Sparklers with Hank? Check.

Say! I forgot to tell you that I checked another item off my Mighty Life List.

It was a good day. How are you doing on your lists?

    you don’t want to know. It’s a do over.

    You are on your way to the light it on fire stage of boydom. Sparklers are the gateway.

    Funny you should ask, I just re-examined mine yesterday! And it is most definitely a living document with slight tweaks here and there, adjusting to the curveballs of life (mba -> masters in a different subject altogether, documenting weight loss project -> full committal to a lap band, supporting ex-husband in new relationship -> watching him become a father). Life! Nobodies found a better alternative!

    chugging away! I’ve recently ticked another book off my “read all of margaret atwood” life list goal! See? http://betterinreallife.blogspot.com/2010/07/lauren-life-list-atwood.html

  • Lauren Says:

    oh also! In some ways I feel really rushed to get everyhting done because I HAVE MADE A LIST. but then I remember I’m, uh, 25 and I have time. Sometimes I have to remind myself to enjoy what’s around me and to not always be so goal focused. Does anyone else have to remind themselves this?

  • Sarah Says:

    I love the pp’s comment about sparklers as the gateway to light it on fire boydom. Oh I do not look forward to that stage! My 2 year old nephew burned off his right eyebrow trying to get a closer look at a sparkler on the 4th. Doh.

    Heads up, suddenly your pictures are coming through google reader at like 900 million times larger than normal.

    It’s an interesting change…

  • Meg Says:


    Oh, I’m sorry, was I yelling a little? Excited. It’s been on my list, rather officially, for several, several years. We’ll also be knocking off spend time beach on the Mediterranean while we’re at it. And eating good food… mmmm…

  • Lauren Says:

    Congrats Meg! I’m super jealous. HAVE SO MUCH FUN!

  • Jen Says:

    Today marks the day I get back to my life list now that the California Bar Exam is over. Since I last checked in I had engagement photos taken, graduated from law school, had a picnic, and went to a Cubs game at Wrigley field!
    I’ve got a few more things I might be crossing off this weekend in a post bar spree of life living. I’ll keep ya posted!

    I’ve devoted a big part of my summer to getting things on my list done. Items big and small have been crossed off and it feels really great. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation, Maggie.

  • Corve DaCosta Says:

    He looks so happy. Be the best parent you can.

  • Joelle Says:

    I finished the bathroom! Well, not finished, but about as done as it’s going to be until I save up some more money…

    And it’s lovely. The paint is beautiful. I have towel racks. And a TP holder. And a light that’s not just a bulb hanging from the ceiling!

    Thank you for all the inspiration.

  • Auntie Says:

    That first picture. What a beautiful child. The light from the sparkler illuminting his face – lovely.

  • Katie Says:

    I want to start a list but I’m only almost 18. Isn’t that a little early for me to make one?

  • Margie Says:

    Trade guitar for ukulele? Check. I’m now working on learning to play it well. Also, checked off doing a Storycorps interview with my mom. What fun it was! The summer life listing is going well over here in Indiana! Thank you for the inspiration, Maggie!
