rant: mom of friend who moved away this summer, without letting the girls say goodbye, claiming they were coming for camp in 2 weeks (which we signed up specifically for the August camp because this family wanted august), has now canceled her daughter's spot in the camp. dad took a job in MSP and it is a legit move, they sold their house faster than they dreamed of and it's all above board, EXCEPT dang it, no closure on relationship between our girls. This is the one neighborhood friend that Leah had that I liked. Leah Lu is of course all bent out of shape and I'm trying hard to put a brave face on it. But dang. And mom emailed instead of calling to let me know.
rain again today.
I liked cider before cider became a thing. But cider is not happy with my tummy. I'm considering not drinking alcohol, period, until my Perkins loan is paid off. I'm sad to say that probably if both of us give up buying beer out with friends (and get a soda instead) and buying a 12 pack of beer a week, well then I think we might be able to pay it off before the end of 12 months. I'm tired of living in my grad school house, paying my grad school loans and seeing money go out the door that I spent in 2005, plus some.
Gaye, can't wait to hear how your date goes. Also Gaye and Lisa: I'm coming to Denver in September. I totally hate national meetings because, well I'm insecure and feel like my research is never where I want it to be, and . So hey, I think I'm available for dinner/lunch. I'll report back when I know more.
I slept in running clothes last night.
