Life List Update

Thankfully my bucket is still "un-kicked". I am blessed each and every day with the chance to complete a few more things on my Life List.  

So, out of 100 things on my Life List, I have completed 4. The first one completed was researching my family tree.  Since then I have tackled 3 more.  I have made bread from scratch (which made the house smell incredible), we bought a flat screen tv (and now we can't afford satellite thanks to Dave Ramsey), and we own a swimming pool (granted it is above ground & only 15 ft x 4 ft but it is a pool).  I really have to get busy with this thing. I suppose one of my items to-do should have been "complete something". I have got to keep myself focused. Goals are only good to have if you work toward them.
