A quote from Anne of Green Gables...I find myself quoting her alot.
I know now why I liked reading about her so much growing
up, I can relate to her so well.
My favorite: "Tomorrow is a new day with know mistakes in it"
to which Mrs. Stacy promptly answered back, "yet!" Because
she knows Anne Shirley all too well.
So the boys had their first hunting class last night! I googled
directions, said it was only 31 minutes away. The plan was to
drop them off and head back into town for grocery shopping.
I drove an HOUR into TIMBUCKTU!!! I'm not lying...it was
back in the land time forgot! I passed Granny's restaraunt,
Granny's antique shop by the dozens, Uncle Bob's butcher
shop, and Lou's bate shop, nothing else! I was sure I
was going to get lost, not to mention it was raining! SO
we find the Fire Hall where they're taking their lessons.
By this time, I'm thinking we're just going to sit here
there is no way I'm going back into town I'll get lost again.
No grocery store in town, except a gas station which served gas
and groceries, so bought some snacks and drinks and we sat for
four hours waiting for the boys. Fortunately I brought my
Anantomy book and studied.
Lost my contact sitting there, drove home in the dark with
one good eye in the rain. Told the kids they should let
me know before I pass a STOP sign and make sure I get on
I pull in my yard at 10:30pm and there are two MP's
(military police) standing in my yard! HOlY MOLY!
What did I do this time?
ME: Got the kids. Check! House still standing.
Check! The dog....uh-oh
Everyone on FT Drum called about my dog barking!
Fortunately, the MP was super nice! He even asked
if I was wondering why they were standing in my yard.
"No dude, I figured you for lawn ornaments!?"
Anyway, Copper did not appreciate us not letting him
in after dark. So back into the laundry room he goes
tonignt when I go back to the land time forgot!
Well, today is a new day with no mistakes in it and
I'm off to take the boys to Archery class for 4H club!
Will post pics tomorrow~
