My Bucket List

Zoe is making a list of things she wants to do before she turns 40. Since I am already 42, I have been thinking about things I would like to do before I die. You know, the Bucket List.

I would love to travel and see:
Ireland and Rome for sure.
Maybe Egypt, Ethopia, and China.

Lose weight and fit into a gorgeous, yet simple, wedding dress.

Have a wedding that I never had.

Have a honeymoon that I never had.

Have a wedding ring with more than a quarter carat diamond. (Yes, bury me in that sucker! I want a diamond ring, dammit!)

Dance with my husband in public. (we have never, ever danced together except goofing around at home)

Swim with a dolphin or two.

I'd love to work for a day in a zoo and handle all the animals. Especially the gorillas. I love animals.

That's it I think. I might think of more and add them later, but honestly I cannot think of anything else. My life is almost (almost) perfect. I love having my children home all day long. They grow up so fast that I am grateful for this short time I have with them. Olaf makes a decent living and we don't have any pressing needs... Life is good! (Olaf if you are reading this, do not buy me a diamond ring without my approval!)

Misty I don't know you; I was just clicking through the next blog thing; but I think your choice of things is beautiful. I pray you get everyone of them..even the ring.
