On Monday, while Matt was bored to tears in class all day, I braved the San Antonio Highways to drive downtown by myself to get to the zo0. It didn’t turn out to be nearly as scarey as I thought. The drive home on the other hand…
I took a page out of my sister Heather’s book and stopped at target to find matching shirts. First I wanted hideously orange shirts as they would be easier to spot in a crowd, but then I remembered that it is Halloween season, so hideously orange might very well be everywhere. So I went with a less hideous green.
Even Jack and I were wearing green. I took a lot more pictures, but hardly any turned out. I’m glad these did though. And I got half off the admission price because we have a Zoo membership here in Alamogordo.
By the time we were finished, Matt had just gotten out of class and asked if he had time to go work out. He did. I piled the kids in the car and drove home on five lane highways during rush hour. I’m surprised that I didn’t choke and loose it. I kept reminding myself “You’ve done this before”. And I had done it before, very often while living in Seattle. I made it back to Lackland AFB without anything interesting and I didn’t even get lost (as opposed to the way there).
