Really this should have been posted yesterday, but I never got a chance to. So it’s more like 29 until 30, but who’s counting? Besides me? 30 used to sound so old to me when I was in my early 20’s. I remember my sister in law turning 30 and thinking that she was so old. Now I realize I thought that because she already had like 10 kids. Ok not really, just 4, but it sure did seem like a lot. Anyway. 30 does not seem old now to me, nor do I feel old. Unless you bring up Webkinz or those Zhu Zhu pet thingies, then I feel like an old geezer because I am clueless about those.
But yes, I am turning the big three-oh next month. Yikes. Originally I had wanted to make a list last year of things to do before I turned 30. Well, that obviously didn’t happen. So instead, how about a list of 30 things to do this MONTH before I turn 30? Note: not all will be spectacular or life changing. I mean, I only have a month here. Alright? Here we go!
1-Read a classic novel (suggestions?)
2-Run 30 miles (not all at once!)
3-Learn how to play a new hymn on the piano
4-Start a journal for my girls
5-Read a church book (suggestions?)
6-Sew an article of clothing for me that I will actually wear
7-Send a handwritten letter to a friend
You know, I’m having a hard time coming up with 30 things that I can realistically do in a month. I could add things like “finally iron the mountain of Derrick’s shirts that he’s been waiting for for over a year” or “throw out expired condiments” but that seems like cheating. I wanted to do things that would make me stretch a little. So maybe we should just stop at 7? 7’s a good number anyway…it’s my birthday! If I think of anymore I’ll add them.
