37 Things to Do Before Turning 38

a birthday, 30 years ago

Well, it’s coming.  My 37th birthday is almost here (although if you ask my mom, she will tell you that I am 33.  Not for my sake but for her’s.  Although, I am her youngest child so making me younger doesn’t really help her any.  She needs to make my brother younger but that’s a whole ‘nother topic), and with the approaching birthday comes the need to write my annual  birthday list.  What is a birthday list?  In short, a list I write every year of things I want to accomplish, enjoy, experience between this birthday and the next one.  And so, here is the list thus far and the motivating factor for that item making its way on to this year’s list.  What suggestions do you have for the list?  What would you put on yours?    Oh, and this birthday list idea?  Also Day 32 in Beautiful You).

    Wow! Those are some really awesome things to experience/do/try! I have a “deployment” list…I want to teach myself to sew and then make dresses for: littledressesforafrica.org, get to a healthy weight in a healthy manner, fully organize my ‘homeschool’supplies and create a new “daily schedule/weekly rewards chart” for each child, fins the rough draft of my ‘book’ and give it to at least 2 friends to edit/give feedback…
    I am also actively trying to weed through and live with/on less as a gift to myself, my family, my global neighbors, and the earth too!

    Rosie- I want to try acupuncture too. My friends from Greenville go once a month to Charlotte. Apparently the best in the southeast. We could go together!! I thought I would come for a weekend of fun and get acupuncture too. I’m so curious as well.
