The Sun will Set for You

What a deliciously relaxing Saturday!  Okay, I might have forced a little enthusiasm just now because I promised that I'd be more upbeat, but seriously, it wasn't half-bad.  I stayed at home and did nothing.  Well, let me qualify that a little.  "Nothing" means I did laundry, cleaned my house (as best as I could considering I was tripping over relocated furniture), listened to music, worked on a painting, and played with the bunny.  But the point is, for the first time in months, I had an entire day free with absolutely no obligations.  Clint was busy getting an enormous tattoo (more on that later), and with no papers to grade this weekend, I had that awesome feeling of waking up to a big fat open day stretching in front of me. 

I'm feeling a little better about Matt and Alana moving, although the whole idea still disheartens me.  Matt is moving out there next week, and that sort of sucks, because it's all happening so fast.  But Alana is staying until December so she can finish off her semester of school and deal with their house.  She and I have decided that we're going to spend as much time together as possible, and just really try to make these final months count.  So in this sense, I'm thankful. 

Tomorrow Shannon is coming over, which is good because I'm craving my sis badly right now.  The last time I saw her was at the L.A. County Fair on the 24th, but for some reason, it feels like it's been so much longer.  Then, on Monday, I'm driving over two hours to meet a friend for lunch.  I'm really excited to see her, but also nervous.  It's been a long time since we've seen each other, and a lot of things have trespassed between us since our last visit. 

I love this song.


P.S.  Alana, I promise I'm not still wallowing--(much)--the song choice is pure coincidence. :)
