Well, I think we've done a pretty good job of making sure everyone we encountered was left equally disappointed. This is actually a good thing. We managed not to really disappoint anyone...well, I managed to disappoint myself pretty good by picking a fight with Rob. And, some of the really mean things I said probably left him feeling pretty disappointed with me. But, I left everybody else with just a general disappointment.
My parents were disappointed they didn't get enough time with me. Our friends were disappointed they didn't get enough time with us. My Aunt was disappointed I didn't let my daughter spend a whole day of our family vacation with her. The auction house and the antique shops were disappointed they didn't get much of my money.
Ya' know. There was one person who wasn't disappointed with me this weekend. The hotel maid got a nice tip. She had two days of cleaning up after us to do, and she deserved it.
There's just not enough time to do more than one thing in a single trip and we tried to pack it in like Chevy Chase in the first vacation movie. But, we didn't end with his level of disaster. I think my little group had a pretty good time.
But, ya know, the dog behaved and the kid behaved and Rob and I took a walk in the park behind the hotel and I did a lot of apologizing. I have a new medicine cabinet, and I have a new sewing machine, and tomorrow we go back to our real lives. I guess I did actually squeeze all the damn fun there was out of this weekend trip.
Y'all take care. If you're back at work tomorrow...well, you won't have to worry about that bright red ford truck passing you at half the speed of light.
