40 before 40

I'm a week late on this fun list that the green 3 came up with but I still wanted to play. The idea is to make a list of 40 things you want to do before you are 40. First I have to think of where I will be at that time. In February it will be 10 years to 40, so I have approx 10 years 4 months to do these. {Did you notice how I still avoided typing the age I will be in Feb?} If all goes well, lol. I will have been married 20.5 years, my oldest daughter will have just turned 20 & my youngest daughter will be 16. {crazy} Ok here is my list, in no real order, just off the top of my head. Except the last one, that was my first one I listed :)

1. Take the girls on a fun vacation
2. Go on vacation with just hubby
3. Scrapbooks caught up for the kids
4. Exercise, staying fit
5. College fund in place

10. Learn to stress less
11. Make the most of the time I spend with the girls
12. Volunteer at the school as mush as I can
