I don't get out and drive much by myself. Scaredy Cat... I guess. I can find a kazillion excuses to stay home. I might have a flat, ( I have road assistance) - I might get lost (I have a GPS) - heavy traffic makes me nervous (that is true but I could find some place to go with less traffic) etc, etc, etc.
It's not as if I haven't tried some interesting and fun NEW things to do in my lifetime. I think I will share a few of those with you.
I've never been a 'sports person'. As a child I sat and colored in my coloring books or played with paper dolls. In junior high school while the class was busy playing volley ball, a friend and I sat under a tree and made necklaces out of clover blossoms. (My first 'crafty' thing to do). My high school activity was marching in the school band for football games (not too streneous although blowing that trombone took at lot of air). At 18 I started having babies and chasing kids... does that qualify as a 'sport'??
I did go to Gold's Gym after our children were grown but hurt my back and quit.
Oh, I tried my hand at some of those 'get up and move' things but my interest never lasted long.
I did try tennis in high school.... sort of.... and then years later was introduced to it again when the grandchildren played. DD Shirley caught me mid-air with one shot...
We didn't have horses when I was a teen but I did ride one once... A guy, who had his eye on me, rode his horse over to our house to 'hang out' and he persuaded me to climb into the saddle. No instructions. As I went lumbering off down the road astride that horse's back my Mom said the guy commented 'watch her bounce'. That was the end of my horseback riding. He didn't come around anymore. Guess he figured that if I couldn't ride a horse I wasn't of much use.
I did ride a little after we got our DD Susan a horse. Wonder if I ever quit 'bouncing!!'
I tried my hand at bowling... once. Look at that form!!!
Does this paint a picture? I try something and don't stick with it, if it includes work. he he.
to be continued.
