It has been a long, long time since I’ve really looked into the future and had any sort of bucket list. This Spring I do!
A short getaway . . . maybe even two
This move was a temporary assignment for Mr. Judy. 13 years later . . . still, our plan has never been to retire here. The only thing really keeping us here at the moment is my family. Where do we want to retire to? We don’t know, so it’s time to start exploring. We do have a list, so I hope to get to a couple of places this year — although just one this Spring.
The other Spring getaway? If they have an opening, we hope to visit our friends in ME again. They book up quickly though, so we shall see!
Return to Hiking (and not just at Olana!)
I know this may be a slightly hard sell with Mr. Judy and the price of gas these days. Just getting him to agree to a getaway wasn’t easy. It will probably take a while, since mud can be really hard with Bandit in tow. Hopefully we can add some more local hikes to our tally.
Shocking, right? I even have one in mind, but for me, it will always be a last minute sign up. There’s the weather and there’s whatever might be going on with my mom. When I went to stay a few days in February because my mom’s aide had a doctor’s appointment, she missed the appointment. So it’s been rescheduled.
She might get the same temporary aide again, in which case I probably wouldn’t have to stay long. Maybe only one night. Just sharing to illustrate that these things are not always in my control.
I want a relatively small race where I don’t have to be crowded with a lot of people inside. Most likely a 5k. The target race right now is a fun run, with dogs allowed, so it could be a little frustrating — or it could be a ton of fun. Stay tuned.
My list is pretty simple, but if all of those things happen, I’ll be a happy camper. I’m not sure this other item is really a bucket list item, but it sort of is: I want to try to get a student or two that wants to do Yoga privately with me — online.
I hope within 5 years we can move and have a fresh start. Our time here saw the passing of my FIL, my Dad, by the time we move my Mom, too; and all 4 of our TX furkids. While there are many good memories here, and I’ll miss the friends I’ve made here, it’s time for a fresh start.
What’s on your bucket list?
This week I am also joining up with the new Runners’ Roundup linkup.
