Bucket List

I am learning alot about myself now that I am 35 {yesterday}.  It is amazing how much 1 day teaches you! 
I don't deal with death very well.
I am not afraid of dying.
I just don't enjoy seeing my loved ones get older...and...well....die.

If everyone could just live forever, I would be happy.
But that isn't how the circle goes is it??


Now that I am 35 and feeling a tad elderly, I cannot help but wonder if this is the path I was destined to take.
Are there things I should be experiencing before I see the light and enter the Land of Perfection and Pure Happiness?
That is Heaven in case you were wondering.

I am going to write a Bucket List.  I said I never would, but now I am all "deep" and stuff so feel it is the right thing to do.  Just sayin'.

Because living life isn't all about cleaning, working and yelling at your kids to clean up after themselves and to wipe their bum.
It is about enjoying the time you are Here because you never know when your time is up.
And it would be a shame if you just went through the routine of Life without working towards your goals and having a little fun along the way.

Mommas Bucket List

1.  Swim with dolphins.

2.  Learn how to use Photoshop
3.  Go on a photography vacation
4.  Finish all incomplete scrapbooks
5.  Visit every province in Canada
6.  Run a marathon.

7.  Go whale watching and not poop my pants when I see one
8.  Rent a beachhouse on Martha's Vineyard
9.  Volunteer overseas
10. Find a cure for stretchmarks and become rich and famous so I can afford to do everything on my Bucket List
It is a work in progress......many more to be added to the list.

What is on your list????

Lovely list! But I can add one (if you don't mind) - visit the lovely state of North Carolina and meet Gigi!

God, you are only 35! And already writing the bucket list....sigh. Come talk to me in a couple of years.....

If you find a cure for stretch marks I will be the first one in line to buy it!!!

Bucket lists are great. I've done a few things on mine. Maybe I don't have enough things on my bucket list ... :) Actually, I'm rather enjoying (when I remember to enjoy it) just every day life. Sometimes I think that is good enough.

I hope that you get to do the things on your list!!!

I've been thinking of creating my own bucket list because I do think it is important to focus on things you really want to do and it does help if you have a list to make that happen. I love yours!
