Dan arranged for time off work. I planned dinners for the kids, stocked up on groceries for them. Made arrangements for the kids to take care of the dogs and things around the house. We have hotels booked and routes for each day. I bought a new bathing suit (yuck!), we each have new helmets, there’s even an awesomely cool crown guardian bell for Zoom which is so appropriate for the queen 😀
It’s now 12:15 am. We are supposed to leave late this afternoon. Yes, today. So what’s missing? Zoom of course. The bike has been in the shop for over three weeks now. It was supposed to be ready yesterday. Then 7:00 last night. At that time we were told that they’d bring it to the house between 12 and 1 am. Dan is trying to get a bit of sleep, so here I wait. And lose more and more patience…..
