So Joey's Grandma is in town and she spent last weekend in Rockford with her sister. They invited me to go with them to a craft fair on Saturday. We decided it would be much easier for me to just drive over and spend the night Friday so I wouldn't have to wake up super early and make the one hour drive in the morning.
I am the biggest chicken. I can not watch scary movies. The ones I have watched in the past haunt me. Halloween time is my enemy. So, I pack my stuff and get in the car. I realized almost right away that this was going to be a bad idea. Between here and there are just country roads. There are barely any street lights to guide me, just lots of creepy corn fields, disheveled old barns, miles and miles of darkness, and little cry baby me.
Nothing can scare you more than your own mind. I have this giant fear that I will be driving and someone impersonating an officer will pull me over and I'll never be seen again. Perhaps I need therapy? I've never been pulled over but I can just see it now... I'll get pulled over one dark and scary night by a legitimate officer just wanting to give me a nice little ticket and he will find me in my seat. I will have died of fright of course...
I just kept praying please don't get a flat tire. Please don't break down. And this is why I don't watch scary movies...every scary scene comes rushing back to me. I kept making sure the door was locked and picking at my nails. The more I'm reading this as I write it the more I think I DO need therapy!
Of course I did arrive safely. I'm sure the chances of a masked murderer waiting out there for me are pretty slim...but it's still possible. Because I arrived alive and with all of my limbs intact I was able to go to the craft fair =)
It was a lot of fun even though it was cold and rainy. They had so many cute things. I bought some Christmas presents. I wish I could share them with you because I love them so much but I can't because then my family would see them =/
They had lots of delicious food! We didn't actually eat any of this delicious food because the only place to sit was outside...in the rain. We enjoyed smelling it though lol.
"almost" dying was worth it....
