Day 287: Today's Did-Done List

It has been a full day.  Here's our "did-done" list:

Garage sale shopping, where we found a chair that will hopefully work for J's desk.

Realized when we got back in the car and drove to the pet store for pet meds that I didn't have my bank card.

Back home to get the card.

Decided to forego the pet store until Monday.

To Prince Gallitzen State Park for an afternoon of swimming.  It was windy.  I froze.  The kids did not.  They played in the water for three hours, completely oblivious to their mother's chattering teeth.

On the way out of the park, we stopped at the playground.  Somehow on the slides A wacked J in the eye with his hand.  J freely admits that it was an accident.  But her eye really hurt.  Hemmed and hawed and tried to convince her to wait until Monday, but realized it really WAS  hurting a lot, since she didn't want to cry coz the tears made it hurt worse.  So we quit the park and headed back to town.

Dropped A off at some friends while J and I headed to the ER.  Nicely scratched cornea  Incidentally, the drops that turn scratches green under ultraviolet light?  Way cool.  Her eye is quite sore tonight, but she should be right as rain in a couple of days.

Trip to McDonalds with Julia after two hours in the  ER.  Saw some police officers on horseback.  Good for a few minutes of entertainment.

Firefly chasing with the kids and the cat.  Kids? 8.  Cat?  0.  Came in when A started wailing coz the firefly he caught flew high up in the sky.  "Noooo!  It fly hiiiiiiigh!  Caaaatch it Muuuummmy!"  Even later at bed, the thought of the firefly flying up sent him into another fit of tears, poor tyke.

The photo above is of a water lily the kids found in the lake.  Didn't realize how badly those nails of J's need a trim.  Yoikes!

Another gorgeous photo Lynn! Oh and loved the post. Some days just laugh at our attempts to get things done, don't they? But sometimes it turns out all right or evenn better. Although a trip to the ER is definitely not better, nor fun. Hope J is feeling better soon.
