A couple of years ago I made a list of 41 things I wanted to do before I turn 40. I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked but a lot of it is pretty over the top. But last week I was able to cross off one more item, #35-Meet Tai's dad and his brothers and sisters.
Sadly it wasn't for the best reason, Tai's dad fell and wound up in the hospital. He's stable now but it was kind of touch and go at the beginning. But we took off last week for Southern California. I was excited to meet Tai's brothers and sisters (all but his oldest sister). I wish I could have met his father under better circumstances but what can you do.
I'm behind on reading my blogs but I got tons of reading done. Three books closer to the magical 100th book.
Tomorrow I'll post about the food we ate (really the only non-hospital thing we did). I was glad to meet the rest of Tai's family and be there for his dad but I'm so glad to come home. I like sleeping in my own bed.


  1. Even if it was not for the best of reasons, you still got to meet them so that was nice. I hope he gets better

  2. I was always afraid of making lists of things I want to do before I turn 40. But sometimes I feel sooo tempted. Just to be able to cross over some of the items on the list and be able to say "I've done it!"

  3. As a list lover and one who created a list of 40 things by 40, bravo! I didn't complete everything on my list, but life happens. And it's all good. :)

    Sorry your travels weren't for happier reasons, but glad that you got to meet family.

  4. Glad to hear that his dad is doing better! I loved your photos and the food!

  5. Even though the circumstances weren't joyous, I think it's wonderful that you finally got to meet Tai's dad and siblings. Not to mention it's great that you can cross something off your list! I hope Tai's dad continues to improve!

    I made a list of 101 Things to do in 1001 Days and I'm regretting the length of that list! Maybe I ought to downsize it to 50 things to do before I'm 50 but OMG I can't think about that birthday... sheesh. Ouch. It hurt to even type that for crying out loud.


Shiny! I love comments.
