Decided not to go

With the price of gas being so high, and Diana's reactions far from predictable, we decided not to drive to Indiana Beach. Instead we hooked up the sprinkler and let her play on the trampoline with it. She had plenty of watery fun, we didn't drive an hour and then have to turn around and come home because she hated the crowds, and I was able to work on a client's website.

I think we made the right decision. She's going to be plenty stimulated with the California trip coming up on Monday, and if we'd made that drive today, it could have potentially put her in a mood disinclined to cooperate and tolerate any kind of crowd. Tomorrow, we'll read the books I got her about air travel, aimed at kids and reassuring them about what's going on.
