I hate this season of tribulation! I hate it! I hate it! I JUST FUCKING HATE IT! I'd be LYING if I said I didn't. I KNOW I am being tested and I feel like I've failed already! Lately life just feels like a season of decay and decline. It sucks when things we used to enjoy now feel like a major source of drama and frustration.
It was nice to see our pal DooDoo the clown yesterday at Toronto Springfest but the day had more than its fair share of angst. For one, Janette still feels yucky from her cold. And I found it hard to enjoy the day worrying about my sick husband at home.
We were thankful that this year there was free coffee available at the entrance. We had to go outside because when DooDoo's show was over there was this horrible emcee/entertainer who had this horrendously loud, high-pitched shrieky voice! She almost sounded ANGRY! I wouldn't be surprised if some children were TRAUMATIZED by the sound of that voice! I know we were and we're ADULTS!
and Janette ended up having a meltdown because when she went to the coat check, the lady who worked there was LOUDLY CRACKING GUM!!! >
Then I had the Ultimate Humiliation when we went to ride the carousel. I chose a second-row horse with an outside row horse next to me that looked low enough for Janette to get on and this guy swooped in and took it before she could. So I tried to change horses so I could be on one next to her but I had to fight tooth and nail to get on. I've never struggled so hard in my life! It was so embarrassing! I'm glad nobody chastised me for swearing or I REALLY would have gone BALLISTIC! It was like something out of a nightmare. At least someone was able to help push me up into the saddle. Nobody shamed me or made fun of me or told me I shouldn't be riding the carousel, or worst of all that I'm too fat for this! But I'm afraid my carousel riding days may be over. SOMEBODY PLEASE KILL ME NOW!
After our ride Janette went to fill her water bottle and I had such a horrendous dry coughing fit I was afraid I'd throw up. We then decided it was time to leave.
At least we got to see DooDoo one more time before we left and we tried to get somebody to take a picture of the three of us together but they must have pushed the wrong button because the picture didn't exist when I uploaded them.
It was still early so we made it to the movie theatre in time for the 3:40 showing of "Wonderpark". It was good but I had trouble enjoying it because we had a minor altercation shortly after we arrived. We had to change seats because a family with a baby showed up and even though I wasn't that loud, the mother made a remark about my comment. The whole incident made me feel so embarrassed and humiliated that I couldn't really lose myself in the movie!
Actually there were TWO mothers with babies there but both of them were REALLY GOOD about removing them the moment they started to whimper! I half expected the one who was snarly with me to STAY and let it scream out of spite. However, that family took FOREVER to leave when the movie was over. I'm glad Janette and I were able to quickly gather our stuff and hurry out of there before they did and immediately duck into Jack Astor's which was right next door to the theatre.
We ordered our usual; shrimp pasta for me and fish & chips for Janette. And I treated us. I had a bit of a scare because at first I accidentally read the bill upside-down! It was $66.66, NOT $99.99.
Lately I've been having to dig from my next egg to make ends meet! I want to believe that God will somehow make it up to me eventually.
I wish the KISS concert wasn't for at least another MONTH OR TWO instead of NEXT WEDNESDAY!
