51 things before 51
Let me start by saying, I didn't get anywhere near completing my list. That said, I did get some of the things done. I love making lists. I love the solidity it gives my goals. So when others were creating their lists, I imagined mine. I won't bore you with it all. Here are some of the things I did before (my birthday is coming up Sunday, I have some time left) my 51st.
* Make ONE list
*Highway drive TWICE
(alright I only did it once, to Donna Booshay's house. But it counts as twice because it was so far....and I had to face my truck fears) Yes I am the lady in the slow lane driving you all nuts!
*Kayak 3 times. More than thrice.....loving it mostly
*Drop 4 lucky quarters....(this was so fun. I highly recommend it. I left them on the bench outside our Dairy Bar ice cream store)
*Raise 6 kittens. (the list is supposed to be fun too!)
*Bike for 9 miles ( indoors counts......right?)
*Write 11 prayers (this I cheated on too. Geez Im cheating on prayer.....that must be a sin)
I turned a private blog into a prayer for help, so I am counting the posts as prayers. More like beseeching than praying!
*Research 14 stocks. ( I only researched 3 of them. Now the market is NO place for me...but I thought buying into McDonalds would be fun...some day...)
*Watch 20 minutes of C span. Sorry. It is a chore for me to watch c span...but I did it
*Read 28 comics. (I love them. I should read them more. Humor moves me.......)
*Drink 32 oz of V-8 juice. OKay I only drank 8 oz, and then wanted to throw up. It is the oddest stuff. I thought I could swap a vegetable and fruit for the drink.....nope. I'll go back to real chewing thanks..)
*Walk up 39 steps. Yup. Did this in Door county on a big old steep hill. I think I wrenched my left knee doing this THING.
There is time left. I can still
walk 8 miles
donate 15 things
Buy 17 lollipops
Plan Zachs 21st birthday
Write 50 tips for Ravelry.
do you have any quick ideas for me before Sunday? I need all the numbers I left out to succeed. (like 40 through 50 things....) Does eat 50 potato chips count? I think it should...
