We plan a vacation every year, but this year, the family business is just steps away from closing, so we are staying in town and taking some day trips. I’m sort of blue about the whole thing. The good news, is that the Otter Pup has been left alone (twice now), outside of her crate and she seems to be okay with it.
This means that we can take slightly longer day trips. She just sits in the sun and waits for us to get back.
What trips do we have planned? Well, some museums (hopefully), a couple of beach trips and maybe we’ll spend some time in Santa Barbara, Ventura or Ojai. I love Ojai. I know The Hub has plans to take The Girl and Boy to Six Flags. I may or may not go on that trip. I am not a fan of our Six Flags since they stopped doing business with The Hub’s company and decided to go overseas. Don’t even get me going on that.
As for today, I just got back from taking The Girl shopping for back-to-school stuff. She is a spender! She has very rich tastes for my modest budget.We shopped with coupons and got 40% off where we could but a t-shirt does not cost $36!!! Please! I won’t mention the store but I HATE when stores mark-up prices and then take them down to make it look like you are getting a good bargain.
I guess I am a bit touchy today. I apologize. I am going to mix-up an Arnold Palmer and take a chill-pill while reading Before I Fall (which is absolutely riveting!) Just what I need to brighten this blue mood of mine.
BTW, Carmageddon was no big deal. In fact, the freeway opened a day before it was supposed to. People said it was kind of nice because it forced them to stay at home and relax. Isn’t that sad? That we need a major freeway to close to keep us at home?
Anyway, happy Sunday to you!
