52 New Things – Week 38

Angie –

I drove on my first field trip. I tried to do this last year because I’m a bit of a car seat freak (Read: my about to be 5 year old is still in a 5 point harness) but it just never worked out to where they needed me. I was a nervous wreck every time she was gone, even when I arranged to meet the driving Mom and install her seat myself. (No, this is not school protocol, I told you I’m a freak) This year I signed up for everything and got my first taste of chaperoning his week. Outside of my need to be in control of my child (and her car seat,) I actually really enjoyed going. It also helped me to see exactly how this whole field trip thing works and has helped ease my fear for future trips that I won’t be able to participate in.

My new thing this week is getting my sofa and loveseat cleaned professionally.  Years of kids and dogs and parties and general usage have left my furniture in need of help.  I’ve tried spot cleaning and upholstery sprays, but I think this is one of those things you need help with.
