Looking for adventure

Over the weekend, I realized that I am in need of adventure.  I’m not a bold person.  I’m not a daredevil.  I don’t need some grand journey, but I think I need something out-of-the-ordinary.  I need something outside of my comfort zone.  I need something outside of my house!

I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and looking for adventure.

I was bemoaning this to my husband as we perused Best Buy while our daughter was spending time with her grandparents last Saturday.  Being the good man that he is, he understood.  He encouraged me to be brave and not always quick to say no to spontaneity or new things.  He knows that I like to plan things, and I don’t like change.   Admittedly, I was a bit irked that he’d give me such casual advice, but he was right.

While I’m not setting off to climb Mt. Everest (heck, I’m not even setting out to conquer piles of laundry), I am opening myself up to new things a bit at a time.  This week’s new adventure will be a trip to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum to meet with a mom friend I’ve only talked to digitally.  I’ve been thinking about how I’ll handle driving downtown, parking, changing Lexiana’s diapers, feeding Lexiana and everything in between.  And while my excuse is that I’m still operating with a bit of a bum shoulder, I’d be thinking about these things anyway.  This kind of trip is outside of my comfort zone.  And while that’s scary, it’s also exciting.

Lexiana may have a meltdown at some point because it’s a different kind of day for her.  Or she may do incredibly well.  (In fact, I’d guess it to be the latter.)  Either way, we will both survive.  We will have an adventure together.  We’ve only been that far out of town just the two of us twice before.  Both times we survived and had a great time.  This time will be the same.  We’ll make new friends and have new experiences.  It will be an adventure.

And once we rest up, I’ll figure out what my next adventure can be.  What do you suggest?
