Today was a slow day. Kylee had some activities at the local art museum, a day camp sort of thing, and Connie needed to study, so I went to PetSmart for some treats for the kids that I can get only there. I needed some Super Glue, so I ran into a K-Mart that was next door to the pet store, and had a ridiculous experience there (couldn't find the glue, no employees to be found on the floor, the ones I met didn't make eye contact and one even turned down an aisle as if to avoid me!!, took the manager 12 minutes to come to the service desk when I asked to talk with her, etc.). I got one of those cash register tickets that asked me to take an online survey about my service in the store. I did. It was not favorable. Do you think anyone in the K-Mart Corp. had a clue about why they are going under? Sheesh.
I met Connie for lunch. Greek food, one of my favorites. Yum!! I had my favorite, gyro sandwich and a Greek salad. Double YUM!!! We had a nice visit, then she went to pick Kylee up and came to get me so we could go to get ... Coldstone Creamery ice cream. Oh, yum, again!! Then we did a little shopping at Borders (I got some books on CD for the trip home), and Target (just a couple small items for the trip) and then home for dinner. When Scott got home, he did some chicken on the grill that was outstanding and Connie made couscous to go with it.
Tonight we watched a movie, For the Love of the Game with Kevin Costner (what's not to like about any movie with K.C.?), and now I'm getting ready for bed. Gotta get some sleep.
It is time to go home. I will be packing up and heading southwest again in the morning. I hope to get away early enough to make it in one drive again. Past a certain point (Santa Rosa, NM), I will be pretty well committed to finish, because there is no place to stop and get a room, no place to pull off the road in a rest stop, nothing to do but get on down the road! That puts me just 140 miles from home, but at the end of the day AND the end of the trip, it may be the hardest of all to drive.
I won't be posting tomorrow, of course. Hope all is well with everyone, and I'll talk with you on the other end!! Don't forget ....
....Life is beautiful!!!
