Hi ya’ll. Hope no one is laboring too hard today. I know I’m not. I posted on Friday and said I would not be back to this board until Tuesday. Yeah right. I’m addicted. I think even amidst my busy weekend, I have managed to check in daily.

I’m going to take it easy today. My brother and I are going to hit the thrift stores. It is 50% off!! I think I’m going to start a new mosaic project and will go look for some materials. I’m motivated after seeing Lurker’s painting and Fire Momma’s kitchen remodeling project. Mine will be on a much smaller scale.

I haven’t talked to my FF since last Thurs. afternoon. He called that day and said they were spiking out and that it would probably be a few days. So this is nothing unexpected. But it’s been four days now, not three, and I sure am itching to talk to him. It looks like he’ll be on the Square Lake fire until his next 2 days of R & R, about a week and a half from now. And then he flies to Maine for his grandmother’s wake. (She passed away about a month ago and they are having services for those that couldn’t be there) I sure hope fire season is over soon. Call me selfish…real selfish…but I’m just dyin’ to have him here in time for my championship roller derby game. The odds are slim but I’m still holding out hope. He’s never seen me in action and that might be his last chance since I might be moving and not playing again. Sometimes I miss him so much I feel like I could just cry… I just keep moving forward…forward momentum. And I have lots and lots of distraction. It’s only fleeting moments when I miss him like that.

I went to this great art party last night. It was six artists that held their own showing. They had free beer (Lone Star, of course), a band, and free frito pie…true Austin, TX style. It was fun. Then I went and saw one of the roller derby girl’s band play. I have seen more live music than you could shake a stick at this weekend.

I have a friend from California coming in this Thursday. He is going to be shooting a small music video here and I will be helping him w/ that. Should be a lot of fun…and more distraction. ;)

Talk to you all tomorrow,
