On Friday evening we headed to the cabin for what we expected was going to be a wet and miserable weekend. Â It was but we had a good time.
Oliver was quite sick on Friday morning which meant that Wendy took the day off. Â His daycare has a thing about vomitting kidsâ€¦ Â They picked me up at work and we were off to the lake and got in there in decent time.
I am nursing an incredibly sore hip so I hobbled in and went to bed. Â The boys took Maggi for a long walk and swim in the lake and I was awoken by a wet dog looking to warm up with someone. Â Saturday I picked up Oliverâ€™s flu and felt horrible. Â Wendy delegated the job of packing Oliverâ€™s stuff to Mark and he didnâ€™t pack any socks and underwear for Oliver so off to Regina we went. Â 18km of really soft and sloppy roads were not a lot of fun to drive but we made it to the highway.
The rain kept falling the entire time we were in Regina and the road was a slippery and muddy mess by the time we got back toÂ Cymric. Â It was a long slow drive back to the cabin where I managed to lose control once. Â Not only that but we realized it was going to rain all night and into Sunday.Â
Here is Speck speaking to TED.
So yeah the drive home was brutal. Â The car was covered in mud and it was hard to keep it on the road. Â For those who feel that Saskatchewan should be converting more highways into gravel, I respectfully disagree. Â The sand base of that road makes more slippery then ice when wet. Â So yeah, letâ€™s pave the entire province.Â
