My bucket list

I have a few things that I have written down and hid away as things I want to do before I die.  But I was thinking, maybe I should set my sights a little lower.  Who knows if I will ever be able to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef or get to Australia at all.  This year I really want to live. The truth is tomorrow isn't promised to us, so we have to make today count.  And with my health issues, this rings even more true.  So I'm going to make a bucket list for 2011.  Here's my list of 15 things I want to do this year.  Yes I know, some are simple things.  And some are silly.  But its my list and this is what I came up with. 
  1. Make a blanket for The Linus Project
  2. Raise $500+ for Donate Life again
  3. Get my drivers licence
  4. Take the boys fishing
  5. Fire a gun
  6. Read 10 books
  7. Spend the night in a 5 start hotel
  8. Write more letters to my loved ones
  9. Be a vegetarian for a week
  10. Find our own place
  11. Donate to Locks of Love
  12. Lose 20 lbs
  13. Go camping
  14. Get 5 people to be registered donors
  15. Volunteer
So there is my random list.  What do you think?  To easy?  I'm excited!  What are some things you would like to accomplish this year?


  1. I never had a bucket list, but since my heart transplant it's a pretty simple on.

    1) Never waste a day, because I'd be wasting a miracle.

    2) Spend time with family at every opportunity.

    3) Do everything I can to support other on this long transplant journey; from advocating the benefits of organ donation to holding some one's hand in the ICU.

    God Bless!!
