Albuquerque, New Mexico

After weeks of anticipation the first day of our Las Vegas vacation started today.  It is not really a vacation…Randy has to do business everyday but John and I get to tag along so it is a vacation for us! 

We are traveling about 4 to 5 hours everyday – that way Randy can visit with existing and potential customers.  We need to be in Las Vegas by Sunday evening for a meeting Randy has to attend.

We wanted to leave this  morning by 9:00am at the latest but I woke up at 4am with another one of my headaches – it was really bad.  I took some ofAlbuquerque 002 my new medication and “iced” my head - my new medication is EXCELLANT but it makes me drowsy.  We finally left Amarillo by  noon and made it straight to Albuquerque in less than 4 hours.  John was great and did not whine at all.  He liked looking out the windows at the big  trucks and we were constantly looking for a moving train.  After that lost his interest he played with his I-Pod and watched some train videos.  I was surprised he did not nap at all! Albuquerque 008Albuquerque is really pretty with some on the mountains.  It doesn’t seem as cold as Amarillo…of course there is no wind.

This plain looking aluminum cactus is one of my favorite things about Albuquerque.  When Mom and I came here the first time (May 2009-when Dad was air-lifted here for heart surgery) we arrived at night and this cactus was lit-up.  It was so beautiful!  It glowed all sorts of color…it was so dark and the cactus really stood out!  I tried to talk Randy into going out there tonight but he said….”uhhh no way!”Albuquerque 010When we got to Albuquerque we checked into the hotel and Randy went to visit customers.  The customers were pleasantly surprised to see him and they were very gracious!

Randy was planning on seeing another customer but that customer only makes appointments with distributors at 2 or 3 in the morning!   How bizarre and strange and weird is that??

After the visits we unloaded our truck and went to eat.  After that we had to go to Wal-Mart to get some water and juice.  Now we are going to bed!  Tomorrow we are going to our most favorite place to eat breakfast – LePeep!  Then we are off to Gallup, New Mexico, Winslow Arizona, and stay the night in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Here’ some other pictures…

Albuquerque 003Randy’s Expedition has a hard drive in the stereo.  It is really cool but you have to rip the cd’s one at a time.  That is what I did all the way from Amarillo to AlbuquerqueAlbuquerque 004Lots of Starburst were consumed!  Randy’s favorite is red, John’s is yellow, mine is orange, and we all like pink!Albuquerque 005   I will be back in Arizona!

I can't believe you are still up. I thought about you several times today, but knew you would be busy trying to get out of town. So sorry you had another headache,but glad your new medicine worked. Call when you have a minute. I didn't know there was a La' Peeps in Albuquerque. Eat something good for me.
