Making a pit stop at home

September 29, 2008

It sounds like there is a suit of armour banging around in my dryer. I’m guessing that isn’t what it is since I usually dry clean mine. I got home from Massachusetts last night and realized that I had a lot of laundry to do and very little time to do it.

I’m going to be out of town until Friday or Saturday, which involves a lot of packing. I’ll be driving to Asheville today to see my grandparents before they move out of their house this weekend. Tomorrow I’m planning to drive back in time to catch the evening flight to SFO with J. We’re going to be visiting various members of our families.

Today is Adri’s 30th birthday. We had quite a celebration for her on Saturday. I must say, the Amherst folks know how to have a bbq party. There is always more food than we can ever imagine eating – except for the potatoes. They didn’t last – and more drink than anyone can ever drink. It was supposed to start at 3 but was kind of rainy and dreary so it didn’t really get going until later. I’ve been visiting Amherst for over 3 year and Adri has very generously shared her group of friends with me. Sometimes I am the only American at their parties. It’s nice to know that I could visit South Africa, Colombia, Russia, Ukraine, Lebanon, Pakistan, Iran, Albania or the Cape Verde Islands and know someone there. It was a good time and I think Adri might be realizing how many people love her and think she’s amazing. I know I do.

Now it’s time to get going. I’m a little nervous about driving in this gas shortage we’re having. I think I’ll stick to the interstates since I’m not counting on the little mountain towns to have gas. I’ve also heard they have some in South Carolina. If I do run out I hope it’s at least near an airport.

    It’s usually the cod piece that makes so much noise… you should let it air dry instead.
