I am not a spontaneous person. I like the idea of spontaneity, but I like it planned. I know that doesn't make sense. Friday, my wonderful brother- in- law, Jesse, and his girlfriend Rachel took my kids at about 1pm. I took little Flora to the grocery, and got a big chunk of my shopping done. I still didn't have my own children, so I was looking forward to a relatively peaceful afternoon, until the little people came home.
Since Zach isn't tied down to regular hours, he asked if I wanted to go to the Indy Gun & Knife Show with him. I have been many times, and it's not an awful experience, so I said yes. We conned Jesse & Rachel into keeping the kids longer, and even putting them to bed!
We walked around the show, and Zach made a few purchases and I just enjoyed being a grown up. At one point, I went & bought a drink ($4.50 - WAAAAAAYYYYY too expensive)and wandered around by myself. It was a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would be. No little people, and the chances of running into somebody I knew were incredibly small. Then we got some dinner and went home, with the kids already on bed!
It was a wonderful evening and I am actually looking forward to the next show, because I want to go again! And try some different kinds of jerky!
