(I might actually do more than one today…)

Today’s quote I am choosing this one:

You know all those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them.

I’m trying to do that this year- one of my 2016 goals. Live a little.

I want to go this bed and breakfast exotic animal farm inn. I tried to get Clayton to go, he always had some excuse not to go. I think if I had planned it anyway, and said I was going, he would have gone. I really don’t believe he said “no” because he truly didn’t want to go, I think it was more he tended to just relax at home with computer games on his days off. I should have done it, booked a room. He would have gone, and we would have had fun.

So, my plan is to go this summer. I actually want go in September. I went once with the family, back in 2004. It was a lot of fun, and I have been longing to go back. Well, I have a baby now, and in September she’ll be close to fourteen months (depending on when I go in that month) and my sister back in 2004 was only a month or two older than what my daughter will be, and she enjoyed herself.

Another thing I have been wanting to do is go to the St. Louis zoo, and to the arch. So, that’s another one of my end-of-summer plans.

My daughter is a little too young for a drive and an all-day trip to the Omaha zoo, so that’s hopefully happening in a year or two.

And I really want to go to Chicago. I’m figuring that one out… Not sure if I want to give my daughter to someone overnight, or go with her in a couple years. I obviously won’t let her stay the night with anyone yet, she is still nursing, and I wouldn’t want to yet anyway.

That’s just a few of the things I’ve wanted to do. I do regret not doing them sooner, but I am also excited to take my daughter.

Life is too short to not do what we want- we never know when death will come. Clayton had only just turned 32, and he’s gone. I thought we had so much more time, and I regret not doing more with him.


I have only just a minute, just sixty seconds in it; forced upon me- can’t refuse it. Didn’t seek it, didn’t choose it, I must suffer if I lose it. Give account if I abuse it; just a tiny little minute but eternity is in it!

That pretty much goes with the above.

Time is invaluable. Time is precious. Quit letting it go by without doing a thing. Make the most of it.

Sometimes I do like being lazy, and just kickin’ it around the house and doing nothing. But to live that way, just getting by, not really living… Don’t waste the gift you’re given.

I’m going to end with this one:

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Try, try, try- don’t give up. We got this.
