So I’ve been slacking off…

So I’ve been slacking off on journalling again, sue me.

Saturday night the family headed out to Melanie’s party. I had baked some lovely cookies for it. We got there and admired the lovely (and huge) apartment before eating all the food in the house. Ok, so we didn’t eat that much, but Melanie and I did have to make a trip to the grocery to buy some more non-alcoholic beverages, as there were more children there than she had thought there’d be. We had a lot of fun, I got nicely toasted, we danced and played games. It was a nice evening. And best of all: there were no cookies to take home! Yay!

Saturday, our little family headed out to the Fort Worth Zoo, accompanied by the Balderas family (Nick works with the dad, Dan). We spent five hours hoofing it along and managed to finally see everything there was to see. It was a very long, but very enjoyable day.

Nick and I have come to an arrangement to get me down to CS in time for Halloween. He’s going to drive me half-way there and my parents are going to pick me up in Waco. They haven’t seen David in a month, and since it’d be two weeks until we would be getting there, they really wanted me and David to come down now since it’s a holiday and all.

In any case, I’ll be in CS for a week. Don’t know how much I’ll be posting here while I’m there, but I’ll attempt to keep in touch.
