Mid May we went to South Carolina. Totally fun trip. Totally bad luck. Heading home we wrecked our car. Note: We had just got our car back from the shop from an April accident. We have had our car for less than two years and it has been in four/five (one pretty minor) accidents. For two of these accidents, we weren't even in our car when it was hit. So, I blame it on the car – it just has bad luck. Also, in South Carolina our camera broke and I lost my favorite sunglasses surfing. Lesson learned: wear crap glasses when surfing and stop trying to save money by driving vs. flying.
Lastly, the month wrapped up with an announcement from Hershey that it intended to shut down the original Hershey chocolate factory at 19 Chocolate Ave, blocks from our house. The deal was approved today. Ah, so much for getting closer to the chocolate making. I think it’s sad. When you live in Hershey, there’s something so authentic about being outside and smelling chocolate.
But, it’s all good. Like my dad always says, 15% of life is waste. There’s nothing you can do about it and you might as well not get all worked up. He’s right. (Although I might still picket at the factory.)
Plus, how can I feel bad when I have this sweet little baby? I can’t.
