I wanted to get a post in here cuz I just came in the door from being at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, for the last two days and I get a call from work. “Can you pleeeeeeze work tomorrow?” Sigh. I said Yeah…and that means I will be working the next nine days.
But, you know what? I don’t have a child battling cancer. And I am not in chronic pain. (a friend had back surgery and it didn’t alleviate her agony one bit, so will be having more surgery soon. It hurts to watch her suffer). So I may be complaining, but I’m not really complaining, ya know?
Eeeeeeeeeeeegads. I went out twice since we got home, once to feed chickengoats and koi and collect eggs..and just now to take pics of Sailor Babo in the Butterfly bushes and the peach tree. And both times I got attacked by teensy mosquitoes. I’m itching all over!!! Still not complaining, you realize! 😉
Cedar point was so much fun…we got to ride almost everything we really wanted to hit. Oh crap, I hit “post” when I wanted to add pics.
Top Thrill Dragster was my favorite. Accelerates to 125 mph in less than 4 seconds…goes up over 400 feet and back down. That’s it. Ride over in 18 seconds. But what a thrill! Waiting 45 minutes in the 90 degree sun was not fun, though. Bleah!
We went on the Magnum XL a couple of times because the wait was shorter. Didn’t make it onto the Millenium Force…hour and a half wait…no thanks!
We went on the Power Tower a few times. Almost no wait for that guy!
That one gives me the heebie jeebies. On two of the towers you sit at the bottom and are shot up about 300 feet. The creepiest one, though, slides you smoothly up to the top and you dangle there for many seconds getting more and more scared until it finally shoots you DOWN some 280 feet. Lol. That anticipation is a killer.
So, in spite of it being the worst summer ever for work, I have managed to see U2 in concert. Tim McGraw in concert. (Not a fan, but I like going with my friends and drinking beer), went up to the lake three times, went to the Ann Arbor Art Fair and the Jimmy Buffett parking lot party. My summer has been a hot, humid, itchy happy success!
