am feeling much better–emotionally ick–wise. first, kate came up to visit me this weekend, and i can’t express how splendid it was. two, i made some decisions that have put my mind/heart at rest for the time being. three and most fabulous, i got an email from dr lynch this morning stating i didn’t know how happy my correspondence had made him feel. ahh…

that’s all for now. i still haven’t unpacked, and zillions of posters need to be made. napoleon dynamite is an amazing film. everyone should see it.

well, tonight was wonderful. ab worked at the pool in the afternoon, and then we played just like we used to when we were little. she did a good job forgetting her responsibilities for awhile; although i must say, i am a way better little creek and spirit stallion of the cimarron than she is.

from seven til ten it was late night swim for kids twelve and under, and it was a great time judging biggest splash and longest handstand contests. ah, childhood.

on a downside, i said good-bye to chris last night for a long while. twas hard letting go of my baby, but at least my farewells are a bit spaced out. think of me on thursday and friday. eek.
