Whatta day.  First off, I was disappointed to find out this morning that the restaurant/country store doesn't open until 10:00 am.  No way I was waiting for that place to open.  I ended up walking half a mile to get a cup of coffee. Good leg stretching and a bit of exercise never hurt even in 25 degree weather lol. 

Drove straight back - stopping only for fuel and a quick shower at a Love's in Texas. Got to the yard and saw all kinds of vehicles with out of state plates in front of the office. Big wigs/upper management, I presumed, there for whatever purpose, I did everything by the book figuring I was likely being watched.  Not really helping me, just trying to make my manager look good.  See, look at the drivers, they follow all of your (ridiculous) protocols! I thought and so I did. After that, go inside and sure enough, a bunch of upper management there for what purpose I had no idea and didn't have the desire to find out, I was on a mission to get all kinds of stuff done, chit chatting with them wasn't on my agenda.

I did get introduced to all of them anyway, shook hands, said sorry to cut this short, but I'm flying off to Dallas tomorrow, I've got a lot to do.  They offered me pizza - I said no thanks on a diet.  Which I was - until I get back to my town today and stopped for a quick bite and decided it was time to start my cheat at chili's with a burger loaded with all kinds of carbs.  It was delicious, including the french fries. 

Anyway, I got out of there, headed over to Walmart to get fuel cheap, went to Chili's, went to Maria's got the dogs, went home,  a load of laundry done, spent time with my pups, packed my bags.  Taylor and the kids came home and I said hi to them, then remembered I needed to book a hotel and parking - did the same place as I did last year, got all of that done and finally left. Back to maria's, drop the dogs off, meet some new potential tenants,  flew on down the highway at a rather high rate of speed and am finally here, in Dallas at the hotel which is only like 3 miles from the airport. They have a shuttle leaves here at 4:00 am - my flight leaves at 6:00 am, I should be good. 

Drive drive drive. Finish the drive out from West Virginia, drive home, drive to Dallas. My life is encapsulated with driving all over the place. 

Well I guess it's bedtime. 9:00 pm - gotta get up at 3:30 am at the latest, maybe 3:00 am so I can drink some coffee.  I have nothing more than to leave this room, get on a shuttle, get to the airport, check in my baggage, get through security when I get there and snooze until they start calling people to board the plane.

Hmmm, but I am off the diet temporarily, I'm sure some breakfast potatoes will be in the works somewhere in there.


Happy Independence Day to everyone! Beautiful day in northeast Texas. Well, it's hot and humid but oh well lol. Good day to re-read th...
