Something Amazing

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Something pretty neat happened today. All by myself I found my way home. RainbowMan Blue Boy and I went for a walk, maybe three blocks to the man made pond with fountain thingy. They liek to throw rocks in it and I like to catch the frogs. We walked almost completely around the pond when I saw the flag pole. SWEET. I knew that if I could find a back alley behind this house was a park the kids had never played in!

We found the park, we had a blast... the sand isnt sand, its crushed tires, and it was awesome to walk in. I burried the boys, then I burried myself. It was great. On the way home I wanted to show Rainbow Man how to get from our house to the park, should he ever want to go with his nana. I planned on taking another 25 minutes to get home the way we had come. But then I looked down a back alley and thought...hmmmmm. So we explored and it seems that if you walk for five minutes you end up basically in our back yard. A direct line from our place to the park, no turns, just walk. And I was the one who found it!

This is only important because I can't find ANYTHING. I am the reason the pharse "directionally challenged" was coined. I suck at directions. It's bad enough that some times I think I should get an arrow tattoo'd on my butt so I know where to take the toilet paper! Honest!

I ment to take a picture of my banana Bread for y'all to drool over, unfortunatly, all thats left are crumbs, and that just doesn't make an interesting photo! But the recipie was a success....

Now, this is just for Mr. Fab. He let it slip that he can't read Chinese... so I assume he can't read Japanese either!! I thought everyone could read it! My bad! Anyways... don't tell him what it says... let him go catch a babelfish or somthing!

FlipFlopMmma It's happened before. One time I went to my boyfriends place ( now he my hub). It was a five minute drive. Left my place at seven, got to his at 10, and had him get in his car and show me the way home. That was back when I had a curfew. He picked me up from then on.

WebMiz Hehe I remember back in my days, I just sat and read instead of playing.
