My God, I kind of really want to hear this. Can you YouTube it?!
Friends in town this weekend, Detroit Tigers vs. Yankees tickets, other big-exciting-life-thing, and heading to Michigan (Wisconsin, too) on Monday!
Oh, and Happy (early) Birthday, Powa Gowa! Safe travels across the pond!
I woke up this morning mistakenly believing that it was Wednesday. Imagine my disappointment when my excitement over being only a day away from a short flight home came to a screeching halt. Seriously *record scratch*.
This trip home is to be my last hurrah with family and Michigan friends before school is in full swing. (I will likely have time in August to make a trip home, but my usual doubling up on trips home in the summer is becoming a thing of the past.) It’s the first time I’ve seen my whole family in a little over 5 months. Sadly, it will be a short one - only 3 full days - and I have so much to cram into those 3 short days, but I am up to the challenge.
I’ve already got a few things planned - trips to stores I can’t go to here, meals with friends, a probable 5k (part of the same event as my originally scheduled 25k), a mini engagement celebration/college roomie reunion, drinking craft beers on the deck with my family, acting ridiculous with my sisters, celebrating my momma and grandma. See, lots of love and happiness - I have plenty to be excited about.
Things that happened in the past week:
Phew, what an amazing couple of days! It was a rough foray back into the work-a-day world this morning after saying goodbye to RB as he left for the airport, but things are looking up. In just 21 days I’ll be on Christmas vacation*, the inspection everyone has been stressed about at work will be done and over tomorrow, and getting some running back into the mix with the beginning of training will provide a nice sense of routine again.
*Being that it’s after Thanksgiving, there are Christmas tree lots on every corner here in NYC, and I’m only 21 days out from Christmas vacation, I’ve started the Christmas music rotation. I LOVE Christmas music!
