I finally have internet at home. It’s like entering the 21st century. I would say that I think I was reading a lot more while I was un-WWW-connected, but such is life. I’m still getting a daily paper at the house – I figure it’s an order from the previous owners that hasn’t been cancelled. I’m thinking I might look into the cost and possibly keep the order going – I really love reading the actual paper, the Waco Trib is pretty low commitment since it’s barely 3 skinny sections long, and it gives some structure to my morning that doesn’t involve staring at the wall while I wait for the coffee to kick in. The only drawback is all the trash it creates. Blah.
I’m working on planning my housewarming party for November 9th (also my mother’s birthday). Theoretically, the link to the evite should be here, but I don’t really trust the evite URL system. In any case, it’s an open house for most of the afternoon/evening. If you’re in the central Texas area (hahaha!) please come!
I’m thinking the first installment of my regular monthly party (2nd Fridays) is going to be a fire pit party. S’mores and other yummies and sitting out under the stars with a few beers and some friends. I’ve been working to try to clean up the backyard so it’s not embarrassing. Honestly, the whole thing needs a really good raking. I should probably rent a dumpster or something since there’s quite a bit of junk back there, but perhaps I’ll just keep trying to cut things up smaller and fit the mini dumpster in the alley each week in anticipation of Wednesday trash day. Also… maybe I should keep some of the wood for the fire pit.
I’m pretty lonely. I need work on the housemate project as well. So much to do… so little time.
