Bucket list - revisited again

Time to revisit my bucket list. I revisited it in December 14, so I think it is time for some updates:-)

I was able to check a couple of items on my list , but not too much. I was able to fulfill my other big dream, that was not a part of my bucket list. We about to purchase a beautiful house with a large yard and a trampoline -which made my kiddos very happy :-)
The list is not in order. I think Tokyo, Havana, TED conference, and live long enough to spoil my grandkids are still my front-runners!

  • Be in a live audience during  Colbert Report (too late, but there is still a Late Show option)
  • Organize my attic - Ha! That got solved with the move to the new home. I finally opened the old trunk that I purchased with the house. It was full of  old linen and a sailor uniform.  I need to take it to The Grout museum- perhaps they will find it valuable to them.

  • Put a little free library in front of my house
  • Spoil rotten my grandchildren  :-)
