apparently i’ve been off the blog for…a couple of months.
suffice it to say, life got a little much to handle for a while. i’m feeling a bit more back on track, and have lots of exciting things coming up this summer and further, so i hope to be back on the blog more!
anyway, we’ve done some fun stuff lately:
[I INTERRUPT THIS POST TO BRING YOU THIS LATE BREAKING NEWS: IT IS EFFING SUMMER IN THE DIRTY SOUTH OF MEMPHIS. A TWO-INCH COCKROACH JUST LANDED ON THE COUCH NEXT TO ME…MY HOUSE IS CLEAN, I SWEAR! THE SOUTH HAS SOME TERRIFYING INSECTS!!]
[that was not fun…]
[…ok back to our regularly scheduled programming…]
a good crew of our friends came in town for memphis in may. we went to see our friend and memphis’ newest baller, rc the colaman and his dj, squirt, play at the P&H in midtown. it was the night of a tornado warning – memphis in may’s concerts actually got shut down and evacuated for the night. so what did we do? sit outside. makes for a good moody backdrop though.
then pete got badged! he’s soooo close to being certified as a Firefighter I – just a practical exam or two to go, which he’s practicing for tonight. scary but i have no doubts that i’m going to soon be living with a full-fledged, full-time, fully-hot firefighter!
and THEN we went camping. we spent two nights out at a state park an hour and a half east of memphis. it was beautiful and due to unfortunate physical circumstances (thanks, mother nature) i did not enjoy it as much as i wanted to. we’re hoping to set up another camping trip in the upcoming weeks.
memorial day rolled around and we spent it in central arkansas at a friend’s gorgeous lake house and out on the lake. obviously, pete enjoyed himself.
oh, and if you’re wondering about gibson, he’s good. being pretty lazy as the heat sets in.
[BACK TO LATE BREAKING NEWS…DURING THE ENTIRETY OF THIS POST I HAVE BEEN STALKING AND ATTEMPTING TO MURDER THE GINORMOUS COCKROACH. SUCCESS, AND A QUARTER FOR SCALE:
I HAVE DEFINITELY BEEN RUNNING AROUND THE HOUSE FLAPPING MY HANDS AND GAGGING. GIBSON IS EXCITED BUT CONFUSED. GAHHHHHHGGGGGHHHGG.]
