Damn that Morgan Freeman–the whole world is bucket list crazy.  Walking through any airport bookstore, I’m bombarded with thousands of things I should be doing, seeing, reading and eating before I die.

Too many things!  Can’t be done!  Time is precious, sure, but is turning life into an epic to-do list the way to enjoy it?  I’m officially over bucket lists.  If you ask me, bucket lists have jumped the shark.

Instead of pressuring myself to see the world, run a marathon or win a Grammy (as a mom to a toddler, I consider it a victory when I leave the house with clean hair), I thought I’d let myself off the hook on some of my least favorite activities.  So here they are…

10 things I’m simply not going to do anymore:

1. Go to Ibiza, or any other place where I’m supposed to take Ecstasy, wear a glow necklace and bounce frantically to seizure-inducing rave “music.”  If I wanted to relive an episode of my youth, it would involve a large pizza, a six-pack and my old metabolism.

2. Wait in line to return anything that costs less than $10.

3. Deep clean.  I’m cool with organizing and tidying, and I’ll do the bare minimum to keep stickiness at bay, but as long as I can pay someone else to scrub the toilet bowl, I will.  Life’s too short to do things I hate on a regular basis.

4. Watch movies or television shows about missing kids, kidnapped kids, sick kids, abused kids or pageant kids.  My heart can’t take it…
