I'm Back!

I had soooo much fun on our little vacation to Austin. Seeing Amanda again (has it been 2 years?) was wonderful. The wedding was beautiful, and I enjoyed getting to know some of her friends. I forgot what it is like to socialize. I kinda liked it! Amanda still kicks ass at cards-any game, but it was fun trying to beat her.
On Sunday, we met up with one of my Aussie friends who has been staying in Dallas, TX for a few months with work. It was very fun. We only had time to go out for breakfast before leaving for home, but it was better than nothing!
We stopped in Dallas too. We visited the grassy knoll and saw where JFK was shot. Now I want to watch JFK again. The first time I saw it, I was a teenager, and I got bored. I've matured (a little too much) now, so I think I could appreciate it better.
Tidbits from the way home:
We figured out the two states we missed! We got all 50 this time, without even cheating and looking back on the list from the trip down. We had missed Minnesota and Utah, both of which surprise me because we were thinking of movies/tv shows and where they were filmed or supposed to have as the setting. How could we miss both FARGO and BIG LOVE? That makes no sense!
I started watching "Assault on Precinct 13" on the way home, but the laptop battery died. We need a car charger for the laptop, not that we will be needing it again for a long time. It has been 3 years since our last trip, so we've got another 3 before we'll need the charger...
I slept most of the way home, so that's all I have to say about that.

The dog and cats were alive when we got home (we hadn't heard from our house-sitter), and they were very excited to see us. Hopefully the kids will be just as thrilled. Josh went to get them last night. They'll be back tomorrow afternoon-YAY! I can't wait.
I think I left my cell phone in the vehicle that Josh took. That sucks since we don't have a home phone...

That's all for right now. I'll post some pictures tonight.

Was it a friend I know? I'd love to go to Texas! How cool.

I don't know if you really know her, but she was from Benalla, so how could you not know her?! It was Jody-a year ahead of you. I'll post a picture of that too. Flickr is causing me a headache. It is either flickr or blogger-I'm not sure who I'm mad at!
