This is Margaret. I fear that summer is over before it began, and 99% of summer was the anticipation. I look forward to stuff and then once it comes, I’m sad because it seems over. Apparently I suffer from anticipation depression, but maybe that is just one of my neuroses.
Part I: Trip
We had a destination wedding and spent a week in Colorado. I personally love Colorado. If you ever want to visit somewhere really cool, please look up the Great Sand Dunes https://www.nps.gov/grsa/index.htm. It’s mountains and desert and being there makes you feel like you know something someone else doesn’t. We eventually made our way down to Pagosa Springs. I watched my little brother in law, the ring bearer from my wedding, get married. That made me feel really old and I had a huge case of leaky eye. Weddings make me CRY y’all, especially ones where I’m kind of a mama bear. After the ceremony I danced a lot and drank lots of champagne. Weddings are my favorite.
Part II Meow Wolf
On the way from Pagosa Springs to Albuquerque, we stopped in Santa Fe. Meow Wolf is an immersive art gallery, and it may be one of the coolest placest I’ve ever been. Besides the Great Sand Dunes. And other places. Still, it was COOL! I could spend an entire page telling you about it, but maybe I just leave you with, try to go sometime. They are also opening one in Denver and Las Vegas this year. Everyone in Santa Fe can’t be wrong.
Part III Remodel
Before we left, we started demolition on the upstairs. We ripped out the carpet and this was the second time I’ve ripped out carpet. The first time was with Casey when she decided to be a slumlord and flip a drug dealer’s house. I was grateful that I didn’t find blood underneath our carpet. One just never knows after that. Aside from no blood under carpet, this experience still isn’t fun. I don’t like breaking up tile. I don’t like pulling out nails of walls. I don’t like crowbars, hammers, drills, but gosh darn it, I’m good at it. This place is going to look amazing. Just not today.
