What shall I do?

I know I want to run a 5k and half marathon. Okay, so I want to run, but I will end up power walking instead. Maybe try out some new ethnic cuisines. Travel to some new spots. Try some new classes. Support a new charity. Some may be exciting adventures, some may be boring. I welcome your suggestions for something new to try.

My thinking cap is indecisive...

I have a list of about 20 things to either do or look into so far.  Sorry Dan, I have no desire to go to Vermont and learn how to tap a maple tree, but the other suggestions were great.  While there isn't a lot that I currently do, I have found there is a lot I've already done (including knitting and making a souffle Angela).  I used to try and keep up with Martha Stewart until I realized that the real reason she went to jail was so she didn't have to do that stuff anymore.

There are several things in the works for next week.  My daughter will be home for spring break so wanted stuff we can do together.  But I'm a bit stuck on what to do to kick things off on my birthday.  I have something planned, but there is a chance it might not happen so I want a back up plan.  So far about the only thing I can think of is getting a body wrap and that's gonna set me back about $100.  I know it will be my birthday, but it's been ages since I've had a real spa pedicure so would rather splurge the $50 on that and pick up a new pair of shoes.  Besides, there's no one around to see my silky smooth skin after a wrap, but the sales staff at Nordstroms can admire my freshly polished toes as I slide them into pair after pair of expensive shoes, until I settle on that one inexpensive pair that made it's way into the mix.

I did have another thought, but was afraid it might end my quest at #1.  I've always wondered if PETA would accept a donation from me if I brought it in to their office wearing a fur coat while eating a roast beef sandwich?  Maybe I should make that my 50th thing I have never done before.


  1. Martha Stewart comment made me LOL.

    The things I've come up with for my list so far are:

    Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge
    Spend the night in Yosemite
    Visit a Ghost Town
    Make a homemade pizza including the crust (figure cooking counts if it's a totally new type of thing)
    Volunteer (where is TBD)
    Read a story/fable to my group at a staff meeting
    Knit/Crochet a scarf for the Special Olympics

  2. Oh forgot one:
    Learn to play a song on the recorder

  3. I vote for wearing the fur coat to PETA.
    Film it and put it on YouTube:)
