Six Years Later: Stacie’s Bucket List

It’s been about six years since I wrote my bucket list, and I’d like to share my progress (and lack thereof).

I’ve simply copied it from a previous post below, with notes and additions in whatever color this and this is.

Stacie’s Wanna-Do-Before-I-Die list:

  3. Have another baby. Yep.
  4. Make a living as a writer.
  5. Build my stockpile. Slowly but surely.
  6. Build a basement/storeroom.

  25. Meet any other relatives on his side of family (possible half-siblings or aunts/uncles/grandparents?).
  26. Get sufficient medical history if not meeting them.
  27. Get a horse, some chickens, a couple of cows, and maybe a cat (We already have two dogs one dog and two goats.). Cats–plural.
  28. Go gambling. Doneskees!
  29. Float the river (any river) again. Yup.
  30. Go parasailing.
