In an excellent example of my complete inability to plan logistics, we’d made plans to go back to the Gunn Ranch the weekend after Memorial Day. What I didn’t realize when I made these plans was that this basically gave me one full day between travel days and no time to get ready. Not to mention the five days worth of work I had to get done in two. Whew!
So, when T arrived to pick me up from work on Thursday about half an hour later than scheduled, I was a bit frazzled and grumpy. Remembering the drive up to Winthrop, I was none too pleased to be late getting on the road. With all those twists and turns, we needed as much daylight as possible. But after I settled down a little bit, we had a nice drive. I even stopped for the boys favorite Taco Time (shudder) because that’s what a nice wife I am.
Luckily, it was still somewhat light out when we got to the house. (In fact it was really beautiful. Had I not had to pee, I would have taken a picture of the house at twilight.) We were greeted by champagne and cupcakes to celebrate my birthday, which is a pretty awesome way to conclude a road trip. After some hashing out of sleeping arrangements, the drinking and cupcake eating commenced. This is shaping up to be a great weekend!
