Whew... it's been a hit-the-ground-running kinda day! It's still sort of going that way, but I'm taking an aid station break I suppose.
This after a nice mellow couple of weeks where I had a lull between tutor loads. I enjoyed another visit with my parents yesterday, knowing that some heck would break loose starting today.
But it's all good, and really not too heavy. It's just the start of another fall testing season for the nervous high school seniors, and getting a new batch of students all going at the same time is a bit crazy. But we'll settle into a happy trot soon enough.
Chaco and friends had one of their rip-roaring LAN parties over the weekend to celebrate end of summer. I like how this group of guys has managed to keep the geekiness alive since their high school days.
I asked Chaco if he slept much. He said, "not much" and commented that his voice was hoarse from yelling.
"'Cause when you play video games, you have to yell"
And I'm thinking about the accomodating couple that always lends out their house for these things. Andrew is an only child, and the guys go to his house and take over the basement.
I'm thinking they deserve, at the very least, a fruit basket or something!
In other news, Magnum and I are an old married couple. Twenty-four years as of today. He reminded me that last year, we celebrated by attending the wedding of one of his coworkers. Then he said that THEY were going to the fancy pants restaurant tonight.
He said so as we sat around in our shorts and t-shirts and flip flops, eating some tuna salad and whatever leftovers needed eating. I'm fine with it.
That's one reason why he married me.
