Life has been a little hectic since school started. We went camping with a bunch of other families on Labor Day weekend, and then my husband and I went to Vegas for an awards banquet and I finished painting my dad’s train room for his birthday. Since I got back this week, I’ve had something or other every single day and haven’t had a speck of time to myself. Sigh!
But here’s what I’ve learned…thanks to my dog, Ginger.
When life sends a deluge instead of a light sprinkle…don’t sweat it. Just go with the flow. Lay your head into the sprinkler full on and let yourself get wet. Why fight it?
When you do, there are some fun things that happen. My fun new adventures that stemmed from busy or stressful activities this week include:
- Seeing up into my daughter’s nostrils with a microscopic camera thingie that seemed to see clear to her brain. It was pretty dang cool. I don’t know what that ‘thingie’ will cost me…but I now have a new appreciation of a human nose.
- Seeing into the bones of my other daughter’s mouth as she got her wisdom teeth taken out. The dentist was super cool and invited me to look over his shoulder while he extracted the teeth. I couldn’t believe the mouth, gums and jawbone or whatever bone it was could take so much pressure and prying. It was kind of bloody and gory at times, but incredibly fascinating.
- Painting aspen trees. I’ve never done them before, and they were really fun. I now want to paint them everywhere—like a graffiti artist—only aspen trees would look so much better than weird shaped letters on sides of trains that make no sense.
And now I will end with this tiny tip of knowledge. There are some strange looking people in the Vegas airport. I almost felt like a blog could be created on that subject alone (like the People of New York blog). Have a great weekend (or week…whenever you read this).
