I've never seen The Bucket List, nor do I plan to. I don't even know if I can responsibly recommend it. However, I understand the premise is there are these two guys who make a list of things they want to do before they "kick the bucket." I think they have terminal cancer and a limited amount of time to live. Whatever the story, I was inspired to write down a few things I'd like to accomplish in the next year or so. And, yes, I am one of those people who puts things on their list that I've already done just so I can cross them off, so there's a few easy ones on here I know will happen just to make me feel good.
*Start a compost pile.
*Finish painting the few places in my house that need touching up.
*Tile the backsplash in my kitchen.
*Successfully grow one tomato plant and one pot of basil (the extent of my garden this year)
*Read a book about Uganda and try to get a grasp of the history of that country.
*Finish my college scrapbook. (I only have the graduation portion left, and it's been that way for 2 years!)
*Finish my thesis (goal of Nov.).
*Become a nurse practitioner (planned for May 2010).
*Play the piano for patients/residents and families at St. Marys and Madonna Towers.
*Make it back to Honduras.
*Learn to make decent espresso on my new machine.
*Winterize the house better so my heat bill improves next winter.
*Assume my newfound role as an aunt and get the birthday calendar figured out.
*Get completely checked off so I can perform blood and marrow transplants and administer chemotherapy at work.
That's a good start.
