Big News! I'm getting to go to Denver in a couple of days! My mom and I are flying up there to see my brother. He was already planning on driving down here later in the week so we will just ride back down here with him. I'm so excited. I don't get to see him very often and I have never been to Colorado before. And I haven't been on a plane since the summer of 2002. I'm not a huge fan of flying, but i'll work around that. After we get there, my brother is going to meet us there and we'll stay in Denver until the next day. At some point while we are there, we are going to Colorado Springs and going to see Pike's Peak. I watched some videos about it and it looks amazing. I had heard of it before, but didn't really know just how huge it was. The summit is at 14,110 feet. And from what I can tell, there are three ways to get to the top: walking, driving and some sort of train. I looked at the weather for the summit. On tuesday the high is going to be 42deg. How awesome is that?! And there is snow on the top!! I have seen a total of about 4 inches of snow in my whole life. And snow in east texas just doesn't seam as authentic as snow on a mountain. My dad would have loved going up there. He would probably have preferred hiking up the mountain, but I just cant' see myself making that whole trek. I can handle walking maybe the last half mile. Being on the top of that mountain will probably be the closest I could get to him up in heaven while standing on earth. I'm not sure what other exciting things we will do while we're up there, but i'll try to give a full report when I get back.
I have kids that don't want to go to sleep at the moment. Well, just one kid. Leslie just came in here to tell me that her bed is no longer comfortable and she can't find the right spot to fall asleep in. She is hoping that I will tell her to just go get in my bed. She thinks my bed is the softest bed in the world. I think my bed feels like concrete. And she has the air conditioner in her room. I have thought about going and getting in the empty bunk bed in her room to sleep. Hopefully if everything goes well, our ac will be fixed on Tuesday. I'm off to go sweat my self to sleep and watch saturday night live. Tonight is the rerun of the most recent time Alec Baldwin hosted it. He's a hottie.
