I saw someone use the phrase “deployment bucket list” a few months ago on Semper Fi Momma and thought: “GENIUS!” I had already been making a list of things I’d like to do/accomplish/experience while my honey is downrange, but had never heard that term. It’s perfectly fitting, though.
With deployment “D-day” quickly coming upon us, I’ve been spending some more time thinking about the things I’d like to do. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
- run a half-marathon (in September)
- take a cooking class (or four)
- go Paleo/Primal for at least a month
- take a photography class
- hot yoga at least twice a month
- attend the Healthy Living Summit in Boston (in August)
- be a tourist in my own city (check out museums, parks & restaurants)
What’s amazing is how the Universe is practically giving me these opportunities! The other day I found a deal on photography classes ($35 for a 2-hour class). Then the dates and location for HLS were announced and plane tickets are less than $200. (Plus, I have a few friends who are planning to go as well.)
And if that wasn’t enough … one of my very best friends, Laura, is planning to come do the half-marathon with me! I think that’s only fitting because she ran my first race with me and has run with me every time I’ve added a new distance.
What are some fun things you’ve done while your honey was deployed?
