Something that I Love

I can't believe I'm on day 5 and am still keeping this craziness up. I guess I just needed a list to complete. That's me- the adult, non-Muppet version of detail-oriented Prairie Dawn (who also likes pet snakes).
Today's picture is of something I love. I mentioned my addiction to roller coasters in a previous post. This picture was taken at Kings Dominion which has several amazing thrill rides. My sister took this picture and sent it to me during one of the summers when I was pregnant and separated from my beloved roller coasters. I have loved riding thrill rides since I was 7 or 8, pushing myself on my toes to make myself as tall as possible in order to reach the coveted "Tall enough to ride" marker at the entrance ramps. Thinking about why I love roller coasters (I know I'm not your typical adrenaline junkie), but I believe the reason is that my mind is always in motion- worrying about tomorrow, nostalgic for yesterday, fretting over the perfection of completing a huge number of daily tasks. The only time I am ever living completely in the moment, worry-free and happy, is on a roller coaster.

I must admit that I'm shocked this isn't another picture of Human Target. Or Firefly.

Or most of all, ME--you're most favorite baby-wrangler! :-P

Firefly or another picture of Guerrero was a close second... ;-)
