#100 - Completed!

I bought a new tv back in March. I never took it out of the box until today since I didn't have a place to put it. Last month I finally found a tv stand with a mount that I like. It's hard with 3 kids in the house to put anything together. With all three kids gone today, I decided today was the day. It took longer than I thought it would but it's done and the tv is mounted. I still need to call Directv tomorrow to put in a connection in the room we want it in.

I received my Nook case!

I got my Nook case in the mail today. It's really nice. It's a little bigger than I thought it would be but that just means I can buy a cover for my Nook and it will still fit in my case.

#23 - Completed!

I picked up my glasses. I made sure I took my contacts off tonight and put them on. It feels weird after not wearing glasses for literally years. They will take some getting used to. I only plan on using them at home at night since I don't like how I look in glasses. Here's a picture of me wearing them.

#22 - Completed!

I went to the eye doctor and had my yearly exam. My eyes had been blurry for a few months so I knew I needed a new prescription. I'm always so surprised by how much things cost these days. Without any vision insurance, I paid $90 for an exam. This included a prescription for both contacts and glasses. Then, I looked for the cheapest eyeglasses and ordered them. They came out to $140. This may not sound like a lot of money to some people but for a broke nursing student living off of student loans it's a lot! I still have to order my contact lenses. They run about $40 a box and I need 2 boxes since I have a different strength on each eye. Oh well, at least I can see clearly again.

Even though, getting eyeglasses is #23 of my list, I'm not going to cross it off until I pick them up next week.

#35 - Completed!

I just completed #35 of my list. I'm so excited! This is the first thing I have completed from my list. I bought a case for my Nook from an Etsy shop. I just love the color.

Welcome to my journey

Welcome to my blog about my 101 things to do in 1001 days. My journey ends on May 13th, 2013.

Some of these will be things I have been wanting to do for a long time. Some will be everyday things to improve my quality of life. I'm always striving to become a better person and mom.

Thank you for taking this journey with me.
