Big Day Tomorrow

Tomorrow, January 3rd 2013, I will turn 50. I don’t think I mind being that old, at least not very much. What I do mind are the things I have not accomplished by now. I have this overwhelming feeling I should have done more by now. I have no idea what more or how more or why more. I just have a feeling.

I said in my last post I was not going to do a New Year’s resolution this year. But now that I realize I am going to be 50 tomorrow, I believe I want to do something that is like a resolution but not quite the same. Perhaps more like a bucket list. Not a list of things to do before I die, even at 50 I am hoping I am only half way through this life. Maybe a list of things to do this year. Things I really want to do/learn/whatever. In this year. Some easy to carry out and some that are a stretch. That’s it… I want to come up with a couple of stretch goals for my 50th year.

Maybe by tomorrow I will have some ideas and I will share. Or maybe you have some ideas?


New Year, New Effort. Oh wait, that is tomorrow.


My Jubilee


  1. I’m a year behind you, sister. I want to just keep doing all the stuff I’ve been doing — raising my kids, hoping someday to have grandkids (i know how much you love yours 🙂 ) and spend lots of time with them, gardening, writing, hanging out with Steve-o. Travel around the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Remember to pay the bills. Oh, and find a full-time job and work for the next 20 years, speaking of bills! Or win the lottery. Either way.

    Happy birthday, honey. Love you.
