TrinidadColorado Springs, Colorado

Weather: Clear, sunny, and hot. High of 100 degrees fahrenheit, low of 58 degrees.

It was about midnight that Sir Oisin got too weary and decided to stop the night at the rest area outside of Trinidad, Colorado. They laid back their seats and took a nap, cuddling together, under a blanket with pillows. It was actually more comfortable than expected. They woke back up around 2:30 am, and headed home. It was silly that they had to stop since they only had two more hours to go on the journey, but when one is tired and driving they should always stop and rest. They arrived home around 4:30 am. They were exhausted from their epic trip around New Mexico.

The Prince actually for once awoke before Sir Oisin, as Cian thought he heard the kids playing in the yard and was very excited to go see them. They weren’t there, as they were at their mom’s house. Lord Jesse was awake however, and Sir Oisin with the Prince got to catch up with him on what they missed over the week. Sir Oisin showed Lord Jesse the sage he collected and he was determined to figure out the type of sage – best calculation they came up with was Silver Sage. Even between 8 and 9 am, the temperatures were swiftly climbing to over 100 degrees it felt to Sir Oisin. Sir Oisin was slow moving, procrastinating on unhooking the trailer. He made the Prince Honey Bunches of Oats, organic milk, and orange juice for breakfast while Oisin finished the Prince’s uneaten Turkey sub from last night. Oisin planned out his day as he had a look scheduled around 2 pm, then work with the delivery companies afterwards through the evening. He needed income to flow again. Today was payday and couldn’t have arrived with better timing as he was dirt broke yesterday. They barely had enough gas to make it home. (Which wasn’t really a concern since they were to be paid today -they just didn’t have enough for a camp site to stay in Santa Rosa and didn’t feel like boondockin’ it)

They were both sunburnt and exhausted from their incredible trip. Today was clear blue skies, climbing from the 90’s to 100’s, and a lot on their plate for the day. After showers and baths, Oisin caught up with blogs while the Prince played, he unhooked the trailer, and both the adventurers Oisin and his son Cian wrapped up sage into smudge stick bundles. They cleaned out the car, got ready for work, and headed out for the Look.

The Prince started experimenting with his kindle to make his own video blogs. He started out with silly talk, creating his own language and then asked dad what language was he speaking? Dad asked the Prince, and he didn’t know. He wanted dad to know. Dad asked the Prince what he was going to do today – and the Prince said “going to work” and said “doing deliveries”. Dad reminded him they would be doing insurance claim investigations and photos as well today. The Prince ended his video with a “Goodbye! thanks for watching Cian’s videos.”

They arrived around 2 pm to do their insurance investigation claim, the Prince hung out in the car. There was minor damage on the client’s car’s bumper, not something Sir Oisin would have contacted an insurance company for. He took photos, made notes, verified the VIN, and uploaded the photos to the insurance company. 15 minutes worth of work, but a nice $20 payment for the work.

They then drove around to kid’s clothing shops looking for belts for the Prince. His shorts were falling down. They finally went to Ross Dress for Less and found a 2 for 1 special. There were good prices on shoes, as Prince Cian’s shoes were wearing out, Dad bought him a new pair, and a 6 pack of socks. The Prince was very happy especially about his first belt.

In the parking lot the Prince pleaded for a break at Starbucks to get a Chai Volcano (Chai Creme Frappacino). Dad said not yet, they had deliveries to start as it was time to clock into the app. The Prince continued to make videos on his kindle, silly tunes and poo poo songs, “Hello everybody. here is poo poo time. Thanks for watching this video.” followed by song, and then a “bye! thanks for watching my video.” Dad thought Cian is such a character and comedian. The temperature actually only reached 96 degrees, so much better than the 109 degrees Fahrenheit it was in New Mexico.

In processing videos, Oisin noticed that he was having struggles breathing and panting when walking places and doing deliveries. He would not have heard it had it not been for the video chronicles. It was another wake up call that he really needs to do something about his health. He also stated he needed to get back to his spirituality, doing daily meditation and rites each day if he can. He needs to cut out fast food and soda. He fell off the band wagon again during this trip having Coca-Cola and other soda – for the flavor, the energy, and quenching his thirst. It must come to an end.

Shift One – Company One – 3:30-5:30 pm

They headed off to their first delivery, Bingo Burger . They found parking out front and was able to walk in. Downtown usually is such a difficult venture to find parking. They did their drop off and headed off to Boston Market for their second delivery of the day.

Their third delivery was Burger King. Oisin hates the fast food chains, many of the customers ordering delivery don’t tip and the quality of food is often crap, though tasty and addictive for sure. Food delivery is a luxury, not something to be cheap about. The driver goes through gas, wear and tear on their vehicle, and spends a lot of time doing the pickup and drop-off. Of course this lousy customer didn’t tip. Oisin thought it was very crappy, especially since he had to hike up to the 3rd floor to do the delivery. He marked that individual on his list of customer’s to refuse delivery for. Of course as they entered Burger King the Prince wanted something from there. Dad said no, and gave him a Burger King paper crown. They had a break after the delivery before the next, so they drove to Taco Bell for dinner. They did a new pickup at “The Bench” off Nevada. It was a nice location, but busy place to find parking.

Shift Two – Company One – 5:30-7:30 PM

They had another lengthy break between deliveries and stopped off at home to change out laundry, do some dishes, and then headed off to the Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza near Trader Joe’s. During the drive the Prince went into a trance … dancing with his hands, doing a very artistic dance. Dad was impressed. The Prince claimed the music took over his body and he had to do that ritual dance. It was beautiful. Dad thought he would be a dancer in the future. This has happened several times with the Prince over the last two years. The Prince seems to know motion, moves, sword fighting styles, ninja moves, and motion dances without having been taught them. Impressive, Oisin thought.

They then had two double orders to pick up at Bird Dog BBQ.

SHIFT THREE – COMPANY ONE – 7:30-9:30 PM

After delivery Oisin was hoping for a break but was sent to Red Robin , and even before he could drop those items off was sent to Qdoba Mexican Eats . Sir Oisin was so tired, he only had a half hour to go. They did have a nice surprise of free fries from the waittresses at Red Robin – that was a tasty treat to the day. The last delivery of the day left the instructions “place food by door, ring doorbell, and run. Dog will bark.” Sir Oisin did as instructed, ran and heard the dog bark. It was funny.

They finished up that Qdoba order, then ran to Red Robin , and a double order at Old Chicago . They delivered those as the last delivery for the day signing out at 10 pm. Way too late. They went and got drinks as well as Ice Cream from Kum n’ Go convenience store, drove home, and called it a night.

Mileage: Total work Miles: 105 (95.22 delivery (26.39 drop-off miles), , 9.65 look miles , 6 miles personal = 111.
