My life list

Maggie over at Mighty Girl is famous for her life list and she is encouraging us all to make our own. I've made a lot of lists in my day, but I tend to work on a year-by-year basis. A LIFE list? Like the REALLY BIG THINGS? It's a bit intimidating. But, here goes. And I fully reserve the right to add, edit and change my mind.

The Life List

Have a goat
Spend Thanksgiving serving food to people in need
Raft through the Grand Canyon with my family
Take my kids to Yosemite
Write an honest novel that makes me proud

This is pretty much the awesomest list ever, though I'd have to add the cliche "swim with dolphins."

PF: Thanks! I'm mixed about swimming with the dolphins. It would be awesome, but those poor dolphins--they should be allowed to chose who they want to swim with.

That's a great list!!!
But... if your step-father likes the Giants, then it's the Superbowl you want to take him to :)

San Francisco Giants! I'm no sports fan but I do know my baseball from my football!
