Barbie to Boston
My third and final tour across America brings me a mix of excitement and nervousness. This is the grand finale and I still doubt my strength. There are a handful of XC09ers joining me for part or all of the ride and their support have shown me the CrossRoad riders are friends that I will have a life time.
Today is my last day of work until June 27 and I will miss my home away from home and the friends that I spend most of my time with. I am thankful for my employer and manager for being flexible with my vacation time. I feel extremely lucky to have the opportunity to have this time to explore America.
I will miss my growing family. By growing I mean Dad’s new girlfriend, Lydia and Wendy, Michael’s girlfriend. (My nephew recently moved her from Alabama.) I will miss my girl Roxy and her paws kicking my side every night.
I wonder what the likely hood of getting Hottie to do laundry at the end of the day. Maybe if I get the coins and beer together, he might do the wash. Along with my stats for the day, I will include a new category. It will be: Total beer consumed at route rap. The goal, of course, is to only have one.
