The boys had an awesome time at golf and tennis camp. They are tanner and blonder and worn out, but happy.
I did some fun shopping with mom, got to cook with my little sister, fix my niece's gorgeous hair, argue the semantics of a properly drawn sun with my nephew, absconded with some custom made pottery from my Tom, drank a bottle of wine with my girlfriend and discovered my BIL's sense of humor.
Traffic. Good heavens. It took 30 minutes to get out of Arlington today, and another 45 to get out of the metroplex. How the heck did I ever live there? I 35 has got to be on one of the rings of hell.
Also, the heat. The heeeeaaat. The humidity. The freakin' mosquitoes. Good heavens above. My skin may dry out on the caprock, but at least my hair looks good. ;)
I slipped an fell (on my face!) on Mom and Tom's deck this morning and I'm a mass of aches and pains. Man, I feel old. Knee and shoulder are not working properly, even after having been iced down after it happened.
The boys and I listened to Deathly Hallows on the way home. Six hours of listening to Jim Dale, and we're not even to the 500 page camping trip. Long winded much, JK?
I like Jim's character voices, but his narration voice drives me cuh-razy. Also, his Hermione voice. "Harrrrryyyyyyyyy!." Good gracious. Do people talk like that?
Six hours in a car. I stopped in a drive through for dinner and the boys ran in for a pit stop, but I realized once I was home that I never got out of the car, from Arlington to Amarillo.
We got a new mattress while I was away, apparently. The Carrie and Nolan bed saga (with a MPAA rating of PG) deserves a post of its own. For now, I'm going to say, "Um... no."
I took two Advil Pm about 30 minutes ago (so I could sleep through the aches and pains from my idiotic fall) and it's like typing with gloves on. Lots of backspacing.
It's good to be home. I'd say it was great to be in my own bed... but this ain't it.
Since I'm about to crash face first into the laptop, (twice in one day on my face would be a bit much, methinks) I'll bid everyone a good night and happy weekend!
