2017 Accomplishments and 2018 Goals

Before the end of today, I wanted to get this posted.

Last year, especially the last few weeks, were interesting, and not in a great sort of way.  But the book of 2017 is done; has been for 19, almost 20 hours.  What all got listed on the first day of the year?  A lot.  What needs to get done?  Getting ready to go back to work/school tomorrow.  Everything else is done.

Speaking of done:
