A day off
I am off work today and glad of it. It wasn't a bad week at work but I have much to do and am running out of time to do it.
I will sleep until around 2:30 and then get some shopping done. Hopefully they will call to say they got the hitch and can install it. They we have to get a adapter for our bike rack. I need to get food on hand for Zoey and Chester. Need to get some energy gel for riding. Wash and iron some clothes, clean the house, give detailed instructions to both kids plus emergency numbers where they can reach us.
Clean out the van, clean out the fridge. Plan a menu. Etc..... etc.... I want to get some pepper spray as they have had some mountain lions around. Don't want them chasing me on my bike but that should would motivating me to get up that hill, LOL.
Sounds like a awful amount of work for a vacation. It also doesn't look like my camera parts will be by then, sigh. I want to go to the library and get a good book to read and some good wine to sit out and stare at the stars with the man I love.
The last time I was at the Black Hills was with my in-laws. It was our last trip. My father in law was already sick and didn't live much longer. I wish they were going with us again as we had so much fun and I miss them.
Well, I am drifting here. Time to get to bed. 2 more nights of work to go. I just might make it.
