I hope you read my little rant about equality as what it was... kind of a puzzle piece that the way you worded it, clicked into place. It wasn't a rant at you, which I realized after it might look like. lol.
Well, she had booked the time off because I WAS supposed to be going to Germany this week with hubby. But, then work changed the plan, and he's off to Houston instead. I was much less inclined to head there. So, rather than sit at home bored for her week off (because my dad is still working), and me lonely and bored here, we decided she should just come here anyway. It helps that she's a neat freak and loves to cook. lol. I like that I can almost guarantee I'll get spoiled.
Yeah, my Grandma in Enderby said it's dry there too. They like walking but even they're praying for snow for the farmers' sakes. The kids and I are doing good here... hubby's away on a trip right now though, which sucks. But, my mom is coming up to visit while he's gone, which makes me happy. A week of gal time can be such a nice thing. But, of course, I seem to be getting sick. lol.
Hi, FG. Sorry I didn't get to your message til now. It's holiday time. We're visiting our youngest daughter, atm. lol We went and saw oldest first and found out she's pregnant. Going to be a granddad. So everything's awesome.
How are you doing?
Yeah, It can be a bit of a pain if the folks in charge sitting on their asses choose a bit of really difficult terrain to test people on, though.
lol we spend a lot more time outside when travelling, too. I think it has to do with comfort. Ground seems to be a lot harder when we go camping than it6 used to be.
5 k in 45 min... that sounds reasonable... you never know when the cat's gonna break down and you're going to have to get your ass out of there.
We're hoping to make the trek again next year... perhaps without the tenting so we can make it further faster. The kids loved Enderby so much that it's a definite 'must' for vacationing. We've never been outdoors so much as a family, even when we lived on an acreage! lol.
