June 5, 2008: Last Full Day in Newark, Again

This is a really short week for us in New Jersey.  We got home late on Tuesday night from Florida and it is off to Ohio tomorrow as soon as Dominica gets home from work since I am doing the early shift and am done at a reasonable hour, more or less.  Weird to be gone so much.  We haven’t been traveling for almost six months and suddenly we are all over the place.  Four days in Florida, two days home, two days in Ohio.  Lots and lots of time spent traveling.

Dominica took the BMW into the shop today for its regular checkup.  We had a few things for them to look at.  A water valve seems to be stuck causing the car interior to get a bit warm all of the time unless we run the air conditioning which is annoying so that is being looked at.  Plus oil change and the usual.  BMW has a really good financing offer on 2005 and 2006 models which makes it really tempting to, at the very least, update from our 2004 to a 2005 even if we do nothing else.  It’s possible that we might actually save money in the process depending on our trade-in value.  Hopefully we will have some time to investigate further.

Today is my day at home with Oreo and we both really needed it.  He is completely exhausted after being at daycare from Friday morning until Wednesday night.  That is a lot of time away from home and playing with doggies all of the time.  He is worn out.  He spent pretty much the entire day sleeping.

Tonight is the big laundry night.  Pretty much the only opportunity to get caught up between travels.  We watched a little AppleTV and went to bed at a good time.  Tomorrow is going to be a long day.
