What a weekend. We spent much of it fighting traffic, and we didn’t get home until late last night.
Saturday we went out to Wizard’s mom to see an Uncle from out-of-state. We only get to see him once a decade, so we made it work, and it was an amazing visit.
On Sunday, Turbo had a great birthday! But due to our city being completely overwhelmed by folks coming to see the poppies, we had to move the party to Middle Son’s house. Middle Son and his wife were awesome about it, we all pulled together and it worked out. Turbo had a very happy birthday! He got a lot of gifts, but he spent most of the time playing in the wrapping paper, and later, with a cup and spoon Typical, LOL!!!
But…after what we witnessed this weekend, I’m fear for the survival of the human race. Idiots were stopping on the freaking freeway, and walked down the side of it with their little kids to see the poppies. Our city is gridlocked, they’ve been snake bites and accidents, a city employee was hit by a car, and the driver took off. I know a lot more happened but I haven’t had time to check the news on my sites. I’m not exaggerating this, it was terrible, extremely dangerous and truly makes me doubt that common sense even exists any longer. The city posted on social media that all their resources were exhausted and the situation was out of control. Of course they’ve reached out to other resources (police, etc) to help, but we’re talking about 50 thousand people swarming a small city.
Wizard and I are exhausted, and tomorrow morning we have to get up early to go back out-of-town to a dentist appointment, which means back into that poppy gridlock. Hopefully it won’t be as bad as the weekend, or the normally 30 minute drive one way will take up to 2 hours.
Oh, one other good thing, we took Maggie with us to James’s birthday. It’s the first time we got Maggie, and Middle Son’s big dog, Jett together. They did great! Maggie was a very good girl, and Jett’s a totally cool dude who loves all dogs.
How was your weekend?
