Hell of a Week

Ever have “one of those days”? I’m definitely coming down off of “one of those weeks.” And apologies all around for dropping off the map during it. But between the car breaking, busting my ass on a long week at work, and various time-intensive projects and snafus, I’ve been pretty short on time.

Today was good, though. It’s about time I had a nice, relaxing day. My folks were in town for my great aunt’s 80th birthday, so we took the birthday girl out to lunch. It was nice to see my aunt again. I’ve never been particularly close to her, but she’s a sweet woman, and incredibly sharp. It was also good to see the folks again. I’m re-learning just how easy it can be to get wrapped up in work at the expense of neglecting important people in one’s life.

After lunch, dropped my aunt off and went out to the range. I’ve been wanting to try out the Spokane Rifle Club range for awhile, and with Dad in town and the weather a gorgeous 80 degrees, it seemed like the perfect day for it.

So Mom, Dad, Becky and I headed out there with my Sig-556 and my Mosin-Nagant, neither of which I’ve really shot for lack of a good range. The Sig’s proving to be fun, but the BUIS on it suck. The Mosin, on the other hand, is a LOT of fun. And I’m pretty decent with it, too. My first 5 shots were on paper and my second five were not only on paper but decently grouped.

Tomorrow, Mom, Dad, and I are off to breakfast before they head out of town, which will be great. Even though my parents DO get up at 4am every morning, so breakfast with them will mean me rolling my lazy but out of bed by 8am or so. Which honestly, is probably a good idea anyway, since I’m trying to be more of a morning person. (Not an easy task when my biological clock seems to think that “bed time” falls somewhere around 4am.)

And on that note, I think it’s reading and sleep-attempting time.
