Wow, we are halfway through August and 30 Days About Me! Time is flying much too fast.
If you haven’t been following along, I’ve been participating in 30 Days about Me, hosted by Toni.
Day 16- Who Do You Do the Most Crazy Things With OR What is the Most Crazy Thing You’ve Done?
I don’t really think of myself as the “wild and crazy” kind of girl. I mean when I was younger, I had my moments, but of late, not so much.
I think becoming a mom, a single mom at that has made me a more cautious person. I’ve never really been much of a daredevil either, so no bungee jumping, sky diving or wrestling alligators for me!
Some might say packing up and moving to Orlando 10 weeks after my first visit there was crazy. I did that in 2003. Tara and I moved 1000 miles from all our friends and family just because, we could. We had a great six year adventure living near the “House of the Mouse”. We moved back home to PA six years and 4 days later to be back closer to family. (Some family events over the past three weeks make me question that decision at times!)
We’ve had some “memorable” adventures. Those that people would say, I would never have thought to do that.
The two that come to my mind involve Tropical Storms, coincidentally, both beginning with the letter “E”. Ernesto and Earl!
We went to Magic Kingdom during Tropical Storm Ernesto (8/30/2006). We lived less than an hour from the parks, Tara’s school was closed, and I worked at home. The rains weren’t too bad, so we decided to head over and have dinner and see what else we could do. We had the park almost to ourselves and had a good four hours before the storm started to get bad.
Last year, we headed to Ocean City, NJ during Tropical Storm Earl. We wanted to be close to the ocean, to see the waves. We had a great day! (9/3/2010)
So, are you wild and crazy? What was the craziest thing you have done?
