Woke up to another gorgeous day this morning. I was out pulling weeds late in the day yesterday and knew I'd not be able to go on a motorcycle ride today. I have far too many things on my to-do list. I warned Gene last night that he'd be riding solo today. It's 9:30 a.m. and he just left. I could count on one hand how many times I've not gone with him on a road trip. A little sinking feeling settled in my stomach but thank goodness my head over-rode the feelings. Who knows, maybe he'll be back in a short time or perhaps he'll end up in Moscow, Idaho. It's a great day for riding but here is the thing ....
I cannot ride when I've got too many things on my mind. Even yesterday, I found myself making a mental list of stuff that I have to get together before we head to AZ for Justin and Amanda's graduation when I should have had my mind on the road. On one hand, I'm glad Gene rode on without me this morning and on the other hand, today is a day that was not promised. If there was anyway I could have squeezed all my errands in during the week so I could ride today, I would have done it but it was not to be.
So, I'll gather up my list and try to get as much accomplished as I can. Maybe he'll come back earlier rather than later and we can take a late-day ride. If not, I hope we don't have too many more days where I wave goodbye as he rolls down the road by himself. I love that guy.
