I realized while I was watching the Mormon Tabernacle Choir last night that I broke the "think like you're seven" rule when I made my list. If I really made the list as if I were seven, I would have put "Be a member of the Tabernacle Choir" on it. Since I am now not seven, I figured that there is a 99.9 percent chance that I would never sing in the choir. I left it a little open in case they ever get desperate or go back to not having auditions. Perhaps I could be famous like Jimmy Stewart and lead the choir in the new movie "Mrs. Kreuger's Christmas" -- but being famous isn't on my life list.
So, for your reading amusement, here are some of the things on my list:
Enter the hymn writing contest every year.
Finish "Precious Sherie" series of books (about my life).
Ride my bike with Derek on the Provo River Trail.
Go on a service vacation with the family(after I've learned Spanish)
Write a rock song for Derek ( he's always wanted me to).
Make a jean quilt.
Learn to dribble a basketball between my legs.
Carve something (it had better be easy -- soap carving never was a skill of mine.
Write a book.
Learn how to cook food that's good that Dan can eat.
Go to the zoo with the kids again.
Feed the ducks (there had to be some I'd for sure accomplish)
Notice nice things about people and tell them.
Finally get 72 hour kits made and rotating.
Go to Finland with E&R and Der
Get those family photos organized (maybe I'd better lose my camera)
Have a nice flower garden at least one year.
Learn to play the guitar (more than the chords I keep learning & forgetting)
Though Derek said I can't really put this on the list since it depends on chance....
Ride on a plane with an apostle (preferably sitting next to them:)
There's lots more but I should perhaps put "Don't write things so long that people start yawning before the end".
