Hi..we are home from our road trip to Williston...it was a long day with lots of glitches.
First a cow was calving when we got done morning chores so we weren't sure if we'd go...then she finally calved so we were late leaving...
..We stopped at Plentywood for snacks and then headed to Williston...we did some shopping first then went to hubby's favorite pie place and it wasn't open :( Then over to Walmart where I started shopping and hubby went for a snack..when we met up again he still didn't get his snack..he said the line up was too long :( So with out finding any food hubby was not a happy camper :( So I hurried and finished shopping where I couldn't find most of what I was looking for (well at least I saved money and didn't bring home too much stuff)
Then we popped over to buy some beer and head back to Plentywood for supper... well we went to one of our favorite places and the service was horrible..a new waitress lost our order and then it took forever..at least she gave us the salads for free (although hubby's salad came with his meal)
You'd think that was enough but there was more....at the border the agent told us we had too much beer (and have never been told that before...) and the highway home was rough and broken up...we had gone down on the grid roads...
Well..it's been a long and frustrating day..not the fun get away we were hoping for!!
On the plus side it was very warm and sunny..Williston has hardly any snow and we did see one farmer out seeding...luckily when we got home no other cows had calved and all seemed fine on the home front..that would have been the cherry on top if we had lost a calf!!
Perhaps just too over tired and stressed to enjoy the get away...oh well..now it just feels like one more thing to cross of the list of stuff to do...it's been one of those years!!
Better run..almost time for the midnight check and then off to bed and I'm pooped!!
Thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments..Keep on Sparkin'
