Life Lists

I really want to start blogging again, but I just don't have anything to say. So, I stealing this idea from my daughter and posting my own Life List (which sounds so much better than a bucket list!).

1. Go to Pearl Harbor and visit the USS Arizona Memorial and the punchbowl. I can come home after that a happy woman, but if I could see a little more of Hawaii I would be happy too.

2. Learn to tat. I have tried to teach myself, but there is a disconnect somewhere. I can tie a knot, but I can't make it slide. So, I need a teacher. Did I mention that tatting is a dying art form? There are no teachers in my world. I've even had to explain tatting to a few people.

3. Own - and drive - a 1971 Doge Charger. I think my son will eventually fix one up for me, but he'd better hurry! I may not be able to get out of a car like that much longer.

4. Be able to stay at home with my grandchildren all day - every day. I want to teach them to sew, to do decorative painting, crochet, hang drywall, change the oil in their car, and all the other cool stuff I can do.

5. Finish my family tree. This may be impossible. Just this week I took one line back to the 1300's (and found out I was a 2nd cousin 9x removed of George Washington). There always seems to be another branch to follow.

6. Finish my house. Before I die. I'd like to live there before I die too.

7. Create a stained glass window. To go in my house would be nice. But not necessary. I just want to create a window.

8. Drive a semi and a wrecker. Not far - just so I can say I did.

9. Build a pulling truck and a show truck (or car). Just so I can say I did.

10. Make quilts for all my children and grandchildren that they can hand down to their children and grandchildren along with a little family history. I also hope that one of them is interested in family history and the "treasures" we have.

So there, Jessi. Did any of these surprise you?

  1. Not really, but there are few I wish I could help with. Building a pulling truck is so far out of my comfort zone, I can't even wish to help with that.
