we've been up here for two and a half days and i. can't. effing. breathe.
this is so lame. it's like the reverse of hanging out on a smoggy day - except that here, i can't draw a deep breath without it hurting my chest because there is no damn smog.
i know it's probably a combination of the clean air and the elevation, but this is ridiculous.
in other news, it's lovely up here. the weather is in the 70s with clear, blue skies. oh, and i took my friend venn's advice and made the hub stop at schat's bakery for lunch yesterday. although i'm a little cornfuzzled as there was a different schat's bakery in bishop on our way here. the hub says they're not related, but that's confusing as all hell. whatever. we'll be stopping in the bishop version on our way home tomorrow.
we also drove by the site of one of the japanese concentration camp-type things used during WWII. there's a museum there, and i'm hoping it'll be open tomorrow, even though it's a holiday, so that we can stop and learn. we both found it interesting that the existence of these things has been rather buried - never learned about it in history class. did you? i'm a little embarrassed to admit that i only found out about them while reading danielle steel's silent honor. yeah.
anyway, we've done a whole lot of nothing - hell, it's 3:00 in the afternoon and we're all sitting around just chillin' in our pajamas. except, of course, for the hub's die-hard grandfather and uncle, who got up at the ungodly hour of 5:00 this morning to hit up a nearby creek for some fishing. the wind is blowing at about 30 mph this weekend, which is one good reason for us not to have gone. another is that the hub packed his entire fishing box and then realized that his poles weren't in it. whoops.
the bean did well on the long, 4.5 hour drive up here on friday. cross your fingers for us that she takes a nice, long nap on the way home tomorrow.
