Another Wonderful Weekend…

I must say that the last few weeks have been some of the most amazing ever, it’s finally summer and we’re finally doing stuff. Lets see where to start, Friday we went out to dinner and then over to Kyle’s nothing too exciting, but fun nonetheless. On Saturday I watched my friend sell his soul to the Guitar Center in Castleton for an amp. A nice one, but holy crap, it was freakin’ expensive. Then Erin and I went out to see Harry Potter with her cousins, good times. Stupid window. Then we went to the hot tub and just relaxed and stuff, parents made us dinner, can’t be a good bloody steak. After watching my first John Wayne movie, I finally went home. Sunday we went back down to Castleton, to the Mongolian BBQ. After figuring out that downtown was a bust and that we were pretty much bored, I was finally excited to see the fireworks. You see to some people the fireworks are just that fireworks. But to me they actually mean something. I feel like it’s actually important to see them each year, I can’t’ explain why or what, but this year with Matt gone made it all the more important to me. He’s called a few times lately, all appears to be well, he’ll be home in like 60 days or something and I honestly can’t wait.
You know what else was great about this weekend? The fact that I had yesterday off too! Didn’t do anything. Well anything important anyways, just played some golf and washed the car. It was pretty cool. It’s nice to be able to turn off your phone and just kick back for the day. We went lifting last night…. holy hell. I didn’t’ lift that much, but we played ball before that and I don’t’ think I’ve ever sweated so much in my life. The crazy thing is that I think I actually lost 2 lbs in the process. I weighed myself on Saturday at 172 and now I’m 170. Of course I realize that 2 pounds could be from the fact that I didn’t eat before I got weighed or something, but still, it’s cool. Now it’s time to bulk up.
I dunno what is going on now, but I am just freakin’ happy all the time. Erin has really just came into my life and made everything wonderful. This weekend is going to be great too; we’re going to the Dunes to see her friends and stuff. I can’t wait.
Sometimes just waiting is the best thing you can do, out with the old, in with the new. Thanks for all you’ve done, perhaps in the future we can help each other again.

I should have wrote this before…

My sweetieOh well though I’ve been amazingly busy the last few days with everything going on with life and all. Well I guess the biggest news is that Erin and I are together, it’s been a whole week now. Things are great. She’s meet the family and can tolerate them and her family is awesome too. I just cant’ get enough of her. She’s one of those people that just fits so well, I’m falling hard and fast again. Who known what will happen, but I’m loving every minute of it.
The other cool stuff that’s been going on is pretty much all of last weekend, what started with a cool dinner at Mongolian Grill and just got better from there. If you’ve never been to one you must go, they are the coolest! Erin’s dad was cool enough to take us all out to dinner and stuff, then we bopped around Castleton for a bit. Then it was off to Chris’ Bachelor party!… heh… to my friend: Thanks for not puking in my car, it was definitely a great time.
On Saturday it was my birthday, heh, and Chris and Terra’s wedding, a great time. I’m glad the two of them finally got everything worked out. You guys are a great couple and the wedding was spectacular, CRCs included. 🙂 After that it was out to dinner with the old gang, well most of it, of course we had new faces too. Jake bought dinner for Erin and I as a birthday gift, a very cool thing to do. After that we did something, I just can’t remember what it was really, oh yeah, we went to Ambyr’s… After getting home at like 330AM and staying up till 4 talking to Erin I was totally dead for the party at my house on Sunday.
Everyone came over for Mexican food that g-ma made. It was amazing. It’s good to have friends that you can invite over to your house and not be afraid of what they might say or do. In the evening Erin and I went out to the lake and just enjoyed the night. I went lifting with the guys and just had a good time all weekend basically. This weekend is looking like it’s going to be as busy as ever too. The Fourth is definitely going to be a good time and now that I may not have to work on Monday I think it’ll be even better. I’ll write more tonight, but I just had to get some of this down while I was thinking about it.
Of course I should say that there still are problems with people out there, some people just can’t be happy for those of us who have finally found someone. I’m not ashamed at all of what I’ve done and what I will do, it’s a real and good thing. Be happy for me or butt out.

A long weekend that ended too soon

I’m sitting here realizing that the weekend is nearly over. It’s been quite the eventful weekend really. Party on Friday was rockin’ tons of people that we didn’t even realize would show up and just a good time all around. Definitely something that we’ll have to do again… probably should take a break from it though and let everyone recharge a bit. Then on Saturday I played golf a bit, didn’t shoot too bad but bad enough. Saturday after we got everything ready for Sunday I went to bed early. Then at 4AM yesterday started… What a day. First of all we got there at about 7… the race normally doesn’t start till 11 anyways. We walked around a bit in the infield. Actually ran into some people that I knew. Weird to see guys from the old IUK crowd. Finally we got to our seats, pretty good seats actually but then the waiting began…. Indiana gave us a taste of its wonderful weather. First they started about 2 hours late then there was a delay then they got going again. Finally after all the caution laps and stuff the race was basically called at 630 as the skies opened. While we were walking back they told us that there was a tornado around and that we should hurry. I got to the car totally soaked, changed clothes and started driving… We were going to stop in Carmel and eat, but with the weather being so bad we just decided to drive home, as were heading down 26 they said that there was a tornado about 10 miles behind us. Not cool. We went to Annie’s aunt’s house… chilled there while things blew over, it sounds like they really did here at home; parts of Peru are wiped out…. So sad. Really it is. Today I got up late, played some more golf. Things have been different lately. Some old things are just not working anymore. I don’t’ really know what’s happening with life right now.  I dunno tomorrow starts another week, lifting tonight… I’m outta here.
