An Update on my Bucket List

Well, let's just say that I haven't gotten very far.  I finally saw Adam Levine in concert with my girls.  It was so much fun.  I sold some doodles and made it to Europe.  And, yes, I am now past Level 200 in Candy Crush!

Three years since I wrote this list and I can see that some of my items are things I'm no longer interested in doing.  I can take them off, right.
(Updated January 6, 2021)
For instance.  I no longer want to learn to groom dogs, ride a mechanical bull, nor take a week off of all things technical (I love it too much.)

I would also like to add a couple of things.  For instance:  Watch all Oscar nominated videos before the Oscars is aired each year, learn how to sew a zipper into something, live authentically to who I am inside, get healthy for my grandkids and myself, and smoke weed... just once!  (Don't be mad)

So, you see, the thing about a bucket list is... it changes.  It probably will change each year or sometimes even day to day.  We evolve.  We change.  Change is good!

• Plant a full on vegetable garden...and keep it alive! (No longer interested... no space)
•Visit Washington D.C

•  Teach school abroad for at least one year.
• Learn to ski (I live in Utah!  I should know this by now) (Now my knees couldn't handle it so... maybe sledding?)

Get to level 200 on Candy Crush (so sad)

A lot can change over the course of seven years!

I'm pretty sure you've walked through a drive-thru. K-Bar-B perhaps? or were you just taking out the garbage for Kareldean?
