Tomorrow we ride. That’s right. Every anxiety or concern about any aspect of my life will be cast in the dirt as I hit I-55 heading south to the closest beach possible. And as I drive my muscles will relax, my head will clear, and I will be surrounded by peace. We will arrive roughly at midnight and I will go straight to the beach to smell the salt water and feel the sand. Didn’t go to the beach last year so we have a lot of catching up to do. I will sit on the beach everyday next to my wife and do as little as possible. My kids are all old enough to fix their own meals and go to the bathroom and put on sun screen. I will not tell anyone to do anything. I will only tell someone not to do something if it is going to hurt themselves or someone else. AWESOME.
The down side is I have to finish work today and tomorrow. DRAG.
