Weekend crawling to its conclusion

Sunday is almost over, and so is the weekend. Pretty boring. Between Hallmark Channel movies and football, it was mostly unproductive, although I did get my laundry done tonight and wrote a few articles. Now I want to pack as much as I can for this trip to Kansas City sometime this week.

I was going to leave for KC Thursday, but now it’s supposed to snow Wednesday. Getting in on Tuesday night would allow me to beat the snow and spend Wednesday in the hotel if I couldn’t get on I-29 to make the short drive to Zona Rosa.

I feel really, really bad about not going to see Caitlyn play in Goodland. Peggy said it was okay, and yes, it is a 168-mile drive one way from Russell to Goodland, but I feel a little uneasy about not showing up at least once. It means I have to go to Norton for the home opener on the 16th. If I don’t, not only will I not see anyone until the new year, but it will be a big letdown.

Sadly, Peggy and Clark got crunched on Interstate 80 in Nebraska Saturday. They came out of it okay physically, but the car got damaged pretty good. I haven’t had a bad accident like that since I hit the deer on US 183 in October 2005, but I’m always scared it might happen.

I pray for Caitlyn. She means a lot to me. So does her whole family.

The College Football Playoff is set. No changes to the top four, except Clemson and Ohio State swapped spots at 2 and 3. Alabama vs. Washington in the Peach Bowl, and the Tigers and Buckeyes in the Fiesta Bowl. It really doesn’t matter. The Crimson Tide will win it all. Again. YAWN.

LSU plays Louisville in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando. I hope my alma mater beats the living crap out of the Cardinals. Never have been a Louisville fan, and its coach, Bobby Petrino, is a giant douchebag.

Maybe I get on the road tomorrow. Maybe I don’t. I’m torn about not seeing Caitlyn, but I do want to see Robb and Dawn, plus everyone else.

Good night.
