The one that have been updated most recently is finishing 10 scarves for people I love, thanks to deciding to make my daycare teachers scarves for Christmas. In the Fall I also managed to get a new photo of our family taken and framed for the mantel, raised almost $900 for my marathon run (when my goal was $500) and completed my marathon! I’ve also gotten some serious work done on a few others. I’ve broken the 4,000km mark for total distance run, which means I’m over 80% of the way there and I’ve got plans for some baby books for my girls too, so that’s good news! I’m going to create them on blurb or another site like that and then glue in the special things like their hospital tags rather than working with scrapbook stuff. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE scrap booking but by the time I print the photos out I run out of time to do anything in the actual book!

So there is my update! I’ve also, figured out one of my empty spaces! For number 99 I’m going to try to run my 5km in less than 30 minutes! Woot! Go me!
