Fumbling Towards Forty!

Today, I turned 39 years old. I have been raising children for almost 18 years and still have 12 years to go. Because of my "Mommy" status, I don't always have time to drop whatever I am doing and do what I want to do. Sometimes, it takes making plans months in advance and juggling four other lives to find time to celebrate the things I like...

So, having said that I have decided to make my last year in my 30's something to remember. I have a list of 40 things, I will either do or see in the next 365 days! Here they are in no particular order, except for the last, which is my 40th birthday party.

If there is something on this list that you want to do, let me know, the more travelers on a journey, the more fun the adventure.There is nothing on this list earth shattering or life changing really, but it will force me to set aside time for me to focus on me. The things on this list should be easy enough to complete, if I allow myself to make ME a priority.

Thanks for all the birthday you all!
