We try to write notes on the back of photos before we put them in the girls' albums. Tonight is game four of the Stanley Cup finals. The Blackhawks are down 2 games to 1 against the Boston Bruins. Right now things aren't looking good that the Blackhawks will win game 4.
My nerves are shot watching this game. I'm just distracted and edgy. I'm really not focused on anything other than the game. So, what did I decide to do tonight? I decided it was a good time to write dates/locations on the back of some new photos.
What was I thinking?
Most of the photos were from the Missouri Botanical Garden's Chinese Lantern Festival. It was a beautiful event we attended last August with Aunt Mary. The problem is I was only partially focused on the photos.
On the back of the photos the Missouri Botanical Garden is called
Mizzou Botanic Garden
Mizzou Botanical Gardens
Missouri Botanical Garden
Missouri Botanical Gardens
Missouri Botanic Garden
Missouri Botanic Gardens
MO Botanical Gardens
Really, if you just started reading the back of the photos you'd wonder if I knew where we were for the Chinese Lantern Festival. Of course, given that my handwriting is so bad on most days that it requires a decoder, it's possible that the girls won't ever be able to read my scribble. If they ask I'll say, "Of course it says Missouri Botanical Garden. Can't you read it?"
We'll leave out the part about how Mommy was watching hockey and has no idea what she was writing. I think I'll work out my nerves by doing some yoga during games from now on.
