Skateboarding and Painting

Last weekend I took a little road trip with my son and three of his friends. We drove four hours to Kettering, Ohio to check out DC Skate Plaza, which my son referred to as the "mecca" of all skate parks. I wish I could say that I whipped out my skateboard and showed them all a few new tricks. Actually, I whipped out my paintbrushes and finished two paintings that I had started earlier. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time.

My husband didn't fair so well. He was in charge of getting our youngest son to his football game and later, to a birthday party. "Hey, no problem," I distinctly heard him say before I left. After forgetting the directions to the football game, they drove around for half an hour before getting there after the game started. After taking a little nap and waking 5 minutes before my son needed picking up from the birthday party, he rushed down the driveway, drove off the side and got the car stuck on an embankment. After the tow truck pulled him out, he picked up our son an hour late at the party. "How'd it go?" I asked.

"Hey, no problem."
