To Dream is to Live!

The first 1/4 of my life is probably over. The second 1/4 of my life will be consumed with raising kids. The last 1/4 of my life I will be rather old. This leaves the third 1/4 of my life- I must be really productive during this time in order to fulfill the list below. The Today Show had a broadcast on how women often fulfill their dreams in their's to that!

Things I Want to Do Before Heaven...

- do a huge zipline high above the ground like the one in Dubrovnik, Croatia over the water (as seen on The Amazing Race) or in the Austrian Alps (like Matt Lauer did on the Today Show)

- grape stomping

- white water rafting

- visit New York City for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, look at the decorated Christmas windows, and visit the Today Show

- be in the audience of a game show, preferably the Price is Right or Wheel of Fortune

- take classes in design and color

- be in the audience of a talk show, preferably Oprah, Ellen, Leno, or Letterman

- skydiving

- safari in Africa

- visit Paris (oh, what the heck, I might as well see the rest of Europe too!)

- take a trip around the world

- visit a factory to see how they make something that I like (ie. chocolate, crayons, poptarts)

- laser hair removal

- take a photography class

- hot air balloon ride

- live in a foreign country

- go on a cruise

Why I Hate Winter

1. most all of us sick at the same time

2. most all of us sick for extended amounts of time

3. most all of us sick again...and again...and again

4. getting out the door with three small children in warm clothes, sock, shoes, coat, hat,
gloves, the favorite toy of the day (x 3), and sippee cups. Oh wait...don't forget the
diaper bag (and the baby)!

5. cold weather

6. cold car

7. gets dark really early

8. it's too cold to use our sunroom/playroom unless we want to experience #4 listed above
minus the diaper bag.

The only thing I like about winter is I got a new coat. It's purple. I love purple.

(taken just after Ryan called his mom and groaned "All four of my girls are sick!")

She Strikes Again!

(in all fairness to Anna, I should mention that both incidents were accidents- this one occurred while I was on the floor changing Abby's diaper. Anna accidentally tripped while wearing her tap shoes and they ended up scraping against Abby's face. Poor Abby- she was even sick on top of everything)
