Hey there

It has come to my attention that folks miss my updates, so I will do my best to oblige in the future. I haven't blogged much over the past few weeks because I've been so caught up in doing nothing that blogging just hasn't made it to the top of my list.

So here's what's been going on in my life. I've spent the last three weeks at home, mostly relaxing, and doing some visiting. I spent several days visiting with the lady friend; this time with her was somewhat bittersweet. The sweetness came from the fact that she is rather wonderful, and I can't think of a more fun activity than making up songs for a musical together while jousting on playground equipment, or teaching her to climb trees, or even riding around in a car with her old Uncle Ralph. The bitterness derived from our knowledge that our time together was all-too-brief.

Last week, Abbie left for Washington, D.C., for a 5 week long internship. She's trying to fiddle with the constitution, which makes my proposed summer of delivering pizza to Kirksville's high society seem somewhat mundane. Hopefully, after she returns in July, she won't take off for another long-term vacation again.

Tomorrow I must head back to Kirksville to rejoin the rat race. My duties will involve classes for 6 hours a week, working for 30 hours a week, sleeping for 35 hours a week, and playing WoW for 97 hours a week. Actually, I'm planning on taking up running again as a summer activity, so hopefully I won't waste away in front of a computer the whole time.

I really enjoyed my time with you as well, dude. I miss you quite a lot. I'd rather be with you than fiddling with the constitution.

We loved having you and will miss you dearly, Honey.

I'm glad you are thinking of running again. It makes my heart glad.
