seven things

OK…here goes….this was harder than I thought it would be – I write what I’m thinking so often instead of thinking and then writing. It took several attempts.

7 things I plan to do before I die…
1) Have children
2) Run a marathon & complete a triathlon
3) Make my brother’s library fund a scholarship fund
4) Travel out of this country (I went to Paris for a week once)
5) Spend Christmas without either my parents or my in-laws just once
6) Own a horse (that’s really a fantasy more than a plan)
7) Watch my sister get married

7 things I CAN do…
1) Help kids with various speech/language delays
2) Put my feet behind my head

  1. Johnny Depp and Jake Gyllenhaal… you DO like ’em skinny and dirty! 😉 I know what you mean about Sean Connery… my beloved Harrison Ford is suffering from the same malady.

    Oh, and I did #5 on the “Things you plan to do” list, and it is truly wonderful. I love my family, and I wouldn’t do it EVERY year, but it was very very nice for a change.


  2. Great post. Thanks for sharing. I’m with you on the attractive things about the opposite sex – I’m a big fan of tall and skinny myself!

    I also love traveling. Hopefully, you’ll have the opportunity to take a wonderful trip out of the country soon.

  3. Yeah I’ve got a soft spot for the tall skinny guys too but my husband is short (just a bit taller than me)and he’s completely Mr Sex Machine. (well…in my opinion anyhoo)

    Look the seven thing. YIKES. The truth is I am having a lot of trouble getting past that 7 things before you die. I’m so superstitious I can’t even name them. Donnie said I could maybe write it up in a different way so I’m playing with that…
