This particular evening had a spectacular early sunset show (*see blog insertion called "The opening act!")....so I had a gut feeling that the last few minutes of the sun going down was going to be a beauty. I told my sister... "let's go catch the sun setting!" Shoot me for wanting some cheap entertainment. She kind of looked at me like I was nuts. I said "let's go in the car and pull over on the side of the road to get a good view of it." My guess is that she was thinking... how does she know there is going to be a sunset worth the energy to go and view? It's been years since I used this phrase, and especially not on my sister....but basically I said "let's go parking!" She again gave me a look of concern or perhaps an "uninterested" look. I threw in the bait...."I'll even turn on the heated seats for you!" I know she likes the heated seats in the car and says they are therapeutic for her ....so, I knew I had her undivided attention! With the mention of the heated seats, her eyes got bigger and she finally gave into my bartering as she could see me squirming to hit the road. She replied with a sounding "okay, let's go!" *Sigh* It takes bribes to console a CSD individual.
We told the kids, we will be back in 20 minutes or less. So we rushed out the door to capture every minute of our 20 minute escape.....and I was right, the sunset was over the top beautiful! We drove about a mile down the road and found a perfect spot in a quiet little subdivision. To think we would of miss this had we just sat in front of the television! That would of been a crying shame....
The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this…"decide what you want".
