MY DAY: Thursday is at an end

I worked a full day at The Park and had the best time all day. From the minute I set foot on The Park’s campus and until I left at the end of the day, there was just an electrifying feeling of excitement.

We had Guests visiting us from Colorado, Maine, Pennsylvania, San Diego, Washington, Vermont, Michigan, Santa Fe, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Indiana, Chicago, and Cynthiana, Kentucky – the second set of Guests in several weeks. We also had a gentleman from France, a lady from Sweden, and three men from Dublin, Ireland. It’s enough to make me want to belt out several rounds of “It’s A Small World!”

There was a group of panelists from the Erma Bombeck Writers Conference and they were lovely. In fact, the one writer requested I share my Erma Bombeck stories with her for the Erma Bombeck website. I promised I’d have her a story before they left The Park. Ninety minutes and eight long legal pad pages later, I handed her my story.

Almost every full day, I eat lunch with Deanna, more famously known as the school teacher in the pioneer school house. We laugh, discuss our families, growing up years, and Disney, and an array of topics. Deanna loves baking and often shares delicious baked goods. Plus, we both are devotees of all kinds of history which makes it fun.

I’m on No. 17, aimed southward toward The Haasienda. One of my Canine Crew team members let me know they had forgotten to let the pooches out at 2:30 PM. These things happen. I’m more concerned about their discomfort since they’re seniors and they last went out at 7:30 AM. I’m sure they’re miserable unless they’ve left deposits.

I return to The Park for the afternoon shifts on Friday and Saturday and hope to accomplish some household tasks and writing the next two mornings.

I am hoping I sleep as well as I did last night. I climbed into bed around 8:15 PM with the intent of reading. I woke at 11:00 PM and let the dogs out. I only woke once more during the night for a nature break. It was such a rejuvenating feeling to wake so refreshed and energized.

I arrived home to four happy dogs but anxious to potty before eating. All was well and there were no indoor accidents.

I am considering a Chinese buffet for dinner. I really don’t want to leave the dogs, again, and head out into the chilly weather, but I also want some good food that I’ve not prepared. I may even do Door Dash.

It’s 6:35 PM and my gears are running a bit slower and my eye lids are becoming a nuisance with the gradual weight added to them. It may be a Door Dash evening, after all.
