It looks as if I haven't written in my blog in more than a handful of days.  It's been a busy weekend and I'll try to catch you up day by day.

On Friday, about 3/4 of the staff went into town after work.  They have live music on Friday and Saturday nights at a place called Mahogany Grill.  So, we all went and danced quite a bit.  A few drank, but on the most part, it was just good ole clean fun/dancing.  I think it was good for us all to get out and enjoy each others company outside of the ranch.  It left us all pretty energized the next couple of days.  I believe we're doing a "take two" this coming Saturday. 

On Saturday, we all headed up for the Saturday evening steak ride and campfire.  Not sure if you remember, but at this point we still had the families with children going through cancer.  It was the most sentimental campfire we have had all summer.  Ben, a father of one of the little boys with cancer, wrote a poem that touched my heart.  They went around in a circle and said a little something about each of us and gave us presents to remember them by.  We gave them the blankets that we made a few weeks ago.  Very heart warming evening!!  Kate, Corbett, Jake and I played Phase 10 (card game) for an hour or so afterwards.

Sunday morning I got up to start turning over the ranch and ran right smack dab into all the families getting on their bus to head home.  That's when I lost it.  Everyone started hugging goodbye and saying how much they had needed and was thankful for the stay.  I had gotten close to a few of the families and it really tugged at my heart as we waved goodbye to the bus as they pulled away. 

Sunday evening we welcomed the new guests, which consists of only adults.  Everyone seems very nice.  Though, it feels a bit different without children running around.  Will definitely take on a different feel and tone.  A few of us headed up to Steamboat to play trivia at the Tap House.  Stayed for about 2 rounds and then headed out...  Short evening. 

I had dish detail for breakfast and lunch today.  Boy was that a work out!  I have no idea how they cook with those 20 pound pots and pans!  It felt like the chefs would dirty a dish, I would clean it and then they'd dirty it again.  I must have cleaned the slicer 5 times or more during the day.  

I had the evening off, so Kim, Ray and I went for sushi downtown and then just Kim and I went to the movies.  Ray wasn't too excited about going to see "Becoming Jane".  ;o)

Tomorrow, I plan on hiking Hans Peak, sending out my resume to everyone I know and beginning to make a foot stool to take home with the Property Manager Bill (he makes all the furniture on the ranch).  With less than 3 weeks left on the ranch, I'm starting to think about my next steps in my career.  I have been talking to a few people about a potential placement, but you can never be too sure that it'll work out.  Hope to get my resume out to everyone in my address book today, so you'll probably receive it later.  Please keep an eye out for me.  I would truly appreciate it!

Giddy up,
