ramblin man

March 24, 2009

i never posted pics from san diego so here yall go. aidden is a little bugger, 100% pure energy. 

 

hmmpphh. what have i accomplished today? not much. after much waiting and waiting and a little bit o’ stress in the mix, the apartment was finally exterminated today. i threw away my loft bed, my mattress and some other junk yesterday. its a lot of money down the tubes but lets just put it this way…if bed bugs are in my yarn, ima flip a shit. i wont be getting any new furniture until i have a new place. if you have never had these creatures in your bed, be grateful. to say that the bites itch is an understatement. they have the ability to drive a fairly sane person completely mad. theyre fierce.

for some reason i have the following song stuck in my head…  some good ole allman bros…

Lord, I was born a ramblin man,
Tryin to make a livin and doin the best I can.
And when its time for leavin,
I hope youll understand,
That I was born a ramblin man.

Well my father was a gambler down in georgia,
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a greyhound bus
Rollin down highway 41.

Im on my way to new orleans this mornin,
Leaving out of nashville, tennessee,
Theyre always having a good time down on the bayou,
Lord, them delta women think the world of me.

Lord, I was born a ramblin man,
Tryin to make a livin and doin the best I can.
And when its time for leavin,
I hope youll understand,
That I was born a ramblin man.

(it may or may not be related to the fact that the bed bug guy was telling me for a full half hour about his divorce/his crazy wife/his 2 year old/his 4 year old/the difficulty he is having finding a woman younger than 40 who doesnt want kids but wants to take care of his/the inner conflict he is having with himself for not fighting for full custody…..)

besides that these are my spring/summer plans and in no order…..

1.) wedding in texas- weekend of may 2, moderately-extremely nervous to meet the family

2.) marathon in buffalo- weekend of may 24, completely/totally unprepared. i just hope i dont mess up my knees permanently or something. life has seriously been getting in the way of my running for a while now.

3.) new apartment- lease is up july 1st, after this bed bug mess… i really cant wait.

4.) 1 year at the point – may 17, wheewww-eeee. its been a ride.

5.) maybe another visit with remoy to buffalo in april to meet my family if the monetary stuff doesnt get too big.

6.) machu pichu – weekend of june 4, CANT WAIT. Me, James, and one of my favorite people in the chorus. Perhaps we will his up the Nazca lines? 

7.) erik and emily’s wedding – weekend of june 12, its on long island… that means a lot of extended family in town. emu and matt will chill here for a week after so i am totally looking forward to that.
