Rediscovering Tina

There is life outside the pulpit

Bucket List January 15, 2011

When I said I was going to Post-a-Day in 2011, I temporarily forgot how hard it is to write for 15 minutes with an empty mind! After searching around the Internet for some writing prompts, I decided to go with writing a bucket list.

I realized the other day that I am turning 45 this year. Both my grandmother and my Mom died when they were in their sixties, so I recognize that I could have only twenty years or so left on this earth! I reckon I’d better get busy!

1. Meet Colin Firth– of course if I do this too early, my little heart may just palpitate right out of my chest and it would no longer be viable for transplanting.

2. Visit England– this has always been a desire of mine. In fact, before I met Steve, I used to tell people my husband was in England and he was walking over. Of course, meeting Colin Firth while in England would be fabulous!

3. Attend an Indianapolis Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium before Peyton Manning retires– I was blessed to see Brett Favre play at Lambeau before he went stoopid and went Viking.

4. Become debt free– please, Lord.

5. Get back  down to my wedding day weight

6. Record an album with me singing

7. Playing the drums in a band

8. Watch and own every movie Colin Firth has done.

9. Decorating cakes bigger and better.

10. Become a traveling evangelist- every time I go to the movies I imagine standing on a stage talking to crowds of people about Jesus.

11. Visit every state in an RV with the hubby, Rick, Linda, Beth and LeeAnne.

12. Take an Alaskan cruise and see the whales

13. Work as a DJ

14. Start a women’s bible study

15. Go on a silent retreat

16. Have one of my songs recorded/produced/noticed by Bill Gaither

17. Learn to play guitar better

18. Take a song writing class

19. Write a book to encourage others that there is life beyond sex addiction and pornography.

20. Trace my family tree– which I can do once I am debt free and can afford all the websites that have all the info!

There’s twenty of mine… now tell me about your bucket!

    I have one bucket on the back porch and two in the garage. That’s my bucket list.
