The Next Thing on My List

Today I am 37 years old. Or at least that is what the kidnappers have brainwashed me to believe. Despite having been cursed by early onset puberty-I am reasonably certain that I am considerably younger. If you ask my children they will quickly tell you that I am a lovely 29 years old and that their father is 50. In case there was ever a doubt-they are geniuses.

I would love to write a flowery post about my beautiful day-but the fact is it was spent at medical appointments, plunging a toilet filled with an entire container of Kandoo wipes, cleaning up dog puke and doing a metric ton of laundry. I lead a charmed life.

I recently read this for my book club. Hopefully no one will be completing my list for me.

20 Things to do Before I'm 40

  1. Loose 60 pounds
  2. Have a tummy tuck
  3. Have my breasts put back where nature inteded them to be
  4. Climb a mountain
  5. Fall in love...or back in love...
  6. Feel confident walking into a room
  7. Get a new tattoo
  8. Have a relationship with God
  9. Go on a trip with friends
  10. Swim naked in the ocean
  11. Make someone elses wish come true
  12. Wear a dress
  13. Treat myself-without guilt
  14. Dance in the rain
  15. Play in the muds
  16. Sleep under the stars
  17. Ride a horse
  18. Say yes to my kids all day
  19. Accept love
  20. Do something in Vegas that stays in Vegas

  1. Sorry your birthday wasn't exactly beautiful and flowery... Such is life for mom, eh?

    My kids can't decide how old I am... It changes from day to day. Today I was 20! :D

    I'd love to cross a few of those things off of my list, too! ESPECIALLY #s 2 and 3!

    Happy Birthday, Zoe!

    Btw, I speak from experience when I say #3 is the best thing that I've ever had happen to me (breast reduction/reconstruction surgery) and it was totally worth the months of recovery too!!
