Day 283 – Errands

After a fun night of insomnia, I got to start my day with the alarm going off before 6am and Garbanzo asking if I would hit the snooze bar.  I was up….after maybe 4 hours of sleep.

Then, I spent 2 hours driving the kids to school, Garbanzo to the airport, then back home. Why 2 hours? School is about 20 minutes away on a dry day – and it was raining hard this morning.  The airport is far from school. And home was in between.  Lots of fun.

Then, I had to go downtown to get my “race packet” for Sunday.  My t-shirt, my time chip, and my race number – complete with 2 beverage tickets for the event after. 

Because of the other errands I had to do which entailed me running all over the city, I had to hit a drive through for lunch.  You can tell Portland is a bike friendly town when you see things like this:

Bikes in the drive through.

I ended my day having to drive out and get DJ from school…because she was “sick”.  Then, she proceeded to show us she wasn’t really THAT sick as she entertained us the entire way home.  I seriously believe, I spent 5 hours in the car running errands. 

And, tomorrow morning, I get to be in two place at once as the girls each have a soccer game at the same time at opposite ends of the city. Woo-hoo!
Is it wrong that I’m hoping one of the kids really IS sick??

    2 drink tickets? They know you well! 😉

    Good luck being in two places at once AND in the race on Sunday!

  3. Wait! I think I saw this in Three’s Company once. Or was it Bosom Buddies? Hmmmm anyway. What you need I’d to have Derek dress up like you for one game while you attend the other.

    It goes without saying that Derek can’t let your landlord know it’s him or oh my hilarious comedic misunderstandings will ensue!

    What a crapper that a ride to take the kids to school is so long.

    I like the fact that you get two tix after the race. Do you also wear a GPS watch (garmin, for instance) to monitor your heart rate?

What do you think?
