On the road

Ok so the man had a discussion with the guys about them screwing around and wasting time. They seemed to understand. Considering one guy is insistent on being back by Monday or Tuesday.

So they left Junction City, Colorado and ended up in Canon, Colorado by the end of the day.

From there they headed into Kansas. According to the man it wasn't that fun of a ride. Very flat, not much to look at and smelled of pig and cow shit. Which I can imagine can be pretty foul when you are on a bike and don't have the interior of a car to sort of buffer it a tad.

By the end of the day they stopped in Dodge City. They were told by many people to stay out of bars with Spanish names because they would definitely end up in a bar fight and in the middle of a lot of gang activity. So they pretty much stayed out of any bar at all just to avoid any possible fighting, since one of the guys on the trip is known to be a moron and could possible cause a fight. Instead they went to the Steak House attached to their hotel.

Today, they continued on through Kansas. By around 2 they had hit Wichita and I believe they will be trying to making it to Joplin, Missouri by the end of the day. They are getting closer. Wondering how the ride through Missouri is going to go. I believe they are going to go through there and head a little south so that they can hit Nashville, which probably won't happen until Saturday. That should be interesting...

Biker status

I finally heard from the man last night right before I went to bed. They ended up in Grand Junction, Colorado. They didn't leave Park City until probably 1 in the afternoon, which is stupid late when you are traveling on a bike. I mean lets travel starting at the hottest time of the day...der. But it wasn't his decision, he was ready to leave at 9 am.

He is getting a little annoyed with his partners in travel, who seem to have the most retarded concept of where things are in this country. I mean they wanted to go from San Diego to San Francisco, which is fine. But when you also want to go see the Grand Canyon, it doesn't make much sense. OH and they also wanted to see Mt Rushmore, which is in South Dakota. So basically the route that they would need to take would have been a north to south zig zag that slowly headed east.

And then today he was ready around 9 again, but the other three guys were farting around. They wanted to go to the Harley dealer. So they did and were there for 2 hours, then he texts me that after that the guys wanted to go to the post office to mail stuff home and then to target before they left. Needless to say the man was livid. By the time he texted me it was already 11 and they HAD to go to the post office and target, for what...I have no idea.

Then he tells me that the guys were talking about going to North Dakota and to Nashville. It was bad enough one of the guys insisted they go to Salt Lake City from Arizona, which turned out to put an extra 800 on their travels cause it is so far north and they could have just cut across the southern part of Utah through to Colorado. So now they wanted to go through three states to get to North Dakota and then go south east through another 3 or so states to get to Tennesee. They could have been more than half way home by now, but they aren't going on any sensible course to get back east, they just keep going north and south out of their way.

So the man is pissed, he hasn't been home since the 16th and he just wants to be done. He is tired of the guys fucking around all morning when they could be riding and actually seeing and visiting stuff. Because by the time they leave they can only get maybe 5-6 hours of riding in for the day.

So that's the status of where the man is. Me, I am just sitting here doing my regular every day shit. I kind of want his trip to be over now. He is having fun, so I don't fault him for it and it's a once in a lifetime kind of thing, so I have the patience to wait for him to get back. I'm just getting bored now.

Update n'stuff

The man has been gone since the 16th. He had to work in San Diego on a show for 5 days.

He shipped his motorcycle there and he and three other guys are currently riding back east.
They left on Thursday afternoon, going south to Yuma Arizona. Then from Yuma to the Grand Canyon. Then Grand Canyon to Park City Utah. They left Park City sometime late morning and that's the last I have heard from him. They were heading to Colorado, not sure what town. I am assuming the lack of text messages is either there is very little to no signal out in the mountains or his phone died.

I usually get a phone call or message when they finally hit a hotel. So hopefully they had a good day of riding and I will hear from them soon.

I think I should see him sometime on Monday or Tuesday depending on how many miles they do a day. The last three days they were doing around 400 miles a day, so who knows.

Trip to the loo my darlin'

My parents gave me a bunch of pictures to scan. These are pics of my dad when he was very little.
I was going through them when I found one that just makes me laugh my ass off. It's a picture of my dad, at about 3 yrs old, sitting on the toilet with his legs crossed.

Is it wrong for me to scan that, frame it and put it in my bathroom? Cause I am so doing it.

This is just too cute

It's Wii-derful

The man got me a Wii for my birthday yesterday! That was the highlight of my day. I usually take the day off for my birthday to just do nothing and chill out. However, since I took off two weeks for the honeymoon, they kind of frowned on it. So I had to work, for the first time, on my birthday and it sucked. There was nothing to do, so I just sat here goofing off on the internet.

I went home for lunch and the man was running around, on the phone doing stuff. Very uneventful.
Back at work he tells me that he has failed. I said failed what? He said he had been trying all day to get me a Wii and couldn't find one. He called 80 Game Stops trying to find one that had them. No no avail. So I was a little bummed but what can you do.

So I got home from work and my parents were at my house making dinner. Yes in my family we get what we want for dinner home made by mom. So I wanted filet mignon, corn on the cob and mashed taters, followed by German Chocolate Cake.

The man tried to give me my presents before dinner, but I wanted to wait. So after dinner he gave me games and controllers for the Wii, telling me that he would try and get a wii as soon as possible but at least we had the controllers and some games to start when we do get it. But then he pulled out another box, which I had already seen on the floor, and that had the wii in it. YAY! He got me the Wii!!

I can seriously understand why so many people want it, it is so much fun to play. I played for a good 3 hours yesterday and I am itching to get home to play again.

The man wants to get the Wii Fit so that he can work out to it. He was at home today playing the boxing game working up a sweat, so maybe it could work for him. Who knows.

Now I have to go out and get him something for his birthday, which is on Saturday. Probably going to buy him another DS because he left his last one on the plane coming home from our honeymoon. He is seriously like a kid sometimes when it comes to losing things.

And so continues our summer of birthdays. The new nephew is on the July 1, I am the 7th, my g-mom is the 9th, the man is the 12th, my brothers fiancé is the 17th, my sisters is the 23rd and my sister-in-law's is the 31st.

In Pain

So I went to my trainer two days ago after an absence of a month.
I don't know what the hell happened but suddenly my shoulder has no strength in it. It is my arthritic owwie shoulder (thanks so much sports as a kid). But I didn't think a month off would put it in this state. I could barely press 10lbs. And now it hurts so bad I can barely lift my arm. Just lifting my arm to put in a cd hurts.
Now I have to put off the gym again until it starts to feel better. Damnit!

In other news, not much is going on in this neck of the woods. Tomorrow is Independence Day, so I get the day off. I am having people over for a bbq and if they want they can stay until fireworks, since they are done a block or so away. The cool thing is we can watch them from my backyard, so we don't have to deal with the crowds.

So last night I was cleaning and organizing the man's mess of a filing cabinet. I don't know how he finds anything. Everything is stuffed in there and half folded or crinkled so that it takes up more space. So I sat on the floor and put everything in it own folder to be named later when I get the damn tab things. Looks like I am going to be the one to deal with the bill filing, so that it doesn't become a total mess.

Then I went on to clean the living room, which was a tad dusty. And I found the most foul thing on the shelves. Shoved against the side, so that I couldn't see it from across was room, was a beer bottle with a bit of beer left in it. I am not sure how long it had been sitting there, but there was mold floating in it and a spider. Freaking disgusting. I can only assume the man left it there on our wedding day when we had people over and we got tanked. But still freaking gross. *shudder*

I still have some cleaning left to do. The kitchen needs a scrubbing and you always have to make sure the bathrooms are clean when you have company over. And our bedroom is a dust ball. SO that will be my evening tonight.

I have an hair appointment today too. My hair has made it to the middle of my back and that is just way too long for summer. My hair is so heavy and thick it makes me crazy and I just need to hack it off. I would go really short, but I know the man would be sad, so I think to the shoulders is as much as I am going to cut off.

So it would be nice to get out of work early so I don't have to fight traffic to get to the appointment. But I don't think that is going to happen. The boss is going on a 2 week vacation to Isreal and when he is going to be away for a while, he spazzes and panics and we end up having to stay even when we don't have any work to work on. Oh well, that's the way it goes I guess.

Oh well, I have rambled enough for now. Not that I am boring that many of you. Just my one reader in Canada. Hello Canada.

Have a good weekend.
