On the spur of the moment

We took our car in for maintenance today, then I dropped my election ballot off at the fire department, it was pretty ordinary... getting things done...

Then we decided to walk on the ferry and go to Seattle today! It was so refreshing to just GO. We had nothing else to do, so we just decided to go! We drove to the Bainbridge Island Ferry, parked the car, walked on the ferry, had lunch at the Crab House on the waterfront in Seattle, then came home.

I know it doesn't sound very exciting to the average person, but it was fantastic for us. We don't have a lot of money, we are on SSI... so it isn't very often that we just go out to eat or do something that costs money like taking the ferry, we are so careful with our budget... we don't have a lot of wiggle room. But today we decided to just go... we needed it so badly. When you live a life that is the same day in and day out, a wild and crazy spur of the moment adventure is required to keep one's sanity intact.

I just felt the need to share and to write about our adventure today.
