I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about life lately and all of the wonderful stuff that we still have left to do with our life and I am still trying to figure out what that is.
I mean, I’ve experience life (when all three of my kids were born~and now three Grandkids).
I’ve also experienced death (my first husband died in a horrific truck accident) and my mother who was sick for a long time with migraines and the like.
Ive traveled from the West Coast to the East coast. We drove one way over, and another way back. (and I get car sick, go figure).
I was rich once. (no kidding), but I was too young to have that responsibility and the money’s gone now.
I’ve had a million and a half cars (sure seems like it) and I don’t drive. I owned a 1980 Z28 Chevy Camaro. I owned it for a total of three weeks. It got totaled and hauled to the Chevy graveyard in the sky. It was an absolutely beautiful car, though. A beautiful blue metallic on the outside and white beautiful seats on the inside, and, of course, a killer stereo system that I wouldn’t mind having again, either.
The next one: a Fiat X1/9. A beautiful white car, and I can’t remember the year. That thing got driven to the ground. A good friend, at the time, drove me around in that forever. I will never forget that little car.
My first husband bought me a 1963 push button Plymouth Valliant, white. (I don’t know why all my cars had to be white.) That was a nice car. You’re probably thinking it couldn’t make it uphill, well, that, my friend is where you are very wrong. It got wrecked, too. (In the wreck my husband and I were in).
There had been several other cars in my life time, but, those are the first three that come to mind.
I’ve gotten off track haven’t I? With that said, I’ve done a lot with my life. I am successful that way. I’ve finally accomplished having a wonderful relationship with a wonderful man and sharing his kids and my kids have been a wonderful blessing in my life. (try number four at marriage.)
I’ve also self-published books.
Flew in a plane, went on a train etc.
Beat the odds at a miraculous health problem that could have definitely killed me, or injured me, at the least. (and I hardly have any recourse from it at all).
I went ghost hunting.
Now, I’m thinking what else is there? This is when I came up with
The Bucket List:
1. Disney Land 2. Traveling. There are some states I have yet to see: Maine, Iowa, Arizona, New York, etc. 3. There are states I need to go back to: Idaho and California. (for once I’d like to go to California when I’m not running away from my parents and for once I’d like to go to Idaho to visit relatives (not for a sad funeral.) 4. I’d like to own a manufactured home and a mobile home (so I can travel). 5. I’d love to own a horse. 6. Work on a ranch. 7. I would love to meet Stephen King, Alan Alda, Kevin Bacon, Whoopi Goldberg, Jodi Foster and there are so many more.
I guess I’m covered for busy for the next couple of years….and still take care of children and write my books! I’ll let you all know how it goes…Do you have a Bucket List?
