I think I'm suffering from writer's block. I'm not particularly inspired to write these days. I'm not entirely sure what is to blame for this except a bit of malaise that has temporarily fallen over me. Let me first say this: Marriage is WONDERFUL. I love it. I love being with Jason (In the same state. Finally.) I love rehashing the day with him and figuring out what life looks like together. Nesting has been soooo fun and I am now on intimate terms with Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
But things have been a bit slower than I anticipated in terms of job and friends. Ok, ok, so it would be fair to say that this is a bit of a pity party. I know this is just a season of this HUGE transition and that it will soon pass. It's just that when you've been a teacher for five years, you hit the point when you've had enough summer. I'm there and then some. Things are starting to pick up though and I'm hoping that some of the pieces of work and community will quickly fall into place.
Because otherwise I am going to have entirely too much time on my hands to surf my new addiction: www.popsugar.com. "Wasn't people.com enough for you, Leslie?" you may ask. Oh sure, it's good. It usually has the latest info. But why settle for a website that only updates its info on celebs every 5-8 hours when you have a site that updates and has new stuff hourly? Oh, it's the good stuff. Popcrack.com is what they should really call it, it's that addictive. I told my "dealer" that I wouldn't reveal her identity so that my husband won't end our friendship when he realizes that's where I'm spending so much time on the internet. Sorry honey!
This weekend marks my initiation into the Saturday Texas College Football Tailgating Extravaganza. My brother-in-law, Brian, and his brother have this incredible tailgating trailer that is literally beyond description. I'll just have to post pictures for you later. He and my sister-in-law, Angela, and their whole crew are rolling into town for the Texas Tech vs TCU game. I will be getting my "guns up" for the Raiders and hoping for a sound trouncing of the Horned Frogs. I mean seriously, when you're the Horned Frogs, is there any chance that you won't get beaten? I think not. Angela and her girls are fabulous and I am so excited about spending some time with some sassy women again. I love my husband but I am in dire need of an estrogen fix!
On a very happy note, a dear friend is joining the wedded ranks. Stu Hipp took the plunge, asked the big question, and Stephanie said yes. Congratulations and blessings to you both!
