Do you have a bucket list?
I have a friend in her 50s who has a 60 by 60 list. It consists of 60 things she wants to do before she turns 60. I like that idea better than a bucket list. A bucket lists sounds so…definitive.
Because I am in my 50s as well, I decided to adopt the whole 60 by 60 thing. I have a list. Actually, I currently only have 57 things on my list, though I am always searching to add more.
We were at a party last weekend and my 60×60 list came up and here’s why.
Doing a zip line tour is on my list. I did a Deal Chicken sort of thing and got a couples zip line tour for my husband’s birthday which is Sunday. I figured what the heck, we’ll go zip lining for his birthday! Only problem is the hubs isn’t too fond of heights. It’s not on his list of things he wants to do before he
kicks the bucket turns 60. But it’s on mine! So here we go…Monday is the day. Stay tuned for a vlog hopefully, a blog post for sure. How mean am I?
What’s on your bucket list? Do you even have one? A list of any kind?
The first thing on my list is to ride in a hot air balloon. I did that a couple of months ago, thanks to my friend Kathy. You can read about it here: Hot Air Ballooning.
Another thing on my list is to write a book. I published my first E-book in May. You can read about that here: My Book.
And the final thing I have scratched off my list because I have done the deed, is to be involved in the 127 Yard Sale. You can read about that here: The Things You Learn at the 127 Yard Sale.
So what else is on my list?
Becoming a grandma. Someone at the party pointed out to me that I can’t have that on my list because that involves other people. Hey, it’s my list. It staying!
Attending a Bloggy Bootcamp is also on there. I have my ticket and am ready to head for Minneapolis in October! Actually I’m attending Bloggy Conference 2013 in September. That’s right. Four years of no conferences and BAM! Now I’m going to two.
Take a web design class is on there as well. The adult ed class starts next week! I’m definitely on a roll here.
Go on an overseas mission trip is on there. Not yet.
Run/walk a marathon. We’ll see.
The hardest one of all may be going gray before I’m sixty. You do understand that I have a lot of gray hair already? I just cover it…every five weeks. Throw a little cash at it and like magic I’m, well…not gray. That is actually an upcoming blog post.
That’s all I’m sharing for now. Maybe more as I check them off. I need some more ideas. Tell me about your list? Do you have any suggestions?
