time for a happy entry!....


Whew, end of a work week...::yawn:: stretch...oops I only worked two days! But the two days were very long. Last night ended at 8:30 pm. I even had blood shot eyes from all the driving. AND no nap, which is usually scheduled between kindergarten routes, but NO. Today was easier, parents who 'forgot' their kids were getting out early were home, and waiting. I guess a trip to the school to retrieve their kid cured that. My trip this evening was over at 8:00, and was both boys basketball teams, they won so they were singing, rapping (if you call it that) and high fiving each other the 20 minutes home, thank God it was only 20 minutes, traffic was bad.

Did you know that there are very few pay phones anymore? I found that out last night. The girls basketball team played at a Catholic school in a very well to do suburb. I dropped my team and proceeded to call hubby and chat about the state of our life. Cell phone kept turning off, dang it. Then refused to power up. So the evening was nice, the town lovely with plenty of shops large and small. I took off on my quest for a pay phone. I even looked in the Jewel and Walgreen's, the train station had what used to be a phone, but it was removed. I thought about going in to a bar, but all of those were very high end. And of course everywhere I went people had phones hanging off their ears. I wasn't worried about calling hubby as my phone did this before -- cause? faulty battery. But I love the hunt...the search, plus a good brisk walk beats yelling at a kid.

I ended up going back to the nice Catholic school and tried my dang phone again with success.

Oh and according to the nice ladies giving away Turkey's they had a pay phone in the basement.

nice....

when I was at the high school last night I saw 2 payphones ..... wonder if they even worked. In the day where we al have a cell phone, it's amazing what we do if we didnt.
Take Care , enjoy your days off!
