1. Yesterday Dave took the day off and we took the kids to a local water park. It was small but pricey and not at all too crowded. The boys loved it and loved us for thinking up such a great plan. But more importantly Dave and I ran around playing with the kids like a couple of 8 year olds, which was soooo nice.
2. Last night I met a friend in the East Village for dinner. She and I talked about our very different lives. Me: a stay-at-home mom, figuring out the world of Special Ed and the very best way to make bagels. And her: a civil rights lawyer, battling big corporations that are accused of demoting and blatantly withdrawing benefits from female employees after those employees decided to become mothers. The conversation made me glad that there were folks out there standing up against injustice and simultaneously relieved that I was not one of those people.
3. Tonight we are heading to another friend's house for dinner which has me wondering: Have my friends decided amongst themselves that I need to get out more? What gives?
I recently made this scrapbook page and I added strips of crazy paper under the photos. Then I decided the paper was too crazy so I painted over them with white paint. Sometimes I just crave getting messy. Sometimes messy is just about right.
