the flourish of creativity continues... these are some of the items I've been working on this week:
I thought about keeping the slip dress and wearing it to go dancing last night, since it was friday and my favorite dj was spinning the music, but my feet were killing me because we had a field trip to the forest yesterday at school. Now as much as I love the forest, because of all the rain we've had, the bugs were having a hey day sucking all of our blood. And to top it off, I was spraying bug spray on all of the kids, and as I squirted a big gust of wind came by, and it blew right in my eyes.
Luckily it did not blind me, but I had to go find a bathroom inside the nature center to rinse them out. Unable to remove the resulting undereye mascara, the kids kept pointing at me and telling me I had black stuff around my eyes. I only remove that stuff with the proper sponge and cleanser, so I was not about to rub hard and risk making my eye wrinkles worse. Anyone in their 30's understands what I'm talking about.
(Unfortunately I will only be able to say I'm in my 30's for a little bit longer, so I have to insert that into as many sentences as possible.)
Even with the bug spray, I told the kids our activity while riding the bus back to school was to count how many bug bites we all had. Who doesn't love a sticky, sweaty, humid field trip, right? We actually did have fun though.
So tonight is date night, but my feet are still aching, so I think I'll opt for movies on the couch instead of dancing, plus it's like 96 degrees outside, so thank goodness for netflix!
