It was very nice to wake up to 52° weather this morning. We made our way to Blaine, WA - which is right up by the border - where Chuck disembarked and hung out at the truck stop, while I went across the border to Burnaby, BC, to deliver the rest of this load. It was an hour wait to get through customs on the way back into the U.S. Just about 45 minutes ago we got our next load, which picks up tomorrow in Lewiston, ID (just like the last time), only this one has two drops as well: Tulsa, OK, then finishing off in Halfmoon, NY. I was hoping to have been dispatched earlier than I was, this way I might have been able to visit with my niece and sister-in-law.
While I was in Blaine, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things for the roast I'll make in a couple days. I ended up also stopping into a place called The Hot Spot (wings are their specialty, in case you hadn't guessed) and got an order of Garlic Wings, then over to an "Asian Fusion" café called Tangerine Dream and picked up an order of Kim-Chee (the authentic stuff). At the moment it is taking an enormous amount of discipline and self-control to not eat any until I get this blog post finished first. Sure, I'm already late in posting this, but I'd rather get this out to you before I eat, since once I ate, I would become full, satisfied, then want a nap... then would prolong this post even longer than it already is (you get my point). Well, my self-control has held out as long as it could... now it's time to eat!
