    Can you list what ten things you would like to accomplish before you leave this earth. They dont have to be important to anyone else but you. Also mark off the ones you think you have accomplished already.

    Wow, SpeedoGuy -- you better hurry up and drag your family up Mt. McKinley before it's too late. Might be difficult to get the house up there too... :biggrin1:

    - - - - -

    My list would always be changing... so it's kind of hard to say, but a few items that haven't changed are...

    -- Spend a year or two on the NYT Bestseller list

    -- Meet Stephen King... and he actually knows who I am!!!

    -- Win a Newberry Award cuz I'll never be good enough to get the Caldecot (I write/illustrate kids materials)

    -- See my kids grown up and leading lives of their own choosing

    -- Being able to be there for them when things fall apart

    -- Have many, many. MANY special holidays with my future grandkids

    -- Live long enough to receive an innoculation against freckles and sunburn so I don't have to wear sunscreen or avoid the sun (I'm a red head)

    -- Learn how to talk on a cell phone WITHOUT always missing my exit

    -- Get a "cyber home" that cleans itself and takes out the trash

    -- Continue to have my insanely good health!


    :wink:

    (things I have not done yet. I'll add more as they come to mind.)

    #1. Move to Florida...I am seriously considering it soon.
    #2. Go to Egypt to see the Pyramids.
    #3 Go to Paris, London and Venice.
    #4 Find a great boyfriend.

    #4 is beyond my control, but I really should do the other 3, because you never know when your time is up.

    1. Get over my insecurities.
    2. Find true happiness.
    3. Have real peace of mind.
    4. Fall in love.
    5. Get laid.
    6. Have some true friends.
    7. Find a good job.
    8. Move somewhere that has better weather.
    9. Visit Yellow Stone National Park.
    10. Visit Europe.

    The first three are most important. The next three are a close second. The last four would be nice, but don't really matter. Probably none will ever happen, just wishes and pipe dreams...
