My first bus ride since the attack. I'm on a roll!!

Wandering around lower Queen Anne on my way to a girls only kayak trip

Hunting for harbor seals

Just after a paddle whack to Julia's face. It was an accident, I swear!

J & J conquer Lake Union

I'm so glad I'm stubborn! I just have to get my frustration level high enough to get moving. Yesterday, I hopped on a bus, meandered down through lower Queen Anne, and met my buddy Jules down at Lake Union for some kayaking. I have become sick of living in fear of seizures or panic attacks. Now that I've gotten myself running again, and can easily hit the grocery store by myself, I have become much more confident and I'm pushing boundaries that I haven't pushed in months. I've decided to get out and have as much fun as I can before the brain surgery. Jules and I even made a mental summer bucket list of fun activities to do. I'm so happy to be out doing things, conquering my fears, and laughing, enjoying the world around me. Life just keeps getting better and better!! :)

To Do (in no particular order):
Hike Mount Si
Rent bikes and explore the Burke Gilman Trail
Stand up paddle board around Lake Union
Rent one of the electric boats on Lake Union with a group of friends to watch the sunset

We'd better get to work! :)

    WOW- look at you go!!! You are back on track for sure! Just loved the pictures! The scenery is just beautiful there! Have a safe and productive trip to New York and keep us posted!

  2. Yes. We must get started right away! Next stop Mt. Si! Up UP and awaaaaaaaaaay!

  3. I'm a bike-riding fool lately, usually on the Burke Gilman, so I'm always down for a ride!

  4. Little Si is a much more picturesque hike. If you're looking to say, "I did this!" then Mt. Si is the place to be. If you want more nature and beauty, and aren't looking to conquer anything, then Little Si is worth your time.

    Looks like a great bucket list! Have fun!
