Skinny Dip101 Things to Do in 1001 Days


I have decided, and am in training, to tackle one of these items this Friday.  I am scared to death.
Hint...I will be at the mall with Emily.  I'll tell you ALL about it and may even have a picture.

To Peanut.

  1. What a list and you are making headway. I think I may have witnessed a couple of these checks...was going commando 1 of them?
    We definitely need some photographic evidence with Emily at the Mall.

  2. Em refuses to do with me but she'll probably snap a picture just to prove I did it. I am still tickled to spend many hours with you in your stomping ground. We must surprise Bebe one day in Boston.

  4. I love your list! How fantastic. And great photo too.

  5. Here's to Peanut.

    How about a Tarot card reading instead of a palm?

    1. I'll look into the Tarot card reading. Maybe easier and gentler...no touching.

  6. how did i miss this one?

    you sure have a lot of checks there - palm reading is just wierd bc half of them touch your hands and really stretch and try to get a bettter view of a line and stuff.

    are you going to milan? maybe you could watch a ballet at la scala?

    i want to go to la scala and watch the opera in the outdoor area in verona

    i should do a list too. Hope you are better and sending love to you and Peanut.

    1. We are headed to Venice and Florence. I think the opera would be wonderful, the ballet not so sure. Hunter is not eager to do either. It's on the list and damn it, it will be done.

  7. You've knocked quite a lot off that list already-you should be very proud.
    My guess is that you are getting a massage at the mall. Just don't make any erotic sounding noises-it can really echo
    If you come up here, we can take care of the rest of that list in one wknd (except Napa). We can do a couple of them at the same time

    1. I am tempted to make "noises" just to embarrass my daughter. I actually need a massage just hoping they do not cripple me. Hunter says Boston's doable...we need to pick a date.

  8. I'm so sorry about your pooch, you must be heartbroken, Ive been so out the loop without a computer for a month.
    I love your list, if I did the same I think I'd have about two things on it, I've always been a goal less type of person.

    1. I have always set goals. A bit more vague than these, but I do like to organize, plan, nitpick, etc.

  9. Cute photo of you. I regularly stay in bed until noon (and past!) on the weekend. Now kids are older I follow up a good old read with teen movies, my guilty pleasure.

  10. And sorry about pooch, I would be devastated if anything happened to Teddy, who is the most important person in our house, as Cy always quite rightly says.
