One more month of boring nails, and it's back to fun flirty colors. I am obsessed with colorful nails. Black, navy, pastels, glitter. You name it, I love it.
Tomorrow I start the trek back up to Virginia. I've never made this drive before, so I'm hoping it goes well, and storm free. Prayers and well wishes are welcome, as always! :) My last day here in Jacksonville (or as it happens about 30 minutes outside of it, since my mom lives way out in the boonies. Seriously, we hear banjoes way too often for my comfort....) was very quiet. It was Baby Bro's seventh birthday, but since we celebrated with a huge party a few weeks ago, it was just quiet family time. I bought an XBOX yesterday (seriously can't live without one.... I have issues, I know.) and usually BB is not allowed to play video games, but he was granted a reprieve for his b-day so he spent the majority of his day riding his new bike, or playing Lego Harry Potter. Kinda boring sounding, but we enjoyed it.
We also went to his school yesterday and had brownies and cookies with his class. The kids were super excited to hear about Africa, and then we spent time helping the teacher. The school allows you to volunteer (after a background check, of course!) and you get to assist the teacher grade papers, make notes to send home to the parents, etc. It is fun, shows Baby Bro I'm interested in his life, and will look good on my college application! I know I'm considering a degree in nutrition, but teaching is definitely a consideration. I still have some time to think of it. :)
I charged up my camera so tomorrow I can take pictures of my long, boring, lonely road trip tomorrow. Maybe I'll stop for lunch at a wi-fi spot and read up on your blogs to keep myself from going out of my mind. I also have Pandora on my phone (and a car charger!) and loads of awesome cds. (I seriously need to get an iPod hookup in the truck.) I'll probably spend loads of time talking to myself, too. Haha. I love road trips, but not solo ones.
Ok, time for some honesty. I have been S.L.A.C.K.I.N.G. in exercise/eating lately. That ends now. I am officially no longer on vacation (not that a month long vacay should be excused...) and it's time to get serious. Plus I really miss running, no lie. So I need to start. :) I also need to start getting some sun on this pale white girl body, and am planning on working on that also. Haha. :) Also, since my hair grows super fast, I need to get my roots fixed up. Four weeks, and my roots are where most people's are at 6-8. I've already had to trim my bangs once.
