Well. . .it’s been awhile. As usual.
This week is spring break: Dave and I went to Colorado Springs for a long weekend. We went up to Pikes Peak (no apostrophe, which frustrates me a bit–it should be Pike’s Peak!) on a train; we visited the Garden of the Gods; we took a lantern tour of The Cave of the Winds; we shopped in Manitou Springs; we visited the casinos in Cripple Creek; and on the way home today, we visited The Big Texan in Amarillo, TX. It was a fantastic trip, and I feel like I have a better grasp of the “wild west” influence on this region, including Oklahoma. Eventually, I will post pictures. Really.
We came back a day early because Brownie wasn’t coping too well with being boarded (Sam and Katy were fine, of course): Brownie refused to eat, and she had an upset stomach most of the weekend. . .because we treated her like an animal (gasp) and put her IN A KENNEL. WITH OTHER DOGS. As if living with Sam and Katy wasn’t bad enough. . .I have ruined her, I know.
The goal for the rest of the week? Get caught up on EVERYTHING. *gulp* We’ll see how it goes. . .
