Berkeley Springs!

I had quite an emotional rollercoaster all the way through the weekend... fortunately I am pretty sure I can attribute at least some of it to the ol' feminine business. I couldn't figure out why I was so hateful and cranky towards the end of last week... well, now I know at least in part.

My 33rd birthday came and went, I had a little dinner with some friends - I wanted to include more of my wonderful, giving, terrific friends, but it wasn't going to work out. Things had to scale down this year due to stress. Tapas was lovely and I was grateful for getting to have a night off from studying and stressing. Thank you to everyone who sent me well wishes - they got me through an irrationally tough week.

Thursday night I ran around packing - you'd think for a 2 day trip this would be quite simple, but then you're not me. I was worked into quite the froth. It doesn't help that right now deadlines at work are looming, and my final exam hadn't been taken. (It has as of this morning, and I am pretty sure I did just fine.)

Friday after work we were free!! tzel allowed me to run the stereo and the weather was lovely and despite a touch of traffic, we made good time. There had been a request for Shoney's, as the nearest is out there by I-81. Fortunately for me they were having a seafood buffet. After that it was a short hop to the West Virginia line and the town of Berkeley Springs. The weekend was full of laziness, hot-tubbing, walks about town, reading, and more hot-tubbing. For a girls' weekend the topics ranged far and wide (not that I expect girls to only talk about shoes!), although I think the farthest and widest was a historical lesson on sharecropping... yeah, I still can't get over that. (And I don't think I talked about shoes more than one time.) Of course, I took a few pictures...

Suess Tree the photographer wrought grace Leaf Lovers Group shot!

Of course you should probably check out the whole set with notations here.

Now I have THREE, count 'em, THREE weeks of no homework or studying. I hope to finish some or all of the ten books I'm in the middle of reading... I am so fricking relieved to be done with that online class. You'll hear more from me later as it's 1 week to rock camp and that means I'll be plugging the showcase.

It cracks me up that you took a picture of your salad! :)

Ohh, thanks for reminding me, I forgot to add that to the entire set of photos of things I've eaten. :D

Those salads totally deemed pictures! =)

If I had been feeling really creative I would have taken a picture of how each person created their salad with the stuff available! Although it would only have been entertaining to me and probably some kind of saladophile who is turned on my salads. (I am not turned on by salads; I am just very easily amused.)

You can even put your goodreads ON your facebook.

I am a troublesome social networking vector.

i already have a book thing on facebook. i'm not sure quite what it is, though.

Do you have a picture of your tattoo? The view from the table photo looks gorgeous. Also, what facebook app are you using to show your books?

You know... I don't have a really good picture of the whole thing. I got to a point and I was like "ehn, I'll wait til it's done" which realistically will be in 2009... but the ones I do have are here.

also i found a thing that displays my goodreads stuff on facebook, although i think it doesn't update automatically? i spend so little time on facebook because i can't get to it here. if you look in my profile you should find it on the left side a little ways down.

Happy Birthday, dear, sweet Kim! I'm so sorry you had a crappy week during your birthday, but it sounds like maybe you managed to hot-tub away some of the stress. Lots of folks were having crappy weeks last week, not just you. There was something in the stars, I'm sure of it.

Your pix are awesome too. :)

Though my wish is belated, it's heartfelt! Have a great year!

Thank you so much!! You are so very kind.

Pics are beautiful! Sorry to have missed it but glad you guys had much fun!
