In other news …

There is a website called You make a list of 43 things you want to do before you die or turn 40 or whatever goal it is you have for yourself. I hadn’t logged into the site in a long time and just did. Here’s my list (below or click the link; in no particular order).

** Note: The “1 person” or “6 people” (or whatever number of people) after the entries, is the number of people who have the same goal. It’s an interesting site, you should check it out. You can cheer on other people and get cheered. I love seeing what people’s hopes and dreams and goals are. If you make a list of your own, send me the link and I will cheer for you regularly! :-) **

What’s on your list? Leave a comment — I want to know!
