I dropped off The Inventor at soccer practice the other day. And as I often do while she is at practice, I go for a power walk. But this day it was different, I noticed that it was trash night in the town I was walking in. Just what I needed I thought to myself. You see The Inventor needed 2 liter bottles to make bottle rockets for the Girls Alive class I teach on Wed. nights. The director had forgotten to remind everyone to bring 2 liter bottles, she called me in a panic right before I went for my walk. I immediately spied the green recycling bins in town and knew we were in luck. So you can only imagine how I looked out power walking, with my iPod, scouring though recycling bins for the coveted 2 liter bottle. I ended up stealing 5 out of the bins. I am certain I looked good walking though my town carrying 5 two liter bottles, stopping and digging through the bins, and listening to my iPod. I ended up getting a longer walk due to my “treasure” hunting! Being a mom is always a new adventure!
