Division II Team States for High School Women's Track is in Linden, Michigan.
That is near Mrs ERJ's childhood stomping grounds. We talked it over and she decided that she would rather stay home.
We had a couple of sick people this week, including me. That is one of the reasons you got the "Regime Speak" series. Opinions take little thought or effort.
The inside of the house is messier than she is comfortable with as a result of the illness and she wants to make it fit for healthy humans again.
Also, Mrs ERJ and I complement each other with our natural diurnal cycles. I find it easy to get up in the morning and painful to stay up late. Mrs ERJ is the opposite. Given the distance to Linden and the schedule, driving Belladonna to the meet qualifies as the early-shift....and I won.
It will be mid-70s and very sunny. A fabulous day to get a sunburn. Track meets last F-O-R-E-V-E-R. The bigger the meet, the longer it takes. Team States is a big meet.
