State Traveler

Sorry – once again, MIA for an extended period of time.

Why, you may ask? Because I’ve approximately half my time this week in a car traversing the major cities of Texas. Within the span of seven days, I will officially have spent time in every major city in Texas. And, guys, this is a big state!

Christmas Eve – Work half a day, then drive six hours to my grandmother’s Christmas Eve. It was also, I am happy to say, a day late celebration for her 75th birthday. Love her and so happy to have her still in my life! 🙂

This is her picture from high school when she was a twirler – so adorable!

Then, Christmas Day with my parents – same town, so we had a reprieve from driving for a while. I had an excellent time with my sisters and my mom got some good pictures of all of us together in aprons (we always end up with at least one matching gift).

Sunday – drive to the Metroplex for my in-law’s Christmas celebration. Monday – back to the old SA. Copious napping was done by me, plus I made some food things and froze them to get the new year off to a good start.

Wednesday – H-town for the bowl game. The less said about that, the better. This car trip actually turned into 10 hours in the car. Why? Because we left the house around 10, drove almost to Houston, then realized, oh, neither of us decided to bring the tickets. And they were expensive. So, we went back to get them. Sigh.

Thursday – I worked, then we went to Austin to watch TWEETY CARTER play basketball (not for BU, on his D-League team, the Tulsa 66ers). Oh, how I love that man.

Today – blessed nothing. And some painting, of course. Because our house is STILL NOT DONE. My brother-in-law is coming to spend the weekend with us, so I intend to get him to help with the painting. Yay.

Tomorrow – more nothing. Hurray!!!

Sunday – drive to my favorite city for some college hoops.

I want to hear all about y’all’s weeks, too! I’ve missed everyone! 🙂

  1. FUN! At least you were in your car and not dealing with the airports, which have been totally ridiculous lately…..

  2. We stayed in the metroplex the whole time, but I still feel like I’ve been in the car for days!! Oh, and my sisters and I got aprons this year too! My mom made them and they are incredible!!

    • Next time I come to Dallas, we are getting together!

      I love aprons – I haven’t had one in years, so I was really excited to get this cute new one (it has polka dots – score!).

  3. Love the pic of your grandma. Sounds like you have been all over the place. I am tired of traveling too! Holidays can be exhausting. Looking forward to being a better commenter/blogger now that things have settled down.

  4. Oh my gosh, we spent a week in California, which–just, never again. Too exhausting. But, good to spend time with family and all, blah, blah. Glad to be back in Texas and getting back into a normal routine.
