Long Labor Day weekend

I’m already looking forward to my long Labor Day weekend, which starts tomorrow. I have a 6:30 AM flight to LAX, followed by a 3 hour-ish drive up to Morro Bay. I’ll be spending just about 3 full days with Dan and Megan and I can’t wait. The last time I saw them was nearly a year ago.

I still have a lot to do. The lawn could use some mowing, especially in the front yard. I don’t know if I’ll get to that today. I have a bunch of laundry to do, as well as some other minor errands and chores. And I have to get up at about 4:30 tomorrow morning. At least I don’t have to stay up late to watch the Yankee game tonight. The game is on at 1:05 PM ET.

I’m back home early in the morning on Tuesday and I’ve taken Tuesday off, so that I can rest and get the rest of my errands and chores done. More than likely I’ll cut the grass on Tuesday. I don’t think I’ll have time to do it this evening.

Incidentally, I upgraded my flight to LAX tomorrow, but hadn’t yet upgraded my flight back. But I just had a bunch of miles dumped into my Mileage Plus account so I’m going to upgrade that flight as well. I was originally planning on using some upgrade credits for that flight, but I’ll save those for shorter flights.
