listening to: Eve 6, “Open Road Song”
I love this song. It reminds me of living in Harris.
It’s looking ominous outside this morning. Big dark clouds, and windy. Thunder too. It’s very odd, because we rarely get rain in the mornings…it’s much, much more of a late afternoon, sub-tropical thing. Oh well. I managed to make it in from the parking lot without getting wet, so all is well.
I had a very relaxing weekend in Austin with Leila and Brian. Yesterday we watched the Tech game, which was televised all the way over here in Texas. (Yay!) The team played like crap, but at least we won. CNNSI probably said it simplest and best: “It’s a start: No. 10 Georgia Tech unimpressive in opener, but wins.” Oh, I get so nervous watching them play…I had to distract myself with Leila’s puzzle book yesterday to avoid too much yelling at the TV. Everybody’s saying this is Tech’s year. The New York post ranked us number one yesterday. Wow.
Leila and Brian are so funny. Most of the time I don’t remember that they’re married; they just seem like really good friends. They tease and pick at each other, but never really get mad. They make each other laugh, which I love to see, especially when it’s Brian laughing, because half the time he’s so serious. but that’s what it’s supposed to be like, right? To be married to someone who is also your best friend.
And here it is, Monday morning again. Considering that I’m taking off Thursday and Friday to go to Atlanta, and Monday is a paid holiday, I have only 10 days of work left — three days this week, four next, three the week after that. Then two days to pack, and I’m on the road again. Except this time I’ll be heading west. Somehow, the summer managed to fly by even though I haven’t really done anything but sit on the couch watching baseball. (Of course that’s not entirely true, but it kind of feels true.) It’s been quiet. Even more, it’s been good.
