We are having Octoberfest in our little town tomorrow. There will be craft booths, food booths, sidewalk sales, garage sales, a quilt show, beer garden, and a chili cook-off . About 3 weeks ago, my friend called and said that for the first time in several years she would be off work this weekend and she wanted us to go to all the things together. She just kept saying, "Now don't make any other plans cuz I want us to spend the day together! " We've talked to each other several times in the 3 weeks and she always makes that same comment. Then I told my youngest daughter about it and she said she was going to come over too. I've been really excited because I don't go out and do things with people very often, other than going to the grandsons ballgames. So I'm all pumped up just waiting for tomorrow to get here. Well...first my girlfriend calls and says her grandkids want to come and stay with her this weekend, so she's not going to Octoberfest because she doesn't want to have to take all 4 of them with us. They live 30 miles away and can come and stay anytime. Why couldn't she tell them she had plans and have them come next weekend? Especially since it was her idea to start with? Or wait and have them come tomorrow evening instead of tonight? I am disappointed, but knew that my daughter and I would still have a lot of fun , so no big deal. Well....then I was chatting on the computer with my daughter a little while ago, and she said she's not coming either!! She said it is supposed to be 36 degrees tomorrow and that's too cold to be out going to that stuff!! Now I know I sound like a whiney little kid, but what the heck!! I know that I can go to all the things by myself and that I will see tons of people that I know, but you all know how much more fun it is to go to things like that with someone else!! I was totally looking forward to a day out with the girls. I am super disappointed, but I'm just gonna put on my big girl panties and go by myself and have fun anyway!! Thanks for letting me whine!
