(unlikely dreams)

woensdag 29 juli 2009

Quick post to let everyone know that I'm still alive; there just hasn't been a whole lot to talk about. This is going to be an insanely busy month -- we're going to Asheville for a wedding this weekend, Winston-Salem for another wedding next weekend, Carolina Beach for a bachelorette party two weeks after that, and then wrapping up the month with a trip to Gainesville for my first PA interview. Somewhere in there, I'll start my half marathon training (the race is Nov. 1st), Liz will start back to school, and I'll (FINALLY) get my new laptop.

The other thing I'm looking forward to this month: The Time-Traveler's Wife. If you haven't read the book (one of my top five favorites of all time), go out and buy it right now so you can finish it before the movie is released on 8/14. I normally despise movie adaptations because they never look the way I picture the people/places/scenarios in my head... but every time I watch the trailer for this movie, I start crying my eyes out, because it looks EXACTLY like what I've pictured for the past three or four years, each of the dozen times I've read and reread the book. I have high hopes for the movie.

Off to work now... I'm on call today, so I don't start until noon. Sleeping past 6:45 is so incredibly lovely!
