So last nights adventure was the rescue (well, relocation) of a big old snapping turtle. It was in the middle of the main drag of the neighborhood where it had been left by a fireman who pried him off a car (who knows, I just report what I hear from the local 9 year olds). The old guy was covered in mud and had what appeared to be an old wound from a run-in with a car where part of his shell had caved in. Aaron thoroughly impressed the neighborhood youth by not only touching a snapping turtle, but getting him into a box so we could move him to a safer spot near the water. Anyway, we moved him and he seems to have headed out to wetter quarters. You never know what excitement can occur on a Thursday night!
The other adventure of the day (besides actually committing to a size to order the bridesmaid dress in) was a trip to Sam's Club to buy supplies for the soup kitchen meal I am in charge of serving this Sunday. 5 bags of salad, 48 pounds of meatballs, 9 dozen sub rolls, 5 jugs of spaghetti sauce, 3 monster bags of shredded mozzarella, 5 cans of fruit cocktail, 6 gallons of milk and a bunch of desserts later I think I am good to go! Needless to say, I was quite the sight trying to push two of those huge carts through the parking lot (not to mention trying to stuff it all in the not-so-large fridge at the church).
The next couple of days will be nonstop running, I'm afraid. With T-ball at 9:30, dance recital type thing at the local Dairy Days at 11:30, a 3 hour round trip visit Grandmother and her new hip tomorrow afternoon, Bridges of Hope from 9 to 2 pm on Sunday and final touches needed on my online classes before noon Monday, I am thinking it would be wise for me to head to bed for a little pre-rest now! I do have to admit I prefer to be busy and running around, but I might have gone a little overboard this time. At least it keeps me out of trouble - mostly!
