Today I am grateful for busy schedules. Wow! It’s been a week since I’ve written a blog. I’ve posted on Facebook a few times, but no blog. That has to be a five year record for me. Guess that’s what happens when you are thoroughly living life.
What a fantastic time I’m having with my mom, other family and friends. It is very nice to not be driving long distances, but I guess I put that to the test the other day when I got wrong directions from someone as to where the KFC was located. Mom got a nice tour of the countryside, but was disappointed she didn’t see any cows. And we got back, which is a testament to GPS and not my personal navigational skills.
Friday night we went to a wonderful Fall Fest in Verona, Wisconsin, where my niece works for the Chamber of Commerce. What a great job everyone did. My only regret was that I didn’t have some grandkids with me, because then I could have sat and done the crafts legitimately. It’s a bit creepy to have an old woman sit down to “play” all by herself.
There were at least five fire pits in the middle of the field so Himself had a chance to toast his ass like a big old marshmallow. AND there was a Jakarta food truck so I got to dust off my twenty Indonesian words to the absolute shock, dismay and delight of the woman behind the stand. Himself had a bowl of deep chocolate ice cream bigger than his head, then wondered why he was so cold. Back to the fire pit for more ass roasting.
A couple of friends with young kids had planned on joining us at the festival, but we decided to have them come for breakfast Saturday morning at my sister’s house instead. What a blast we had. Boy, I sure do wish we lived closer to some of these people so we could see them more often.
Our daughter and her husband came in from Sheboygan for the weekend so it was a real crowd until the little ones had to leave for a birthday party. They were barely gone and my niece and her husband arrived for “game day”, which has nothing to do with football and everything to do with games I barely understand but play anyway because I’m such a magnanimous trooper! I actually liked a couple of these but don’t ask me the names of them because I have no clue.
It’s nice to have down time. It’s nice to have a really busy schedule. But it’s the best to have fun doing both!
