By the time most of you read this, I’ll be in Wyoming and hopefully soon on my way back to Colorado. This ranch deal is a cluster, mostly because of lawyers. Somehow though it looks like I’ll have it wrapped up today, God willing. I left at 4:30 in the morning meaning I was up a little before 4. This was the only time I could get the guy who needs to sign a document to sign the document. Thankfully he likes me as he’s been really nice and accommodating about the whole thing. Personally I think the lawyers should have had their end together more as they did not tell me or anyone that the last time I drove up, to get the document which they prepared signed, that it would not be good enough. All they had to do was check with the other lawyers, BEFORE I went up, and ask if the document THEY prepared would satisfy the other lawyers concerns. Apparently though then they wouldn’t get to make a half dozen more phone calls (which they charge us for) and prepare another document, which again they charge us for. And don’t forget, then I wouldn’t be able to drive 7 hours round trip to Wyoming for the second time in six days. By the way, I make $2500 a day plus expenses which turn out to be at least $100 per trip in gas!
As Mom always said, you do what you have to do.
Ty worked last night and with me getting up at 3:45 Lori had to stay up until 11:30 to go get him. This of course screws up her day too as she then gets no sleep on a work night.
Yesterday Lori, Jag and Ty and Harley went for a hike after Lori and I went to the gym. I stayed back and did laundry and cleaned the kitchen. This week is a busy one as I’ll need to drive down to Denver (again) on Tuesday to take the document to the lawyers. Then Wednesday Lori and I are witnesses in a personal injury trial from a few years ago, also in Denver. We were subpoenaed otherwise we wouldn’t go. All we will be doing is saying, “yes we saw them bounce up in the bus when it hit a bump”. Then Thursday there’s something but I can’t remember it right now. Friday I have a sales meeting in Denver at 11 am and then Saturday Lori goes to California meaning another trip to Denver to the airport. So I’ll be driving every day this week. Oh and next Monday both boys go on orientation trips (canoeing and kayaking) until Wednesday and then school starts Thursday. And on that Thursday I have a chain meeting with my guy from Florida down in Niwot outside of Boulder. Looks like Lori will have to take the boys on the first day of school.
So that’s what we have coming up, how about you? Anyone going anywhere? Let us know, God Bless.
