Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival Midway

If I have any readers left, thanks. I bet you’ve been wonder what’s been up with me?

Well, I have been busy with life.  Trying to get mine in order.

My youngest sister got married at the beginning of October.  I was quite consumed with that.

This past weekend was the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival back home in Richmond Hill.  I had to go to it.  The Gin Blossoms were the headliners this year. It just felt like the crowd wasn’t into the band as much as they where for Little River Band and .38 Special.  I would have been a lot into more if I hadn’t been holding it in & wondering if a friend was going to come back in time for the concert.

I dread using port-a-potties.  It goes back to the OCD I had as a child. I still have OCD, but I can handle my obsessions and compulsions better than I could when I was 6.

I still had fun.  My friend, Melinda, brought a kid along.  The little girl’s mother is a friend of Melinda’s and couldn’t take the child.  I liked the kid.  I acted like a mother to her.  I rode the rides with her and treated her basically like my mother would have when I was that age.  Be firm, authoritative, but not treat her like a stupid little kid and make sure she had the time of her life. During the concert, Melinda took the girl for some more rides.  I was worried about them simply because my phone was dying.  I didn’t want to lose them.

Melinda & I have turned the Seafood Festival into our annual thing. This was the 3rd year we went together.  It’s local to Savannah & it’s a blast.  My siblings don’t like seafood and haven’t been interested in going.

After the show, I made a remark about maybe I should be a mother.  I’m just scare of taking that net step of being responsible for other people.  I help my father & siblings, but I don’t take care of the 24/7.  A husband & a baby would require that.  I guess I’m just scared of the next steps it seems like everyone else has taken in their lives.

I know I shouldn’t care or compare myself to others.  I should be happy and care for myself.  And Lord knows I try.

Now, to take the next step I want to take – purchasing a house.  I don’t need a husband or a kid to have a house of my own.
