Between volleyball

The rest of Tuesday wasn’t bad, considering what I had been through Monday night.

I enjoyed my night at the volleyball matches at Victoria, since I got to see Allan Dunnavan and Greg Hobelmann from Smith Center. They’re good people and I always enjoy their company.  Smith Center won both of its matches over Ellis and Victoria. The Railers won the first match vs. the host Knights, who are struggling this season at 1-10. I have another volleyball match tomorrow at Phillipsburg, which hosts McCook, Neb. It will be a best-of-five varsity match, since the teams are only playing once.

I don’t know why, but I had a hankering for Taco Bell yesterday. I stopped at the TB on Barry Road after leaving Buffalo Wild Wings Monday night, and I made THREE stops Tuesday–Topeka and Junction City on the way back to Russell, and then Hays after the volleyball matches. I love the Baja Blast Mountain Dew and the Doritos Locos Tacos, which I got every time I stopped. There was a brief period earlier this year the Baja Blast Dew was available in 20-ounce bottles at Walmart, but they aren’t now, and the only way you can get it is at Taco Bell restaurants. I also Nachos Bell Grande in KC and Hays, but not on the road Tuesday, because I didn’t think I could eat the nachos while driving.

I had a lot of work to do today, writing and picking out pictures for the Russell County News. Fortunately, everything was done by 3 p.m., and I have a little time to relax before going out tomorrow. The good news is the trip to Phillipsburg means I have to go through Hays, meaning more chances to stop at Taco Bell for Baja Blast.

I can’t stay awake. I fell asleep from 6;45 to 8:30.
