Sometimes I feel like an old fuddy-duddy! I mean, I've always been a fuddy-duddy. The party pooper. I'm not very adventurous. I'm kind of set in my ways. I like things easy-going and slow paced. For the most part, I'm okay with this. But there are some things that I am not okay with as I get older.
A bunch of friends are on their way to Six Flags today. I want to be with them so badly. I LOVE roller coasters. But as I get older, roller coasters do not like me. :( After just a few I get really motion sick. And the last time I went to a park, taking pills for motion sickness did not help. Part of the problem is that I don't know I've ridden too many roller coasters until I've ridden too many. And then it's too late. And then I feel yucky the rest of the day. And in Illinois, the closest Six Flags is about 2 1/2 hours away and then I'm carsick all the way home. Like I said, getting old is no fun at all!
And then we have a singles' retreat coming up in October. I want to go. But the idea of getting no sleep all weekend stresses me out...even though it is still a month away. Even if I could get to bed a decent hour, I don't sleep well in my own bed, let alone in a cabin with a bunch of girls coming in and out. I will probably still go, but I hate that I am hesitant to go based on sleep. It makes me feel like a wimp. And whiny. And a party pooper fuddy-duddy!
And there are other things about getting old that I won't go in to. I'm sure you're bored enough. I don't want to bore you any longer! I promise, sometimes I can be spontaneous!
