Did I mention it's raining again?

Well, it's been a week, I should probably say something, though what, I'm not really sure. I haven't had much to blog about. I'm not tanning enough, work hasn't been too draining, the weather was sunny but now, of course, it's pouring down rain. Probably because I expect it.

I have a friend in turmoil and it's hard to see friends struggle. I wish I could just put my mindset into her brain and make her see what I see. It isn't that easy, nothing in her life is easy, and it saddens me to see someone who was so much fun go through so much not-fun. Whaddya do, this is life. I guess. Not my life, but still a part of me.

In other gut-wrenching-but-only-really-to-me news, today would have been my dad's 84th birthday. Dang. Happy Birthday.

So tomorrow I am working til around 12n and heading east. I thought perhaps I would go through Burns on my way in, but Helen seems to think it's a longer drive. It probably is but she doesn't realize maybe that I can make it to Burns in four and a half hours if the traffic through that God-awful Wood Village is moving. Instead I'll take I-84 and just burn freeway. I'm not going for any personal bests, I'll just get there when I get there.

I'm only staying until Sunday, however, so I will miss rodeo-related things, but that's cool, I've decided to start living guilt-free (let's see how long THAT lasts). This way I'll be back with the kitnesses before they know I'm gone and I'll still have a complete chill day on Monday. AND I'll get out of dodge, which I definitely need.

Speaking of which, there is a possible Vegas trip on the horizon, so if I get off my ass and work on booking it I'll be that much closer to the privilege of bursting into flames in 120 degrees of Las Vegas August. I want to stay at Mandalay Bay for the sole reason that their pool is like a beach and since I can't really afford to go to Mexico, I might as well do the next best thing. Right? Plus I need an adventure.

Lord knows this blog does.

Of course it's raining again.It's a three day weekend. Promises of mid 90s by Wednesday.We'll see about that!

Vegas may be 120 degrees in August but remember "it's a dry heat". Right! I was in Palm Springs once over Labor Day weekend when it was 113 degrees by 10:00AM.It's just f'ng HOT.

Today I am wearing full on winter-style houseclothes and am considering turning on the heat. It is flipping freezing. This is insanity. If it's in the 90s this week I'll eat my hat.

Get the Hat, add some salt. It is coming.
