Day 34- Bad Parenting

Day 34- Bad Parenting

Everyone,

 Our phone went dead in the middle of the night so we wound up starting Day 34 a little bit late. The morning was a rough one for Kira. After a little cry on her part we decided that the next day would be a break day for us.

 We got to walking and we weren't all to far from a gas station were a pregnant woman was smoking out front. Tempted to say something we decided to just let our anger boil within. We have been seeing a lot of people smoking with children and really it is rather upsetting. Turns out she was our cashier. Another employee was nice enough to pay for our donut breakfast and even gave us the change after the transaction was completed.

 Two hours into our day we stopped for a quick bath in a creek. Getting the sweat of us feels really good and makes the rest of the day a whole lot nicer. Tiny fish nibbled at my toes. The water was cold, but Kiras mood had really improved.

 Another gas station pizza place for lunch. The woman helping us had a hard time with Shikira's name, but was very sweet and said that she had been slammed all day. Continuing with the bad parent theme, one man stopped to tell us how intellectually challanged his son was while his son was standing right next to him. It really angered me that he spoke so poorly of his son, lead alone that his son was standing right there (and the kid seemed at least decently well adjusted).

 Five miles or so into Lebanon we found an odd camping spot in a wedge of land between a street of houses and the freeway. We were sort of strong handed into the spot by rain, but it worked out for the best because we were well hidden and comfortable. Excited for a hotel the following day we called our parents and went to bed with smiles on our faces.

Here's to tomorrow!
