My Bucket List

There are some things I wanna do before I KICK THE BUCKET.
I never used to think about things like this, but it's high time I do.
No, I don't have any reason to worry about me dying anytime soon.
It's just that you realize, once you have had cancer, that

I know I want to have a lot of laughs!!
this one is my sis and me and my daughter, Krystal
(I would love to get rid of the wrinkles, but that ain't happenin)

I want to spend time with some of my favorite people
My CLUB friends,
two who now have cancer, but are fighting it.
(and winning , I might add)
One BIGGY on my bucket list is to get my hair back to this style,
I know it's kind of old fashioned, but I LIKE IT!

I want to see my son look like this again.
I want to welcome him back into "the fold".
The world is very appealing to him, and he has left the church.
I guess the people in the large and spacious building were laughing
and acting like they were having so much fun
and he couldn't stand it, he had to join them.

The BIGGEST thing on my bucket list is to WELCOME him back when he comes, I know he will.

I want to be at every baby's birth possible. This is a nephew, who now walks and talks, but in the next 6 weeks, I should get to see 2 new grandbabies be born, and I want to hold them and love them, and SMELL them.........I love that smell.

I want to spend time on our houseboat. There are some sweet memories on this boat, and I love being with my family on it during the summer, even though it is only for a few days.

I want to go to the beach and enjoy the water and the sun, and the kids, and the fresh salt air.

I want to look at white beaches and blue water

I want to let EVERYONE KNOW THAT I LOVE THEM, whatever it takes to do that, I want to do.
I want to cook, and bake and have people over to dinner,
Imma add more pictures as soon as my big kids come over to help me. I am kind of lost when it comes to getting this picture stuff onto my blog.

lots of stuff I want to do, even things that I don't think are really all that fun.
For instance,
1.I want to clean out my filing cabinet. I don't want to leave that the way it is.
It will take me a LOOOOONNNNGGG time to get it all straight, so I better get busy on it.

2.I want to get ALL my photos from the last 52 yrs of my life ( the first 20 yrs there are probably less than 100) put together in such a way that you can actually LOOK at them and enjoy them. I want them for me I mean, I want to look at them here and NOW!

3.get all my family and friends addresses updated and organized so I can find them. :)
4. I would like to make sure my girls know how to sew, yep even my married girls.
I love to sew and I don't think I took enough time to teach them.

5. I want to fix up my "grandma/grandkids" room. I want a wall for each of MY children and then have all of THEIR children's pictures ALL over that wall. I have started it several times and never gotten it how I like it, so I want to do that too.

As you can see, I have a lot of stuff to do, so I need to live forever.

I intend to live forever,
so far, so good

Now, I gotta go, got LOTS to do :)

I love you all and I will 4-ever,
Love, Karen
