  17. Finish my Alphabet Blog Series.  - I have some posts in drafts, but haven't completed any of them. 
  18. Turn in a school assignment a whole day before it is due. - Done.  Actually more than one.  I've taken several quizzes in my online class days before they were due. 
  19. Blog at least twice a week, every week. - Still on track.  I've officially blogged more in the first two months of 2012 than I did the whole year of 2011.

  24. Send 5 people Birthday cards through the mail. - Not yet. I keep forgetting about this one... I need to get on it. 
  25. Cook dinner for my whole family, including dessert. -Done.  I just realized that I need to blog about this.
