Adventures live on!


I haven’t written much about my daily adventures, so here’s one to quench that urge.

Seeing everyday as an adventure is much more satisfying than just counting the hours & minutes until the day is done.

Let me share with ya what I learned yesterday.  I obtained the vast knowledge I will share below and ended the day worn out, heart thumping loudly in my ears, with stomach cramps.

Lesson 1: Did you know humans can’t safely walk straight up a 12/12 pitch roof with nothing to hold on to? Even with shingle gripping, save your butt shoes, no one is spider man.
Solution: when such a need arises, very tall ladders are always better than dangling in mid air with only an air conditioner unit below to break ones fall.

Lesson 2: Money does not buy happiness. Some of the saddest & lonely people I’ve let lately have a secure financial outlook. Some of the happiest people I’ve met have an uncertain financial future and very little money in their bank accounts.
Solution: Realize that not only does money not grow on trees, but happiness isn’t wrapped in hundred dollar bills. Happiness is where your heart is! image

Lesson 3: The hardest person to tell you love them, is the person you love the most. This is the person staring at you from a 12/12 pitch roof!
Solution: If the person you love doesn’t stop talking long enough for you to speak, randomly interrupt conversations with “…hey!! I love you…okay, I’m done. Please, go on.”

Lesson 4: Standing on the bottom step of a ladder is helpful for the person on the top step.
Solution: I don’t think this lesson has a solution, but it’s cool! image

Lesson 5: Decorative bushes can be brutal.
Solution: Avoid them!

Lesson 6: A waterproof cast can make a 7yr old girl more happy than a permanent marker.
Solution: Pay the upgrade fee & buy the waterproof cast…then sign cast with the permanent marker. image

Lesson 7: Live without regrets.
Solution: Pee when needed, don’t hold it.

Lesson 8: Sharks don’t live in TN lakes.
Solution: Loss fear of lake water.

Lesson 9: Snakes like to sun bathe.
Solution: Don’t hike during summer months!!

I should probably elaborate on how these lessons we learned, but I’ll let you, inquisitive reader, decide for yourself 🙂
