Bucket List

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Maybe it's because my children are wearing me out and I feel like I'm on death's doorstep, or I'm just nearing my mid-life crisis, but I've been thinking a lot about my "bucket list" lately. It could also be due to the fact that I'm no longer pregnant and am slowly getting my body and energy back and realize there are still things I can actually do with my life besides make people. 

Here is my list in its current standing:

-Buzz my head
-Run a marathon (NYC, preferably)
-Live overseas 
-Learn how to sleep unmedicated
-Be a published author
-Be a foster mom to a teenager
-Live a peaceful, hopeful, joyous life despite my loss
-Sing lead vocals in a swanky jazz band
*this list isn't that exciting

I know there are more things I've thought of for my list before (some I've already accomplished), but my brain is shutting down for the night. 

Oh, and what does this photo of Vic have to do with my post? Nothing. 


  1. Hahahaha! Love your list. Intrigued by the shaved head thing... I have said that to myself on bad hair days. Love the photo too... even though it has nothing to do with the post.


  2. Love the picture of Vic. And the list....what a Great idea,,,

  3. I LOVED being bald! Josh prefers I not do it again, though. If you do it, bic-it! So liberating! It's a good list, Molly...I agree with the sleep, the living peacefully, those are big. Can't sing, won't run. But I'd like to see you again someday! That's on my list... Oh, funny thing: did you know "live in PC" has been on my list since college began eons ago? *sigh*

  4. I am a big journal keeper so I have lots of bucket lists I've made over the years. So many lofty goals, some achieved, some.....well, let's just say I'm still working on the lists. Yours is great and they are certainly achieveable. Your wit and humor are way fun. I have long hair (still) and at My AGE (almost 60)!! Shocking but true. There are days when a bald head might be just the ticket for me. I wondered why a bald head would be on your bucket list but then again, it could be very liberating. LOL I like the Vic pix. Funny....Have a wonderful day.

  5. First of all, I love the picture.
    Second of all - buzz your head?? Me too!!
    You are brilliant, Molly & I'm delighted we are now Facebook friends. Srsly. :)

  6. My Mom always says, "Life is long, you can have it all...just not all at once." Good to know since I feel like my life is groundhog day and I don't do anything exciting ever! I have a lot of life left to look forward to accomplishing my bucket list!
