Will this be a nice weekend weather-wise? Will you be getting out and doing anything fun?
We're already gearing up for the weekend here. Enrique's 100 Mile race starts on Saturday morning at 6am so today was spent with him finishing up the preparations. My job today is to get a certain dinner on the table at 6pm which is much earlier than we normally eat. He plans to go to bed at 8pm, the sun will have set by then but it won't be completely dark yet. We're getting up at 3am on Saturday, I'll drive him to the start (about an hour east in the mountains) then come back home, and return to pick him up on Sunday mid-morning unless I get notified that he dropped out early. He expects to finish in 30 hrs which will be around noon. So I won't plan to do anything that I cannot stop suddenly if I need to get him. I'll probably do yard work on Saturday. Sunday we may not get back home until mid or late afternoon and I have no idea what to expect after that....don't know if he'll want to eat or just go to sleep, if he'll be able to climb the stairs, if he'll be nauseous, etc etc. Don't know what Monday and Tuesday will hold either....it often takes 24-48 hrs for soreness to really hit. He kept his work schedule clear through Wednesday! Its a little bit nerve-wracking but the good part is that he has assured me that if he's feeling poorly he will drop out. Since he turned 60 he has become more practical in that way, he accepts that he isn't Superman and that he can't just push through the physical exertion like he could when he was younger.
I'm caught up on post-travel stuff, all of the laundry is done and the refrigerator is stocked again. The cat sitter watered my garden so everything is doing well---the tomatoes really grew in just 5 days. I had a good time but I had mostly exhausted the things to do/see in the immediate downtown area. If it hadn't been so hot I could have gone further afield...there is a botanical garden I wanted to see, and some missions, but it was just too hot and humid to be out walking around for very long. If we go back it will need to be in March or April!
