First and foremost, the number one thing I cannot do is 'Think of things I CAN do'.
I realized this when working on my previous post. It should not be that hard to think of things I can do. I mean, things that are actually worthy of being on the list. Sure, I can tie my shoes, count to 10, eat with a fork, breathe, things like that. But actual talents, that's a stumper. I have many things that most people can do that I can't, like blow bubblegum bubbles, dive, whistle, french braid hair. These are things that I just never learned how to do as a kid and I've missed my learning window and I think it's too late. I sure would like to acquire more skills, but the question is when and how do I go about doing this? I'm lucky if I have time to change my underwear, let along learn how to knit. Do I have to wait until my kids are grown to learn these things? I'll be 52 by the time John M. is 18. Hey, that's when I can retire! Maybe this is all coming together. Maybe my grandchildren can teach me to blow bubbles and whistle. They can laugh about how Maw-Maw Daig is ancient and can't perform these simple tasks. That will have to be the plan. I'll have to post about my learning experiences then. Check back in 17 years and I'll update my list.
