Yearly Ten

Just before the new year started I had thought about a book that I read called Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber. Its about a group of women that create a list of 20 things they would like to do before they die, be it small or big. I thought about how I would like to try out some stuff. I made a list of 10 things that I would like to do in 2011. I never thought to share it on my blog, but a lady that I follow posted her bucket list. Well I commented to her that I thought I might have to steal her idea and blog about it. This way it makes it more out there and I'll feel the need to accomplish these things be it big or small.

So here it is:

1. Get serious about the 2012 Bodah Reunion
2. Buy my 1st house
3. Take Lucas to Disney World
4. Get sewing machine repaired and sew again
5. Read Gone w/ the Wind all the way through
6. Go to at least 3 plays/musicals
7. Visit w/ an old friend, a different friend each month
8. Lose 25 lbs
9. Climb Detroit; join a team
10. Ride my bike again

There it is and I'm looking forward to all of these. Some are things I used to enjoy doing but somewhere they were lost along the way. I am enjoying the thought of doing this list and seeing how and when I am able to complete it. I'll definetely post each time I complete one and I'll post a pic.

#9 I've already started working on. This is an annual stair climb to the top of the Renaissance Center (72 floors). I've always wanted to do this, I'm trying to find others to join a group w/ me or at least join another group that has already formed. I work at the Ren Cen and have in the past climbed stairs for exercise and could get up to floor 26, not quite 72 but its a start. Hoping to find others that will help me complete this goal. It's coming soon March 6th, gotta get busy to make this one happen.

I think this would be fun for me to do each year; a new list of ten.


  1. Ok that is a fantastic idea! Love it and may blog a list of my own....I might steal some of your list too..LOL.

  2. Wow .. .. that is one serious (and very expensive) list.

    I think you wil have your work cut out to do all of those in a year .. .. but what an achievement if you do. Even to accomplish two or three of them would be brilliant.

    I wish you all the best with them and a very happy 2011.

    Love Jules xx

  3. Hi Jules, your right it will be quite expensive but I'm very hopeful. Your definetely right 2 or 3 would even be brilliant.
