I am back, and very tired. I got back last night, and saw that Brian had just picked up a gamecube, to play at his leisure. After tabulating what I spent while abroad in Ireland, I have determined that I can not only afford skiing this coming weekend, which is back on, but I have my first ever "nestegg." I am working feverishly on getting all the pictures and videos from Ireland up and ready for your perusal. In the meantime, just rest easy, knowing that I have now lived in Kansas City for over two years. Scary, huh? I feel like I just moved here. Geoff has taken a job in Florida, and, I have been informed, is on his first night of his last week at work. He will be missed, and his leaving will put a heavy strain on Eddy and me. I think we'll handle it fine, though.
I now have a few more upcoming dates to look forward to. First, I am going to Colorado this weekend, to go skiing with my family, most of whom I haven't seen in months. Julia will be flying into Kansas City on Friday, and she and Brian and I will depart for Steamboat Springs in the wee hours on Saturday morning. Second, Guster is coming back to town, this time without John Mayer! They'll be playing in Chicago in late March, and in Lawrence in mid-April. Because of the Chicago show, which I will be attending, I will not be going there for St. Patrick's Day. Beyond that, I hope to make a trip or two or three down to the Ozarks, or maybe Oklahoma, to do some camping, as soon as it gets warmer.
Sorry for the lapse in updating. I'll try not to go to Ireland again, any time soon.
