vacation


I love being on vacation, I hate not getting paid for it, but that is the price we pay for being in business for yourself. This year with so much going on, we traded our timeshare for one up at The Ridge in Stateline. We only had it for a week, but had a wonderful time bonding. Stevi and I had it to ourselves most of the time because Jay had to work that week and traveled to and from work. We did some sight seeing and got to go on our friends boat on the lake and where totally pampered by Cat and Jerry for the day, Stevi and I played Raquetball for exercise, (whoa) almost everyday, and went hiking. We hit the gym once but Stevi took advantage of the swimming pool 3 or 4 times and we all enjoyed the hot tub. I got a facial one day and we took our friend Cat horseback riding, which was wonderful......haven't been on a horse in about 18 years. Cat and Jerry invited us over for dinner one night and treated us again, this time to Tri-tip, mashed potatoes and brocoli and cheese, with ice cream and fresh berries for dessert..mmmmmmm. They are such amazing people. Oh and I finished a book I have reading for the last 6 months. Eye of the Dragon by Stephen King. I got to sleep in till 8 or 9 everyday and now I am paying for it by trying to play catch up at work, todays schedule was 6am - 5pm and the rest of the week is as crazy, I am there till 9pm tomorrow, but at least I don't have to go to work until 9am. Well, I am back and oh yeah, the picture is of Stevi, uh , after I beat her at checkers, the stand off was an hour and a half long, our rematch I didn't do so well....Such is life.

Sounds like a wonderful vacation... even so close to home! Are there more pictures?

Did you take pictures on the boat? At Cat & Jerry's house? Horseback riding? Would you eat it on a boat? Would you eat it in a tree? Oh, I'm sorry. I got a little carried away there.
