W.O.T.: The Old Bucket List
Monday, October 3, 2016
For today's Working On Things, I'd like to bring back something I forgot: my bucket list.
I had a bucket list of 30 things I wanted to do before I turned 30. I was pretty gung-ho about it up until about a week before my birthday, had a lot of fun and motivation while crossing off my lists, and then I turned 30 and promptly forgot about it! So, I've since updated then list here for you to see what else I was able to cross off the list. (I know I'm forgetting things though... I'm not sure if I turned 60 or 30.)
Some things to note, just for fun:
1) We finally decided to get a girl committed to babysit for us every other Friday night. Our dates are going to go up in frequency now, and I am so happy about that!
2) My reading list makes me feel a little sad... I used to be the biggest book worm ever. But I can't keep my eyes open! I love audio books too, but podcasts have taken over for me in that department.
3) We had our first trip to Disneyland as a family. It was just one day, but it was amazing. We didn't tell the kids until we arrived, and while they gave us an anticlimactic reaction, the whole day was magical. We were there from opening until closing. God bless my two boys for somehow napping that afternoon, so that could be possible. (It probably helped that we only had 5 hours of sleep the night before.) Having such a great time made up for the stomach flu Bella got the next day, due to her licking every pole in the park. We had to leave our trip three days early (we were supposed to be in San Diego with old college buddies), but we'd do that all again for another wonderful day at Disney.
I still have a few things on my list left to cross off! Before I make a list of 31 things to do before I turn 31, I'd like to finish up what remains. I'm going to start small and share with you every Monday which item(s) I'm working on for the week.
This week's first goal is to finish one of the two sewing courses I signed up for. They are online classes through Modern Girl's Guide to Sewing. I started my beginner's course, and it was great so far, but then I once again forgot about finishing it.... Bad track record, but I'm sure other moms can relate! My goal is to complete the beginner's level this week, and work on my project that goes with it. So, fabric store here I come! (This obviously isn't sponsored.)
The second goal is to try a new ice cream place on our date this week. I'm definitely making this one happen! (Any suggestions in the East Bay area?)
What are you working on this week?
