Sure, don't we all? Here's mine:
1. I want to live in Northern Lower Michigan for at least a few years.
2. I am beginning to think in a more focused way about pursuing an advanced degree - discerning this now and would cherish your prayers.
3. I want to go back to Japan once more - was there for a year as an exchange student, and will not feel as though that chapter has ended without another visit there.
4. I want the Captain and I to live aboard our beloved "Retreat" and cruise at least part of the ICW (intercoastal waterway).
5. And before I hit the big "5-0" next Spring, I want to be a Parrot-head at a live Jimmy Buffet concert! I think the Captain is clear on this - I hope he is working on it!
