Spontaneous is not a word your could use to describe me. While I am not an organized person, I like to have a pretty good idea of where I’m going and what I’m doing. I get nervous when I’m put into unfamiliar situations.
It’s one of the things I don’t like about myself and I’m actively working to remedy it by purposely putting myself into those kinds of situations and working my way through them.
Today was one of those activities. Tim and I got in the car and we just started driving. He had a general idea of where we were going, but I was just along for the ride. We drove for a few hours and came up a town neither of us had been to before.
While we had never been to that town, I knew there was a large book sale nearby so we dropped in there and bought the kids some books. Other than that we just drove around, taking roads that piqued our interest, and pretty much rambling through the countryside until we decided to head home. It turned out to be a lovely adventure!
