a strike, a pain, and a fear.

three things on my mind currently...

1. "a strike" to share the joy of being able to strike something off my "to do before i'm forty" list: PAINTBALL. Yep I did it FINALLY, it was a lot of fun! We took some youth on saturday and it was good times, a tad crazy the dude basically passed us guns, made us wait around for a long time, gave us bullets then sent us out! I was like how do you shot!? Pull the trigger...but no rules or anything! I got a nice welt right on the gluteous maximus, it hurt to sit for a day or so hahaha, plus a few other welts and bruises, good times though.

2. tonight i tried skateboarding with some of my youth girls... that is were " a pain" comes in. I fell. on both attempts. the first one i was just trying to turn and BAM, bailed. haha. the second i was showing them how to do an aweley *SP?!?!* i mean i could do one when i was 6! ... yeah not so much anymore. that time i totally fell on my side and that my friends was painful!

3. "a fear"...well tonight was interesting because i was walking home and met up with one of the youth gals, who was trying to get home via bus but it wasn't coming so i took her naturally...LONG story but it ends with me hoping htat her and another gal will get to there destination saftley and wiht the know of their parents. i left them at one of there houses, but i dont know if they will stay there...yeah, it's just scarey, the youth are so different than i was. i love them and fear for them and what they do and the choices that they make...i coudlnt' imagine being a parent HONESTLY!

well that's all for now, i have to go to bed it's late and i have to be up early to go to preschool...youngin's too young to decieve just yet.

i disagree...pre-school kids i know are pretty good at decieving!
The only thing i can do on a skateboard is sit on it and push myself along with my hands!!

True - I know some toddlers that are already practicing... so cool you're an aunty again - Congrats on that. I do love kids, but it's nice to not have to be the parent, that's for sure... You always get to do the fun stuff, and then leave the discipline etc, to the parents.
Always the good guy/girl :D
