I survived the field trip yesterday. It was fun, but I think I'm getting too old for these all day field trips! I've been in a fog all day. We went to an amusement park a couple of hours from home, Dollywood. The kids had a blast, and my daredevil daughter rode 4 roller coasters. She certainly doesn't get that from me. I was the bag lady all day. I watched everyone's stuff while they rode rides. I did win a huge stuffed pink flamingo, though! One of the kids in the group said I bet out him and two five-year-olds to get it. Hey, it was a PINK FLAMINGO! You've gotta do what you've gotta do!
I stayed out of the little shops there, which took a lot of willpower. However, I did stumble into this little place that had stones for sale. They were very inexpensive, and I can see them wrapped with wire, hanging from a delicate chain.
I wound up with pink agate, quartz crystal, sodalite, amethyst, adventurine, and one other that I think I forgot to pick up information on. Oh, well. They also had quite a few unpolished stones, which would have also been interesting. Probably should have picked a couple up.
We have a softball game this evening, but I'm fantasizing about going to bed early. Probably won't happen, but I sure do need it!
