Well it looks like my wife will have to rent a car for her business trip. It’s not far enough to justify an airplane trip, but her car has decided to make some funny noises and there is no way I will have it fixed in time for her to go. I found some good car rental deals though and that will suffice. Her boss has decided to pay for the rental, so it will not come out of our pockets. I am just going to put her car in the shop while she is gone and be done with it. I am sure it is nothing major, but really don’t want to mess with it myself at this time.
This trip is an annual trip she takes to inspect a factory they use for some of their products. it is about five hours away in a very small town, hence the reason she drives there. She likes to take road trips anyway and this gives her an excuse to go on one all by herself. She says it is relaxing to be away from the office and be able to just unwind on the way to the factory. I have offered to go with her a few times, but she always declines.
I do worry about her on the road, but she is a big girl and can take care of herself. She can change a flat tire and anything else she has AAA for. I will miss her but it is only a week, so she won’t be gone long.
Well, the old lady made me go out and buy some new duds last night. I apparently need them for a big benefit associated with her job. I haven’t had to wear a tuxedo in a very long time, and the last one was rented. I would have rented one this time too, but she said no. She thinks I need to buy one, “just in case” I need it in the future. I kind of think it’s a little over kill. How often do I actually need a tux? Once every ten to fifteen years is the answer. By the time I get to wear this again, it will no longer fit, but try telling her that. Sheesh!
Winter is almost over and I am so happy. I cannot wait until boating season, and fishing season, and camping season. I am sick of the cold weather already. I cleaned out the garage and got everything prepped and ready for a trip of any kind as soon as the weather permits. There have been warm days already, but usually it is raining and they are always during the week. The weekends are always cold, cold, cold. I think a camping/fishing trip will be first on the agenda. Just little while longer and then we can go. My wife is excited too, because she loves to camp and fish as well.
There is a great Mexican restaurant near our house that is kind of high end. It is not your normal taco joint, that is for sure. We always take a taxi when we go there, because they make the best margaritas. The problem is, the margaritas are huge. You barely taste the tequila, so you tend to think there isn’t that much in it. After about the third one, you know that there was more in it then you thought. We are familiar with it though, hence the taxi. When it’s that good, you make adjustments. Note to anyone who visits there; never drink more then three of their margaritas. You will regret it.
I am trying to decide what to give the wife for Valentines day. I am thinking about several different choices but she really loves perfume oils, so I know that will probably be one of her gifts. I usually get her a couple of different gifts, but I am well aware of her favorites. she likes the oils because the fragrance lasts longer than other types of perfumes.
