Aimless Tuesday

Sorry for going off radar after I left Kansas City last Friday. It was a very good stay. I wish I could have extended it a day, but with the temperatures plunging towards zero Friday night and Saturday morning, I figured it was best I didn’t punish my car by keeping it in the elements. 

I saw everyone I wanted to at Buffalo Wild Wings, and there was no trouble, so it was a spectacular success. I’m hoping to go back sooner rather than later, hopefully sometime in March. 

I did ZERO once I got back Friday evening, save for doing my writing. Did not leave the house for anything. Not even zipping to Sonic for a drink. I did my best to stay off social media on Sunday, Valentine’s Day. However, I did get a Happy Valentine’s Day wish from Liz at 11:35 p.m., which made it great. 

I finally got my butt and my car out of the house this afternoon for another drive to Norton. Bluejays host Hoxie tonight. The Indian girls had their state record 107-game winning streak snapped three weeks ago by Hill City, but it may have been a blessing in disguise. Now there’s no pressure to keep the streak going, and Hoxie can focus on winning its fifth consecutive state championship. 

My schedule for the week was altered yesterday afternoon. My appointment with Crista was supposed to be Thursday morning, but I got a call from her office yesterday at 2:30 saying she had to go out of town Thursday. I was worried I would not get another appointment before my next one March 3, but luckily, I was able to squeeze in tomorrow at 2. 

It actually works out better. Once my work is done for the Russell paper, I can go to Hays and take my time afterward, and Thursday is now totally free. Part of me wants to go to Nebraska to visit places I can’t in Kansas City or Wichita, part of me wants to just go to Topeka and Salina, part of me wants to make a surprise trip to KC to see Dawn and Robb, Stephanie Suggs and the others. Hmmm. 

Right now? Basketball. And visiting with Peggy.
