Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Isn’t it odd how…

Thoughtfully penned on October 30th, 2007 and generally concerning Fall Festivities, Sidetrack'd, Things that make you say "what?!"

I might have mentioned that it rained here every day last week. Not just scattered showers, but cold rain all day long. Little and I were longing for a dry moment to play outside by the time Friday afternoon came along.

Every day last week I felt like we needed to do something to get out of the house. Monday we ran errands and had a doctor appointment; Tuesday we went to the mall with a friend; Wednesday we went to Bible Study Fellowship; Thursday we had a play date at a friend’s house; and Friday we went to Target and the mall (to return some things) just to get out of the house, not because we really needed to.

So today it is a beautiful sunny day with a temperature of 61 currently and headed toward the low 70s. And what have we done?

I’m still in my pajamas at 12:20. Go figure.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. I have those days, when I just HAVE to get out of the house.

  2. Ha! I’ve realized that by the time I do odds and ends around the house, we eat breakfast, get showered and dressed, make the beds, etc…. its lunch time! How did I use to get out of the house, both of us ready, by 7:30am?! Ha! I’m official I guess! BTW, I talked to the leader of the kids for BSF, I guess, unless Chandler gets worse, we’re headed there tomorrow! Since no fever, we can come! :) Super excited! Gotta go, Bed time!

  3. I think when you feel cooped up, you have to get out! When you know you could go out, you don’t feel it is so necessary. I am the same way! When it snows (which doesn’t happen often), I all of a sudden feel the need to go ANYWHERE!
