Okay, I'll just have a little fun with this.

- Go to Vegas and do something that needs to stay there
- Learn to play bagpipes at 2am...outside
- Adopt a feral cat and give it a bath

Hey.. I'm going to Vegas next month! Hmmmm....

I think the bagpipes thing I'll reserve until I'm ready to move. Does blowing my conch shell (it sounds like a big horn) count?:lol:

hi Mike-
go kayaking on the Colorado River when you are in Vegas! You can google it- there are a few outfitters- you put in just past the Hoover Dam. They pick you up at your hotel and it is great! You need to make a reservation as there are a limited number of spots open each day- but it was lots of fun-

bumping the thread.. I haven't done anything NEW lately.. GOSH!

Well, baked sugar cookies for the first time.

Well, I also now occasionally pay for the person behind me in the drive through and ask the employee to just ask the person to "pay it forward".

Interesting history too.. I posted back in 2005 about this NEW thing called Google Earth.

I try to do things "just because". I got my motorcycle license last year, just because. Mainly? My husband and I try to say "yes" to every opportunity. No matter how weird it may seem at the time. Life can take you on interesting adventures when you least expect it.

Hi everyone.. bumping this thread.. the following is from my original post...


Quote:
I'm kinda in a funk/rut, call it what you will.. not every day.. and it's not TOO bad, but for a very "half full" person like me.. it's time to make some changes.

I'm trying to shake things up a little, so I'm thinking part of my challenge will be to do something I haven't done before either weekly or bi-weekly. Doesn't have to have anything to do with food or exercise.. could be a play, hot air balloon ride, ANYTHING.. so I'm looking for ideas. It could also have to do with food or exercise.. dance class, learning a receipe (currently I'm good at breakfast and suck for everything else).


This was back in 05.. here are some of the things I've done since then:

Learned to dance ... 5 time amateur World Champion in Country dancing (it includes waltz, swing, cha cha, polka, two step and a couple of others)

Hot air balloon ride (this is AWESOME and I'd recommend it to anyone!)

Got a divorce.. didn't really plan or ever imagine I'd do this one.. but I wanted more than a roomate, so I left.

Fired my phone company and cable company.

Travelled to Italy, visited castles, stayed in a medieval village, and learned how to make Pasta from scratch.

Still occasionally paying for the person behind me in the McDonalds drive through.

Upcoming:

Leaving my job of 24 years to start my own business as a franchise owner.

Going to go sailplaning..

___________

Small or large.. what are you doing to shake up your life a little and step out of your comfort zone?

what a great post! My big thing was go back to school, I'm a senior at UNH civil engineering (of all things :lol: ) wow just wow all the things I learned just open my mind :)

Chanteyl Thu, Feb-05-15 09:07

Late at night, I drive near a grade school and throw handfuls of quarters, for the kids that walk to school, to find.

I go to pet stores and play with puppies.

Make a house for the fairy's in your yard.

Get back to sculpting as I promised myself back in my 20s I'd do in my later years. It's the later years...lol.
