Nadia's Bucket List post has me thinking about all the things I want to squeeze into this lifetime of mine, so while I listen for the little one I might as well jot down some ideas.
Make it all up to my husband.
Play for a soccer team, just one more time.
Coach a soccer team.
Take a drama class, or at least a workshop.
Visit Vienna and write where the composers may have written.
Publish a poem.
Bring my family to see China in a way that is comfortable for them.
Go to a nude beach (ok, this isn't THAT important to me, but I feel I will have overcome something in accomplishing this).
Return to my parents the generosity they have shown to me.
Get much closer to my brother.
Teach my son what it means to be a good person and a honorable man.
Have a daughter!
I have to stop here and marvel at what I've learned about my dreams in writing this list. I guess I always did want to have a boy and a girl. There is something very balanced about that. A perfect example, though, of how some things cannot simply be willed to happen. We shall see what the future holds. Thanks Nadia, for encouraging me to think about this!
