It is less than one week until my birthday. This birthday is going to be a tough one for me. One year until the big 5 - 0. I thought 30 was a tough one, not being married and no kids. Well, now I'm married and have two wonderful boys.
But now I am -- and have been for the past 3 years -- freaking out a little -- just a little. To help keep myself distracted, I decided I'm going to have a 50 before 50 list.
A year isn't really a long time, so this list is a smaller version of my bucket list.
My bucket list requires saving up money, and lots of planning
for vacations. It's a fun expensive experience list. With my "50 Before 50" list, I will stick with smaller items. Things I haven't done. Some are everyday items everyday people have done. When folks hear I haven't done that, or tried that, I get the reaction -- WHAT? You haven't...
So here goes -- My list of 50 things to do before I turn 50.
