Ok... 40 is coming... next year I turn 40. Time to start the bucket list! Here goes... let me know what your favourite one is.
1. Print one of my picture books...even if it is only for myself even if it doesn't get picked up by a publisher. This makes me excited just thinking about it. I want my kids to see and read the books I have written. I am tired of having them stuck on my computer for no one to enjoy.
2. Travel to Italy and Portugal Need I say more?
3. Be able to do at least 5 chin ups. I'd like to have more strength as I get older.
4. Homeschool and raise happy children who love learning.
5. Try a new job/career. I don't have any ideas, but I want to open for opportunities. Right now, I'll stick with being self employed as a Baby Sign Instructor. www.stickyhands.ca Love my job!
6. Write in my journal more. You'd almost never know I was a writer. I have a hard time getting words on paper... they like to stay in my mind longer than I'd like to admit.
7. Go caving.
8. Scuba dive more. I always use the excuse it's too expensive or complicated to organize, the truth is I just need to book and go. I got my open waters a long time ago and would have to upgrade. I will do this soon.
9. Swim with the wild dolphin. I have already started saving for this one. I am hoping to go for my 40th birthday.
10. Remarry my husband all over again.Cause he's awesome and I want another party.
11. Purchase nicer furniture. Most of our stuff has been given to us, I'd like to learn what I love and decorate my home with my style... when I find out what my style is.
12. Landscape our yard, upgrade our kitchen.
13. Do a tri-a-tholon.
14. Buy a van. I'm a sell out, I know... but hey I have kids, and it just makes sense!
15. Surprise myself on doing something out of character and being good at it.
