I've done are in bold.

This is terrific! I've stolen it from you too! I only wish you had the links from the sites that it was stolen from, I'd also like to give them credit!

Yeah, I wanted to leave the links, too. I'm just so terrible with code that I couldn't get them all connected.
