Ahhh…. the best laid plans. After completing all my little errands yesterday around town, shopping for our trip to the cabin, loading the bikes on the rack, filling the cooler with all our refrigerator items, and 40 pounds of ice…. we had to cancel.
The plan was that I would get everything ready to go, Al would work in the office and prep to leave the business for the weekend, and we would meet back at the house early afternoon and hit the road. About 4:00 pm I sent a text to my husband seeing when we were leaving. He called me back and we had a snag in our plan. A dump truck we had purchased and had been waiting to be delivered was coming through Duluth on Saturday and would need to be picked up by us and brought to Brainerd. This piece of equipment is important to the current state job we are doing…so alas, we had to wave the white flag and change our plan.
I am not really too bummed…. yes for the cabin and for the relaxation but this has happened before and I have kind of learned to roll with the waves. 🙂 Instead we ate a late dinner at home, I watched a somewhat odd Lifetime movie and went to bed.
So plan B. I am hitting the gym this morning and then probably driving with Al to Duluth to get the truck. I have been bribed with lunch and a book store stop. I am still in need of a copy of The Color Purple so I am all about the book store stop. Maybe later I will take Chance to a movie or take a bike ride.
There’s a big bike ride in the area tomorrow that I have had my eye on. Tour of Saints is a ride I do almost every year and this year because of our cabin plans I didn’t sign up. I am watching the weather for tomorrow – chance of rain, but if it clears I may go do that ride…. maybe. 🙂
Here is the song in my head today…. it brings back memories of my best friend Traci in high school and road tripping to Cambridge Minnesota to see her family. We would be in her old mustang that we fondly called “Rustang” because of all the rust and this may have been the song we blared out of the speakers.
