Wow, it’s been almost a year since I last wrote something in/on here. Time flies when shit’s happening. I’ll get into more detail in later posts when I’m not typing on my phone.
My nieces have been spanning 2 nights per week for 3 weeks at my house with my mom babysitting (I work from home but can’t be too distracted). It’s great but trying to entertain a 9 and 6 year old can be tough without them watching TV. Taking them out almost always costs money because they beg for toys and candy and whatnot and my mom, Grandma, can’t say no too often. I mean there’s a drawer Full of candy just for the girls that they raid when they want. So today will be the last day of the 3 weeks with Grandma, then Mom gets 3 days’ rest before I come back home.
We tried to pack kayaks but the old 1980-something Bronco doesn’t have a rack on it and they were impossible to tie on. So we brought our bikes and bouldering gear. This will be our first time bouldering on real rock so I’m excited to see how that goes! Anyway the back is crammed with our stuff and it feels like a cross-country trip even though it’s just cross-state.
