Paratrooper Man Takes Me Skydiving

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:26pm

I'm participating in Wordless Wednesdays at 5 Minutes for Mom.

I know that the idea is to be wordless, but a few words of introduction...

Day to day, I lead a fairly normal & a fairly boring life. However, every now & then, I get a bee in my bonnet. And it is usually a fairly large-sized bee. This bee causes me to do strange, impulsive & fun things. I just need some excitement. I'm not really an adrenaline junkie (I'm not. I'm not! I'm not!! ) because I only need this adrenaline fix a few times a year. Then, I've gotten my fix and I can go on back to my ordinary life... that is, until the bee strikes again!

Sometimes when I feel the bee start to buzz around again, I can settle it down by reminiscing about previous fun adventures & be content with that. The pesky bee has been buzzing lately, so let me see if I can get it to settle down!

Two years ago, I got a pretty big bee in my bonnet when I turned 35 years old. I was feeling old, bored & restless. A mid-life crisis of sorts.

My husband, Paratrooper Man, and our son, Young Sarge are paratroopers in the Army. I had enviously watched Paratrooper Man make military parachute jumps for years. Then, Young Sarge became a paratrooper too. And that... that was just too much for me. I was going to have to try this skydiving thing for myself. With the help of an expert tandem skydiver, of course.

OK, I'm ready to be wordless now...








Thanks to Sky's The Limit in Bee ville, Texas for helping me get that bee outta my bonnet!

And I can't forget the apron of the day... Her name is Honey Bee and she is for sale at Rick Rack Attack.

Don't forget... Mother's Day is Sunday, May 11th!
