This morning I awoke to discover that the water in my apartment had been turned off. I was not pleased. A note clipped to the outside of my front door informed me that it had been temporarily shut off for maintenance purposes. Ah, the joys of apartment life. Shortly after making this discovery, Ryan called and asked if I'd like to accompany him on his journey to Gatesville to retrieve his newly-repaired truck. And so, showerless and with unbrushed teeth, I joined him for a 5 hour round-trip adventure to hicksville and back. It was fabulous. Ryan rescued a turtle from certain death by assisting him in his trek across the road. We passed many a cow, horse, and goat. (And greeted many with a friendly honk.) I took a nap with my head resting on the window and my neck twisted in the most unnatural position, as one can only accomplish during a car ride. But mostly it was fabulous because I got to spend the day with a boy that I'm pretty nuts about. That makes me smile. :)

And now, back in my Abilene, and feeling grungy as ever, I am praying that my water has been turned back on so that I can at last take a shower. Oh to be clean!!

Why is it that the only songs that get stuck in my head are really random? For example, currently the chorus of "These Boots are Made for Walking" is running through my head over and over. What the heck? My most common random song is Phantom of the Opera. At least I like that one. Oh well. What can you do?

Today I saw Whitney for the first time in about a week. Funny how two people can sleep right next door to each other and never see each other. Such is life.

My mom was supposed to come see me today, but she's sick so she didn't get to come. Sad day.
And sorry Julie. She was supposed to be bringing you plants for your apartment. I know you were really looking forward to adding some foliage to your decor.

Ryan and I leave for Honduras on Saturday. Holy cow! That's so soon! I'm pretty excited.

The weather here is so bizarre. This morning I woke up to a thunderstorm. Now it's incredibly sunny and beautiful. I love Texas.

After much trial and tribulation, Ryan has finally returned to Abilene from his week-long trip home. I'm glad he's back. I missed him a lot.

I bought a new memory card for my digital camera yesterday so I can take a bunch of pictures when I go to Honduras. My camera will now store 532 pictures. Like I could ever take that many pictures anyway! Maybe I should try, just because I can.

That's all I've got for now. The end.
