Erica is in the hospital waiting for surgery to have her gall bladder removed. And I am home alone with Autumn. Not that Autumn isn't cute, but I'm happier when Erica is at home.
It has been quite a week here.
I've been doing aerial surveys for big game on the res. No, I don't hunt, never have, probably never will, but it is part of my job.
We've been flying in a nice little helicopter, which, if you haven't done it, is remarkably tiring, even if you don't get air sick.
The plan was to cover about 500,000 acres in 5 days. And then it snowed. So, today was postponed. And then Erica went into the hospital, and an BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) man that the Natural Resources Program works with a lot died of cancer. So I will probably end up working this weekend too.
Oh...I posted some knife stuff over on Hangedmandesigns too.
Erica's surgery should be pretty minor, a couple little holes in the tummy, some R&R, and she should be able to skate in the tournament up near Seattle next month.
She's hard core.
And I love her.
