BUSY weekend

by on Jun.27, 2006, under General

Well, talk about your weekend running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. WOO. Friday night was moderately slow, hanging out at home relaxing. However, Saturday morning bright and early, got up and drove to my grandmothers in Fredericktown, MO. I drove there from Columbia, leaving around 9ish in the morning. This doesn’t include getting up to walk Malcolm, load the truck, etc. so I’d been up since 7:30am. The drive time, going down the back-roads took about 4.5 hours. This is a pretty dang long drive, through twisty windy missouri roads. What’s even more fun is encountering the 35 mile-per-hour towns all through that drive. Woah, talk about a not-so-relaxing drive.

Of course I complain about something that really isn’t that bad. I had walky talkies so dad and I talked a lot of the trip. We talked about past trips, future trips, life, trucks, houses, and just everything in general. This is always a fun thing for me smile Other than talking, the scenery itself made the trip more than worth it, and helped to pass the time. I can’t think of how many churches we passed, as well as people out on canoes, going up and down gorgeous rivers. Though sometimes I hate missouri (stupid allergies), it can be a very beautiful place to live. For some pictures of my grandmothers, feel free to stop by the gallery page of the weekend visit.

SO, after spending several hours at my grandmothers, browsing through her garden and just chatting, it was time to leave. Drove from Fredericktown up to St. Louis to hang out with friends, and see a band play. Joe Cosas, and old friend is in a band called “Middle Rhythm Session”. I went up to St. Louis to see him and his band play, as well as visit Christian and catch up with other Newman folk. I stayed at the pub where Joe was playing till about 12am, whereupon I drove back to Columbia and crashed around 2am. This was a LONG trip, and I spent a good chunk of Sunday recovering from this. Of course, monday came around and I wasn’t fully recovered… but, it was worth the difficulty. I haven’t had a chance to visit my grandmother in a long while, and overall, it was nice to get away for a while.

In the end, it was a very busy weekend, but it was also a very good weekend.
