This Years Bucket List

I have tried for years to do a bucket list and have tried to make some checkmarks on it.  It has not been going that well. Sure, i have done some fun things and got to travel and enjoy spending time with Liz and Peanut, but I put off things for me. Liz says that i need to start doing things for myself and to enjoy what I used to do or feel like I need to do.

The list is varied and not long. It is a mix of emotional, physical, mental and spiritual things that I want to accomplish this year. Some will take hard work and dedication and some will be pretty simple. But I want to make this year a great year for not only myself, but for Liz, Peanut and everyone i love and care about.

#1. Lose weight. I am not putting a number or a specific weight. I don't need that. I just want to feel good for me, and when i am there, I will know. This will be my main goal for the year. Its time i focus on it. I want to be around for a long time and right now with the way my body is acting, its needed.

#2. Draw more. I used to love to draw. I have done some painting and little sketches here and there the past few years, i just need to focus on it and do it. I was pretty good before i stopped.

#3. Listen to music more and watch less TV.

#4. Go for one hike a week. It could be the Logan River Trail. the Wind Caves , White Pine Lake, China Wall or any other area that i enjoy.

#5. Go camping 2 or 3 times with no phone service, internet or alarm clock. Just some food, books, sketch pad, fishing pole and my camera. Decompress with no distractions.

#6. Read one book a month. It could be more, depending on the book subjects or series that I choose.

#7. Take 2 or 3 trips with just Liz and I.

#8. Daddy Daughter Date night once a month with Peanut.  She does want to do a bigfoot hunt with me one night. * As you know, i am a believer *

#9. Show love and caring for the friends and family that i have neglected.

#10. Smile more, pray more, and be Happy a lot more.

Like i said, its not a long list. I might add to it or take some away. Depending on how things line up for me and our situations. Things change around here a lot.
