Sometimes time doesn’t really matter at all..

Today has just been one of those days.. you know, the one that make you wished you had just stayed in bed with the covers over your head.
It dawned bright and warm, perfect day. I thought that as I got up and walked the Bitty. Perfect day to be on vacation in Florida. It doesn’t matter if the art show yesterday failed to meet our expectations and doubts of whether or not someone liked our work or why that person didn’t buy the piece they claimed to love… it just didn’t matter because we were on vacation again! The tear down and leaving of the campground went well.
Good campground.. was close to the show, so we were able to base out of there and have air conditioning at night.
Anyway.. we started the day good. Stopped at Fort Meyers at Camping World. Got some breakfast at Bob Evans.. and felt like we were making good progress. Figured we would be at the campground in Cedar Keys around 4.
Never count your chickens before they hatch… because about an hour later the right back tired blew… we discovered we forgot the lug wrench. Seriously? Yep there is always something.. Thank heavens we have Good Sam’s Roadside Assistance. It only to about an hour and a half to get help.. thank goodness we had a jack because the repair guy showed up with a small 2 1/2 ton one and thought it would work. Sometimes I wonder..
Stopped at an RV place in Venice where we had ordered parts for the awning when we were there 3 weeks ago, but due to the yuck weather up north didn’t come in until a week ago. They gave us the name of a tire place on our way that we stopped at and got the tire repaired, put back on and tucked the spare back under the camper in the holder Scot made. So now 3 1/2 hours behind schedule we took off down the road thinking all way good.. until we hit Tampa traffic and construction. At some point, I think you just give up.. give in.. and acknowledge that time is against you. I’m just happy we weren’t on any hard time schedule.. no show to be at and no have-toos… Because we are on vacation again. As we pulled into the campground in Cedar Keys at 7:49pm.. I’m laid back and relax.. because in reality time really didn’t matter at all.
