- After spending 27 years with my husband in charge of getting us to where we wanted to go, just driving places was an adventure. Thank goodness for the GPS! Waterparks were always a favorite destination, ice fishing contests, taking the train to the Twins game or the Holidazzle parade downtown Minneapolis, or zip lining in Northern Minnesota have been a blast and beyond my original comfort level. We even spent a week at a cabin. All these things have had my kids in tow as I don't have anyone to take them for a night, but everything we try has become a new family favorite.
- Next up will be trusting my children home alone while I travel to Chicago for work. Now that, will be way outside my comfort zone!
Going on 9 years ago I just left everything in Ohio that was my comfort zone to start my life in a different environment and create a new lifestyle. Even though my company relocated me to this area, there is no longer anyone here that I worked with when I was in Cincinnati. Joining Toastmasters is kind of an adventure since I'm mostly an introvert and never was too good of a speaker. Socializing with Baptists is also an adventure since they don't like Catholics so it's not usually comfortable to be around them.
I hope your house is still standing when you return. I left my 12 year old and 7 year old for 2 hours yesterday and felt pretty nervous about it. (My sister keeps pointing out that the 12 year old is old enough to get paid to babysit OTHER people's kids; he can watch his sister for a bit.)
