Uneventful day turned eventful!

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

My plan for the day was to wake up, go for a 2.5 mile jog, drive the boy to a job interview, stop by the bank, then go to work.

Well this is what happened. The morning went by fine. I woke up at 6:30am and went for my run. It was so nice out and I wanted to keep running, but I was on a time limit so had to cut it at 2.5 miles. I showered and hoped in the car. I was expecting the boys interview to last half an hour, but it took an hour and fifteen minutes! Apparently he had not one, but two interviews! The ladies that interviewed him first thought he was overqualified for a dishwasher position and had him do an interview for a chefs position! Very cool.

By this time I didn't want to go to work (my work is done on my own, I just have to meet the hours) so I decided we would stop by the bank quick and go to the park. When we got to the park and walked for about 5 minutes we decided to leave because of all the bugs! I even got the boy to run out of the park with me, and for someone who said they can not run because of asthma, he did very well.

At this point we decided to go home. On the way home I saw a lone female duck walking around very confused. I thought this was odd and I slowed down to see if she had babies with her Well, just like anytime we check on wildlife, the babies fell into a sewer drain!!! We stopped, both of us being trained in wildlife rehab. to help the little guys out. Out came the box and in went my arm to pick these little guys up. 7 ducklings and one mad mama later, we walked them over to a near by pond. We let the babies go (they were so cute! they didn't want to leave my boys legs alone, one sat on his foot and wouldn't move!) and mama finally found them and off they went into the pond!

I'm so glad we slowed down to check on her other wise, I'm sure someone would have hit her and the babies would have died in the drain. We were almost hit by 3 cars trying to get them out of the drain. I was a little depressed at the lack of help we got from people. No one stopped to ask what was going on or if we needed help. One lady kept driving by just staring at us without a single word spoken. It would have been nice if someone could have made sure no one would hit us... but all is done and the ducklings (only a few days old, still had their egg tooth) and mama are happy now.

    wow great... it is a weird coincidence that today, at work, there was a mama duck with 10 babies walking around on the street and people stopped to get them to the nearby park... not an easy task to catch them all... :-)
