Today is my regular every two-week trip to "town" to get supplies, etc.

I left at 9:15 a.m. and drove the almost 30 miles to my destination. Had to first meet with a new customer about restoring some oak dining chairs. Picked up two chairs and then headed on to my day of in-and-out of the car.

Had a bit of a respite when I visited with and had lunch with a good friend. We went to a new restaurant and had a wonderful lunch. Browsed antiques shops and boutiques on the way back to his jewelry store. The weather was postcard perfect so it was a nice walk back to his store.

When it was all said and done, I drove 88 miles, made 23 stops and arrived home at 6 p.m. Looooong day. Glad it's only every two weeks.

Thank goodness Buck cooks dinner on these days.

How do you get Lego girl to walk 2 miles? Fisher can do it but I'm not sure he would if I wanted him to.

She and Melon boy get to cheat, we bring the wagon. 8 yr old rides his bike.
All we need to complete the ensemble (sp?) is clown suits and a teeny car!

today.... lets see... see yesterdays plans and take away the lunch with friends and replace it with a bus ride into the Golden zone for some window shopping. Every thing else will be pretty much the same.

Your schedule sounds more fun than mine. Mine is to avoid going anywhere that might tempt me to spend money because pay day isn't until tomorrow. That pretty much means I'm staying home. So I will pitter around the house doing chores a pregnant woman shouldn't do to try and make the baby come, and then go for a maternal checkup at 3:45 to see if there is ANY progress. Then I'll take my accident prone child to get his stitches removed, cook some dinner, make some shakes...that sort of thing.

I woke up at 5AM, took a shower, got dressed for work, went to work at 6AM. 17 mile drive, got to work at 6:57AM. Now I'm at work, working. At 3PM I'll go home, and it'll take nearly another hour to make the 17 mile drive. Get home close to 4PM, make dinner for the wife, have dinner and watch some TV. Then I have to work on my research paper and look into apartments/townhomes/condos for when I have to move in July. Go to bed around 9PM and repeat tomorrow. Also throw in cleaning, dishes, etc. in any "spare time" I may have.

Not quite as much fun as some of you here! It's going to be a very hectic couple of years until I finish my degree...and then I'm going to be stupid and get my MBA so add two more years onto the two(ish) years I have left right now.

But I'm not complaining...it'll all be worth it. In five years, I'll be making a ton of money to support my wife*, saving up for college funds for any kids I'll have, retirement, etc.; I'll most likely be a Project Manager by then, I'll be done with all of my school (well...I do want to get my degree in mechanical engineering eventually), and I may even be a daddy at that point! Hard work now pays off later. And my wife and I do make time for hobbies or going out together a few times every month.

* - Note, funds will also be used to support my insanely expensive hobbies. ;)

Last day in Mexico.. I head home tomorrow... this is making me grumpy! LOL.

I really don't have a plan for today, I finished most of my packing last night. I'm leaving almost everything I brought here so I just have one back pack to carry on the plane.

I'll be very lazy today... as soon as the sun is up I'll head out to the beach for a long walk and then laze and drink the rest of the day away.
