i got myself some new wheels and passed mine on to naomi.
half way to the bike shop naomi exclaims, “ollie is in the car!” we were already 15 minutes from home and ollie was a great distraction for unhappy kids. but it was hot and we FOR SURE did not want cat pee in the car, so we carried ollie with us in and out of every store.
all i could think is that people must have thought we were one of those families….that i was one of those ladies. it could be worse, i guess. ollie did great and got about 4 hours straight of holding. the kids were thrilled.
my new bike still works for hauling the trailer and using myself as llama or pack mule for my friends. jen buys me treats to haul her load.
the amount of stuff we have hauled home from the thrift shop, library and grocery store is pretty amazing. today annie said, “woa. i don’t know if you will be strong enough.” (that is a picnic basket type cooler full of stuff…i stopped at the grocery store yet too!)
annie, i was. tired, but strong enough.
