My name is Niki, and I'm an idiot. I have spoken before about the monthly charity crop i go to, run by my croppin' crony Anne, that is the third Saturday of every month. This morning i got up early and spent a few hours going through my supplies to winnow out things to get rid of. There is a swap table at the crop where you can buy and sell things for ridiculously cheap. I gathered items, priced them, marked them, packed them and set off for Parkville at 11:00. Imagine my surprise when i arrived at the church and no one was there. As i was sitting in my car i started to realize that perhaps today is the SECOND Saturday of the month, not the third. What was really alarming, though, was that i really couldn't figure out what the date was - i was quite sure that it was August 16th. Then i started to convince myself that perhaps it wasn't even Saturday (i took yesterday off - more about that later). I drove home in a state of confusion; I honestly had no idea what day it was until i looked at my date book. I think that maybe, just maybe, I might be working too much and might need a vacation. BTW, in case you are confused today is Saturday, August 11, 2007.
