I did a DIY project and didn’t swear (too much)
I saw Star Wars and Finding Dory with my kids.
I met some hockey players when I skated on the Dunkin Donuts Center Ice.
I mailed a personal letter to a Boston Bruins legend and got a response.

I got to see my favorite band play live a few times and tell them to their faces how much I adored them.
I get to hang out with some awesome friends when I see those shows.

I got to see backstage at the House of Blues in Boston.
I saw Pearl Jam at Fenway Park about 6 rows from the stage.
I took my parents out for breakfast.
I’ve bought some awesome music this year.

I actually read a few books.
I went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
I ran (well that is to be debated) not one but TWO 5Ks this year…and finished.
I donated to charity and recycled more
I went to an aquarium
I completed a fun money saving activity (more to come)

Chewbacca Mom still makes me laugh.
