One thing I definitely wanted to do before I started my new job was go roller skating with Grace and a friend. I really wanted to go during the week, but her friend next door had summer camps, etc., that she was attending. It left the weekend to go. Yesterday, I heard not a peep from either of them about going, and that was OK because I had to wait around for the cable guy to come. And the evening was occupied with Mitchell and yet another Woodstock gathering.
Today the skating rink is open from 2-7, but it turns out her friend has vacation Bible school from 3-5. Nice. Grace tried calling other people, but couldn’t make it work. But when I proposed we go another time, she went nutter butters. She kept saying she doesn’t want to go with a friend, it will be worse, etc., etc. I wasn’t buying it. Once something gets on Grace’s radar, you will have a very hard time prying it off. I wanted to go roller skating too, but it just didn’t happen like I thought it would. You learn and move on. I think we are going to go see a dollar movie instead. Let’s hope it’s not sold out!
