Actually my time of from work started yesterday. Had a lot of little odds and ends to do to get ready to go camping today, which is my real vacation. My 2 daughters and their families were gone for the day up into the mountains here at the Cliff Dwellings. It's about 2 hours from here. So it was just me and my 26 year old son, who was off work yesterday but he's very quiet. So the house was so peaceful and I enjoyed it so very much! They were gone from about 9 until about 6:30. It was so different than when they leave for a little bit because I knew they wouldn't be home for a while so I could really enjoy it. Haven't had a day like this in a while. Ran some errands, went shopping for a few things, did all my laundry (it's always hard to get the washing machine with both daughters, one son in law, and 5 kids besides me and my son). Played computer game for a while. Just enjoyed it.
So this morning I have some last minute packing to do and a quick trip to Walmart and fill the car with gas. I'm trying to time it somewhat so I get to the campground at Alpine, AZ about the same time as Lyndaloves2hike and her husband do, and check in time isn't until 2 pm. I'm on New Mexico time, which in the summer is an hour ahead of Arizona since they don't go on daylight savings time, so I have to adjust for that hour too. So I've still got a little time.
I can log my activity and food from my Droid with the SP application, but may not get on the website until probably Tuesday. Not sure what time I'll be back Monday and I'll have to unpack and put stuff away and I know by then I'll be tired. So if I don't get a chance to get online I'll be thinking of you!
My computer goes with me because we're attached and I can still upload pictures from my camera, play games, share pics with Lynda. and other odds and ends if I want to. If I leave it here my grandkids will probably get on it, which they aren't supposed to do. They aren't always kind to computers and my 12 year old gs has downloaded a virus in another one before. I share my house and just about everything else with them, my computer it one thing that is off limits and mine only. Unless they need to do something for school on it and then only with close supervision. Mean they think, but that's okay. Sometimes we have to set things aside for ourselves, as well as time.
So have a great weekend and I'll talk to you later!
