Lost and Found
Have you ever just driven down a road just to see where it will go? I have and I love it.
I normally feel very comforatable doing this because I have navigation on my cell phone. If I get worried or can't figure out how to get home I just grab my phone. Plug in my home address and sit back and follow the directions.

If there is ever an accident on the main road I drive on I now know a new way to get home. It took about 15 minutes longer but there was no traffic which is a luxcurie in the Fort Worth area.
There have been times where I have found a new faster way home. But many times its just tends to be way out of the way.

Here is hoping you find an unexpected adventure this week that turns out as nice as mine did.
I have to admit something that is kind of embarrassing. I admitted it in a comment on Big Mama's blog now it's time to come c...
