    There's about three things left on my "bucket" list that I haven't done yet. One is skydiving. I had the opportunity to do it when I was in my early 30's. I decided not to jump out of the plane because a weird feeling came over me that my parachute wouldn't open when it came time to pull the ripcord.

    The other 2 remaining things on my list.

    * Finally go to an actual live skating event hoping no one gets ill where I have to end up selling or giving away the tickets again.

    * Go to Paris, climb the Eiffel Tower and end the day with a champagne glass filled with Dom Perignon.

    I can't think of anything else at the moment because I've accomplished the other things on my list which included visiting every southeastern & southwestern state from Florida to California traveling by car.

    I have already had a wonderful life and accomplished most of my goals, but still have some dreams:

    - transition to my 2nd career before age 50 (part way there already, I have loved my current career in social work/therapy but ready for a change) - either management position at the college or my own private practice.
    - drink a nice glass of red wine from our villa (rented) in Tuscany (doing it in July for our 25th wedding anniversary)
    - bunjee jump when I'm 50 (I survived sky diving already)
    - learn to scuba (a fear for me)
    - get a tattoo
    - see penguins in their natural habitat (I love penguins)
    - eat my favourite food (sushi) in Japan
    - buy another boat (when no longer paying tuition fees)
    - sail my own boat to the Caribbean
    - go to Sochi, hopefully watch my daughter compete (not figure skating ) but if not the two of us have an amazing adventure
    - go to Hawaii, use those new scuba skills
    - watch our daughter graduate from vet school, make us some grand babies
    - either move or have the house renovated so i can have a large soaker tub as I love baths..
    - last one.. be a size 12 again and get a whole new wardrobe (was a size 16 but almost now into a size 14).

    Now just need to win the lottery to pay for all of this
    Thanks to PI .. I discovered I'm actually a Nontheist

    ********

    My Middle-Age Bucket List of things to see and do (if I had the time and the to accomplish them ):

    - See MiniCyn not only graduate from college, but also to see her fulfill her dreams wrt her career

    - go back to school and become a licensed Esthetician

    - create and nurture a Victorian English garden

    - Go on the Band of Brothers Historical Tour, which follows Easy Company's path through Europe, from Aldbourne, England and Normandy (traveling through WWII historical locales in England, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany (visiting most of the battle sights, memorials, museums, etc.), to Berchtesgaden (The Eagle's Nest), and ending in Zell am See, Austria.

    - Similar to Numbers and the Cubs, see the Atlanta Falcons win the Superbowl (in memory of my Dad), the Thrashers win the Stanley Cup, and the Hawks win teh NBA Championship

    - Take a motorcycle tour through England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales

    - Live without chronic pain

    - Write a snarky satire book about parenting (from "Sperms, meet Ms. Egg…..Ms. Egg, meet, er….everyone" through kicking them out of the house when they're an adult.

    Visit Russia, Poland (including Auschwitz), Germany, Italy, Greece, the Czech Republic, the Countries in Scandinavia, especially Norway,

    - Attend one of Germany's kickass Industrial/EBM festivals and dance my ass off while in total nopryde

    - Meet many, many of the FSUers i've come to know online over the past nine years

    - Find all of the socks my dryers ate over the past thirty years

    - Tour the Grand Prix from start to finish.

    There are many more, but I'm too tired to think of all of themright now.

    Thanks for the link for the band of brothers tour - that looks really amazing

    Which Grand Prix - formula one?? That would be the top of my hubbies bucket list - we have seen a couple but would love to have a yacht and watch the Monoco grand prix

    I'm 34 and still have a lot I want to accomplish:

    Travel the world:
    walk the streets of Rome
    explore Egypt
    walk through Versailles as graceful as Marie Antoinette used to
    climb up Mayan & Aztec pyramids
    visit Sergei Grinkov's grave
    sip some tea while watching snow cover pagodas in Japan
    explore Australia
    so many more places I want to see with my own eyes...

    I want to:
    own a home, I'm talking completely paid off, no mortgage
    have six pack abs (eh, don't know if I'll ever achieve THAT, lol)
    skate on a cloud like Ekaterina Gordeeva
    have time to make my own candles and soaps
    see my kids grow up into wonderful adults, maybe even have their own families
    slow dance in my hubby's arms at our 50th wedding anniversary.... just a bit over 38 more years to go!

    Yes, there are still plenty of things I want to do before I go.

    Our Jacuzzi was in front of a picture window. 2nd floor, but including the above ground basement in the back of the house, it is actually 3rd floor. All you can see are trees. But the window didn't open, the Jacuzzi was big and a pain in the butt to clean. All it did was collect dust, take up a lot of space, and we never used it. We are all shower people. We have a regular tub in the main bathroom, if we feel the need. Easier to clean! The new shower is awesome, it's doorless, I designed it. You go in and there is a little warm area with a heat lamp, then you turn into the shower. We put in a hand held shower spray and a rain head. And there are two corner seats. Can't wait for it to be completely done, so we can use it!

    I am a shower person too. I shower and wash my hair before a bath. Scrub out the tub and then enjoy the bath.

    Ahh! I would do the opposite. Take the bath, then shower. I'm neurotic, even in my own house!

    There's only two things I ever wanted out of life since I was a little girl, that was get married and have kids. At my age now ... never.gonna.happen.


    I'd love to get up the nerve to attend all events of a US Nationals the year of an Olympics. I am so scared to travel alone though I don't know I'd ever get up the courage unless it came to my city.
    Would love to do the same for a Worlds the year before the Olympics. (gotta make sure to hit the big years!).
