Shawnee's Bucket List

I found this cute little idea over at An Apron A Day/Confessions of an Apron Queen, and I wanted to enter her Vintage Apron Giveaways, so here's the beginnings of my own Bucket List. If you didn't know, The Bucket List was a movie from early '08 starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman all about things you want to do before you "kick the bucket" or pass away. I think my list will keep changing, but I've got a few to get started (and get entered-into-a-drawing-for-my-latest-obsession).
  • Own a home again
  • Visit Hawaii
  • Go back to Germany for a long visit (I had hoped to do this for our 25th wedding anniversary in 8/2010 but funds aren't looking so hot)
  • Go on a cruise
  • Be at a healthy weight
  • Not "have" to work
  • Be employed in ministry
  • Travel to Israel, Jerusalem and Bethlehem
  • Have a presentable house 90% of the time (I'm a big time clutter bug)
  • Meet (even from afar) my birth family (I've resisted trying to find them for years but I think I really would like to know)
  • See all my kids graduate college
  • Graduate college myself
  • Have grandchildren
  • Visit Washington DC, New York City, Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty

I see that I have a real need to win the lottery and live for at least another 43 years!

This is a great list! It would be great to travel to the holy land!

Travel to the Holy Land would be amazing! I didn't put it specifically on my list, I just put travel.

Could you email me and tell me how you put those great bullets along your list? I have trouble w/ the Blogger bullet feature.

I know what you mean about going back to Germany...I was there for 2 weeks at the end of summer 2006. I'd like to know where (in Germany) you went, and what parts you would like to visit if/when you go back!
