Sigh of Relief

<sigh of relief>  Got one of the newly painted nightstands back to the house last night, and all of the drawers, so I only have the one other nightstand to bring back.  I can’t decide yet whether I like the way they look in the room – it’s really hard to gauge, since it’s sitting plop next to the still-brown headboard.  I think it’ll be good, though.

We also finished cleaning the bedroom, bathroom, and closet last night, so my list of ‘Things to Do Before We Leave’ is gradually shortening (although still includes cleaning stuff out of the fridge that will get nasty before we get back).  This year’s trip actually has not been nearly as difficult to prepare for as some have been in the past – even though things have kind of gotten down to the wire, I still don’t have an overwhelming sense of frantic haste (not like last year!).  It’s really odd to think that TBear has never been to Creation – last year would have been his first time, and it got cancelled two days before the event (after we’d already done all that frantic prep-work!) due to massive flooding at the event site.  There was another year (2003, I think) that they had trouble with flooding, but they were able to move the whole festival a couple of hours away to HersheyPark with less than two weeks notice, which was nothing short of miraculous.

We’ve been going to Hershey before the festival almost every year since then – if you drive down Main Street, the air really does smell like chocolate.  Then, of course, there are really fun rides at HersheyPark – that will be another first for TBear, who has never really been to an amusement park (barring Carowinds, which is kind of an ill-kempt little park).  He swears he will ride rides.  I’ll let you know.

Getting excited!  Now that the GMAT is over and the coast is clear, I’m actually starting to get excited!
