I Guess This is Turning Out to Be 41 for 41, Instead of 40 for 40!

It almost seems meant to be that I'll be finishing this list (hopefully!) while I'm 41, instead of 40! I was going through the original list this morning to count how many items I had left and realized that I had made the mistake of numbering two items with the number 23. So, I actually have 41 items on the list!

I only have 18 more items to go!!

Finally Made it to the Texas State Fair!!

Although, we couldn't really afford it, I didn't want to let another year go by without crossing this item off my list! It really is a BIG fair! After 5 hours of walking, eating, and riding rides (not necessarily in that order!), we were all exhausted and had sore feet. So, we left early and made the two hour drive home and relaxed the rest of the afternoon!

At 41, I attended my first protest!

The Occupy Wall Street movement has been spreading across the country, and around the world, over the last month. Almost 50 of us demonstrated in our small city of Tyler, Texas on Saturday, October 15th! It was an interesting experience and I think we'll probably be doing it again! The picture was taken by the local newspaper and I didn't even know it until I saw the link to the article!
