Today I drove the long route to the school and back. 1 1/2 hours in the car. Yeah, to people who drive all the time that doesn’t sound like much, but it wiped me out. I haven’t driven more than like a half hour or so since moving to Iowa.
The reason that I drove it was to make sure I knew it for Monday morning. The long route is the way I am gonna drive to school because the “quicker” route during rush hour will take even longer and drive my blood pressure thru the roof. I’ve driven to Waukee at 7:15am before and there was traffic, any closer to the 80/35 entrance just becomes a total mess. So the long route will serve me fine. I will still leave by 6:45am to get there by 8, just in case. If I get there ridiculously early, I will switch to 7am departure.
Lunch today was HuHot with my good friend Drew. HuHot happens to be one of my favorite restaurants and it turned out to be one of his too. It was good food and good company. It was good to see him again, we don’t get together nearly often enough.
Tomorrow’s lunch is to be with my friend Abbie. She owes me a lunch from when I worked at Iowa Realty. It’s all good. I wonder where we will end up going???? It’ll be good to see her too, she is a good friend as well.
The house still closing on Friday, everything is set. Happiness will be never paying rent again.
Still not anxious or excited about school starting. it’s just gonna happen. I don’t understand why I am not one or the other, it’s weird. I really should be freaking out like every other time, but nope, I am chill. I choose to take this as a good thing though, at least I am not making myself sick with anxiety.
Teresa is still in Boston, she got a RedHat backpack from the conference. Oo Ah at your convenience. Better than what she normally comes home with from her travels.
She will be home late Thursday. The dogs and I really miss her. And her work wants her to travel even more 😦 Oh well, I guess I’m gonna have to live with her going on travel a lot.
Both of our computers have cameras built in, so Skype for the win. I get to chat with her every night while she is gone. So I guess its not as bad as it used to be.
