I am a party pooper...

I am not much on planned gatherings. It doesn't mean that I am asocial. I just like spontaneity. I like to do things on the spur of the moment that way things are casual and carefree. I don't even like birthday parties that are planned for me even when I PICK where the party is going to be. I'd much rather call everyone on a day near my birthday and say, "Hey, let's go get Chinese (or something)" and then just go do it with out planning and having to DREAD being someplace at an appointed time. That is like a trip to the doctor or something you HAVE to be somewhere SPECIFIC at a PREDETERMINED time. BAH!

Now tomorrow is Easter Sunday, we are going to the river, one of my favorite places in the whole world. I like everyone who is going to be there. I want to see them. I want to spend time with them but I don't want to have to do it on a certain day at a certain time. I don't know why I am such a party pooper. I didn't used to be like this. I used to like to PLAN outings and events. I liked the planning process, getting everything just thus and so. It was great fun for me but now I dread it like a root canal. I think I am just an old fart, that's what I think. Andy Rooney doesn't have ANYTHING in the curmudgeon stakes on me. I win the prize hands down although my eyebrows aren't just quite right.

When I GET to the river and see everyone and things start happening I will have a GREAT time. I always do. I just HATE the appointed time and place thing. I am GLAD that when I get going and in the swing of things that I enjoy myself, I just don't understand all the DREAD that happens ahead of time. My mom thinks I am weird. She is probably right. I don't know anyone else who DISLIKES planned outings as much as I do. Well, maybe Ebenezer Scrooge in his middle years but I really don't like the comparison. HUMPH!

Tomorrow as a special surprise my mom is making HOMEMADE BLUEBERRY ICE CREAM!!!! That is one of my FAVORITE foods in the whole world and yet, I am dragging my feet about getting my fanny in gear and going. What is wrong with me???? Like I said at the beginning I am a party pooper.

Sigh!

Ciao!

Aw...sorry it's causing you so much angst, Ardee-ann. :-( I've been stressed for the last week because my MIL plans at the very last minute, so I had no idea when we were supposed to be there tomorrow, and I have a ton of other things I want to do. We didn't find out the time until 9:30 tonight...drives me nuts that she can't plan things ahead so *I* can plan my schedule too.

But take heart! I know plenty of people who prefer to be spontaneous like you do, so I'm sure you're not alone. Maybe if you just don't worry so much about the time, and focus on that wonderful ice cream, that will be enough to get you there. Then you'll have fun, like you say. :-)

Happy Easter to you!

to Jamie...
Well, I am sorry your MIL is not a planner because I KNOW that you are one. I bet that does drive you up the wall. Bless your heart.

BTW, I was focused on the ice cream and the ice cream maker didn't work right so we didn't have it. Oh my hopes were dashed and mom was out of way too much money. The ingredients are expensive.

All in all it did turn out to be a "rawther" interesting day!

Hugs,

Ardee-ann

I can get the "I don't know if I really want to go" thing when it comes to parties, but my favorite ice cream of all time would definitely be a plus. (I think your mom is trying to tempt you!) But if you really want me to show up anywhere, make sure we're going to the coast. I lovelovelove the ocean. :)

The ocean...
If I ever get to the left coast I will take you with me. :) Things worked out okay today. That trip back and forth to the cabin sure takes its toll on me though. When did I get so old. I don't know!

Hope you had a good day.

Re: The ocean...
Trips in general take a lot out of me. There's all that recovery time afterwards.

I'm sorry you didn't get to have your ice cream. There's nothing like homemade ice cream! I had some homemade peach ice cream once in a little town called Crocket and it was to die for. I'm not even a fan of peaches in ice cream. But YUM!

My day was OK as days go. Nothing much happened.
