>> Friday, February 26, 2010

ok gotta be honest, i don't think much was accomplished. guess we'll see as i work my way down the list. if by some odd chance anything was completed, i will bold it and mark it as done. things that have been started and are still ongoing will be bolded and marked as ongoing (and i'm pretty sure nothing has become routine yet). anything that is recurring and numbered will be updated. and there will be some random comments for things i absolutely blew off. this will be humbling but a good accountability check!
