Going Out... Or not.

Going out today.

Canceled plans, staying home.

Library instead maybe?

Better idea - trip to distant friends. Going out!

Children fed.


Clad in shoes and jackets.

Baby nursed.

Diaperbag replenished.

Water bottles filled.

Maps printed.

Children filed out the door.

Loaded and buckled into seats.

Plans made; all ready to set in motion.


What's this?

Van door ajar?

Turn key.


Dead battery.

No motion after all.

What now?

Don't know yet.

My word for today:

Oh, I know that feeling! But I must say that I'm not so yielding. I hope your day turns out okay in spite of circumstances!

Grace McHugh said...

Ooooh, that word. Flexible. Wow. Does flexible mean the same as patient??

Momma Bug said...

Ahhh.... yes. Patient.
Another good word for today.
If it doesn't mean the same thing, I think being flexible might PRODUCE patience!
