I can hardly believe it, but today I get to pack my bag for a vacation. Tomorrow I am skipping out of town. Matt and I are headed for San Antonio. I haven’t seen him since June, and that’s when we made up our minds about this trip. Five months is a long time to go without seeing someone you really like, and I am ready to see that man. Honestly, five months is really too long for us, but my schedule gave the illusion that late October was the best time for this trip. It’s okay—I’m a pro at this relationship now. I’m just patient enough to make it work, though I really hope we don’t have another five-month gap between visits!
Today I’m relaxing, packing my bag, and baking cookies. Tonight a few friends and I may be indulging in some autumn fun by visiting a corn maze after dark. I’m excited—I’ve never been to a corn maze! But I’m even more excited for Matt and San Antonio tomorrow. I hope to take some photos so that I can share a few tidbits about our trip, but I plan to relax, really relax, over the next few days. I’m actually going off-line when we hit the road, something that scares me a little bit because my on-line habits are so deeply ingrained in my daily life. But I think it will be good to immerse myself in the otherness of a new place and to reconnect with Matt in real time.
I hope this doesn’t sound too cheesy, but I’ll miss all of you while I’m gone! I will look forward to catching up with you and your lovely blogs when I return.
One last thing before I go: I finally wrote an “About Me” page! I figured that after four years of blogging, I should probably introduce myself more properly. It reads a bit like a CV, and I’m sorry about that, but I am so deep in the trenches of science and the nerdy life that it feels right to me. If there’s something you are dying to ask me, ask away! I’ll add it to the About Me page, perhaps as an inFAQ (inFrequently Asked Questions). Why inFAQ? Because this is a small blog, therefore all questions are infrequently asked.
