First and foremost...I have to say Welcome Back to Soupie! My heart was broken when I thought he was leaving, even temporarily, but thankfully he's recognized that blogging isn't what you do, it's who you are! So, he's back. And I'm happy.
Also, I went to the place that I liked today and signed a lease...yay! It's not perfect, but it's perfectly available and is within my price range and I can live with my couch that I love far more than you would think humanly possible, and without a roommate. Awesome. It's pretty big too...over 700 sq/ft and right next to the pool. And the apartment people call the patio the "lanai"...doesn't that sound like a place that needs a margarita machine and some Jimmy Buffett music? Yeah, I thought so too. So, I move in around mid-September which means that I have an ENTIRE MONTH to go to Oregon and just hang around, hiking, biking, rafting, and playing X-box. Life is so good right now. I leave tomorrow for Oregon, and I don't know if I'm more excited to go home, or to rent a car and get to drive...something I rarely get a chance to go these days since I sold my car last summer to move to TVPNM. I have the Jimmy Buffett Box Set, multitudes of 20 oz Diet Cokes, and a box of animal crackers...I'm all set. School doesn't start until Sept. 29th here, and I feel like finally I have enough stuff done that maybe I can actually relax a little bit.
I realize I have been kind of lazy lately in terms of getting some funny news stories posted, so I promise I will be putting some up once I get home and get settled...I looked back through the blog lately and it was like 20 posts all about me, me, me...something I realize might not be quite as interesting as two kids trying to blow up mailboxes who blow themselves up instead. And of course, tomorrow is Wednesday, and you know what that means! Man-flesh!
