Today is my birthday! Hubby had told me last night that I had to be up, dressed, and ready at 10 am, but he didn't/wouldn't tell me why. So, up at 9:30 am and ready to leave at 10. . . Before we walked out the door he threw me a bottle of Dramamine and said I might need it. For several seconds I had a blank look on my face trying to figure out why. . . Then he said we were going SkyDiving!!!!!!! I've always wanted to jump out of a plane but never figured I would. I immediately got a tummy ache and a bit nervous! Wow, SkyDiving, I've always talked about it but talk is talk! Talk is not doing. Talk is nothing. So, I smiled a fake smile and went along, scared spitless!
We drove over to the local airport and signed all the waivers and scary things saying we wouldn't sue if something bad happened and that we had no medical conditions and we had to weigh. We had to tell them our real weight, yikes, that's no fun telling someone your *real* weight! But I did it, I didn't want the parachute to be to small!!! Then they hooked me into a harness and gave me a brief 2 minute explanation on what we were going to do and we waited on the plane. . .
So, we tucked and free fell for what felt like forever, realistically it was probably less than 30-45 seconds. (I'll probably have to hang this pic on the wall somewhere)
So, so far that has been the adventure for our day! Later this evening we are going to Clicks for steak and to the Pawnee Bill Wild West Show. Should also be fun!
