Feeling Dumber than Dumb
Saturday, July 30, 2011
Well, it's a beautiful day for a Spark Rally! And I'm supposed to be there, at Green Hill Park in Worcester. Note to self: Even if you think you know the way, GET DIRECTIONS!! I can get lost in a paper bag.... proved it today!
I told DH where the rally was, and he said, "Oh, that's easy! " and proceeded to tell me how to get there. I remembered going by the park, so headed happily off. Of course, being at camp without a computer, I didn't check. Turns out, we knew how to get to ELM Park, not Green Hill. Now, I have a cell phone, but it's a dumb one (like it's owner), not a smartphone. So I called DH & he sent me to the OTHER side of Worcester, near the hospital. Well, I found Quinsigamon State Park, but not Green Hill. At this point, I would usually ask someone who KNOWS how to get there, but since I was late getting going (a whole 'nother story), and had to leave to get back to camp by mid-afternoon, and I was MAD at myself, I headed back to Fitchburg.
My NJ kids & grandkids are due in to camp this afternoon, so couldn't have stayed at the rally too long. As soon as I finish beating myself up for my foolishness and finish a load of laundry, I'm heading back to camp in hopes of getting there before my crew arrives. Ahh, for a GPS and the brains to use it!!!
