You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

For those of you who know me, know that I am not a very adventurous person. I like to stick to things I am familiar with and know I can do well. Heaven forbid I were to leave my comfort zone. However, with my kids new found joy in riding my father in-law's 4 wheeler, I decided I should learn how to drive (or rather my hubby pressured me into it). So, as I stand there looking at this beast, my husband says "See it's easy, you press this button here, kick out the stand here, push your foot down 3 times on this lever here, and press the gas! Oh and don't burn your leg here." Sure, sounds easy, now can you go over that 5 more times, but more slowly? Needless to say, I did it!! I was quite proud of myself. I was a little jerky, and am sure that I had it in the wrong gear for most of the time, but I did it! So, with my new found confidence maybe I should try the tractor next? Maybe tomorrow.

Wow - go you...not sure I would have been up for it. I bet you are glad you did though.
