Day 22

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Today's sort of a blur. I went back to work and have been quite busy all day. I have to leave here on time tonight so I can take my oldest son to the alteration shop to have his school jeans hemmed. I really wish I knew how to do it myself - and have it not look awful. I'm no good with a needle and thread!

That's on my bucket list. Learn to sew. Make a few pieces of clothing for myself - a skirt or a dress. Maybe a cardigan if I get good enough. But for now, I go do the drycleaners to have any alterations done and we buy all our clothes.

Have any of you started a bucket list? I did about a year ago. I think I only checked off one thing since then - roller skating (and I've only done that twice since creating the bucket list). There are places I want to visit, things I want to try emotions I want to either curtail or promote in my day to day life.

Here is my bucket list:

Learn to make jewelry (earrings, bracelets)

Learn to make my own beads for jewelry

Learn floral arranging

Learn to blow-glass

Learn to decorate a cake

Take a voice-overs class

Take a mosaics class

Take a painting class

Learn to read music

Learn to play the piano

Play bells in a choir

Join a chorus

Take an acting class

Learn to sew blankets quilts?

Learn to sew clothing make my own skirts, etc.

Go tubing in snow

Take photography class

Take a tiling class (for home)

Take a landscaping class

Go horseback riding

Know that I can do what I set out to do


Get my teeth fixed

Go to France

Go to Greece

Go to Germany

Go to Italy

Go to Russia

Go to Grand Canyon

See Mt. Rushmore

Go to Hawaii

Go to a Caribbean Island

Go to Canada

Go to Alaska

Go to California

Go to Japan

Go to Texas

Go to China?

Go to India?

Take a cosmetology class

Enjoy life every day

Be positive

Enjoy getting dressed in the morning

Trust my instincts

Be more gracious

Be more accepting

    Right now all my list has on it is to visit New Orleans and Washington DC but you have given me some things to think about.

    That is some list, I haven't started one yet, but it will be something for me to do just so I have the pleasure of ticking them off.

    A few of those thing you can cross off by taking a class at your local craft store, both Michael's and JoAnn's have classes. I find them cheaper at Michael's, but if you don't have one near you, then other craft stores should have come of those classes.

Sounds like you need to go on a road trip!

Enjoy crossing things off!

    That's a great bucket list! I haven't written out an official list, but my hubby and I talk about our bucket lists all the time. I think I need to write it out so I can check off the ones I do. Have a great week!
