Skillz

I'm off to Wilmington, N.C. The car is...not packed, the coffee is...not ready and I'm in my jammies. OK, so I'm almost ready. No great news to report other than hubs put my tire changing skillz to the test last nite. Yeah, I can do it, even with the little CO2 cartridge BUT I'm not the fastest on the planet. Here's to NO mechanicals and NO flat tires.

I've booked it all, all the work is done, I just need to concentrate on the present, stay calm, channel my energy and stay warm. Yep, Saturday morning will NOT be a warm one. I've have wrangled my coaches full wetsuit, booties and hat. Water temp is 68 and dropping and there's something about right whales in the marine forecast. I PROMISE you I will freak out if I see this ugly thing!


I hope to deliver the PR I'm looking for....

The most telling line of your post is "the work is done." It is, and you are ready to excel.

Enjoy your day.
