Patiently Waiting for Grace

 

I’ve only raised boys in my life and I guess I’m getting a lesson on what it’s like to have girls.  I assume I’ll be spending a fair amount of time “waiting for Grace”.  My experience with boys is there is a process of being ready and going.  It seems like girls have a process of getting ready…waiting a little longer….change what you’re wearing…walk out the door…forget something…realize your shoes don’t match your hair thingy (or whatever the heck they’re called)…change cloths again…then go…Grace must be in the process of getting ready to go.

I’m also a planner…I know where I’m going, when I’m going and how I’m getting there.  However, on the motorcycle I’m always open for change.  I’ve told many of people I’m turning left and I go right. (No…it’s not a lie)…Cindy and I were planning on a ride  to Pescardero and end up in Santa Cruz.  That would put us 3 hours from the hospital and we’ve decided we don’t want to be that far away.  So, we’re turning left instead of right.  We going to ride up to Sonora, the north on 49 to Placerville.  If that’s not enough miles we’ll head east and maybe go through Apple Hill and further up the mountain.  We’ll be packed for Oregon in case Grace makes her arrival tonight.  I’m still hoping to make it to Crater Lake later this week.  If not, it’s no big deal; we’ll find somewhere to ride.  My goal is 1200 miles for the week minimum.  We’re at about 450 and still itchin to ride. 

A special thanks to Jerry for being on “stand-by” for house sitting and taking care of the place while we’re gone.  It’s tough to plan when we don’t  know when we’re leaving.

Teamster...I'm glad to see you posting again. I missed your wit and quirky Yankovich sense of humor. My thanks to Cindy and Grace for giving you reason to continue the 'Teamster Five-O'...and I'm jealous of your rides...

So funny to think that all my life i have always planned everything, try to never be late and now i am waiting on my little girl. She is on her own time table... Have a feeling i will be doing a lot of waiting for her. I told Michael she must be waiting for Steven to get here to see her arrival, lol. Veronica
