Jerri Ann over at Trash Can Bloggers has given the Trash Can Bloggers a writing prompt this week of:

Seven Things I Want to do Before I Die

I know many folks have bucket lists – I don’t.  I don’t have what I would consider a “real” bucket list, because for me, I know realistically that the things on my list wouldn’t happen.  I’m not being a pessimist here, but my life has been devoted for the past 29 years to caring for my son (he is severely disabled), which is a 24/7 job that is very hard to get away from for any length of time now that he’s an adult.  Aside from that, I certainly wouldn’t ever consider doing anything that would risk the possibility of me dying sooner than later – like sky diving – I’m good on that despite that it looks so relaxing.

That said, I do have some aspirations, and mine surely aren’t elaborate, but hey, it’s my list, and they’re my dreams, and I’m what you could consider a conservative kind of gal.

  1. Go back to Las Vegas
  2. Take my son to Foxwoods (my dream, but needs to happen before I die or before I lose him again)
  3. See my daughter get married (she tells me THAT will NEVER happen)
  4. Enjoy my grandchildren (I’m told she’s NEVER, EVER having any babies…no matter what!)
  5. Go on a cruise
  6. Go to Disney with my daughter
  7. Visit New York City – preferably with my sister and daughter

As you can see – my aspirations aren’t anything extreme, but that’s okay because as long as I can live long enough to see these things become reality – I will still have time to work on another list 🙂

What’s on your list?

  1. Feeling pretty guilty. Have done all but the cruise but I have no want, need, or desire to go on one. My seven go up on Monday:)
