I moved to
Monday morning, I dropped her off at the airport and continued on to work. I cried most of the way. I was so sad to see her go. I know I will see her again, but it’s hard because I so enjoyed spending time with her hanging out, doing nothing, and running around like crazy. No one else understands me quite the way she does.
I’m going to make do with the memories we made while she was here and look forward to our next visit, which WILL NOT be two years from now.
We had such fun this past week that I just can’t see letting a lot of time go by before we can do it again. We went to Café Adobe, my favorite Mexican restaurant, Lone Star Scrapbooking, Scrapabilities, JoAnne’s, Michael’s, and Walmart’s Scrapbook section…hmm, I’m beginning to see a pattern here.
We had BBQ and went clothes shopping. The highlight of the trip came on Friday though when we headed down to NASA. We spent the day playing with rocket ships, hanging out at Mission Control, and spending lots of money in the gift shop. Mission Control was especially poignant. It was amazing to see the site where so many historical moments took place. We learned that there is more power in our laptops today than were in all the computers in Mission Control back in the day. And yet, they were able to put a man on the moon. Astounding to think about that.
After playing Astronaut, we went to
We then headed to our favorite eatery in
On Saturday, we slept in. My dad arrived around 11:30ish and we chatted with him and then headed over to Teacher Heaven, a local teacher supply store. Britt is a newly minted teacher, having received her Master’s in Teaching in April. Of course, as the designated best friend and cheerleader, I have to brag to everyone that she got her Master’s and did it summa cum laude too! Yup, I embarrass her, but I’m so danged proud of her so she’ll just have to live with it. Where was I? Oh yeah, so we scoured the bookshelves at Teacher Heaven and then headed over to Old Town Spring.Old Town Spring is a bunch of cute little shops in old houses that have been turned into businesses. We hit the toy store and Connie’s Bath Shack. We stopped by the Amish furniture place, which had some BEAUTIFUL pieces. They were getting ready to close so we sat in the back in rocking chairs and just talked about stuff. It was nice to relax.
Saturday night, we headed over to Sizzler’s with my dad. It was crowded as they had just opened a couple of weeks ago. The food and the service was so-so. We plan to try it again in a few weeks when it is, hopefully, more organized.
Sunday found us at Buffalo Wild Wings, where we celebrated Dear Husband’s birthday with his friend Terry and my dad. It was good food, but a lot of fried stuff and left us both stuffed. We had cake and ice cream for Dear Husband’s birthday and then left the restaurant to head over to The 39er, a bargain store similar to the Dollar Store. We looked around and then made our way home where we played on the internet, watched Little Miss Sunshine, and went to bed late.
Monday came too soon and it was a real bummer. As I mentioned above, I was SO sad to see Britt go. I miss her so much already, but I am definitely looking forward to the next trip. Thank you Britt for being you and being my kindred spirit. My life would not be as full or as fun without you in it.
Here’s to great memories made and more to come!
