I bought discounted tickets to Idlewild towards the beginning of the summer. The only stipulation was that we had to go on a weekday before July 31st. Due to scheduling difficulties, Jim ended up taking a day off last Thursday. Keep in mind that he chose that day randomly, and weeks ago. After telling Dylan about going to Idewild all week, of course, it rained. We ended up going to the Children's Museum. He still had a blast, and we all loved watching him, but I was disappointed. After realizing July 31st was this Friday, Jim took Friday off, so we can try again. Monday and Tuesday were gorgeous days. I work Mondays and Tuesdays. Today it is pouring. That is fine with me. I just checked the forecast and guess what it says for Friday? Thundershowers!
Yesterday, when I took the girls to a playground, I thought, "Watch me run into my old employer and her daughter here". Ten minutes later, I heard her calling my name! Have you noticed that very often, you will think something totally random, and it will happen? Like when you think of a song, and it is the next song on the radio. Or, when you think of a movie you haven't seen in years, and it is playing on HBO that night? Or, you think of someone you haven't heard from in years, and receive an email from them? This happens to me A LOT. So, I've decided to make it work for me.
IT WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL DAY ON FRIDAY. IT WILL NOT RAIN. IT WILL NOT RAIN. IT WILL NOT RAIN.
(He was much too busy to look at the camera, or heaven forbid - SMILE! The one with him in the raincoat, where he is smiling, was after he fell, dancing, on the slippery floor. He fell, then laughed, at his klutzy self!)
