It’s taken me all weekend, but I think I’m finally recovered from Phase 1 of travel-mania. The show was great. I always have a good time in San Antonio and this was no different. It’s always strange to hang out with people that you talk on the phone with and email constantly, but only see once a year. It’s like a family reunion with even more dysfunction than any family I’m aware of.
You try to avoid some people at any cost, you gravitate toward some like a moth to a flame and in the meantime, you float around trying to look busy. I walked so much my feet just stopped throbbing today. I laughed so much that my stomach was sore and I smiled so much (mostly fake) that teeth became sensitive to the air. I took a $100 cab ride to a doctor who told me I had an ear infection. I sat in a pharmacy with a bunch of homeless people. I played pool. I sold a bunch of stuff and I missed my home.
Really, it was a blast and I can’t begin to describe all that happened while I was in San Antonio, but the main thing is that I was homesick. It wasn’t “homesick” like “I miss my home.” It was more Wade-sick. I was so excited to get back that I woke up at 4:45 am on Friday and hit the road by 5am. Before 6:30 I got pulled over. 87 in a 60…YIKES! I only got a warning though. I think he felt bad for me. I sounded like hell and had quite the sob story about missing home and being gone for 2 weeks.
Once I got home I unpacked, started laundry and slept. I slept all day. When Wade came home we went to dinner and I almost feel asleep at the table. He was making fun of me quite a bit. We went to bed around 10 and were up early on Saturday to scout houses for the Graf’s!!! They ARE coming! I can’t wait. On Saturday evening we went to Chuy’s for dinner and came home and watched a movie. It’s been a wonderful, relaxing weekend and I’m so happy to be back home.
I’ve been explaining to Wade that it’s a very strange change of pace. While I was in San Antonio I was so focused on my career. To get home and be talking about babies seemed so foreign to me. I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s definitely changing gears. I’ll just leave it at that. Oh, but keep praying for more and Graf’s in Texas!
I’ve got 2 full weeks of being home before Phase 2 of travel-mania commences and I’m going to enjoy every second of it. We’ve got a full social calendar and I’m really excited about it. Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now.
