So just one day off work and how do you spend it? Some would say that the hour or so I was horizontal was unproductive, but I got some reading done and kept figgy out of theVet’s hair long enough to get allow her to nap and that’s a big win for any pregnant lady. figgy was so taken with the donations-accepted balloon vendor (we gave $3 and probably should have given more) and his recreation of Ariel that was detailed enough to require a little purple twist for the seashell bra that she spent the rest of the day happily running around, balloon in hand and twisting her limbs into impossible contortions. So yeah, we were being cheap today, but not without reason.
Earlier, we also got to ride the carousel at Balboa Park together and that counts for much in my mind. You don’t easily change early habits and I was never fond of the Spokane Carousel, where loud organ music and dizzying speed coupled with a generic mistrust in any physical feats made every ride an exercise in gritted teeth and waiting for the damn thing to stop already. figgy on the other hand lights up at all kinds of rotary motion and is already insisting on a ride every time we stop by. I could get used to this.
