Hi all. I'm moving this coming weekend. I just sent email to a BIG list of friends and family, but if you don't get it and think you have a reason to know where I live, please leave a comment or email me directly. :)
So it turns out that having Twitter send my tweets to Facebook is keeping me more in touch with people I care about but who don't use Twitter. For example, I get comments from my dad and step-mom all the time! It's like a wonderful gift, this crazy Facebook thing. Except for the whole confusing interface thing. :p I didn't expect that at all.
Also, I have another cold. At least it's just a cold and doesn't seem to be bronchitis AGAIN. Still, I'd be ok having less winter in my winter now. Please?
This is going to be a busy month for me. Lots of busy evenings and fun stuff to do on the weekends. Plus I'm going to be moving (changing towns, not states or time zones) during April, so I need to start thinking about getting boxes and going through my stuff again. At least I don't have all that much. Not like when I left Colorado!
Also, the second, happy late birthday to Kilsey and happy early on time! birthday to Gina! I miss you both.
Wish I had today off. :p I have to vacuum the apartment, plastic the window in my bedroom and make chili (I can do that while working though). And apparently make sure my laptop is backed up so that I will not cry if it doesn't boot up again (it's mostly backed up -- not my music though).
The middle of August started a very busy bunch of weeks in my life.
This past weekend, Dad and Cathy were in town. It was great to see them again. I'm looking forward to my trip to NJ to visit with them in September.
This coming weekend, Jenn and I are having a small dinner gathering to celebrate our birthdays (one day apart).
The weekend after that is Labor Day weekend, which is near my SIL's birthday. She's asked if I want to do a joint birthday thing over the weekend, so I have to figure out the logistics of that still. James has to work on Saturday and Monday, so he may get a Get Out of Family Stuff Free card. ;)
The weekend after that, we're all going camping! I haven't been camping in forever, but looking over the place, I think it'll be a lot of fun.
Then it's my weekend in NJ. James and I are heading down on Thursday. We hope to have dinner with Bill and Drew while we're there.
We were driving to Westford today for work and the road was full of idiots. One in particular tried to kill us.
He was on a side road to the right of me and decided that it was the perfect time to cross left across my (empty) lane of traffic into the very full/no space for him lane of traffic. Except, well, he didn't look. And I saw there was no space for him and decided not to slow down (he didn't really seem like he was going to do anything)... but then he went.
I had to swerve around him - in front of his truck - and also avoid the full lane of traffic to my left. I managed not to hit anyone. And he didn't hit anyone. But damn, it was really close.
Then a woman in a minivan thought she should try to basically do the same thing, but she stopped before she got into the road.
Assholes. All of them.
Thank goodness I learned good manoeuvring skills along the way.
