This summer will definitely be different!  We are entering Phase 4 on Friday but I don’t think I am ready yet to venture out.  However, I am hoping to enjoy my Summer Break and check off a few things off my list.

California Coast 500.   I signed up with this virtual race with a few other BibRave Pros.  With this challenge I had the option of signing up to run 100, 250, 400 or 500 virtual miles this summer from LA’s Santa Monica Pier to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge along California’s idyllic Highway One.  This challenge runs from June 8-September 7.  I signed up to run 250 miles and as of this morning I’ve run 40.5 miles.  I still need 205. 5 miles to go.

→ Declutter.  I have accumulated many boxes to help with this project.  Right now they’re in the back porch.  I’ve cleaned out the pantry and part of the kitchen.  The place I was planning to take my donations only accepts them on Friday.  I need to call and double check so I can make a trip this Friday.  

→ Move.  I’ve been talking about this for how long?  I really want to move this summer or sometime this year.  I do like where I live but I need more space.  I want a house with a small apartment for my sister so she can have her own kitchen and space.   I know what I want but just haven’t found it.  I am going to wait till June 30th which is the end of teacher contract year before I make a decision.  <

→ Not get sick.  I am doing the best I can to avoid contracting Covid.  I go out to do a few errands but mostly have been staying home. 

→ Continue talking to friends and family via Zoom.  It isn’t really my favorite thing to do but I don’t have much of a choice.  Would I like to get together with them?  Of course.  I know it isn’t the same but I am still enjoying these conversations.  One of my friends lives in Texas and the rest of us are in Illinois so it is nice to see all of us together in one place.

Not a very exciting list.  🙂  It will be interesting when I go back to school in the Fall.  For now I am not going to worry about it.

16 Comments on Tuesday Topics: My summer bucket list

  1. De-clutter is something I forgot to add to my bucket list. I’m not sure if our Goodwill store has re-opened, but I’m still going to start cleaning things out and making piles for items to trash, donate or sell.

    • Now is the time to declutter but with the pandemic it does make it kind of difficult to know what to do with the stuff. I found out yesterday that the place I plan to take my stuff will be open on Wednesday at 10am. That is where I will be.

  2. Not getting sick is pretty much #1 on my list, not so much b/c I’m worried about being sick but I don’t want to get anyone else sick. And oof, decluttering needs to be on my list. We don’t have a lot of closet space and when I moved in I put a bunch of clothes in our office closet. I haven’t opened the door to that in 3 years, it’s probably a safe bet that I don’t need any of those clothes.

  3. Haha, Zenaida, I think your list is exciting AND very useful.
    Running 500 miles, decluttering and finding a house is definitely not boring!
    All the best with your summer plans. I’m looking forward to reading your updates!

  4. We’ve opened up again but I’ve still been so cautious. I hardly go to the store and have been sticking close to home and work. I keep saying I need to declutter and I guess now is a good a time as any to really buckle down and get it done!

Thank you for your comment!
