I changed my mind and worked the election polls this year for the Spring Primary in Bullitt County. If you remember I pretty much declared myself as a "never again" poll worker after two attempts in Jefferson County.
So Dave went out of town Wednesday for business and I went to a "tent" meeting at a friend's church that didn't get over until about 9:15. When I came home, I was ready for bed. So I moved the decorative pillow and was about to pull back the comforter when I looked down and there was a lizard. My first thought was Oh, Dave must have left it there as a joke to scare me. Almost instantaneously I thought, no, Dave never plays jokes on me and I realized that it was a real, live, breathing lizard.
They put signs up well in advance alerting the community to the road work that was to close the road for three days at the beginning of August. Since we are still fairly new to the area, we weren't sure exactly what part of Cedar Grove Road would be impacted. When we finally figured it out, we had two options for the detour. Drive 3 miles East, then backtrack 6 miles on a road that loops above Cedar Grove or go approximately 5 miles south, 3 miles west and 4 miles back on the interstate to get to where we would have come out on Cedar Grove Rd. We chose the second option as it was quicker and less dangerous. Several others joined us. When the three days were up, the road was not opened to our great annoyance.
This parenting thing is all new to me and now I have experienced another first with the first day of school for our two foster girls. We all toured the new school on Monday night and met their teachers. Apparently you were supposed to bring your school supplies that night, but I didn't know. The girls are riding the bus to and from school. There was some slight confusion about the bus number and correct schedule, but we got that worked out quickly.
