Don't Wanna

Let's assume this is true: There are many bad reasons for doing things.

Then I posture (I think I'm using that word wrong) this: There are even more lousy reasons for not doing things.

There's the "I'm busy" and "I'm tired" excuses that fall so easily from my lips.  There's the "I wasn't planning on this" one that works in lots of situations.  There are good excuses, like "I've already promised to be somewhere else" that, if we didn't use them, we'd be terrible promise keepers.  But there's lots of not-so-good excuses that often prohibit us from doing otherwise awesome things.

Like 2 weeks ago, when Handsome had the day off, and out of the blue announced, "Let's go to a ball game."

I had other plans.  They mostly included the food I was planning on eating, the blogs I was planning on reading, and the shows I was planning on watching.  They were plans, but mostly it was that I just didn't wanna.  After my initial hesitation, I made myself say yes, trusting that I would later be glad of this impromtu change, and dove headlong into it.

Apparently, "Lawn" is code for "Bring your own seats"
We found that out a little too late.
We also found out that the WV Power is affiliated with our own dear Pittsburgh Pirates.
In true Pirate fashion, they didn't exactly win...
I called a friend, we met them there, and proceeded to have a perfectly American night.  Much food was consumed (better than I had planned to eat), peoples faces were "read" (better than the blogs I had planned on, no offense!), and the ball game was mostly watched (which definitely beat any show I was planning on).  Mostly, I made some awesome memories with my favorite people.

So go do something unexpected.  I promise you won't regret it.  If you let a "don't wanna" hold you back, you really just might regret that.

Off to the next adventure, 


  1. I agree with you. It's often so much better to just get out there and do something, even if it's not the evening home on the computer that you'd planned on.

    And besides, it usually makes for better blog entries. :D

    1. That is so true! Which, is usually just evidence of a life well-lived!

  2. You sure are a smart girl.

    1. It's cause I was homeschooled.

  3. I'm so jealous that you went to a Drive game! I have yet to go to one, since they started up after I left for college. My aunt actually sung the national anthem at the game on Wednesday! I totally understand the feeling you had.

    1. That's awesome about your aunt, and way too sad about missing the Gville Drive opportunity! I promise, you should come back and visit, it's everything a baseball experience should be! Thanks for dropping by!
