Now that we have both done our Bucket Lists, I am in the process of making plans to accomplish items on both lists in the next 1-2 years. Reality says that we will not be able to totally satisfy both Lee and I unless I manage to live for several more years. I will certainly try my darnedest to make it happen.
So here is my tentative plan for the at least a portion of the time from now until the end of 2014:
Summer 2013 —
Scandinavian Cruise (already booked)
Return to West Virginia for Italian Festival (unofficial reunion for many family members) — Reservations made!
Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees at the new Yankee Stadium — Tickets purchased!
Boston Pops Concert — Tickets purchased!
Spring 2014 —
Return trip to Italy to include the Lakes Region, the Cinqueterra, Tuscany, and several other places
Washington, DC with my girls, their husbands, and grandchildren
Summer 2014 —
Road trip to complete travel to all the 50 states for Lee and I (includes Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Iowa)
Fall 2014 —
Disney World with families
As I look at this list, I realize that it seems rather ambitious, but I am highly motivated since I have so little time left. I may even try to sneak in a few additional trips.
