The Getaway

You all figured out pretty quickly that I wasn't updating the site this past weekend. It's true: after several weeks of frustrating circumstances -- car death being the most obvious example -- I needed time off. A few friends and I left town for a couple of days to outrun our problems.

It worked!

A few memories:
  • Three girls, one bed.
  • "That Pennsylvanian is driving erotically."
  • Matching Twister shirts = lots of unanticipated attention.
  • Running in the rain.
  • Piggy-back ride up the escalator (scary!).
The only bad part of the trip was that it had to end.

I had hoped that some of the glow would rub off on my Monday so I could ease into the week. Instead, I found two dead bugs in my second cup of coffee after setting it down for only a moment. They were probably on a kamikaze mission to sabotage my day.

Too bad. I'm a hard egg to crack, and I'm determined that even this bill-paying, lesson-planning, exam-writing, grading-grading-grading day is going to be a good one.

How was your weekend?

Haha, this weekend was one of my favorite memories. I'm sad it ended, but am thankful it happened. I needed it so desperately and I love each and every one of you! :) So glad we had this together!

Gotta love things that come at you like that to try and ruin your day way to be strong! =]
