This is such an easy and fun project. Just hot glue glue crayons to a canvas and melt with a blow dryer. ⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣
⁣
There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar, I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree.⁣

Today starts the first week of “homeschool”. ⁣
⁣
Can I be totally honest? The idea of having to homeschool my kids terrifies me. Mostly because I don’t know if I can give them everything that they get at school. We rely so much on our teachers because they are AMAZING at what they do. We are going to try to make sure we make enough time in each day for every subject. I also want to make sure we incorporate some fun arts and crafts projects and outdoor time. ⁣
⁣
We are grateful for the schools providing a list of online resources. I can only hope that we can keep them on the right track. ⁣

What is your school situation like now that so many are closing?⁣

Almost Abducted: My Story

Courageous is not the first adjective I’d use to describe myself. I don’t open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don’t always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don’t make the same mistakes I do.

This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren’t something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people… until now.

I was 19 at the time, it was the mid 90’s. I had gone from full-time college student to showing up at school very occasionally and hanging out with all the wrong people. At one point, I was basically homeless, bouncing around from friend’s house to friend’s house, trying to find a permanent place to live. I was 350 miles from home and could have easily driven back, but at 19, my pride stood in the way of my better judgement. Or maybe it was that I had finally found this alternate world of people that weren’t anything like me and it excited me.

I had met a guy (not a good one, by any means), but he seemed to care about me and back then, that was enough for me to look past all of his faults. He was in a relationship with the mother of his children and was in and out of jail pretty regularly. He had a temper and was pretty well known in that area for the illegal things he did. I guess I considered him my “boyfriend”, although that was never official. He kept promising me that he was going to get us a place, but I don’t think it was ever really the plan. In the meantime, he dropped me off at his Mom’s “house” and asked me to stay with her, her husband and their two kids.

I put house in quotations because it was anything but. It was a two room, run-down building with walls and a roof. One room contained a table with their food and the other room was big enough only for a bed, which all five of us slept on, together. There were two separate structures in the back, one with a make-shift shower and the other with a toilet. While it was nothing fancy, at that time, I was just grateful to have a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in, even if there were 4 other strangers right beside me.

I had a car of my own, but on this particular night, my boyfriend had borrowed it because he said his car was low on oil. After two days at his Mom’s house, I knew I had to look for a better option, so I grabbed the keys to his car and drove toward my friend’s house. It wasn’t even a couple of miles later that his car started to make noises. I tried to keep going, but it completely broke down in the worst possible area. There were no street lights, no homes, no gas stations. It was just a dark, two-lane street with trees. It was not safe for anyone to be walking, let alone a 19 year old girl.

I tried to push the car to the side of the road but it wouldn’t budge. When I saw headlights coming toward me, I was so relieved. When the driver saw what I was trying to do, he pulled over and jumped out to help. At that moment, I was so thankful. He pushed the car easily, to the side of the road, out of sight and offered to give me a ride home.

I never even gave it a second thought.

Every lesson I was taught about strangers and hitchhiking went out the window. I jumped into his car like he was my buddy and told him where to drop me off (at the nearest gas station which was within walking distance of the place I was staying).  It was about a minute into that car ride that I realized I hadn’t even looked at his face. I couldn’t look at his face. I didn’t know what kind of car I was in or what color it was. I didn’t ask his name.

I panicked. I started telling him about my boyfriend and how that was his car and he had just gotten out of prison. In my mind, at that moment, what I said was going to scare him into not doing anything to me because I had a big, bad boyfriend. Stupid. He told me that he was new to the area and didn’t know anyone but was glad to have been there at the right time to help me. I felt him looking at me a couple of times. And not just looking at me like someone would do when they are having a conversation with you, but looking at me in a way that completely freaked me out. I still couldn’t look at him directly. I was too scared.

That car ride felt like an eternity. Thinking back on it now, it was probably only about a mile and a half. Maybe he was driving extra slowly or maybe I was realizing what a huge mistake I was making and time slowed down. He told me that before he could drop me off at the gas station, he had to stop at his house first. It was the ultimate red flag. I remember speaking really quickly and telling him that I was in a hurry to get back because my boyfriend was waiting and if he wanted to just drop me off there, I would walk the rest of the way. But he didn’t stop. He gave me another excuse and just kept driving.

He drove past the gas station that he was supposed to drop me off at and although I reminded him a number of times that it was where I wanted to be dropped off, he kept going. He started rambling about getting his wallet first so he could get gas when he dropped me off. I tuned him out after that because I was trying to figure out how to jump out of a moving vehicle without getting hurt. My heart was racing so fast, I could hear it. I don’t know what his intentions were, but I knew if I didn’t get out of that car, something very bad was going to happen to me.

There was a flashing red light, four way stop, about 1/4 of a mile past the gas station. I watched it. I waited. As soon as he came to a stop, I unlocked the door, jumped out and ran. I’m not sure I ever ran that fast before. I was wearing flip flops and I could feel them rubbing and tearing my skin as I ran, but I kept going. I didn’t look back. I knew if I could just make it to the gas station, I would be fine.

There was a line of pay phones at the edge of the gas station parking lot. I grabbed the first one I saw and pretended to dial. I had no money. Unless I was calling collect, I couldn’t actually make a phone call. And no one within driving distance was going to accept the charges. I considered calling the police, but I didn’t think he followed me. I also had no description of the man or his car, so what was I going to tell them?

Instead, I just stood there, with the phone to my ear, listening to the dial tone. I was in shock. I was sobbing quietly and trying to figure out what to do next. And just as I was about to hang up, I looked up and saw him. He was driving past the gas station, in the opposite direction very slowly. I memorized the car. It was an older model, four door Oldsmobile or Buick, in a bronze or light orange color. While the streetlight gave me a great view of the car, I still couldn’t see his face. But I knew it was him. I was so afraid he would stop so I pretended to talk to the imaginary person on the other end of the phone. I tried to get his license plate number, but he drove away.

And I ran. My feet were bleeding at this point because the blister that my shoes made had burst open. About half way to the house, I took off my shoes. Barefoot and bleeding, I finally made it back to the house. No one was there, so I sat in the corner and cried. I was sure I dodged a bullet that night. I was safe. Aside from my battered feet, I was going to be ok. That was of course, until my boyfriend got back and discovered I had left his car on the side of the road…

I was 19, making all the wrong decisions. Luckily one of those saved me from almost being abducted.

XOXO

    Wow, this is such a moving recollection! I think we honestly forget in moments of sheer concern that we need to remember the position we’ve placed ourselves in. I was gripping my shirt collar, and completely petrified the moment you said you hadn’t taken a look at the car! I’m so relieved that you’re okay! This could’ve ended so unfortunate, but I’m glad and I hope that you’re learning more as you get older that not everything is fight or flight. Sometimes it’s to take a step back and logically assess this situation. I’m also really glad you got out of that relationship. What a deadbeat!

    Was that the end of your relationship? I could imagine your boyfriend at the time wouldn’t have been happy to hear about the mess you got yourself into.

    Scary to think how there are people who pray on vulnerability .

      Well, I did wind up driving home the next day, but not after a sleepless night of looking out of the front window of my friends house, praying that my boyfriend didn’t find me.

    I can appreciate transparency. Blogging is a platform and a voice if you will that allows us to express ourselves and share our thoughts and ideas with the world.
