.......1665 days..........................

So....Sarah got me thinking about this idea "101 things to do in 1001 days"

I was inspired, but I wanted to tweak it a bit. I've been feeling really down lately because there are so many things that You & I don't get to experience because he is in the Navy for another depressing 1,665 days. Well, I figured instead of being glum about it, I would find 101 things that I could do in the meantime. Things that when he gets out, I could look back and say that I (we) accomplished that would help us live the rest of our lives together (and yes, he is getting the *F* out!) So...that being said, here we go!
