Sky pencil!!!

I'm not sure what day we are at in the countdown... could be 9, could be 7. According to her myspace, she is leaving on the 6th, two days earlier than I expected. I'm okay with that.

Anyway, today we went to the Home Depot, and I finally got my dream shrubbery. That's right, the wonderful SKY PENCIL... two of them! I don't know why I have wanted one so bad. Maybe it's because of the ease in which I will be able to prune them, and their stately nature. I will feed them, and love them, and watch them grow. And I'm really not sure why I always have to sing it out... sky penciiiiiillllll....

Then and now

a twenty year timespan, almost...

It's crazy how quickly time flies, and I know we all say that once we get "old". But it's so weird the way certain things that you had when you were young, feelings, thoughts, etc. never seem to leave you, no matter how many years pass. I've been talking to an old "friend" lately, and I just can't get over how it feels like nothing has really changed between us. I mean, our relationship has changed of course, and yet it hasn't - it just still feels very comfortable, even though there has been a seventeen year time gap since we last spoke.

BTW, today is Day 11. So close...

Day 17

Apparently I'm not the only one who's fed up with her. Once again, she didn't come home last night. The big guy just asked me when she was leaving. 17 days. I wonder if he'll be able to go off of his high blood pressure medicine after the source of stress has moved out.

Day 25

The week is almost over. Tomorrow is Saturday, but I have to work... one last SCAD Day before our summer hiatus. So I will take a little time tonight to play catch-up...
The trip to Chattanooga was great. It was so good to see Tonia, Big E, and their young'uns. The little guys were running around like wild, and I think it was hard on Tonia and E, but I didn't mind one little bit. It was a little weird at first, since we haven't all been together in like 7 years, but after the initial meet and greet in the parking lot, it was all just very comfortable, like a good pair of shoes. Keen shoes, my favorite. Anyhow, like I said before, our hotel was kind of in the ghetto, but really, I didn't care. I was so chill the whole time, not worrying about work, no time crunches, comfortable clothing, I could've been anywhere and I would've loved it. Well, anywhere warm. So, we went to the Tennessee aquarium, which has long been on our to do list. It was really nice. Not as good as maybe Baltimore or Tampa, but still, it was up there. My favorite fish? The giant puffer, of course! We went to some fun restaurants, made the regular pilgrimage to Walmart, and played card games at night. My only complaint about the trip... it was too damn short!

Day 31

Oh man, today was a doozy. We realized that we had not seen her, nor had any evidence of her having been home for about 48 hours, and she was not returning our calls. We were afraid someone had abducted her.

She finally called around 10:30pm and explained that she missed curfew last night, so she decided to hide out from us, rather than coming home. She told me she took a nap on the beach. Great, she's already acting like a homeless person. Stevie is going to brunch with her tomorrow, to "discuss" things. I wonder if we will have to kick her out before the countdown is over...

Day 34

Vacation was excellent, just what I needed. Will post details and pics soon. Our hotel was "in the ghetto" but the actitivites/time spent were awesome and much needed!!!

She has deleted her MySpace page. What gives?! Could it be a sign of good things to come, perhaps some self-control in the age of the WWW and technology? We'll see... Her recruiter called yesterday to check in and make sure she's not pregnant. How in the hell am I supposed to answer that question?!

My dad sent me some paperwork today to sign. He writes on the post-it note..."This is for some stocks. They will go to you when I am gone." How exactly am I supposed to take that?! I miss him so much.
