    Adventure #3 

    As one of my adventures, I decided to give blood. I wanted to help out in a worthy way. I have not given blood since I was 20 years old. The last time I gave blood, I hallucinated because I did not eat or drink properly before giving blood. So, I was nervous going to the Big Red Bus at my school. After getting on the bus and filling out the necessary paperwork, the nurse called me back to ask me some health related questions. I was approved to give blood. I am so happy I gave blood. I am looking forward to next weeks adventure of walking/running a 5K.

    Adventure 2 – Making a Cake from Scratch 

    This was a very adventurous week. My second adventure was supposed to be to attend a professional basketball game. I bought tickets for my family to attend a professional basketball game. The professional basketball game was the Orlando Magics vs. Charlotte Bobcats. I live about 25 miles from Orlando. On Wednesday, my son, Jacob, asked me if the game was on Friday. I replied, “No, Jake. It is on Saturday.” About 15 minutes later, he said, “Mom, I think you bough

    t the tickets for the game in Charlotte.” I said, “I don’t think so.”, as I am walking to get the tickets. I get the tickets and look at the location of the sporting event and sure enough the tickets were for the game in Charlotte, NC. Then, I started laughing and saying “What am I going to do with these tickets?” I called my sister, who lives near Charlotte, if she w

    ould like to attend the Charlotte Bobcats vs. Orlando Magic on Saturday night. She said, “Yes.” I then had to get the tickets to the post office and mail them to her overnight. On Thursday, I went to the post office and mailed the tickets to her. She got the tickets on Friday. She attended the ballgame on Saturday night. Needless to say, the Magic won in overtime. Go Magic!!! It was an adventure within itself to get rid of the tickets.

    I just started the 52 Adventures. My first adventure was to go with my nephew to Fernbank Museum in Georgia. Fernback Museum is a dinosaur museum. I enjoyed spending time with my nephew at this museum. He was very informative about dinosaurs. He was my tour guide.

      Aw, he’s precious! And dinosaur museums are the best kind of museums, as far as I’m concerned.
