Day Two after spring break. And no, I didn’t get a tan. But I also didn’t get my wisdom teeth out (which was long ago the plan), so no complaints. (I was on a waiting list for the teeth, and the oral surgeon never called… so I get to keep ‘em for a little longer.)
Spring break was my cousin’s wedding, a few days in Nashville with my older sister, and then a handful of days bumming around home with my parents. It consisted of quality ice cream (oh yes) and quality conversation. Plenty of coffee. A dose of Thai food. Catching up with my amazing friend Karen in St. Louis (a visit that included coffee, tea, church, and a used bookstore, all with a great friend and good conversation—I ask you, what else does a girl need??). Reading books late at night before bed. (Recommended: Ella Minnow Pea. Go read it.)

but i’ve been to oklahoma
This past weekend, I was the main course in Crazy Surprise 2006… I’ve never been part of such an elaborate surprise, and it was a blast.
So, what is Crazy Surprise 2006? Well, I’d love to make it an annual event (hmmm), but this year, it consisted of me flying to Oklahoma, where I surprised my younger sister in the middle of her choir tour. Oh yeah. We got her good.

fending off the common cold
Please pass the Kleenex.
No, actually, I’m feeling fine, although I spent most of this weekend in bed trying to get better… or at least trying to breathe. Ugh. Nothing kills my weekend optimism like a cold. That gorgous to-do list? All but forgotten somewhere in my desk. I had to stick with the bare minimum. Isn’t that sad?
