A busy week

Okay, I've got a very busy week going leading up to our vacation that starts on Saturday. I worked Monday for a coworker on vacation. I am going into work today to finish up a chart review that I started last week and need to get done today. Wednesday I work my usual day in Grants Pass (the other hospital that our diabetes education team serves). Then Thursday and Friday I have two more days of a conference on performance improvement measures (part two of 4 two-day events). That will mean early drives to Grants Pass those two days.

Amidst all that work-related stuff, I have to do my part of getting us prepped for the vacation. Today I ran a bunch of random errands. Sunday I ran a bunch of laundry, but I'm sure we'll need to do a last minute batch just before we pack. Sunday I also went to the mall and bought some new summer clothes that will be very versatile to make the packing easier. Ugghh... but it will all be worth it when we drive out of town on Saturday for a two week adventure.

So, what are we going to do in Montana, anyway? I have been thinking perhaps we will stay one night in Bozeman, which is ranch country, with mountains to the west. It looks like there is a lot to do in that area. Then one night in Missoula, which is a university town and should have some fun activities. The whole area is a maze of scenic drives on my maps. Actually, we just looked it up, both Bozeman and Missoula are university towns.

It would be really fun to go on a guided fishing trip, but that is so spendy... I found a bed and breakfast that is also a wolf sanctuary. So maybe tonight D and I can decide on where to stay and make our reservations.

Gosh, your life sounds hectic like mine has been the past two weeks. I hope you have a great trip! I'm looking forward to a slide show featuring some wildlife when you return.

All of that "getting ready to go" work will soon pay off, then you can just enjoy the vacation.

A few years ago (yikes-it was Five!) I think we just cut through the corner of Montana to Yellowstone, on our way home from a trip out to Portland and Seattle.

Prayers for a trouble-free trip!
