Reminds me of the days when we kids would take a big, blue, 500 gallon stock tank (something like this tank), and pole our way up and down the creek. Now that was FUN. We didn't have a plug for the hole in the side, so we would find an old corn cob and use that for a makeshift plug so our 'boat' wouldn't sink. We still got very, very wet on those days...it was a blast.
(The big blue tub also doubled as a swimming pool, 'hamster wheel' (we'd balance it on its edge and try to walk around the yard without the tub falling over), hiding place, seat, sword-fighting ring, and makeshift sauna. We had a lot of fun with that old tub.)
Goodness. Here I am talking about blue tubs and boating...time to change the subject methinks.
So, the upcoming schedule (as far as I can see) is we leave on Friday for Branson, spend the night at the college, and then Saturday Isaac and I will drive back to Florida. *pumps fist* I don't know what goes on past that. XD I do know that I woke up around 3:00 this morning thinking about random things like what I needed to pack...I need to find a way to shut my brain off at night. Sigh.
Oh! Last night Mike and I went shopping...it was fun. :D He insisted on buying me a couple of spring-y looking tops (granted, I picked them out, but it was at his insistence XD)...when I tried them on he said that they were cute, and you know what that means, right? I probably will wear these things until they're falling apart in shreds, just because he said they were cute. It's the peculiar effect that his approval has on my mind.
Although I AM glad that I have said tops, because I was lamenting just yesterday afternoon that all I have are tank tops (black and grey solids), a few t-shirts, and maybe two button-up shirts in my closet...and said button-ups are rather 'business-like' in nature. *headdesk* Anyway. Enough about clothes...
We talked a lot too...he thinks that I ought to go to college. Like, away-from-home college, just to 'get the experience'. I'm...not sure that I agree. Perhaps I'm a minority, but I don't like leaving home (except in a few cases) and from what I've seen a lot of people my age don't know what they want to do in college anyway. They take classes, get a degree, and then end up doing something totally different. And I do NOT want to spend a bunch of money and waste a bunch of time working half-heartedly towards something that I'm not even sure that I want, ya know?
Argh...I'd talk more, but I have to go clean a house in a little while and the horses still haven't been fed. Siiiigh...
