Last night I was talking with my friend, he said he did some silly go down a hill over a pond/lake thing at Boyne and won...
I said "I would never do that"
He said that's why some people have exciting lives and some people don't.
And so that's what I thought of before I went to bed and what I thought of when I woke up and on my way in.
My "boring" life. And let me say that my friend in no way insinuated that I had a boring life, that's all me.
I haven't traveled all over the world or even traveled that much in the US, though I would seriously love to visit every zoo in the United States). Though I have been on some really great trips. I was able to take Phyllis to Disney when she was 8 (6 days after 9-11 which was a SWEET time to go because no one was there!), we've gone on a Possum Trip (you travel at night and wake up at a new destination - so fun), Texas and a few other really great places... AND we're about to go to Austria... woo hoo!!!
I don't even do that many things that are that exciting. I'm busy enough, but one thing I'll tell you, boring life or not, I don't think I would trade it in for anything!! I love find joy in simple things, I love serving in Soup Kitchens, and loving teenagers, I love being excited for their accomplishments, no matter how big or how small. I love that even though I'm not the "fun" leader that they know, that I'm there (just don't be ridiculous).
I'm a mom... and to me that's the best, most exciting thing... ever!
