Summer Bucket List Revisited

It’s back to school time which means summer has ended for many. BUT NOT ME!! I usually count summer as June thru August. This year I’m going to follow the actual season and say that the end of MY summer will be September 21st. I’m mostly doing this because I made a Bucket List that I have largely ignored! But here is the updated version:

1) Ride the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel at night
2) Go to Silver Beach in St. Joe Michigan
3) Ride the carousel in St. Joe Michigan
4) Take my niece Abby Jo somewhere overnight
5) Go to the cabin in Eagle River Wisconsin
6) Go to ANY water park, preferably Deep River
7) Strawberry Picking
8) Read a minimum of 10 books (Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Me Talk Pretty Some Day, Rosemary’s Baby, The Haunting of Hill House, Flowers in The Attic, Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Hell House, The Kitchen House, 11.22.63, MWF seeking BFF)
9) Take the dogs to the beach
10) Take the dogs to the dog park
11) Continue to lift weights 3 days a week (I’ve had a few setbacks with this but mostly I’ve been doing it)
12) Become a certified Jazzercise instructor (This will be done at the end of September, maybe I’ll make a fall list)
13) Make Strawberry Jam
14) Can all things tomato
15) Finish my front/side of the house landscaping
16) Win the summer slim down competition
17) Get down to 140lbs regardless (crap! I really wrote this??)
18) Get pregnant
19) Visit friends in Mishawaka
20) Visit friends in LaGrange
21) Take a dear friend with me to the beach in New Buffalo some morning.
22) Mudderland 5k

I’m actually doing MUCH better with this list than I thought. However, finishing this as well as my August challenge will be difficult.

BTW the August challenge is going well but I seriously underestimated my work load. It is the most wonderful time of the year, when work for interpreters is PLENTIFUL! We celebrate this, however, sometimes our systems go through a bit of a shock. Exercise is the last thing on my mind when I start my day at 5:45am. I’m still planning to power through.
