Ready or not...

You know how the song goes..."I still remember when 30 was old..." Well here I am exactly 6 months and 3.5 days away from being and 30, and yes that still sounds old! Not in a bad way, just I never thought it would be me turning the big 3-0. Of course I am six months older than my husband so I get teased plenty. Many say that it isn't thirty, its thirty-one. Well, I will let you know.
I feel as though I am pretty well on track as to what I wanted to do with my life up until this point. I had a great time in my twenties-- did college, found my love for concerts, my love for water, became a wife and mommy. I have two great girls, married and have a great career. We fell in love with a great dog, have a fish and in a few days will have the sole custody of a great guinea pig. So as regrets go, nah. I just feel that at this point I might have to grow up. Maybe not "have to" but I just automatically will. My interests will suddenly become hour long dramas instead of america's funniest home videos???
Anyway, I am writing today to let you know that this may be an ongoing kinda blog. There is still things I want to accomplish before I turn 30.  I am not freaking out, just things I want to do before the big day. This decade was so much shorter than the previous two. I feel that this is going to be a constant. Days go by faster and come a lot quicker.
If you have any ideas I am listening. Kind of a miniature bucket list of things. Skydiving may or may not be an option, but I really do want to fly a plane!!! I would like to go backpacking somewhere really unique. I wanted so bad to run a marathon before 30, but that one may have to wait, you know, something to look forward to!
So listen up 30--I am not scared, I would just like it if you slowed your roll a bit--can I still say that when I am thirty?
