50 Things I Accomplished

I saw this list over at Dominique's blog and just loved it!  After my downer post last week on Goals, Productivity, and Other BS, I thought this would be a nice counter - to acknowledge everything I HAVE accomplished in my life!  This is a great list and has helped to remind me that I have lived - and am living - a very full life.  Also, there are things on this list I can still do.  So, here are the 50 things I've accomplished (comments in parantheses are my own additions!).  How about you?
