I'm just gonna keep going!

Maybe I have ADHD.

Maybe I am indecisive.

All I know is that I just have to keep trying and doing new things and seeing if I want to keep them around.

For instance, I've told you about my excitement about being in plays.

I thought maybe I did that once I would have it out of my system, but now I'm addicted.

I auditioned for "James and The Giant Peach" a while back and didn't make it in. Then just this past Wednesday night I auditioned for "It's a Wonderful Life." I at least got into callbacks for that one, but I'll give you details on that later.

What I want to tell you about is my new interest and passion.

It's something I have always wanted to do and even did a little bit of it just after Marc and I were married. The desire took a backseat because of many reasons and recently I have had the opportunity to get into it again.

I wanted to start at the beginning so that I could really feel confident in my ability.

So a few Saturdays ago I attended my first class to start me on my journey to becoming a rock climber, repeller, canyoneer, and ice climber.

Watch out world! Here comes a 38 year old mother of 3 special needs children who is ready to take on the ropes!

I just had to take a picture of me working on tying knots before we actually headed up Rock Canyon to repel.

This is our good friend Dan who is also my adventure guide teaching me the ropes of mountain fun. I am really excited to tell you about our joint collaborations to benefit his company, my life and my children.

After getting our helmets, harnesses and gloves on...
Then we scrambled/climbed up this.

Here are a few of my fellow classmates and I waiting our turn to repel.

Here I go!

I have a new love in my life!

I am so excited to continue this journey in becoming a better mountain adventurer.

I just wanna prove that you're only as old as you let yourself feel... or at least inspire other moms in my situation to find things that keep them going.

That is so cool! I am so happy for you! I am trying to find me a new hobby of some kind to adventure on but I am not sure yet what that should be.

Vickit43, don't think about it too hard. Follow your heart and jump and see how it goes. You can always change your mind...
