Last year, my annual bucket list was about infusing more fun into my life. My carefree lifestyle had been lost in the shuffle, and 2018 allowed me to (mostly) figure out how one works multiple jobs and takes care of a high maintenance parent with Alzheimer’s and still live their best life. This year, the pendulum swings back and I’m ready to get down to business. … Continue reading The 2019 Bucket List – REVEALED
Before I post my official goal list for 2019, I’m going to have a little fun. I only just crossed off a couple items from 2018 a couple days ago and need a breather before leaping into a whole new set of annual goals. Thus, today’s post is for a very niche audience. If you don’t care about Game of Thrones, you can tune out now. … Continue reading The Bucket List of Champions
For 2018, I checked off a total of 18 realized goals and am not even a little bit sorry about the five that didn’t make the cut. Even more notably, this means that in my time blogging, I’ve completed 108 goals. Before I publish my 2019 list, I’ll review what 2018 had in store. I had some big ups, and some really, really big downs. Hey! … Continue reading My 2018 Bucket List in review
As there are only five hours left in 2018, it was really down to the wire on this one. After cranking out my final cycling miles today, I sat down for my final art lesson. Last week I posted about starting a set of classes on Udemy.com on human anatomy and proportions (Art Class #1), which was only about an hour long. Over the weekend (and … Continue reading #8 – Take three art classes. Check.
If you’ve been paying attention, you know that I just cheated. Technically, this very long, arduous goal was to cycle 2000 miles, and *surprise* I only did 1913. But the origination of this goal is important, and while I’m 87 miles away from 2000, it’s still a win. Last year when I was finalizing my 2018 list and finally leaking the details to my husband, … Continue reading #19 – Cycle 1913 miles. Check.
One of my favorite things to do every winter is cook a turkey. It harkens back to my big couponing days, and while I don’t regularly clip coupons like I used to (hence the blog title), I still like to go all out once or twice a year. Right around Thanksgiving, Safeway & Albertson’s do a big promotion where if you spend $150 in groceries, … Continue reading #10 – Learn how to make a prime rib. Check.
One of my goals this year is to take three art classes, and as the end is just two weeks away, it’s now or never. What does three really mean though? I had to find a way to define this for myself. In person? Online? A progressive course? A one and done? (Hint: wine & paint night does not count as an art class). While taking a … Continue reading Art Class #1 – Anatomy Proportions
