my google search this morning was ‘top things to do in Camrose, Alberta’…  the number one thing was ‘get in your car and drive away’…

then immediately I googled ‘top things to do in Dodsland, Saskatchewan’…  there was only one option for fun in Dodsland and it was the museum…  which in my 17 years of living in the area I have not ventured in…


when I googled ‘top things to do in Plenty, Saskatchewan’ (the other town I am near)… google did not recognize it…

apparently there is a theatre here in Camrose, two museums, an art gallery and an 18 hole mini golf…  all of these options, attractive and enticing as they are, did not peak my interest this morning…

let’s back up a step… why am I laying in a bed in a Canalta Hotel in Camrose you ask?  in the middle of lake season?

because I tend to like being near the farmer and follow him on all of his life adventures…  this one I maybe should have skipped…  and just let him tell me the story later…

he is in a coaching course…  for coaching hockey…  for 7 days, from 8 am – 9:30 pm, he has sessions, practices, coaching and evaluations and the most dreaded for him ‘team building’ element…

I came here late Tuesday night and spent the day today living it up in Camrose…

it all started with a morning trip to Jiffy Lube to get my oil changed…   $234 later I was all set to go…  when the farmer finally was able to check his texts and see what I spent on an oil change his comment was ‘well they saw you coming’…  which I interpreted to mean that I possibly did not get the best deal on my oil change…

next, I headed to the Starbucks for some free WiFi…  I had a few things I had to take care of…  now, being a farmer myself, I am not accustomed to hanging out in Starbucks for free WiFi…  quite the crew in there… every conversation was solving the worlds problems… and a few other ‘writers’ or ‘students’ with their laptops…

I found it difficult to concentrate and after two Venti Americano Mistos I was shaking so badly I could barely close my laptop and pack it up to get to my vehicle…  (which, by the way, purred like a kitten with the top end oil pumping through it)

after a lovely soak in the hot tub by myself, I had a shower and got ready… luckily my brother and his wife live close so I headed to Sherwood Park to go out for supper…  just a 45 minute drive but when you are this bored it was really lovely…

now, as I wait for the farmer to return as it’s nearing 10 pm, I eagerly await his return and our night out in Camrose… which most likely will entail laying in bed watching sports highlights…

it is moments like these that I think to myself…  ‘is this what it’s like to be married to a rockstar?… and if so, sign me up’
