i wish I had more time to write. I keep hoping every day that time will slow down a little and give me a little time to catch up. I see the light at the end of the tunnel, but maybe my perception is off, and it’s miles and miles farther than I ever realized. i’ll keep my eye on that, though, and keep moving, even if it’s two steps forward, one step back.
my vacation in st louis was wonderful. I probably put in a total of eight hours by the pool, and we went to the Arch, and Six Flags, but most importantly, we logged in some serious downtime. lots of girl talk, lots of alcohol, lots of laughing, lots of sleep. God bless Nanner. if it hadn’t been for her, it never would’ve happened. she supplied: one, the car, and two, the radar detector. 🙂 I couldn’t have asked for two better vacation companions. CAL set up a cheap (read: free!) place to crash, and her parents’ apt complex boasts a swimming pool, so we got in some invaluable sun time. it was absolutely wonderful. the best part of six flags was the waterpark, on the innertube ride. we must’ve spent 3 hours riding the river. the vacation was, I must say, a rousing success.
ok. now, about my damn car. so I buy a house, and before I even make the first damn payment, it dies. horribly, certainly, dies. so I bought a house on july 24, and I bought a car on august 28. but i’ll have to make it work. i’ll just have to. I have no choice. i’ll draw on my own strength, that “deep well” that MW spoke about. maybe he felt a little better about setting me off by saying that, but it’s the truth. I do have a deep well of strength. i’m rollin with it. ok, I have no other choice, but i’m making the best of it. ok, I did have another choice, but I didn’t opt for it. I could’ve ran to tom and had him bail me out. but I didn’t. and I won’t.
