Back in September, I sat down and wrote my first ever bucket list.
You can find my original post here: Autumn Bucket List
The last 2 items on my list are:
39. Document my bucket list with pictures
40. Blog about my progress weekly ….😞 I didn’t do this weekly but here I am with my 6th and final update.
This is my last update… what did I do and what did I “not do”!
#3 – Spend an afternoon painting pumpkin.
We waited so long that we ended-up making winter pumpkins… at least it started that way….
But ended this way… 🙂
#14 – Make cookies with Em and let her eat as many as she wants.
We do that regularly but didn’t take any pictures. We made chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies.
#16 – Trim our Christmas tree
Did you notice the cute ballerina on the wall? That’s me, many years ago!
#25 – Donate a turkey to the turkey drive.
Emily and I donated a turkey to her school to help them in their food drive. I am really happy to say that her high school was once again the top high school in collecting food for our region! I am so proud of those kids and families for all they do for our community.
And now, here is what I didn’t do!
#11 – Jump in puddles with Em – She always walks through puddles 🙂 and I walk around them. I haven’t jump in a puddle with her! Maybe that should be a summer item!
#24 – Take Jake and Maple to the groomer… We should really do this. I am going to move this to my to-do list.
#26 – Help deliver Christmas food box with my team. I am slightly ashamed to say that I didn’t do it this year. My schedule was so full, I couldn’t figure out how to rearrange my schedule… 😦
#29 – Bring goodies for the next bake sale at work – I was off the day of the bake sale and didn’t bring anything. I will bring some for the next bake sale.
#30 and #33 – Write and mail Christmas cards – I suck at this, I know it means the world to many to receive hand-written Christmas cards but I like human contact. I like to visit when I can and I like to buy gifts when I see my nephews. I don’t mail gifts…
Here you have it! My final update.
bravo once again. i love the colorful pumpkins and that ballerina picture is so cute. i like hat you’re realistic about not being able to do everything on the list, and giving yourself permission. bravo to all of you –
Thank you! 🙂
