bucket list

I thought it would be fun to create a page like this.  It's just of some of the things I want to do before I die (I'm giving myself plenty of leeway and time to complete them all). :) If I remember, I'll try and put the dates of when these are accomplished up, and maybe post about them.  It should be fun!  I'll probably be adding to this list as I go, too.  Here we go!

35. Go see a Broadway musical.
36. Organize a family reunion.
37.

73. Go skiing.
74. Never be comfortable financially.  God will take care of it all, even when it feels like enough is not "enough". - definitely accomplishing this one lately, but obviously it's one that takes place over a lifetime.
