Most of you may remember parts of this post from around the same time last year. 

Well, my sisters once again scored tickets to the NASCAR race! So, I thought share some of that post from last year with you today. 


I hope today finds you all happy and healthy.
I know it's soon after the last, but today is another off topic day. 

About 5 years (NOTE from 2022 Lisa . . . 6 years) ago, I, Lisa A Kelley, who spent most of my life sticking my nose up to it, became a NASCAR fan. 
When you live in Dover, Delaware and the small towns surrounding, the words "the races are in town this weekend" can fill you with dread. As a local living close to Dover Downs aka . . . 

 . . . getting around town on race weekend can be a nightmare for locals. There are literally areas of town we avoid. The traffic is just too crazy. 

What? Oh yeah . . . I digress. 
I now love NASCAR and never miss a race on TV. 

As great luck will have it, my sister Darlene won two tickets for today's big race (NOTE from 2022 Lisa . . . again)! I'll be dropping her and my sister Tammie off at Miles the Monster.

If you want an idea how big Miles is, those are the bleachers behind him. Miles stands 46 feet tall!

(NOTE from Lisa 2022 . . . A lot of the people in Dover were very unhappy when Miles was constructed. But I love him! I mean, the Dover racetrack is called The Monster Mile.)

If I love the races so much, why am I not going? 
A couple of reasons that I won't bore you with. But I'm okay with it. And, I'm excited for Tammie. She loves NASCAR. She's the one who got me into it. Darlene entered to win the tickets for Tam to have the chance to go. And Darlene, well she won't admit it, but she likes it too.

After I drop my sisters off, I will be coming home, putting on my comfy clothes, and watching the races from my happy place.
If I'm completely honest about it, at some point, it may look more like . . . 

NOTE from 2022 Lisa . . . while I'm watching, if not dozing, I'll be working on my eBay and listing items like . . .

 . . . and hopefully get what pieces listed that I want to for that day. 

Then, and most importantly, to my sisters that is, I wait for them to call me for their ride home, and it's off to pick up the weary race goers and hear all the details of their experience. 

How are you spending your Sunday?
I want to hear all about it!

  2. Today was the last day to "get 'r' done" before a short trip. Whew, I forgot how much work was involved in going somewhere - especially with a 17 1/2 year old furbaby. :) Here it is almost 9 p.m. and I think I'm about done. So my Sunday has been a BUSY one!
