    AS my kids grow up and I am needed less, I have decided to spend some time compiling a bucket list, hey I am young and "healthy".
    I should live my life, and some things that I thought would be neat to try!

    Rock climbing!
    Hiking down the Grand Canyon.
    Always wanted to shoot a hand gun- more for the experience than to own one.


    So what are you waiting for? What is the one thing you would love to do, but just haven't done it yet.

    Watching a space shuttle launch -and yes I know, they don't fly anymore so I missed out :(
    Going to Macchu Picchu
    To marry George Clooney, although I would be happy with just a kiss and a grope! More than happy actually....;)
    And to go and see friends in foreign lands, or indeed, play hostess to friends, perhaps one from Luxembourg....;)

    Actually, I try to do everything that I want...

    I do plan on hiking down the Grand Canyon, or at least riding the donkey down
    My sister and I plan on hiking the Appalachian Trail when we retire

    Other then that, I have my professional goals, but I don't thin that counts for my bucket list.

    Go skydiving
    Rock climb
    Ride in a hot air balloon
    Visit Europe, Australia, China - everywhere. :p

    Out of the 4 things on my list I'm positive I will do the first 3. I hope someday I will be able to afford the last one.

    I have never "driven" it but been on the back of the Harley many times! Lots of fun if the crazy riders would be more careful. Seen lots of close calls and a heard of lots that went over the edge.

    Take a trip out west on the Harley, we used to go on long rides but have not been able to in a long time..would love to see the Grand Canyon!

    Cruise to Alaska

    I guess this would count too..I would love to go back to school to become a CDE .. I doubt that will ever happen as I am the one with insurance so I gotta keep my job!

    Move to Wales for the summers and Key West for the winters. We only have two seasons, right?

    Spend at least 2 hours with all 6 of my girls and them getting along. (very doubtful that will ever happen).
    Go on a cruise.
    Be able to afford a car so I don't have to depend on others to take me places, esp Church.

    It is very doubtful I will accomplish any of these, but one can dream.

    I believe you can do that!

    maybe buy a slightly used car, I have never owned a new car...maybe I should add that to my bucket list..
    buy an RV and travel all over the states...lol I am such a redneck.:D

    Nothing is on my list. I find the greatest joy in everyday, unexpected adventures! Even getting lost can be fun. We found the most amazing place when we were lost - Nantahala Outdoor Center in the Smokies. We were a mere 6 hours out of our way coming home from Chattanooga, but it was one of the most soulful, breathtaking hours of my life. I hope for more moments like that - surprises!

    What show were they just talking about a bucket list???? Anyway, had me thinking about it again (I've tried several times). I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing that I can't think of anything. When the kids were younger, being able to take them to Disney World while they were young enough to enjoy it, and old enough to remember it was the only thing I wished for. Now that my older son is almost 17, and unless we win the lottery it's not going to happen, I feel I need to scratch that off my list.

    As for seeing something specific, traveling somewhere, doing something like skydiving... nada.
