It’s my 52nd birthday on Wednesday, and this year I decided to do something a little different to celebrate! Actually, the celebration is going to last for the next 52 weeks!!
It’s not going to be a constant, non-stop party, if that’s what you think. I’m way too old to try something crazy like that! Here’s what the plan is instead.
So, every week until my 53rd birthday, I’ll be doing an activity that I’ve never ever tried.
Before you start thinking of a bunch of crazy things for me to do, here’s one ground rule.
NO HEIGHTS! I’m deathly afraid of them, so that rules out…
- bungee jumping
- sky diving
- mountain climbing
- Basically anything that taking place where I could fall to my death!!
Here’s a few of the things that I will be doing over the next 52 weeks…
|Skating on the Rideau Canal|
|Taking a carriage ride and, or driving a carriage/wagon|
|Going through the Rideau Canal locks in a canoe|
Riding along in a snow plow, police car, ambulance, fire truck and, or self-driving car
