Yes, “break” is the operative word in that phrase and very much needed. It’s been a very productive (and because of it) busy year so far. I can’t believe I’m just over a month away from being done with my first year of Graduate School!! But this post isn’t about grad school, only what I’m going to do on my BREAK. Most is relaxing and fun, some is work/school related.
Saturday – clean the apartment and pack for a week in Austin.
Sunday – *Spring Forward with the time* Pack up the car and head to Austin!! (I might leave on Saturday if I can get it all done early enough). Crawfish time at Sam’s Boat (let me know if you’d like to join us).
Monday – Do a little clean up at my parent’s house and do a little research on permits for our builders. No, they haven’t started yet. 😦
Tuesday – Go chill out and rest with Cathy T at an undisclosed location. Hopefully, the sun will be out and I can do a little basking in it.
Wednesday – Trish’s birthday. Not sure what’s on the docket for that day so I’m leaving it all opened up for family.
Thursday – If something happens to our plans on Tuesday, we’ll go today. If not, I need to spend a little time at the UT library for my Research Techniques class. They have at least one thing I need that only exists in about 9 libraries around the world. In the evening, I’ll be getting together with “the girls”. It’s gotta happen! 😀
Friday – I can’t remember what I’m thinking about for Friday. Maybe nothing at all yet.
Saturday – St. Patrick’s day will be spent at the same bat time at the same bat place. If you know what I’m talking about (or call/text me or Cathy T, we’ll tell you) and want to join us, COME ON!! Be ready to start early, though. 🙂
Sunday – pack it all up and head back to Huntsville. Wow, that went by fast and furious but it was a really great week! (yes, that’s what I’m predicting I’ll say.)
Yes, it looks like a full week but for the most part, all this stuff only occupies a few hours of each day so don’t think my dance card is all full without you. There are SO many people I want to see and visit with that have a less flexible schedule due to work or kids. Please call me and tell me when you’re free and I’ll make sure we can visit during that time, even on days that seem like Tuesday or Wednesday.
I really want this Break to be kind of epic. But not with activities so much – more time with friends. Lord knows, I can’t afford a whole bunch of activities and I have NO desire to spend a whole lot of time in the SXSW scene. I guess it’s because I’m not sure when I’ll be back in Austin and I want to make the most of every moment I can with all my friends. The next time may not be until late June or even July!
Love you, mean it!
