An Unrelated Story
The last week or so has been kind of crazy: Lots to do at work, DangerBear got sick, and Chickpea was in two parades. There's a Cute Little Town about 25 minutes from here that has a heritage festival every year, and Chickpea's school was marching in the parade on Thursday and Friday of last week.
Let me preface this by saying that I hate driving, especially in busy areas. Let me also say that I am spatially challenged. In other words, I can't read a map to save my life, and get easily confused.
So when we got to Cute Little Town on parade day, I parked pretty far away from the festivities. I didn't want to deal with the closed-off roads and oodles of pedestrians. On Thursday I remembered to write down directions from where I'd parked to the parade site.
On Friday, I forgot. And I got lost on the way back. As in, "walking several miles out of our way" lost. With a very tired six year old. I should have taken my GPS out of the car, just in case, but I didn't think I'd need it. After all, I'd been to Cute Little Town plenty of times!
Praise God, I had my cell phone. And the battery was even charged! I eventually overcame my pride and called DangerBear, who got me directions. We probably walked nearly five miles. Chickpea was not happy with me.
Another praise: The weather was gorgeous. About five minutes after we found the car, it started to rain. :)
I've been doing really well with some of my goals:
- Straightened up the house every day
- Drank my water every day
- Took Chickpea outside almost every day
- Took my vitamin almost every day
- Cleaned the kitchen most days
- Ate breakfast most days
- I've missed several days of Bible reading
- I haven't written in my journal in a couple of days
- I've only made dinner about half the time
- My well-intentioned cleaning schedule went *pouf*
- Fruit with breakfast and lunch? What?
