Things I learned in Alaska
1. I am afraid of heights. Scale a 75 foot cliff with a 99 pound girl your only safety net and see if you're not afraid of heights too. That is me in the photo but darling son zoomed in so you can't see just how impressive that climb was. He said, "Look down, Mom!" I said, "Don't think so."
2. It's okay to say no. After massive shakes from fear of height, They (read: evil rock climbing guides) took us to the top of the cliff to teach us to rappel. "Stand on the edge of the cliff and sit back." Uh, no thanks. However, watching my two teenage sons do it was worse than doing it myself.
3. Kindles break when dropped on a hard surface. Yes, I did it and the screen is now permanently black. WAHHHH!! Should've gotten the Klutz Warranty.
4. Denise + Day at Sea - Kindle = Boredom
5. You can go two full weeks without feeling hungry.
6. There's no place like home. My bed, my routines, everything in it's place--well, mostly. Ahhhh . . . .
