I'm bored. I'm at my aunt's again for another holiday. Leaving… - Equiraptor's Journal
I'm bored. I'm at my aunt's again for another holiday. Leaving tomorrow after lunch (as close to noon as I can get it).

Yesterday was a Miata drive. I woke up at 8:00 and washed the car, my mother showed up at 9:15, and we went on the run. It started off nice and sunny, but eventually turned to rain as a cold front come in. We ate at a nice little restaurant in San Saba and then headed home. I then had a wonderful nap on the couch with Nugget. I woke up later than I had intended, and had to rush off to church. Mmmm, Easter Vigil Mass. It's a very long mass (8:30pm to 11:00pm - I don't feel like doing the math), and though it has some interesting parts, it's still boring. It starts with all of the lights and candles in the church out, and as close to darkness at 8:30pm in mid-April in Texas will allow. A fire is lit and blessed, and processes its way through the church. Nearly everyone had a candle, and every candle is lit. There's a bit more ceremony, and then we blow the candles out. Next comes the creation story from Genesis, and a few other early Bible tales. And onward to a nice, long, boring mass (sorry, I'm not that's good a Catholic).

After mass, I came home, packed, and went to bed (yay bed). Up again at 6:45am, throwing on clothes and grabbing my bag. I needed tobe at my mother's by 7:30am, for we were leaving for my aunt's in Frisco, TX. I drive the blue '87 Camry up there, with my grandfather next to me and my mother in the back seat. My father follows later in my Miata, so I'll be able to drive it home tomorrow. We had lunch, had dinner, and now I'm sitting here waiting for bed. I'm tired. I'm very, very tired. And I'm stuck on a terribly old Windows 98SE box, with terrible cruft and very little memory. I'm trying not to go to sleep until tonight... If I take a nap, I won't sleep well, and will be tired for my drive home tomorrow. Maybe I should find some caffeine.

There are some absolutely beautiful kittens here. I'd love to take one home, but I suspect Boomer might not be too happy about that. So all the kittens will stay in Frisco.

Now... I need that caffeine...

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy

I suspect Boomer would hardly notice, let alone care. We can bring Wilma and Mary over to verify if you want, though. It'd be good for them to experience a car trip that didn't include the vet anyway.

I've been running around like a mad woman (school, work, stuff), so I haven't been spending a lot of time on LiveJournal. Everything's pretty much okay with me, except being busy. Thanks for saying hi!
