Comfort Zone – prompt by the Daily Post

Comfort Zone

What are you more comfortable with — routine and planning, or laissez-faire spontaneity? 


I am not a spontaneous person. I have to prepare and plan right down to the very last thing. I made lists of things we needed to camp and take with us. Every trip was well planned out except for the things that happened I had no control over. Like traveling to Florida in our mobile trailer. In Virginia we had to find a hospital and all nigh pharmacy because our 2 year old son was sick with a huge lump on his neck. Turned out he had strep throat. We decided to continue to Florida since we had the refrigerator in the trailer to cool the medicine. Then we get to Florida and the truck is throwing oil all over. We had to find a repairman, someone to take us to the repairman, someone to take us to rent a car. We saw Shamu for a few hours. Picked up truck, dropped off rental car and the truck stopped dead at the rental place. WE got another car. Took the truck back and he needed it for a few days. Sucky vacation and all the planning in the world didn’t change that.
