It is strange, coincidence that is.

When leaving a grocery store, I am amazed at how often  that the guy parked beside me is also putting his/her groceries in their car. There must me 200 cars in the lot but this happens many times.

Anyway, the day of the GaribaldiFest more things happened than I would have thought:

Friends dropped by from Anderson, SC.

Friend Tuck & wife Rose were in town for a reunion.

Grandson Luke’s Prom night (which takes most of a day now.)

It was all a lot of fun, and seeing everyone was great, but by bed time this morning at 2, I was beat.

It is hard to think of it all working out well, but with Sherry and Shirl’s help it did. I promise myself I won’t put a load of responsibilities on others again. In trying to arrange some parts of the ‘show’, I had to find and talk to Reba (coordinator).  It is impossible for me to hear in noise, but somehow I  try. She was very patient, but I still had to return once and enlist son Jack, to go back with me and interpret.

Honestly, I have these ‘great ideas’ but I have got to STOP listening to those ‘voices in my head’.

I am still beat, I have to be careful about this old body.  ahhaha

Tomorrow we head for the PO to apply for passports for the sons. Hope that goes well.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and all the good comments on the last post of the Fest.

Jack I tell myself the same thing
I am getting older and remember
I can't do the things I use to do.
My mind thinks I am still young.
I was worn out also, then it was my volunteer day at Historic House.
I feel like I am sleep walking.
We will learn...hopefully..The
day was fun. The wind terrible.
But we had a good time. New learning experience.

That sounds like a hectic day you had. It's nice it was filled with a lot of old friends and help if you needed it.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy
on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more
often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
Great work!

You are always on the go! Take the time to chill out and relax.

It was a hectic day and I'm sure you loved it too but we all get tired.

Hugs to my favorite couple!

The last time I stayed up til midnight it nearly did me in! HOpe you get some rest. I find it a strange coincidence at grocery stores that people want to be in the exact same spot I'm in - in the aisleway. I'm always in someone's way. lol Ya'll have a great Monday.

I stay up late, but a 2 am bed time would beat me too. Prom night...that makes me feel so old.
