My bucket list includes…a lot of things I’ve accomplished. Some of them I’m proud of and some of them I’m embarrassed by.
Here are some things from my list…
Learn to use polymer clay and make things with it. Check!
|Veggie Tales and wine charms
(a good combination)
Get over my fear of flying. Check! I used to need Xanax to get on a plane, when I got a plane. Often I drove or just didn’t go. Now I can make it without meds. I still do deep breathing during take-off and will white knuckle the crap out of the arms on the chair and slam on the imaginary foot break when there’s turbulence, but other than that I’m rockin’ the flights!
Hike all or part of the Appalachian Trail. Check! I hiked one-tenth of a mile on August 8, 2001 in Shenandoah National Park.
Swim with dolphins. Check! Did this on our honeymoon in Tahiti.
One year, hand-make all Christmas gifts. That’s about the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Let’s take an already stressful month and try to make it about 400 times more stressful. The sad thing is I did try to do this one year. I think that’s the Christmas Steve hated me…or at least should have.
Indulge my passion for expensive cologne. Check! I’m sure it was Jean Nate or Love’s Baby Soft. I haven’t used perfume or cologne in years.
Own a pair of Birkenstocks. They were yellow and people gladly told me how ugly they were. Because they were. But just like my Crocs, they were comfortable, so I continued to wear them.
In addition to my personal bucket list I bought a book called The Wish List.
Here are some items in The Wish List that I marked many years ago as things I wanted to do and now I’m not sure why:
Make ink out of nuts and berries. Why?
Hack my way through the jungle with a machete. Surprisingly, I haven’t done this one. We did let the grass grow really tall once when I was a teenager and I mowed the F-bomb in it. My mom got kind of mad about that.
Watch a dog give birth. I just wretched a little.
Take part in a cattle drive. No. Just no.
See the prairie chicken house in Norman, Oklahoma. I don’t even know what this is and why I would mark it, but I imagine I could get it done on the same trip as the cattle drive.
Make homemade mustard. Yeah, can you believe I haven’t done this yet? I hope I never do this.
Churn butter. Don’t you have to have a churn for this?
Construct a root cellar for storing vegetables year round. Did I really ever think I would do this much work?
Weave my own baskets. I’m a moron.
