Today is my last day of work this week before my field trip/NASCAR trip. Tomorrow I'll be riding a school bus to Springfield to visit the State Museum with Maddy's 3rd grade class. I thought we would be able to drive, but Maddy informed me that since we were one of the first to turn in our chaperone sheets, she could pick if we drove or rode the bus, and she thought it would be fun to take the bus. Oh really? Oh, and she now gets to take her Nintendo DS because I can put it in my purse. Uh huh. Actually, I think it will be fun. However, if it gets too bad I'll just listen to my iPod and play Mario Olympics on her DS. Ha!
Tomorrow afternoon when we get back home, we will throw my bags in the car, drop off the dogs at the critter camp, and I'll drop her at gymnastics before heading over to my sugar's house to pack up his truck and hit the road. We're stopping in Nashville for the night, then heading out to Bristol on Friday morning. I.Can't.Freakin'.Wait.
The forecast is calling for showers Friday and Saturday, and partly cloudy on Sunday. Yay - perfect tailgating weather...eh, not so much. I swear, if you sent me and my friend Lynn to a drought-stricken area to do any kind of outdoor activity, we would make it rain. It's a gift.
We head back home on Monday. I'll be back online with pictures and stories on Tuesday.
Until then, I just want to say thanks for all the supportive responses to my post of yesterday. My therapist called this morning and I've got an appointment scheduled. I feel better after yesterday's histrionics. Sometimes you need a little meltdown to allow yourself to regroup and say, OK, let's try this again.
