This morning I was over at Mighty Girl's blog, checking the status of her "Mighty Life List - 100 Things To Do Before I Go". After catching up on the most recent adventure Mighty Girl had crossed off her list, I called Doris suggesting that we write our own Bucket List.
After laughing hysterically at ridiculous possibilities, we decided that neither of us would write a lengthy list of things we knew we would NEVER be able to accomplish - or afford - and write a smaller, more doable, PAIL LIST.
Learn sign language; spend a white Christmas with my family in a mountain cabin; learn to tango;
Ride a zip line in Costa Rica or Orlando or Gainesville (I notice that most of these involve walking across a rope bridge - which might make me reconsider);
finally learn Spanish (I've had the CDs for six years now, but still only know how to say hello, goodbye and where's the bathroom - from the first 5 minutes of the first CD); ride in a hot air balloon; spend a long weekend at a luxury spa; get a mini-face lift (I need major surgery, but I'll settle);
After we do all these things, we'll start a new list. Funny, now that we've written them down it has inspired us to actually start on them.
What's on your Pail List?
