I'm Not As Young as I Used To Be!

Saturday night, 10:30 p.m., and I'm dead beat!

Yes, Hubby and I got to go on the mystery trip--I think we're just suffering from allergies. Yes, we went go-kart racing here in town, and yes, we went to a winery up in the Amador/El Dorado foothills. It was a ton of fun and I have stuff to tell you about, but I'm too tired tonight and I haven't even downloaded my photos yet.

First thing I did when I got home was take a nice, cool bath and put my jammies on. Oh, it felt good to wash the day off!

I'll tell you a funny thing before I go to bed. Just before I woke up this a.m., I had a dream that one of our senior partners called me into his office and told me I was going to have to do something about my hair--it was just too messy. He thought I should see a stylist. Right after that, I woke up and saw it was just before my alarm was set to go off. I was a little puzzled about why one of the senior partners would think my hair was too messy, but I DO think about doing something different with it every so often, so I thought maybe THAT's where the idea was coming from.

Now the funny part. Do you have any idea what a head condom (okay, that's not what they're REALLY called but I don't remember the name and that's what they looked like--kind of like a ski mask but lighter weight) and a helmet do to a person's hair? I think my dream was quite prophetic! And I had absolutely NO idea we'd have to wear those things!

Okay, bed time for me--and I'm pretty darn sure I'll go to sleep quite fast tonight. I'll be back tomorrow night to tell you more about the day.

Oh, and by the way--my racing name? "Quilty Speeder"!

That sounds like a really fun day, but I should think you were almost beyond tired when you got home. Looking forward to hearing more about it when you've recovered.

So all of you perfessionals were in go-karts chasing each other? That should have been a blast. Who won?

I can't to wait hear more of the details of your day. What you've said so far sounds like fun.

Glad you were able to go and had a fun time, and the racing name "Quilty Speeder" is so appropriate. Do not know anyone who can turn out so many quilts as you do. Enjoy your Sunday.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

What significance were the lions on the shirt?
If you want my opinion, which I know you did not ask for, you should cut your hair short like mine. It only takes 3 or 4 minutes to dry and style in the morning after your shower. I should have done it years ago.

Hey Ms Quilty Speeder! I hope you had a good day to rest after your fun Company Event.

I am admiring you for being able to get down into the go kart. Ah, youth!

Sounds like you had a great time! I think it's great your workplace does this!
