A Quick Wrap-Up
Since I have been MIA for the past few weeks, I figured I would write a little wrap-up of what has been going on. After tomorrow, things should be back to their normal boringness, so I'm sure I'll be around a lot more!
Our trip to Pennsylvania was great. The weather was so nice almost the entire time we were there. We did a LOT of shopping at the outlets, which was always fun especially since I didn't have to pay for it because it was my birthday present from my parents. I got a really nice rain coat, some shorts and capris for the summer, and some new shoes. We ate lots of yummy food from up there that I miss like shoefly pie and egg custard and chicken pot-pie. We got to visit with my family, the boys got to go skeet shooting one day which they enjoyed, and overally it was a good time. However, when we got home last money at 4:45 in the afternoon, our luggage was nowhere to be found. All three of our suitcases were missing in action. They told us they might come in on the 10 pm flight, so since we live close to the airport, we stopped by to see if they were there and no luck. So I got to go to work on Tuesday with no makeup on! Fun stuff! Luckily, they came in on the 10:30 flight that morning, and Austin's mom and brother picked them up and Austin met them Tuesday night to get our suitcases.
That started off the week as a long one! I had to do a lot of overtime to meet this deadline, and it is for very monotonous, tedious work. Luckily, I've been able to do the overtime from home which helps so I don't have to spend exorbitant amounts of time holed away in my office at work and at least could do my work in my pjs and in front of the TV! Then this weekend, Austin's friend decided at the last minute to fly in Friday night from Lubbock. He has been trying to move back to this area for some time now, and finally got a job offer on Friday to come back. So he should be back by the end of the month which is awesome. However, we spent the better part of the weekend running around looking at apartments in the area for him. Needless to say I didn't get the rest I needed or wanted!
The good news is that we drove out to the car dealership on Saturday to get my CD player replaced (under warranty thank goodness), but ended up not being able to do it. We did however find the exact model, color, style, inside features exactly for what Austin wanted in his SportsTrak so rather than having to wait until the beginning of July like we thought we were going to have to, he will be getting his new truck next Saturday. I can't wait! I liked his truck that he has now, but it's getting old and bumpy and it's big for me to have to drive occasionally. This new one is much nicer, roomier, and smoother, plus smaller so I think it will even fit in the garage which is good in case of storms! ;) I'm looking forward to that next weekend, and I know he is too!
Other than that, not a whole lot else to report....I'm looking forward to some rest although I have no idea when it will come! We are going to get his truck next weekend as I said, so I'm sure that will keep us busy. Then the next weekend is Austin's dad's birthday and Father's Day, my birthday is that week, and then we leave that next weekend for Washington, DC for the wedding. I'm definitely looking forward to that, but that will be a quick and packed weekend as well! :) At least I have no plans so far for the 4th of July long weekend so maybe I'll get some sleep then! LOL. Hope you all had a great weekend, and you'll be hearing from me more soon!
