I survived my first Field Trip!2:20 PM
Don't laugh, but, this was my first field trip as a mom, yes, Jasmine went off this morning with her school and I sat at home worried and even found myself biting a nail......Pffftttt. I can NOT believe I was biting a nail....see what motherhood does to you?
I'm sure all the moms out there who have been through field trips are just shaking their heads or having a good ol' laugh at my expense LOL
But I survived it and I'm happy to have my little red head back home with me, she's so excited and hyper and going on about the trip and what they did, it's a BIG THING for them having seen and learnt about Fossils.
Now here's a funny thing, I bought her one of those disposable cameras to take with, so when she climbed into the car today the first thing she said was "mommy I took all the pictures in the camera"......and this is where you see the difference in children from today and when I was her age, she says to me "do you want to see the pictures right now, let me show you". *GIGGLE*
I had to explain that it wasn't a digital camera and she couldn't see the pictures yet, we have to take it to the store and have them developed, she was not impressed and even less when I told her she doesn't get the camera back, she said "what a waste" LOL
It's a really hot day here, I'm literally sweating
bullets....then I think about going to Arizona in two months and I wonder how I'll ever survive, I will probably melt on the sidewalk the first week I'm there....if you live in that area and walk by a pile of melting mommy, it will be me, look for the computer keyboard in one hand and the diet coke in the other.
I'm almost done with my Fannie Flagg book and I've truly enjoyed it, it's funny, it's cute and it's just written in a way that you can't put it down, if only there were more hours in the day, preferably "me time" so that I could read a page without being interrupted constantly. I'm dying to finish this one so that I can start on the Karon Phillips Goodman one, you have no idea how much I need that one right now.....Pursued by the Shepherd....boy does that hit home right now.
I've been trying to reconnect with God and I feel like a lost sheep just aimlessly walking around, grazing on the bad stuff while the good grass is on the other side waiting for me........isn't it wonderful to know that no matter how many times we stray the Lord is always there guiding us and finding our way back to him???
Anyway, it's time to start fixing dinner so I better get on out of here, don't forget the Slow Cooking Thursday tomorrow, would love to see some more participants join in so if you have some great crockpot recipes laying around be sure to come by tomorrow and share them with us, who knows, you may also find some great ones to try.
Have a great evening everyone,
