Today we visited the Ballard Locks. We learned more about the life cycle of the salmon and got to see some cool boats go from the bay to the sound and vice versa.
After we left the house for our little field trip, though, I discovered I forgot my cell phone. I wasn't about to go back home for it, but my goodness, it was anxiety producing to be without. What did people do before cell phones?? I kept worrying that the car would break down or something bad would happen. I suddenly felt so isolated just because I wasn't able to call someone at a moments notice. Then I felt it was ridiculous that I was so anxious over not having a phone. Really, do I need to be able to call someone all the time? Then my ridiculousness started to make me feel anxious. I mean, did Ma Ingalls freak out when Pa went to town and was gone for days and she couldn't call someone??? Why should I be such a baby? So, despite being ridiculous and anxious, I did make it home safe and sound. No need for calls at all.
