That is a cool list! It's nice to look back and realize...hey, I'm *living* life. Even though it sometimes seems like all we do is take care of our kidlets...:)

It's a fun list. I liked the giggle fit one show I was in in high school I was, well, a dead body. Thankfully my laughing fits were only during rehearsals. I was fine during performances. :)

You've never climbed a mountain? It's time for you to do that.

And what's the deal with writing your own computer language (#140). Do people do that in their spare time?

girlymom said...

This is a great list- reminds me of a few things I should get to work on!

LaskiGal said...

Stumbled upon your blog -- noticed you had three very young boys. I only have one (nearly 5 months) and am amazed that someone does this with more than one! I also have a hubby named Todd. I know, the things that we get excited about.

I loved the list. I just can't help but think about all the things I've got to do, need to do, could do, should do . . . ugh.

melissa said...

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
