I cheated.


If I had to list them all individually, then I''d have nothing but travel spots on the list!

We have considered Canada as a permanent move. We like it there!

What I meant by my list was living somewhere with a bit more culture/language shock for a few months. US and Canada are too similar. I''d get by just fine with English.

I want to have to run around with a "handy sayings in X language" guidebook with a confused look on my face.

4) Learn calligraphy
5) Start my own card making business

My list looks like:

1) Travel to Africa, and climb as much of Kilimanjaro as I physically can (B and I have talked about honeymooning there!)
2) Qualify for the Boston Marathon or run the marathon in Antarctica.
3) Publish a cookbook.
4) Learn calligraphy (I bought a pen set the other day!) and get better at drawing.
5) Watch a Manchester United match in Old Trafford.

Wow misskitty, that''s awesome!!! I love finding people with similar interests
.

I told D that he would be in charge of planning our honeymoon because he''s the travel nut with huge aspirations. He''s been to Kenya and he loves Africa, and it just so happens that the World Cup is in South Africa the month after our wedding (although we have not confirmed any wedding plans yet!), so I told him that I would not be opposed to honeymooning in Africa either! Whew...run-on sentence!

I''m SO psyched about the World Cup being in SA.
I''m trying to convince B that we should do a destination wedding in 2010, get tickets for a game (he''s a HUGE soccer nut) and then trip out to Kilimanjaro for some climbing and whatnot.

1. Create a journal for my four children, giving them every bit of advice I could think of (ranging from financial to what to avoid in a mate, how to treat each other, humility and kindness, etc.), and thanking them for coming into my life. I would want them to know just how much joy they each have given me, and how grateful I was for the privilege of being their mother.

2. Find my biological mother. When I was a kid, the comments I got from my mom were not nice, and it wasn''t until I became a mother myself that it really hit home what a sacrifice my bio-mother made in letting me go. Since then, I say a prayer for her comfort on my birthday. There is no way if I''m anything like her that she could have given me up without having a massive hole in her heart that opens every August first.

3. Attempt to forgive my ex for being such a POS. I may be able to if faced with imminent death, but I still can''t in reality.

4. Have a big bash with my family and friends.

5. Spend my remaining days with the ones I love the most.

It may not be an exciting list, but its what is important to me.

not necessarily in order of importance:

1) take several more trips abroad
2) adopt an adult boxer from a boxer rescue organization
3) throw one really AMAZING party that everyone talks about for months afterward
4) work part-time, even if it means living very simply
5) buy a home, but something unique, like an old carriage house that''s been converted
