Yesterday was a tour of airports and travel day. I dropped of B-Money at the SLC airport around 7am. He made it home safely to Appleton at approximately 4:20pm. Good news. I then hurried from there to the airport in Montrose, Colorado to meet up with Wife. I made it there in plenty of time to have a nice Thai lunch and still get to the airport in time for her arrival. I was so excited to see her. Once I sat in the airport and knew her plan landed my heart started racing. It felt like I was waiting on a blind first date or something. I could see her get off the plane outside and walk in, I saw her long before she saw me. My reaction was overwhelming joy to see her. Her reaction was, “Oh my god, your face!” She claims it was because of my unshaven state, but I have my doubts.
After our reunion at the airport we drove to Telluride, about an hour and a half. We got checked in to our hotel (Murphy Bed), rented her skis for the week, ate an early bird special dinner, and were asleep in bed by 7:30. It’s like we never missed a beat traveling together.
Today we spent time on Telluride Mountain. The weather was perfect, maybe not for skiing, but perfect. There were beautiful blue skies, not a cloud to be seen or a hint of wind. The temperature was a scolding 45 degrees. By the end of the day on the mountain I was sweating. We had a blast. Wife looked great on her big girl skis. She looked cool, confortable, and confident, like an Enjoli Perfume woman. We cruised until about 2:30, quite a long first day actually.
I am so happy to have her here with me right now. Whatever she wants to do this week, we will do. It sounds like we might be taking a day or two trip up to Crested Butte. I may not let her leave when the time comes. There was a tiny part of me that thought she might show up at the airport with 2 dogs and all her clothes. Had that happened we definitely never would have come home.
I had a great time last week with Bradford. One of our favorite things to do was drive around on this road. It made us chuckle every time. Since B-Town is now gone the burden baton of responsibility for taking care of me has now been passed on. I hate to say that she is already falling short, but I received no warning of this sign at all and now have a burn.
