Friday, April 6, 2018 – First Day of Hoosier Horse Fair

Lola woke me up at 4:00 in the morning scratching at the door, which she never does unless she's desperate, so I had to get up, dressed and take her for a walk out in the freezing cold. Naturally, I couldn't get to sleep again after that, so I tossed and turned until the alarm went off. Got Hubby up and moved to the dialysis center again, got him hooked up to his dialysis machine, and still managed to make it back to the fairgrounds before it opened at 8:00 a.m. It was fairly slow for the first few hours, as expected, and I had to slip out just before 10 to pick up Hubby (and take him off the machine with supervision), back before 10:45, just as the crowds started coming in. I did a presentation at 2:00, sold a few books throughout the day, talked to a lot of folks, and generally had a good day, though tiring. The building we're in is the coldest of them all, people keep opening and closing the overhead doors, which empties every bit of heat out in just a few seconds. Wrapped up in parkas and wool hats we did our best to stay warm, but I still had a sore throat by the end of the day. Once we closed up when the crowds were gone, and headed back to the trailer, only to find that Lola had had several bouts of diarrhea during the day, so I had an hour of cleanup to do before we could sit down and eat the salads we bought at the fair. A short evening, as we were both exhausted, hoping for a great night sleep, at last!
