Leech Lake to the Rescue

It was crazy getting here, but we made it to the cabin for a week of much needed R&R. Yesterday was incredibly hectic, and while I had the day off, I had a massive list of chores to do and a very important meeting I needed to attend in the afternoon. I’ve been warned that stress triggers the Trigeminal Neuralgia, and it kicked my butt really bad yesterday midday. Luckily it was kept at bay during my meetings, and things went really well.

Regardless, by the time I finished my running around, packing, and driving to Leech Lake, I was completely exhausted. We got up here about 11:00pm, and I could not have stayed awake another hour.

The week is crazy – my sister and her family are coming up later today and are brining my aunt with them, I’m headed to see Kathleen Edwards at the 10,000 Lakes Festival in Detroit lakes. Tomorrow my brother and his family come, as does my wife’s sister. Monday, my wife and I need to head back to the Cities to attend the funeral of the mother of a friend of the family, and we’ll bring my mom back up with us. By Tuesday we should be locked down for the remainder of the week.
Hence, look for concert reviews, fishing reports, and more tall tales from the north woods in this space over the next week. The quest for enough fish for a fish fry begins with trolling Rapalas tonight. Let the games begin…
