1. Yesterday I drove through seven different counties (Mathews, Gloucester, King and Queen, York, James City, Middlesex and Lancaster at least once and in a few cases three times) all in one day to accommodate my paying job plus my children's activities.
My blog friend Meg recently dedicated a post to her very lengthy list of activities and responsibilities, and it definitely struck a chord. Yesterday was one of those days, although to keep everything in perspective it was all good--very good--just very frenetic. Frantically frenetic, to be redundant for effect.
2. This weekend is the Guinea Jubilee.
Folks, if you don't know about Guinea, in neighboring Gloucester County, click here for some background. The Jubilee is not to be missed. Except that I have missed it, every single year of its existence. And for this I am truly sorry, honestly.
I'd give my eye tooth to attend the Guinea Jubilee, but I'm sure as heck not going by myself, and nobody has ever invited me to go, plus I think we have a soccer game or some such, but in the future if anyone wants to go just let me know and I'm there.
(Insert sounds of multiple sirens going off-- it's the Grammar Police! They are writing me a ticket for the World's Worst/Longest Run-On Sentence. This is all due to the day I had which was conducive to utter exhaustion rather than logical, coherent thoughts and cogent, succinct statements.)
3. According to the Schedule of Events at the Guinea Jubilee, we can expect the following to happen tomorrow night:
Friday 3-10 pm
|3:00 pm||Arts & Crafts and food booths open||Festival Grounds|
|7:00 pm||Entertainment: Crazy X Band||Main Stage|
|10:00 pm||Bubba Takes Darlin Home|
In other words, after the crazy band plays and darkness falls, you'd better get yourself on home, darlin'. Pronto.
No offense intended to Guineamen, Bubbas or Darlin's. Honestly.
Now it's your turn. Please share three or more things on any topic you want, regardless of its connection to a bubba, a darlin' or to Guinea.
