Last night was the calm before the storm. Today, the hurricane hits.
Not in a bad way...just going to be very busy and out of pocket for a couple weeks. Today after work, I meet up with some of the old Jboo gang for some dinner at Vino's and a Keith Urban concert in LR. Late tonight after the show, I'll be packing up for the events of the next 10 days. Friday around noon, we leave for the sprawling metropolis of Mountain Home, AR. I've been there twice I think, should be fun. I'm really looking forward to getting together with a bunch of the guys, something I don't really ever get to do in Conway (I don't have any good friends here, really). We'll be there to watch and support Ross and Leah as they join our ever-shrinking club of married friends. I say ever-shrinking mostly because it seems that, for every friend that gets married, another two get divorced. It's a sad thing.
After the wedding Saturday, we hop back in the bug, put the convertible top down, and drive to Birmingham, AL for a night at the local Holiday Inn. By noon Sunday, we hope to be on the beach in Navarre, FL bumming around and doing nothing in particular. My hope is that I can just sit around, read, have a beer or two, drink in some sun and get some time to let my thoughts melt away.
The last few weeks have been incredibly stressful...hoping this little trip will help. If not, I'll hold out for next year. Hoping that perhaps we can do Europe, the Bahamas, or some other foreign, exotic destination next time around.
For now, I'll sit here and blog at work, avoid making phone calls, drink coffee, secretly play Castle Age on Facebook while my boss is away and look out the window. I think I've zoned out like 5 times today, and I haven't even been here an hour. Caught myself drooling once...thankfully only Mark was watching.
Le sigh...back to it.
