On Sunday I found out that my dog got hit by a car. I miss her so much. I know it’s hard enough to lose a pet, but GiGi was more than just a dog- I miss her the way you miss a person. I miss her the way I miss my dad. With my whole heart.
slash not. By the time we arrived in Virginia last night, I was the most unpresentable I’ve probably ever been. My mom was impressed that I didn’t even need a bobby pin to hold back my bangs anymore, because they were staying back on their own lol.
It was a pretty neat trip though because now I can say I’ve been to three states that I’d never been to before! Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania! Although I’ve gotta say- Ohio and Indiana: get off your high “east coast” horses and just admit already that you are part of the midwest! Like, seriously, you don’t need to be an hour ahead of Illinois & the rest of us. Also, your agriculture looks exactly the same as the rest of the midwest!
Side Note: Pennsylvania is legitmately not a midwestern state. The trees were so different and seriously they are the cutest things ever! My mom had to be sick of me commenting on them by the time we made it into Maryland. They look like some great being-mythical or not- like a giant, a wizard, or even God, took his pointer finger and thumb and pulled the trees upwards from the ground. Seriously. Go to Pennsylvania and tell me the trees don’t look like that.
Anyway, I digress.
I’m happy to be here, finally (remember how I said we were going to leave Tuesday? Well because of that physical that I had to get we didn’t leave until Wednesday afternoon lol), even if it is just for a day. We broke our trip up into two days and stayed in Rockford, IL for a night with my cousin. The rest of the fam was on vacation at Lake of the Woods in Canada except for Miriam (who stayed home to work on projects for her fashion label) and Anna (who had to work). Sadly we didn’t get to see Anna due to an unfortuneate series of events. The first of which was a cocktail party (i think) for work that she had to attend, the second was a car accident :( Total bummer. At least she is fine though. And although it sucked that we only got time with one family member, it was totally lovely overall.
&&& I got to meet their new(ish) puppy named Charley. Cuteeee. He is a chocolate lab and by now he is past the true puppy stage. He is more in the gangly adolescent phase now. Presh! although a little naughty at times. He did pee on my foot. lol. But it was sooo much fun to watch him and GiGi play. They were vicious! The teeth totally came out, but it was all in good fun.
Alrighty, well I have much to do before tomorrow’s departure (!) and so I must bid you all adieu.
p.s. scary thing- my computer logged me out of wordpress because I hadn’t been on in so long!! I promise to be better in the future!
p.s.s. I’m still working on the invisible header thing. Hopefully it will be fixed soon!
p.s.s.s. It rained almost the entire two day trip! I couldn’t believe it. And now, it just started raining like nuts in Alexandria, VA! What’s the delio, weatherman?
Here is just a quick update, loves. Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. the past few days. I’ve been hella busy!
Today is the last day of my internship at the DAM & I’ll truly be sad to go. I’ve enjoyed it so much! And when I get home from work, my mom, my sister and I will get to work on finishing packing up all my shiz. Yikes. That is a scary thought. My Uncle Jon lives in Wyoming & he was really nice and agreed to store some stuff for me but other than that, everything must go!
I finished my paper last night while my mom and sister were visiting my Aunt and Uncle and since I finished, I then had the lovely opportunity to see some friends from high school who are visiting Denver (woot Lauren & Melissa!). I took GiGi with and met them at Stella’s and it was really fun- it’s seriously been so long since we’ve gotten together that I have no idea when the last time was that I saw them!
This morning we woke up bright and early at the hotel my mom & sister are staying at. I drove to campus, printed and turned in my papers (relief) and then went to work.
Calla, Victoria and I went out for a “Last Day of Work” lunch at Maggianos and now I’m just finishing up some work before I leave for the day!
It is very likely that I wont post for the next several days since road trips and blogging don’t really go together ;)
Have a great weekend (I know I will)!
