Why I should always just stay home

Today was supposed to be a fun family day at the safari park. But, of course, things didn't go as planned. I should have just stayed at home, or stayed in bed. Why?

1. Road work. Our 45 minute drive turned into 2 hours when traffic came to a stand still on the interstate-for 8 miles. Only to find road crews work on a 10 feet section of road.

2. Closed: Yep, that's the sign we found when we arrived at the park. Cue GM's tears here. Somehow I mis-read the website. I wish I could blame it on the hubby, but this time, it was all my planning.

3. Cattle Shoots. Do ya'll know what I'm talking about? Maybe not, since it seems like such a redneck term. But it's those concrete barriers alongside the highways. I hate them with a passion. And after driving through them, and nearly having an anxiety attack, I was sick the rest of the afternoon.

Not a good day...

but the question is..did you have a good time?

Ick! That does not sound like a fun outing at all. Plan again and hopefully you will have a good trip next time.

I know it is terrible going through it, but in a few weeks you should be able to laugh about it....right?

I hope your day got better!

Ack, hope your day got better, or even better that today is 10 times better than this one!
