V is for Volunteer

From a young age my mom has volunteered me for tons of stuff.
I have helped out at a live theater ushering for shows, painting sets and mailings.

At local libraries I have helped out with checking books in, shelving, shelf reading, planning and implementing programs and purging sections.

As a teen and adult I have continued volunteering although not as frequently because of work and school.

I helped with several sinkhole cleanups, picking up trash or in some of the nastier sinks, digging up trash.

There are tons more examples I could give. I really think volunteering is fun because of the new things you can learn and completing projects that without willing hands may never be done.

Also, some of the great organizations I volunteered for offered yummy lunches to boot!

U is for Underground

This is part of the ABCs of Fun blog series.

I understand many people wouldn’t like being a cave because being underground gives them the willies. I couldn’t be happier.

Whether it is walking tours, crawling tours or going caving outside of work I have fun at it.

I first fell in love with caves in 2006 when I began working in the tourism business. While I was underground, I also fell in love with my husband.

Caves hold a special place in my heart. And they are great places to nap too!
