The above quote is probably true as long as you remember that, in the end, it is just a game. Can be hard to do when you are super competitive but learning to just let things go is always best.
We had a very busy Saturday. Our zoo occasionally does special previews for members and there was one on Saturday. The down side was having to wake up much earlier than we normally would. But the event was fun and a lot of the animals were more active early in the day so it was a good time.
In the late afternoon, we went to another festival put on as a fund raiser for a local church. This was the 25th year they’ve been doing this. And festivals don’t have to be big things to be fun. There is something nice about events like this because the people putting in on are very welcoming and everyone is kind of chill.
As far as deserts go, I’m mostly a chocolate person but I do love the Middle Eastern type of sweet things. Lots of honey and nuts and flaky pastry. Plus you have to admire the effort that goes into it.
Was he really just saying that we are all “Working for the Weekend”. Loverboy and Marcus Cicero on the same page.
Since it is now less than a week away, my calendar popped up a reminder for my upcoming hotel reservation. The Showcase I’m going to isn’t that far away but I did the “drive back after the event was over” once and decided it wasn’t a good idea. Plus, they had a discounted rate so I’m staying a couple of nights.
I don’t know why but upcoming travel kind of triggers some anxiety in me. Part of it is nerves about the dancing but the other part is just putting all the pieces together. I’ve got notes on things to buy on Saturday before we leave and I’m already thinking about what all I need to bring. Like I’m pre-worrying about forgetting something important.
Then I wonder if I should get a haircut before I go and if I should take some shirts to the dry cleaners this week or just wait and drop a big load with them next week.
None of these are big major decisions but I guess it is just having to think about all this because I’m not naturally a planner. So forcing me to have to make lists and thing about things I don’t normally think seems more stressful than it should be. I’ll be fine once I get there. It is the getting there that is the problem.
The good news is I know I don’t have all the answers.
Oh and I’m thinking I’ll probably start skipping the COVID posts unless something dramatic changes in the data. At some point, I’m just going to have to stop compiling the data because it isn’t really all that useful at this point.
That’s all I’ve got for now.
