Life is a Highway

Yesterday I completed the last of the 10 dealer service shops on this route.  I drove to Birmingham to meet with my handyman.  The work he and his team have done is looking great.  Hopefully the next time I am in the area (August 7th), Townhouse #2 will be ready to rent.

I woke up this morning in my $279/night Buckhead hotel.  It is the second and final night for this shop.  I am waiting for my room service breakfast.  Soon afterwards I hit pavement and head south.

This weekend should be slow (I really need a couple of do-nothing days!).  I am doing a drive-thru lunch shop tomorrow at a local Chinese restaurant but have nothing else lined up.  We leave for Vegas on Monday, late afternoon.  It's the first real vacation we have taken in nearly two years.  We have five nights booked at the Suncoast.  The room and food are comped as well as $100/day in gaming.  No, I am not a heavy gambler.  Can't for the life of me figure out why the casino is so generous.

A couple of days after we return for Vegas, the mega road trip begins.  It is so overwhelming that I don't even want to think about it right now.  I just have to keep reminding myself how much the extra income will help.
