99 Things

As we are looking forward these days, I was just given this meme by a fellow blogger. It made me stop and think about what I've done and what I'd still like to do. What about you?

Let me know if you do this on your blog. I tag any and all readers -- and if you do it, send me a link or link back here. I'd like to see what everyone else is up to.
