Post 397

My husband's schedule for this week was supposed to be local stuff. Then Thursday or Friday there was a change to Shreveport. We've been to Shreveport a lot, so it is no big deal anymore. But I usually go with him if I'm not in school or something. We don't do a lot, but we go to a casino and we have lunch and gamble about twenty dollars. Maybe we go shopping for a bit or take a walk near the river. No big deal really, it's just nice to get away for a bit.


Then, at the last minute there was another change in the schedule, and he's going to Oklahoma instead. There's a motel that we like to stay at in Tulsa, but the place he is going to work is about an hour's drive from there, so we'll probably only stay there the first night and then get something closer.


I'm planning to go. There won't be much to do, and we don't have any money for such things anyway, but again it would be nice just to get away for a bit. I'd have my knitting to work on, cable TV, a couple of books to read, and I might go for a swim. It's August, and I don't think that I've been in a pool since last year.


I keep changing my mind about going. I do that. I said that I would go if the water timer worked and I didn't have to worry about the plants. It worked, but I'll still worry about the plants and everything else while I'm gone. I still might change my mind again and not go. But I'm supposed to go. I packed a bag and such.


Anyway, if I go I might not be around for a bit. I never really know about the Internet situation until I get where I'm going. Most of the places we stay say that they have free Internet, but at some places it is a complicated bit of business with passwords and such, and sometimes there's a clueless new manager or something and the bill wasn't paid and no Internet. Really, some of these people don't even know what the Internet is.


And then, of course, there is the problem of getting my husband to give up the computer for a bit when we do have the Internet.


Okay, so that's I might be here and I might not. And if I go I might be posting stuff and I might not. The first night I might have the Internet or I might not, and then we'll be moving to a different motel where we might have the Internet or we might not. And I might get the computer away from my husband for a bit, or I might not. Anyway, check back later, but I might not be here.

Well, we're in Tulsa.

We'll see how things go tomorrow.

Okay, now we've left Tulsa and are in the middle of nowhere down the road from Tulsa. Today and tomorrow are going to be in the low 90s, while the rest of the trip is in the low 80s. I don't expect to do a lot of swimming. But that's okay. The knitting and the sci fi channel are passing the time.

You should be in hotel heaven as long as the AC works.

Okay, we'll be heading home in an hour or so. Nothing very interesting happened this trip. But I did get away from the heat for a while.
