60 Before 60

I saw on another blog I follow where the blogger had created a goal list of 30 things they wanted to do before they turned 30 years old.  I thought that was kinda cool, but since I'm a wee bit older than 30, I created my own list.  The stuff on my list is way cooler in a lot of respects, because I'm so much closer to retirement age, so I can concentrate on more fun stuff than someone younger.  Still...it's a LOT to accomplish in only 7 years....so I'd better get crackin! :)

These seem to fall within five categories:
  • Health/Fitness
  • Travel
  • Home Renovations
  • Financial
  • And a few personal ones, just 'cause. :)
That's ok with me. At some point, I may try to reorder these in some fashion other than grouping them per the above, but for now, they are in no particular order.  As I make a goal, I'll replace the category with the date accomplished, and watch 'em tick off one by one! I love checklists...
