My Bucket List....
I'm going to go ahead and try to make a bucket list but when it comes down to it... I'm pretty happy and satisfied with my life. What is in the future will come.
So here goes!
- Get married.
Call me silly and old fashioned but I love Kodiak. I want to marry him someday. (He knows this by the way... not exactly a shocker since we have baby Jilly!) I don't know about a huge white wedding but something small and sweet and beachy probably would be awesome. Let's aim for within 3 years!
- Go to Hawaii (again).
I went to Maui when I was 16 and adored it. But I spent a lot of silly teenage girl time on my brand new cell phone (running up a nice $800 bill - sorry Mom!) with my boyfriend back home. I would like to go back and enjoy it 100% this time. Less hotel time, more Maui time!
- Have more babies!
I love Jilly. I adore her. I have always wanted to be a mommy and now that I am one I am excited for it to happen again... eventually! Preferably post- bucket list item #1!
- Learn to eat vegetables.
I hate veggies. I am sooooo unhealthy. At some point I would like to learn to enjoy them and become more healthy... someday.
- Go back to school.
In high school I was a slacker, it was so boring to me. I managed to graduate but I hated it. Then when I was 21 I went back to school and earned certificates for Medical and Nursing Assistants. To my surprise, I enjoyed learning and working for my grades. I would like to go back and become a midwife or maybe a lactation consultant.
- Develop a better writing habit.
This is kind of in the process since I've been working on this blog, but I would like to continuously work on my writing. Previously, I took writing classes so maybe I'll do that to get the writing bug back!
- Grow my hair out.
Trichotillomania. Bad habit. I'd like to conquer it. Its kind of embarrassing and I don't enjoy it at all. I definitely don't want Jilly to pick it up from me!
- Learn to play... something.
I am surrounded by musical people. Kodiak plays multiple instruments and for nothing else I would at least like to learn to play something. Guitar, piano, kazoo; whatever!
- Learn Spanish.
In high school I took French. I remember about 2% of what I learned. I thought Fresh was romantic. French is useless in Los Angeles. 15 year olds should not be allowed to make decisions like this. I should have taken Spanish.
I give my Dad a lot of crap about his "farm" in my parents backyard, but I really would like to be able to grow some food for myself.
Jilly (and future children) deserves a nicely documented childhood. I enjoy craftiness, but I am not necessarily excellent at it. I need more patience.
- Develop more patience.
- Go "offline" for a week. Or two.
We are so constantly connected, I would like to take a step back at some point and reconnect with regular not so ALWAYS GOING life.
- Date Kodiak again.
Babies make life hard and you focus less on each other. Relationship revitalization is essential.
- Learn sign language.
Working on this now with Jilly!
Now that I've started a list there is more I want to do but that's what the future is for :)
