Another To-Do List

As I was driving through the grocery store parking lot (the bane of my existence) today, I passed my favorite Chinese restaraunt and started thinking about how I would really, really like some Honey Garlic Chicken.

That got me thinking that Honey Garlic Chicken probably won't be readily available in Doha. Not that they don't have Chinese restaraunts, just that they probably don't serve the Americanized Chinese food we get here. It's probably, you know, authentic Chinese.

So then I started thinking about things I want to do before leaving Miami. Here's my list so far.
  1. Yeah. Honey Garlic Chicken.
  2. Lay out in the backyard and take a nap. Our house in Doha will have pavers throughout the yard - not grass. Not so comfy for nap-taking.
  3. Watch a sunrise on the beach. I could probably do this in Doha, but here I know where to go.
  4. Go to the movies. In the Middle East, many theaters sell assigned seats and people talk throughout. Not my idea of ideal movie-watching conditions.
  5. Go hang out in a bookstore and just browse. There are bookstores there, but I don't know how conducive to "hanging out" they are.
  6. Drive down to the Keys with the kids and wade out hundreds of feet into the water and still be only knee deep.

That's what I've got so far. Just small experiences that I might miss in our new life.

This is a great list! Not only more fun than previous to-do lists, but probably a lot more meaningful, too! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone!!

This is a TERRIFIC list. Do these things. I can happily say that we just tried a terrific Thai restaurant that we really liked. I know it's not "Americanized Chinese," but it's close.

Also, do you know, there's a Macaroni Grill here, and a Krispy Kreme just opened? More tastes of home!

But, seriously, do these things. I can't believe you'll be here soon... just as I'm leaving!
