Today was a first for me! I took all five of the children fishing! I don't know the foggiest thing about fishing except that I hate to look at, smell or touch FISH! The whole subject makes me nauseous. However, I do love to avoid housework and let me tell you, there is a boat load to avoid! So when the laundry gets too high, this mama gets going!
In actuality, I merely observed the fishing activities. Annie asked me to bait her hook. I gagged just looking at those worms; there was absolutely no way I was going to tear one in half! Ethan was kind enough to do the honors. The kids hooked a few fish and I cheered from a distance. No one fell in the river. We all returned home safe and sound. I might have gone fishing today but the laundry didn't! Should I be ashamed? I can always tame the housework monster tomorrow!!
