Ten on Tuesday

I am 37.  
And 1/4. 
Lately, I've been thinking about where I thought I'd be at this point in my life vs. where I am.  
Totally different. 
Is that common? I'd like to think its common.  
For instance, I never, in a million years, thought I'd leave my career to be a stay-at-home-mama and, eek, housewife (that's what they classified me as the last time I went through customs.) But you know what? I wouldn't change it. Nope.
But I do have a list of things I'd like to do by the time I am fourty.
Shut the door, man.
That number gives me heartburn!
Anyway, this is my list:
10 Things To Do Before Age 40

Scuba Dive

Learn how to tango

Go on a roadtrip with girlfriends

Mardi Gras, baby. Mardi Gras! {but only if the Rigsbys join us}

At least start the serious planning of a vacation abroad with the kids.


Participate in something like the Dance Experiment, Improv Experiment, or Fear Experiment.  Or heck, just take a ComedySportz imrprov class!

Buy a pair of Lululemon yoga pants. {seriously. i've tried them on. my booty looks fab in them. as it should for that price. gag}

Learn how to use power tools (not a drill. I know how to use that. I mean like saws and stuff)

Compete in some kind of urban adventure race {ahem. AJR, are you reading this? There's a reason I linked to MSP :)  }

Your list is so much more interesting than my list!

heather said...

sounds like fun stuff! :-) and why do the great yoga clothes have to be so darn expensive???

Karri said...

Did you have a list, Sheila?? Where?

Heather - I don't know but it drives me bonkers. All the yoga pants I buy shrink right away. Likely all the ones I have bought have added up in cost to 1 pr lululemon!

Let us know when you're planning to do Mardi Gras. There's a good chance we'd go... for the main weekend before anyway.
