Life List

Crossed a few things off the life list this spring:

Build and maintain a sod roof (Spring 2010) [still working on the growing part but I'm crossing it off because the vast majority of the initial work is completed]
■ Attend an Olympic Games (Vancouver Winter Games, February 2010) [Awesome, incredible, fantastic, overpriced]

Here are the items that I'd like to take a crack at this year (including a few new ones):
□ Learn to knit [Paging Megan. ]
□ Hike to a fire lookout and spend the night. Look for fires.Or just enjoy the view.
□ Paint a house [our house needs it, desperately]
□ Go watch a hamster race [This one has been on the list forever, thanks to Heather Fields]
□ Tour a temple in Southeast Asia [This is a big maybe. But we're going to try for the far east this year]
□ See Old Faithful in Yellowstone.
□ Swim the width of Lake Washington (approx 1 mile). Convince my dad to go with me. [the date is set. Our team is ready. I am a-practicing!]
□ Stay with Chris at the Sierra Club’s Clair Tappan Lodge near Donner Lake. A Frey family tradition.
□ Write a letter to myself to be opened in 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years. [I think I wrote the one year version. Now I just have to find it. And work on the other two]
□ Think of a place where you’d want your ashes to be spread [Yes, this is totally morbid. BUT, it came up the other day and Chris is all set to go [meaning that he has a location]. So I need to have a place too. Plus, I'm all about planning for this kind of thing. Which reminds me, it's about time to update our will. Have you updated your will lately? Including your living will? So very important, folks.]

And there you have it. The goals have been set. 
And, begin!
