So after Sunday Fun-day, it was time to get to work. Monday was pretty low key. I stayed at the hotel and worked most of the day except for a short break in the pool while the sun was shining. I went to the pool about lunch time and there were no kids there yet – score!! There was only one other person in the pool – a nice grown up lady- yada yada – we’re facebook friends now! How cool is that???
Tuesday I went up to Denver to a job site with one of the guys from work and worked along the way – solved a problem in the car at the job site- and got to go out to lunch with a great battery guy in Colorado I talk to all the time but have never met in the real person. Oh and I ordered Catfish for lunch that day – how cool – I like it but never order things that are different for me.
After lunch I headed back to the hotel where I realized I left my phone in Dennis’s truck. I went over 18 hours with out my phone. It was weird, but I survived.
For dinner that night Keith wife, Heather! took me for Margaritas and Mexican food to this really cute place in Manitou Springs. Two take aways from this – 1- Mole is good. 2- two big margaritas at 6000 feet above sea level is not a good idea. I was so tipsy I thought I might puke. Seriously?? I am definitely a cheap date in Colorado. I am pretty sure I was “asleep” within about 8 minutes of returning to my hotel room. The good news is that I did not feel too bad in the morning.
Wednesday morning I got up, retrieved my phone and headed up to the far north end of Denver alone to meet with some customers that we do work for. They were a super group of guys and it was great seeing their place and getting to chat in person. We all had lunch together before I headed back down to Colorado Springs to do some quick work and start packing because I was heading home in the morning. I had dinner that night at the Saltgrass steak house with my work guys, said good bye to them and headed back to the hotel to finish packing up my stuff. I will of course deny any reports of my crying as I left the restaurant. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! I headed back to the hotel and got ready for the journey home.
