I am in a bit of a mood today and have been dreaming of vacation....not just any vacation but a vacation all by my lonesome. Yes I like to travel on my own, I also enjoy eating out by myself and even going to the movies solo. Someone at work asked where I would go and my first thought was hell I'd settle for Gatlinburg if it meant I could be by myself! What came out of my mouth was London which would be nice or maybe New York? Vienna? Munich? all places I have been and really enjoyed or maybe someplace I have not been Florence? Aruba? Scotland? Portugal? Hong Kong? Not that it matters all that much I don't seem to have in solo vacations on my horizon any time soon

modern day field trip

not only do we have to send in a signed permission slip but a NOTARIZED medical release in case of emergency. The field trip is Friday and I got the medical thing on Monday I don't have enough else going on in my day. I am a notary but I am fairly sure they would frown on my notarizing myself. What I find even more amusing is the space for both parents to sign..HA! they are going to have to make due with just my signature.

we did the family cookout thing at MIL's house yesterday it was also a bon voyage for SIL who is moving to Las Vegas. Of course a family friend was there with her granddaughter T who is a year older than C. They have played together since they were very young, birthday parties, family gatherings etc. Not best friends or anything but they are together often enough to get along however I sensed a definite shift in things yesterday. C got water allover the jersey he was wearing & he took it off-not so strange he has always been a bit odd about that sort of happenstance if it's wet it's dirtyin his world I almost taught him how to do his own laundry when he was 3 but he couldn't reach the knobs to start the machine. Anywho yesterday wet jersey off and this left him in a plain white shirt okay fine except he spilled food on it now that doesn't bother him normally, wipe it off and go(and no I don't know why food junk on his clothes is okay but not water somethings I am better off not trying to understand). This time however he put his shirt on inside out to hide the stain from T I suppose???? When did we start caring what a girl thought? So big ewww I am so not ready for all that nonsense
