hide & seek

This afternoon I played a huge game of hide & seek. My fellow players are stealth. They can fit into all the nook and crannies of each room, so it is a tough role to play with them. Now, me being twice...okay maybe three times their size, makes it really hard to find a decent hiding place. The past few times we have ever played it, I proved myself to be a horrible hide and seeker.

But today, I dominated. I was behind doors, behind barbie houses, behind rocking chairs. I probably looked a fool. But then they both pulled a fast one on me. I couldn't find them to save my life. They had climbed up into the linen closet and covered themselves with blankets. It was the most difficult and sneaky of places! What makes this game funny though, is the point in which they feel they've been hiding too long for you so they'll yell out because they're tired of waiting. Oh well.

If you actually read all of that, thanks.

Today I did something else that I have been putting off for weeks. Its been dust storm season here in lubbock and if anyone has been around during that time, you know exactly what that entails. A brown sky, gusty winds, dirt in your ears, teeth, and nose. Perfect to walk to class in. But even though it is supposed to rain in the next few days, and my car is an outside car (as opposed to an inside one) I just couldn't handle it any longer. I got my car washed. I payed money to wash it. I mean, really, on top of general dirtiness there were little hand prints thickened with dirt all over my windows and after it was clean, I swear I could hear my poor little car say 'gosh loren finally, thank you, uggghhhh.'

That was today.

More packing. More needed tissues.

Have a blessed night!
