Tomorrow is the day for our first festival (tonight is an auction so we may be in business during that) and I'm so excited but along with the excitement is this scary feeling. The previous owners are setting it up this afternoon and we are meeting them at the campground later. So we won't get to watch them set up.
One time doesn't do it for me. We need to do it ourselves to learn it. Thank heavens they're going to be there today and tomorrow to run us through it again.
Will we remember everything? How to hook up the trailer to the truck? How to light the deep fryers? And backing it into the driveway when we bring it home? That will be the fun part. We really need to have someone there with a video camera cause that will surely be a "funniest videos" clip. Hopefully the garage remains intact.
But a big plus. I found out dogs are allowed at the campground! Yea! Maggie can go along tomorrow and hang out with us. Wish us luck!
I've been pretty laid back lately so not much has pushed my buttons. Oh, don't get me wrong, I still tend to verbalize in the privacy of my car when other drivers do stupid things like not accelerating on the on-ramp to the interstate...or not pulling up into the intersection when the light's green and they're waiting to turn left, which means they're the only ones that are going to get to turn when the light changes again. Or how about the guy who was obviously texting while he was coming onto the interstate and blending with the traffic...stupid. But I've tried to mellow out about the little things...and...still...trying...
But something that has pushed my buttons lately is a little thing that's been happening on a daily basis. My neighbors, that I don't have anything to do with because...well, because I simply don't like them...are really getting on my last nerve.
But I have to ask myself...are my gripes justified? Or have I just become bitchy in my old age?
So now that I've gotten that off my chest, on to more enjoyable things. Like reading.
Celebrity In Death by J.D. Robb:
Nothing science fiction about these stories, just very well-written mysteries/suspence with cool "toys" we will probably have access to in the near future. And if we don't, we should have.
Lt. Dallas and her husband, Roarke, are attending a dinner with Hollywood's primo cast of a new movie. When one of them is murdered while everyone else is watching blooper clips from the movie, Dallas and her side-kick, Peabody, must track down the killer in a world where all the suspects are actors....giving award winning performances.
Another winner from J.D. Robb and full of suspence and intrique, including futuristic toys that I'd love to try out.
