Bucket List

The List

I am fully embracing my mid-life crisis by taking the opportunity to turn dreams into plans and tick off as many things as possible from my list. As such, I am going to use this page to list the things I want to do and cross off those achieved with some notes to have them for my memory bank. I am not going to be devastated if I don’t cross everything off, interests may change and the list may change, but at least it will give me a guide as to what to prioritize to maximize the amount we can do with the time we have left. Here goes!

      1. Oh – I took, “Sleeping on floating home” as a house boat. 😉 You’re quite welcome. I am grateful my mom loved to do road trips when I was a kid. Lots of great memories.
