I meant that too.
I woke up this morning with a terrible headache...a kettle corn headache.
Yesterday was the last day for the TVA&I fair so Chuck and I decided to take Caden!
That exclamation point hurt my head.
We got there at 4:30, spent approximately 43 minutes finding a parking spot, went through $4300.00 on rides and won two 43 cent toys.
And I ate 43 pounds of kettle corn. Champ!
I attribute the headache to the golden corn-y goodness AND the fact that it was Latino day at the fair.
NOW hold on there a hot minute! I am NOT racist...I simply couldn't help but picture one of them driving my bobcat around on a flat tire...and the music gives me anxiety.
It really does.
I have a hard enough time with Christina Aguilera as is...but crank it up and put it in a different language and my heart starts beating like a racehorse.
The clinical name for my problem is
I can deal with tractors and farm equipment but put me in wal-mart or the mall for more than 3 hours and you will be carrying me out on a stretcher.
It's true...but it's bad.
Chuck always says "she's not a people person" when he really means "she doesn't like people"...
But I do!!!
I just get so tired of...talking....and stuff...and crowds...
I'm just thankful that the fair only comes around once a year.
This kind of fun is best in small doses.
Chuck and Caden rode the rides..not that I didn't want to partake but I thought they should ride together..
Plus someone had to watch the rickety things so I knew what to sue for..and I couldn't take my kettle corn.
I took a few pictures in the event disaster struck and someone found my purse..they would know who I was with...
...now what's the first thing you do when you get in the car?
Buckle up. That's right...
...OK now remember 10 and 2 then check your blind spots...
Caden loved the rides!
I think he really loved riding them with his dad more though..
I don't know how they keep these rides so well painted.
The color schemes are so trendy.
OH! Not only were the rides a-plenty, but the educational exhibits were mind numbing!
Giant swamp rats!
Chuck wouldn't let me go in because he didn't have time to deal with me crying.
He knows me so well.
After I threw a fit and he pried my arms from around the tent they rode more rides
Chuck's too cool for school..did I tell you that?
This one actually spun pretty fast and Caden was welcomed to the world of g-forces...
Needless to say he will be riding the big boy rides from now on:).
It will go down as a pretty dadgum great day!
I think that Caden had a wonderful time with his dad and he won a giant Shrek toy!
I look forward to
an entire year before the next fair and wonder if dropping my goldfish 6 times makes it less likely to live until then...
