Horrible Start to Weekend

Ok so let me tell you about my horrible start to my weekend.  My son is in Boy Scouts.  He was supposed to graduate to wolf status yesterday.  Now I hate camping, won't do it but hubby talked me going up for the day.  Now to me the day meant ok we had to be there at 9 so for me a day was until about 5 at latest.  I said ok I can do this....well I guess I was WRONG!

We got there at 9 set up camp and hubby forgot the bug spray so someone was nice enough to lend us some of theirs.  Then the kids did tug o war a few times. 
We hiked and I mean hiked to this field to play kickball and we were told don't stay under the trees as ticks are bad this year.  Sooo my younger son by now is whining he wants to go home.  I am right behind him on that so we walk back to camp.  It is hot tooo one of those days where you move and you sweat.
So we wait at camp for about an hour while they play kickball and basketball.  They come back we eat lunch then the kids run around.  I am bored silly have no connection for my phone so I read a book.  The kids were supposed to have a water gun fight and we wait and wait and wait, finally I ask hubby when are they doing the ceremony?  Didn't think to ask this in the morning.  He says 7 pm!  I say WHAT!  I am not staying til 7 are you crazy plus driving home 2 hours.  He said you are supposed to be relaxing.  I said how am I supposed to relax when I have to worry about ticks falling on me and big big bugs and I am hotter then the devil at the moment?  Oh and did I tell you the water gun fight was to be held where we played kickball?  The water was at camp but we were going to hike back up the hills to the place where the ticks were to squirt each other ummm NOT!
Sooo he says fine we will leave!  He packs everything up and kids are depressed because they wanted to go to the watergun fight and couldn't because daddy was having a hissy fit about leaving.  It was just an awful day and I will never go again.
I told my son I am sorry I messed things up but I just could not sit there anymore.  it was like pure torture.  I don't know how anyone would love to camp honestly.
BUT it gets better......
I have been calling the museum that held the art show where I sold a piece of art for Alice in Wonderland.  They were supposed to send me a check.  Well it never came...and guess what?  they are CLOSING forever as in no more by May 31st!  Sooo I call and no answer I think they are gone already........soooo going to call the curator at her home and see what is up and take them to small claims court......soooo that has been the wonderful start to my weekend.....whoohoo!  Sorry to gripe but just had to LOL

OK, it sounds absolutely hideous and I would have left too.
AND to not get paid! I'm in a similar situation, been consigning in a shop for a year - shop closed down. I WAS sent back my inventory that was still there, but they owe me over $100 and the accountant isn't returning my emails.
CRIPES!

Oh my goodness what a horrible start to holiday weekend!
Am praying you can get the money owed you for your piece. That is horrible if curator doesn't pay what she has already recv'd. Gracious!

Called curator never called back and it is basically gone and closed now. Found out a bunch of Dr.'s own it so how bad is that they can keep my money when they are dr's

Oh Sue, I went through that boy scout stuff when my boy was a youngster. I'm with you on that one. I wouldn't even think of doing it at this point in my life.
Ticks, yuk! I feel for ya hon.
