Drills We NEED To Have …Gina’s Favorites

Drills We NEED To Have …Gina’s Favorites

Summer is in full swing at our house, so I think it’s a good time to review some helpful drills.

Drills We Actually NEED To Have

My kids’ school had a fire drill the last day of school.  I’m not sure they really benefitted from that one.  Let’s face it, few of us ever benefitted from the monthly fire drill at school beyond getting some extra time to mess around and maybe to push off a math test.

The wind is blowing like crazy here in SoCal today, making my already unruly hair turn into a truly rebellious entity. So, for Throwback Day this week, I knew my Because Sometimes The Hair Whisperer Is Not Available post was just what the doctor…er uh…hair dresser ordered.

Now there’s something you have to understand about my hair.  My hair has a life all its own.  It’s rather contrary sometimes.  Frequently quite sassy.  I suspect that it might be a teenager.

Oh The People You’ll Meet!

We were in a crowd of nearly 10,000 at an open audition this week that I’d promised I’d take my daughter  to, all day, jammed together like cattle (hence the name “Cattle call”).  We met lots of people.  Most of them were friendly folks filled with good humor and common sense.

Most of them.

Some, well, not so much.

Road trip!!!

The OCD in me was stressing all week because we couldn’t head out at 4AM to “get a jump on the day,” which tells me I am turning into my father.  But, Daughter#3’s leg wound check-up this afternoon took precedence, as it should have.
