Mama's Free Time and a Dump Run

Thursday was a great day. I made arrangements for a babysitter for the little one and I was going plant shopping with my friend. It started out a bit hairy with a small monkey wrench thrown in but it ended up OK because I was on the road (and free) even earlier. We headed to Wareham and did Walmart and Home Depot. I was not grabbed by much but a new toilet seat-oh well. We also had a decent meal without chicken nuggets and chocolate milk and I didn't even have to cut Bonnie's food for her. It was delightful. Exactly what this woman needed.
Another big part of the day was our trip to the Bourne Dump. Bonnie told me it would be an adventure but I had no idea. When you enter you roll onto the scale and they weight you. Thanks!! Blame it on the truck and trash please.
Then we had to drive over a freaking mountain which was scary to say the least. As we crested the top there were these machines pushing the trash into a heap and around the edges where piles. One pile was actually boats-yes a pile of boats. Crazy!!
The ground was actually ground up tires and trash. The whole place smelled like rubber to me. The man driving the huge earth mover thing told us to back up to a pile and dump it out. While we were doing that I was amazed at all the mail including bank statements blowing about. The first one I picked up thinking it was from us and worried it would get away until I realized they were everywhere. Again I say-CRAZY!!
Listen people-Buy a shredder. You life it blowing around the dump.After I had my crew back in the car we picked up my nephews after school so that got us an hour or so at the playground so everyone had a good day I think.That night we did Teaticket School night at Papa Gino's with Dad so I did ZERO cooking all day-WOOT!
So all in all the day was amazing even with the trip to the dump thrown in for excitement. I was in bed in my jammies by 8:30-Surprised??
