1. Anxious to see what progress has been made on your Utah home. Please share pics!!

    Am I remembering correctly that your whole family met in Mazatlan last year? Hope you will have the very best trip. I know these weeks have been difficult so time on the beach in the sun is well deserved. Take me with YOU!!

    I need to clean out my poor laptop, too. It is fairly new but I have it gobbed up with so much stuff. I am sure it would welcome a little attention and ‘housekeeping.’

    Hope you and your siblings can find ways to make the difficult task of cleaning out your mother’s home more bearable. We have had to do it twice, once for both parents and once for my mom alone. I was thankful that my brother and sister and I love each other and our parents so much. It would be doubly difficult to do if we didn’t.

    Merry Christmas, sweet friend.

    • Hello Leslie. I will definitely keep you posted on the new home. You are correct, in June we took the whole family to Mazatlan. However, it looks like we are going to have to postpone this trip. My mother is deteriorating rapidly, and we just don’t dare leave right now. We’ll spend this time close to family and visit our Mazatlan friends another time. Merry Christmas to you, Leslie, and all the best in the New Year!

  2. Oooh, I want to see that movie, too! I read the book, but didn’t make it to the theater when it was playing. Will have to rent the DVD. Good job on creating your winter bucket list! I am debating whether to do one for winter. I probably will, but I may not put it together until after the holidays. Merry Christmas!

  3. Christie,
    Read in the comments about your mom’s condition and your postponed trip…sorry to hear. Sending caring thoughts your way…
    I enjoyed your list, especially liked that it was manageable and not yards long.
    I, too, am resolved to clean up the electronics a bit to see if I can hold on a little longer before replacing – it’s not really in the budget this year with the big trip planned across country. Maybe your Utah home will be done in time for us to visit you next winter when we are down that way…

    • I would love to meet you in person, Nancy. Let me know when your trip gets closer! As part of my effort to be present in the moment, I’m scaling back on my to-do lists, including my bucket lists. I like having the list to be sure I’m spending time on the things that are important to me, but I don’t want to be constantly thinking about what I need to do next. It’s a balance. 🙂
