Holding pattern

I will be working at Lucas Oil Stadium tomorrow for the playoff game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Kansas City Chiefs. That will fulfill my commitment to Circle City Sound for this season of Colts football. I am in a holding pattern until the mini-van is repaired and ready to roll. Two questions that I have been asking myself over the past few months as I have contemplated traveling this year, “Are you willing to leave the comfort of your condo? Why are you so willing to step outside of your comfort zone?”
So far my best answer is that I am expecting an adventure.
Adventure is on hold until all the details are worked out.

I can’t get out of here soon enough!

My instincts were telling me that I should leave Indiana the day after Christmas. Do I follow my instincts? Obviously not as often as I should. I woke up at 6:30 this morning and headed over to my brother David’s building to help clear the sidewalks. We got about 4 inches of snow over night. When my work there was completed I was driving home across 465. Traffic was very slow and the snow was making things hazardous. I was driving about 35 miles an hour in the left Lane. Suddenly a lady ahead of me in the right Lane lost control of her vehicle and she spun around heading straight at me. I tried to avoid her but we both turned in the same direction. She managed to get her car headed back in the right direction but ended up right beside me. She pushed me off the road and into a ditch. I was working hard trying to keep my van under control but it was no use. I was off the side of the road and stuck as she drove up the exit and out of sight. I didn’t get her plate number. I walked up the ramp and located a Bob Evans where I called a towing service. The driver picked me up and we soon had the van loaded onto his tow truck. The van had been damaged on the front driver’s side quarter panel. The door opens and closes but it will need to be repaired. $500.00 deductible will make this an expensive event not to mention the $75.00 tow.  Now I am certain that I should have listened to my instincts! I realize that bad things happen but frankly after the events of the last four years of my life I’m feeling “enough is enough already”.  I can’t get out of here soon enough!
