Heeey ! What the ??? . . . . . .
Do you ever look forward to a day and eagerly plan for it? Seriously, I mean, you get up early and you even have lists. You can feel the anticipation building. And then . . .
Well, I've done it again. Not exactly a day late and a dollar short scenario . . . . this time I was early. Yeah, like a whole week early. But I was ready. Last night I went through my read list and then my wish list for authors and made another list of authors to look for at the County Library's annual sale. I had cash in my hand, comfy stand- in -line shoes on and a big empty canvas bag. They advertised over 65,000 books and I know quite a few had my name on them. Last time we came home with close to 100 books. Yes, we are crazy! Knowing that there is always a line, I left early and when I got to the auditorium, I had a sinking feeling. No cars in the parking lot, no people in line at the door. Oh, oh, now what? So I cruise past the sign and it boldly states ~ Library booksale Oct 2-6th. Hello, it's still September.
Hubby looked mighty surprised when I came home so soon with an empty bag. I reminded him of the Greek Festival we went to only to find it was the next week. But you can bet that next Tuesday I'll be more than ready for $3 a bag day! After all, I've even got my list ready. Sheeesh! At least I got to the post office and mailed off The Year of the Flood to Jemima, the contest winner.
Does anyone else ever do this or is it just me?And what did you do today? Anything exciting?
