Weekday afternoons at the museum are notoriously slow and yesterday was no exception.  Having forgotten my book at home, I was desperate for something to do that would help pass the time.  Thanks to my iTouch and the museum’s wi-fi, I was able to create my very own bucket list.

  1. Visit all these places
  2. Watch all of Johnny Depp’s movies (50+ according to IMDb)
  3. Fit in a size 12
  4. Visit every continent
  5. Earn a Mater’s Degree
  6. Drive a 1967 Stingray Corvette
  7. Meet a famous person (preferably Johnny Depp or a member of the Red Wings)
  8. Work or volunteer at the Smithsonian
  9. Get married
  10. See a polar bear in the wild
  11. Live in Scotland
  12. Complete a scrapbook
  13. Learn to waltz
  14. See the Northern Lights
  15. Go 6 months without driving a car
  16. Learn American Sign Language
  17. Visit all 50 states
  18. Go white water rafting
  19. See the Red Wings play in Joe Louis Arena
  20. Celebrate Oktoberfest in Germany
  21. Ride in a hot air balloon
  22. Fly first class
  23. Read 100 books in one year’s time
  24. Sing karaoke
  25. Be a zombie in a zombie movie

Ok, so the Maintain, Don’t Gain idea did NOT work 😦 I came nowhere near losing 40 pounds before my birthday. I think I lost 6….wow!

I did manage to buy a house 😀

Weight Watchers starts as soon as I get back from my Spring Break trip to Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.  After all, I have a cruise in June and I want to wear a swimsuit without causing those around me to vomit.
