i'm taking you to the salt lake when you come in june so you can cross something of your list, maybe next summer we can "visit the land of our ancestors" and. . you don't think if you have a daughter you might like to sell girl scout cookies? didn't you sell them your one year as a daisy? good job, i was just buying myself a little time too :) and. . . i thought you and i went in a separate truck behind the ambulance? i knew i stayed with you, and i didn't think we both went in the ambulance. .. . also, i've decided I have grown my own veggies, well, i've tried with an avocado when small, so i'm checking that one off. . .with hopes for REALLY growing them this year or next. . . love ya

You can check "met someone famous" off your list...you've met me. By the way Rebecca Wells who wrote YaYa Sisterhood was at the Gospel Concerto the other night....just rounding out that cultural, etc. diversity.

You've never taken a non-sick sick day? You are a better woman than me. :)

Grannie Annie said...

I'm pretty sure you took "mental health days" from college....very pretty sure. Oh, I had another one and forgot it... Just my attempt at jogging your memory, so that your list can be as accurate as possible.
