After years of saying I would go and I wanted to go, I finally went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It was a beautiful day! Perfect for an outdoor event.
However, the night before, Swipey didn't want to sleep before 1 am and I had to wake up at 5:30 to get the family in a he car for the 3 hour drive. My dearest husband kindly let me sleep in, so we didn't get there until after 11.
We saw many sheep, a pair of alpaca, herding dogs, and lots of yarn. And there was my problem. It was too much for my tired mind to comprehend and too big of a location for me to drag two little ones who were both due a nap. I also suffer from major, self-induced guilt with all things and felt I was inconvencing my family by shopping... So I didn't buy any yarn.
Haha! Oh fail -_-;
Next time I visit, I'm going to map out vendors and possibly stay the night with local friends. Next year, I will be victorious!
