Whew, what a year! Doing the 100 Things has always been a challenge, but this year was particularly hard for us to get across the finish line. But we did it, and we weren’t writing blog posts up until 11:45pm on December 31!
This is part of our 100 Things in 2017 challenge.
One challenge we’ve had with the 2018 edition of the list is that it feels like the lists are, if not repeating, maybe rhyming. We’ve got a few items that repeat year after year, and although the details differ, the main theme is still the same, and we wonder if that’s a little less interesting than the alternative. We’re thinking about changing some of these up a bit. Stay tuned.
It’s been quite a journey, but we’re still glad that we do this. With this 2018 list, we’ve now posted five 100-things lists, and it’s hard to imagine our lives without it. It’s the central theme for our family life – if we ever have kids that are dragging their feet out the door, or wondering why we’re getting into the car for the fourth time that day, all we have to say is “this is for a Hundred Thing!” and they spring into action. So yeah, this is part of our family identity now, and it’s not going anywhere.
With that, here’s the official 2018 100 Things list. Please wish us luck, and be on the lookout for the announcement of our podcast (#50 on the list)!
