33 things for an almost-35 year old
About 18 months ago I put together a list
of the top 33 things I wanted to do while I was 33. I’m creeping up on 35 now and not only have I
still not completed the 33 things but I haven’t moved the link at the top of my
blog. In order to wrap up the list and
redo my blog, here’s a recap of what did and didn’t happen. Maybe I’ll do another list when I turn 35…
Spend one day with Addi the week she starts kindergarten, getting a mani/pedi,
lunch, and having some mommy/daughter time. 2.
Meet up with my great friends I made while prego with Sam – Also known as my
birth board friends.
3. Run a race with jay. Jay likes running about as much as he likes my cooking.
Get a new pet for our family. 5.
Go to Disney with the kids. 6.
Run a ½ marathon. 7. Go
to a parade. 8.
Drink a dirty martini. 9.
Support a charity. 10.
Plant a garden. 11. Go on a weekend trip
with just Jay and I. 12.
Buy a new swimsuit. 13. Take a personal day and only
do things for myself. Done.
14. Cook an entire meal for my
family, and serve it all fancy like a restaurant. See #3 above.
15. Detail and wash my
car by hand. By MY hand. I realized, I hate
cleaning. So I bought a new, clean car instead.
Go see Oprah. Learn to sew. Why sew when you can tie knots? New post coming
Do something selfless for someone else. 18.
Take my cat to the vet. 19.
Have a date with just Sam and I.
20. Play in a sprinkler.
Hmmm... Maybe I SHOULD have done this. I did
get sprayed by the hose a few times...
Have a cookout.
22. Actually read one of the Charles Dickens
books I claimed to read for Oprah. I read the
Cliff Notes. Does that count?
Paint a room in my house. 24.
Join a gym. 25.
Teach the girls how to swim. 26. Clean out my
jewelry box. Done - but didn't take any pictures. 27.
Go on a spontaneous road trip with the family. 28.
Clean out my Facebook friend list and delete the bad apples. Done, and now I
need to do it again!
29. Bake an apple pie from scratch.
I made an attempt at this - well, I looked up a recipe. Then Jay informed me
that Sam's pies are better, cheaper, and less messy than doing it myself. And
it got him another trip to Sam's. Win win.
Buy a fancy purse without apology.
31. Go to a movie
alone. Ha.... Yeah, this was a stretch goal if
I ever heard one.
Clean out all four bedroom closets in my house. 33.
Blog as I hit these milestones. Done!
