Man I Must Have Been Ugly!

Yesterday evening I laid down for a beauty rest about 8:30 PM and woke up about 7:30 this morning. If that was a beauty sleep, I must have been really UGLY! I did work yesterday and Thursday so I had the right to be tired but Sheesh, 11 Hours? I woke up about 9:45 last night and had really struggle to figure out what time it was. I rolled over and next thing I knew it was morning.
Barb's Mother's Day present was really easy this year. We were at WalMart and she saw a bench that goes around a tree and decided it was on sale and would be just the ticket. I did manage to disassemble it enough to get it in the car and get it home. She never sees anything she wants when we have the truck but Bang, see something in the car and we disassemble things and drive home in the car with things everywhere. One trip home from Nebraska Furniture Mart in KC she sat in the backseat and I had to unload half of the car just so she could get out when we got home. She does have an eye for bargains so it was really a good price. At least this time she could sit up front even if I couldn't see out the rear view mirror.
School is winding down and I think there is about 8 days with one of them being a field day. Most of the elementary schools will have Friday busy outside so if I do sub it will be at the middle school or High school. Most of the schools are trying to get their outdoor sports finished and have been rained out a lot. They are playing double headers and the coaches need out an hour or two early to get the games in. Earlier this week I actually was there only one hour and five minutes in class and got paid for half of a day. Even then, we watched a video about China.
I have a full schedule of things to do here and had better get to some of them.
One thing I have been working on is the trip to Las Vegas. I can't decide if I want to go straight to Vegas and take a grand Canyon tour from there or stop in Kingman, AZ on the way and make a side trip. I think that at least once in my adult life I should see one of the wonders of the world. The rest of the trip is entirely up in the air for now. Probably will include a trip to Idaho but details are still fuzzy for now.


  1. I'll be in my gas station in July. Why don't you sop by?

  2. 8 more days and free at last! :-)

    Grand Canyon, sounds like fun! Why don't you just wing it.

  3. Hey don't they have that glass walk over the Grand Canyon now?

    I'm looking forward to getting to meet your mother! I have heard so many awesome things about her.

  4. I wouldn't spend $75.00 to walk on a glass walkway and look straight down a mile or so. I have been to the bridge over the Royal Gorge and have leaned over the edge to see the Arkansas river as it splashes through the narrows. Barb may not even come to the canyon. I am trying to get there about sunset so I can get some really good pictures. Stand by.
    I hope you enjoy mom's company as she is the best we have. I think you will see where Beck gets a lot of her sense of self and humor. At least when Beck is not on drugs. MUD
