many things I need to work on. This goal will be instrumental in getting me to finally start living my life instead of waiting for things to happen.

but I learned a painful fact about myself. I have discovered that I am always waiting for something to happen. I am waiting for action and waiting for adventure. I read through so many posts from the other August Bootcampers and am disappointed by my own efforts. I definately need to make some changes in my life. Since joining 43 Things, I have discovered many things about myself that I am not happy with and nor proud of at this point in my life. However the hardest part of a journey is the first step. I believe I am ready to take that step and move ahead in my life instead of going backwards.
Rear Brakes are fixed
Going to dealership to have Tire Pressure Sensor replaced. I think it was broke while it was at the dealership the other day. We will see what they are going to do about it.
I want to have a spot of fun today with my Granddaughter. She starts back to school tomorrow. I think we will stop at the new park on the way to my Mom and Dad’s.
Action and adventure
Walked to church, the Auto Parts Store, and McDonalds in the rain on Sunday. Needed a special tool to continue working on the brakes. We stopped at a park by the river on the way back. We also stopped for a short time at a baseball game right near our home. Visited with a mother from granddaughters school and then continued home.
Started back on the brakes and then it started pouring. I will get these done.
Throwing out small piles
Finding places for things we want to keep
Teaching granddaughter to set her own alarm for upcoming school year
Working on a budget that will allow us to pay our bills and still eat
Taking the mini-van in for brakes.
Riding my motorcycle. I forget how good it feels to be on my motorcycle. I can get away from my worries and thinking about lifes little problems when I am on my motorcycle. It takes concentration and clear headedness to ride a motorcycle safely. I seem to be able to turn everything else off in my head and focus on riding. I need to do this more often. Plus the great gas mileage makes it very inexpensive to have small adventures on my motorcycle.
My granddaughter and I emptied the refrigerator and completely washed it and the freezer compartment out. I cannot believe how hard my granddaughter worked on getting the interior all scrubbed out. I was so proud of her.
My granddaughter and I went to the nearby park and the icecream store there and bought and icecream cone and played for 1 hour as a reward for the clean refrigerator.
emailed a request to Park District for a complete list of the 150+ parks in our District.

Wow, I am not very adventuresome. I am working on this as I want to encourage my granddaughter to be more daring and confident.
