Let's start with the big reason: my parents are in town. Doesn't sound so bad, does it? It is not, except that my parents are divorced and they are very rarely in town at the same time. Let me offer a little back story. I live in an area where there are a lot of tourists; where people come to spend weekends or weeks in the summer at resorts and cottages on lakes. My parents are divorced, and my Mom is dating someone who has a cabin on one side of town, and my Dad has friends who have a cabin on the other side of town that they allow him to use. Sounds good. They come up a couple of times a summer each, but it just doesn't happen on the same weekend.
|I am going to be going all these directions at once.|
Let's complicate things a little bit. My Baby Doll also wants us to go see her friend who is in the hospital. This is no big deal, and I really don't mind. The only problem is that the hospital is like 90 miles away. So figure in the three hours worth of driving (round trip), plus an hour or two of visiting, plus a little shopping and/or some dinner, and there goes a half a day. So three people in the course of the weekend. Like I said, I feel like I am juggling.
But that is life. We will get all three done and I will be able to see everyone that I want to see. That is just how things go sometimes. Besides, there are worst ways to spend the weekend than visiting with friends and family. It will just be busy, with a lot of running around. No big deal. Just so long as one of those flaming Pintos doesn't drop.
