With only a week before I leave, this weekend has been spent doing last minute fixes to the Green Giant and trailer. I also started packing.
My dad has been spending many, many hours since we bought the Green Giant to get it in shape for the trip and a summer away from his mechanical eye. I would never be able to do all the equine activities I do if I didn't have my dad. This week the GG has an appointment with a diesel specialist to check the transmission and then it's cleared for travel. The trailer required less work. Unfortunately, the customer service where I bought the trailer did not live up to my expectations and so Dad is cramming a few last minute minor fixes in this week.
There are two huge suitcases packed with work, barn, and fun clothes sitting upstairs in my room. I work in MKE (Milwaukee) Monday to Wednesday this week and head home Thursday morning. Thursday and Friday will be spent packing the trailer with our things.
Sitta/Jenna has the house to herself this summer. She starts nursing school on June 21 and I doubt she'll notice I'm not here! She bought a patio set and grill, so I expect she'll have many nice evenings cooking.
Oh boy, it's 9:30am already! I have lots to do today must get a move on. Maybe later today I'll spend some time exploring this blog and its options.
