I forgot to post a few special moments from last week...
Awkward: Mom placed her very important notebook on the back of the car so as not to forget it... and forgot it.
Awesome: We drove several hours before noticing and it was still there!!!
Awkward: The door to our cabin was hanging open when we arrived... It's been broken sometime between our last visit and now.
Awesome: Nothing was missing nor was there was there any weather damage.
And onto this week:Awkward: My sandal broke.
Awesome: I fixed it.
Awkward: Yes that's a twist tie and a rubber band.
Awkward: All the local business shut down their restrooms in preparation for the burners.
Awesome: For the first time, we're considered 'locals' and can sneak into the deluxe facilities.
Awesome: Finally morphing into outdoorsy Rachael.
Awkward: Meaning I don't bother to swat the flies off me anymore. What have I become?!
Awesome: Meeting burning man festival goers from all over the world.
Awkward: Not knowing geography so I just say, "Hmm... that's far!" to everyone.
Awesome: Having someone compliment my makeup when I'm not wearing makeup.
Awkward: Specifically referring to my lovely purple eyeshadow.
"Um, thanks... that's allllll me. I call it insomnia violet."
Awesome: Doodling on a pier (see this post)
Awkward: A gust of wind blew all loose pens and pencils into the cracks and thus, into the water.
Awesome: Bigger-little and I undertook a daring rescue attempt and mostly succeeded.
Awesome: Making friends with a band's roadie (and having her offer to pay me for my photos!)
Awkward: Accidentally referring to her as a 'groupie' when talking to the band later.
Awesome: Having a good big sister talk with the littlest about accepting disappointment like a big girl.
Awkward: Halfway through, realizing the talk was more helpful to me. I have a lot to learn...
Are we all done cringing at my life? Good.
Now you tell me what's been awkward and awesome in YOUR week?
