4/19/2006 - Wednesday

So...I know I have been a little absent, but I have been pretty busy doing very uninteresting things:), but in case you want to know, here is the run down of life in Amy's world:

1. Work: 12 hours a day 5 days a week I am either getting ready and driving to work, actually working, or driving home from work. This, of course, is a mixed blessing.

2. Working out: I am OBSESSED with my elliptical machine. If you ever come and visit, don't touch it, or even really get near it, I am not sure how I'll react.

3. Visiting my parents: My trip to Northern VA this last weekend was very nice. I like visiting my folks every now and then:) However, driving through that area of country reminded me of how much I HATE northern VA. What a horrible, congested, traffic ridden, yuppie, inflated real estate suburban nightmare that place is. I don't care how pretty the countryside is. Those people are nuts. They pay a million dollars (not an exaggeration) for a big, ugly, pretentious cookie cutter house on a tiny lot that has exactly 2 sq ft of lawn, completely crowded and surrounded by other big, ugly, cookie cutter houses. Yuck.

4. Wedding mania: Two of my very best friends, Beth and Stephanie, who are probably going to read this, and also have never met one another, both decided to get married this May, one week apart. I am absolutely ecstatic for both of them, and I canít wait for next month to get here so I can go and visit them. (They probably canít believe May is almost here: ) I miss you guys!!!! While I am enamored with all the wedding-ness and the associated excitement, there are minor downsides. During the month of May I will be going insane with going to Sarasota for pre-wedding festivities, then wedding in Syracuse the next weekend, and then wedding in Sarasota the weekend after that (for those lacking in knowledge of geography, those two towns arenít exactly in convenient proximity to one another), all while attempting to plan my own wedding, which is presumably going to happen sometime this year. (In fact, for my sake and my parentís sake, it will happen this year, and it will be blissful, damnit).

5. Baja SAE at USF: Ok, I am no longer actually involved in SAE at USF, but those guys definitely deserve more space on this blog because they kick-ass. They did very well at Baja East in Arizona this last weekend, and look prepared to make an excellent showing at both West and Midwest later this year. There is a real possibility the Baja team could grab that 1st place overall position USF has been chasing for so many years. I wish I could go and cheer both the Baja and Formula teams on, but alas, I am a wage slave with no more available time off. Anyway, You guys rock!!! Good Luck!!! Go Bulls!!!!!

Thatís pretty much life for the moment. Well, that, and continuing to work on the house of course. The ďto doĒ list is about a mile long, and all I really want to do is ignore it and go on vacation: )

Comment Wow, Amy you sound just like me....I dust off my elliptical daily and Gregg thinks I'm nuts!! I also can't believe May is around the corner!! I will be calling you soon with an itinerary! I can't believe you are going back and forth from Fl. to Syr!!! Sounds stressful, but It will be fun!! It's too bad Stephanie and I didn't get together and pick out the same bridesmaid dresses for your sake!! ;-)
