Talk about freedom!!!!! Woo hoo! Seriously, I never have time to myself.... for sure not during the day. I decided to go for a jog/walk on the bike path (after I filled out all the forms that I lied to the office about, saying that I filled them out months ago but forgot to bring them in).
Anyway, I think God was testing my germaphobia-ness cuz the cap of my water bottle fell on the street just one block from my house. Of course there was no way I was putting that cap back on my water bottle, so i took one more sip and tossed the bottle (into a garbage can, Orah). It was really hot and I was totally missing my water bottle, and couldn't even jog after a while because I was in desperate need of a drink. Four miles later, I got home, had a drink, and took a shower. Ahhhh... a shower, in the morning, after a workout, with no kids around....
Anyway, it was 11:30 and I was getting really excited to pick up Alyssa. I couldn't wait to see that sweet face smiling at me. When I got to school, I peeked in the window and saw her holding a little white cup.... finishing snack I guess. When the teacher opened the door, she threw the cup on the floor and ran to me, and gave me the biggest hug ever! She was covered in paint... it was even in her nose! On her t-shirt and her arms, but she looked totally precious to me!
She was rambling on and on in a language I couldn't understand except for nose and eyes. Then she saw a girl in her class walking with her grandma and pointed at her and smiled, which I understood to say, "Mommy, I made a new friend today!"
