It's been a stupid day.
I used my mom's car while she was on vacation, and when I was gonna fill up
the tank before returning it, I couldn't find the release button for the gas tank lid.
Myself and the gas station attendant spend 10 minutes scouring the car
before I remembered the manual and got it working. By then, I was running late.
We returned the car and drove on to pick some stuff up at my store
- only to realize that I had left my keys in the door of my parents house.
The round-trip added 45 minutes to an already hunger-struck plan.
Because of that, we decided to get burgers at a drive-through.
Then when we got home we noticed that they had screwed up our order...
Some of this (like forgetting the keys in the door) I blame on the fact
that I have been working 6 days a week the last few weeks.
I know that might not sound like much to some, but when you're
clinically depressed, working a full time job is hard enough as it is.
To top this off, I presented my Halloween plan for our town in front of
a shop-keepers meeting of 20 people the day before yesterday,
and realized that no-one was going to help me with the arrangements.
Everyone seems to love the idea, but getting help is apparently difficult.
The "single-handedly" thing is proving to be more true than expected...
Luckily, my mom's back home now, and she is usually up for helping out.
The main attractions are a Trick-or-Treating round and a pumpkin carving contest,
and by the looks of things, the two of us will have to pull off most of it on our own.
Aside from all this stupidness I am totally looking forward to
hosting Halloween in an otherwise very quiet and boring little town,
and I feel like I have most of it under control. I posted the fliers today,
and I hope many people will participate in the fun!
