I’ve been doing a lot of puzzles over the last month or two. I love doing them but leaning over is hard on my back.
I am learning to step away, even as much as I am addicted, taking breaks to relieve my back.
I took a two day break last week to head down to Battle Ground, WA. to check out a trailer I saw on Craig’s List.
It was a lovely drive along the Columbia Gorge with Mt. Hood in the background. The weather was great, albeit a bit breezy (as it can belong the Columbia River) and I arrived at my destination in about 6 and a half hours.
I couldn’t wait to see the trailer, so instead of going the following morning, I took a chance and went right away. They were home and I got to see it right away.
I won’t go into details but just generally, the gentleman that had the trailer was apparently having trouble with the details on this trailer and contradicted himself many times over the week that I talked with him and when I arrived. Three different weights, two different lengths and all the improvement just made….NOT. So I learned a lesson. Things are not always as they are represented. It was disappointing but not everyone is totally honest…I guess I should know that. Hummm.
I was staying the night in town and the only hotel had a pool and a hot tub, so I had a wonderful relaxing evening and a nice drive home. Lessons learned….yes. And I am ok with that.
