I had mentioned my grandmother earlier. She has since passed away and the memorial service is September 11. I decided to get back in time for that.
Yes, I am missing the Tennessee/Oregon game, but I'm getting to the season opener this weekend in Knoxville so I'm not going to miss out on all the excitement. Just on the bigger game.
I have some time on my hands during the day here. My friend, Sam, works like a normal grown up, so I do exciting stuff like job hunt, study for the GRE, and waste
Actually studying for the GRE is new. I am just reminded how much I hate analogies. And I don't use the word 'hate' very often. I'm also dreading the math section. I was good at math, a decade ago, when I still actually studied it.
I'm not exaggerating when I say a decade ago. GRE math is not the calculus I took my senior year of high school.
I've also had some fun. One thing Sam and I do well together is shop. We shop well, we shop a lot, and we shop cheap. Yesterday a trip to Burlington landed her a huge haul of stuff. I've been picking up a few things here and there.
I have to keep reminding myself that I only have 5 extra pounds in my big suitcase. The good news: I'm flying home on Southwest, which allows you to check two bags for free. I'm pretty sure that I'll be doing that.
We've also caught a movie, done an all-day pool party, hung with her friends, and checked out a lot of the city.
This weekend we're headed to Tennessee, Knoxville for some football and fun and her small hometown to get a taste for the Labor Day she grew up with. We'll also fit in a few brunches and some white water rafting.
For today, I'm being a bit of a housewife. I've done laundry, packed up the inflatable mattress and cleaned up the kitchen. I may be headed out to run some errands later.
Now excuse me while I get back to my soap operas. (Not really.)
