Well, we arrived in Omaha tonight! Its been 14 years since I’ve been back here and believe me, I thought if anything we’d be coming back to visit friends or see the College World Series (so did my husband!) but I guess this works too. We plan to do a little pilgrimage to the town I grew up in too while we’re here, (as well as all the other ones all over the country/world) so that should be exciting. I’m really excited to see my old schools and houses!
This will be a little picture post, since the name of the game is fun, so here’s a brief run down of what we’ve been doing.
Did you really think I was just sitting in the car? Knitting progress through Texas.
We stopped for few nights in Arkansas to see some family and go to Riverfest. Completed a 5k and attended some concerts. And saw the Irish dancers!
As I told my husband, most people put pictures of their babies/kids next to inamate objects on their blogs to show their growth. Here I am posting pictures of my sock. Not even my dog, but a sock. How much more pathetic can I get? Maybe that will change soon…(wait…was that a glimmer of hope you just witnessed?? All of your pep talks may be paying off!)
And the best medicine to calm some fears, meeting someone wiser and more experienced in this department…I bring you the proof….
Finally got to meet this girl and her husband, about a year after the first time I emailed her and said I may be coming to Omaha. “Mr. Mysterio” as my husband called her at first (did I tell you that?!), turned out to be real and not an axe murder (whew!). Hit it off right away and am very glad that we had a chance to meet before the surgery to be reminded that I really am a wuss and it will be ok!
Anyway, stay tuned and I’ll try to update how it goes and eventually, if I ever finish that sock!
(Ok, maybe one of those is more exciting than the other….)
You better believe I’m talking about the sock!!
Wow, I’m in a weird mood.
