My weekend in the Midwest was too short. It was fun and flew by. We will see if I can get back again next summer. The lake house will be done by then. Trav is a blast.
Tuesday I went on a hike up American Fork Canyon with Becky. It was fun. However it is getting darker earlier... so we did some hiking in the dark. Thank goodness she thought to bring a flashlight or we would have been in trouble. Yikes! I'll blog more about that later.
I am emotionally involved in the show Nashville. My closet country girl is coming out. What? I don't love country!! There is some good music in this show though and it makes me want to write my own. I'm just not very good at it. I'm in season 2 and I'm loving it. I'm a sucker for drama shows though. Not sure what I will watch next when I'm done with this. This show is still going, so there are not that many seasons.
My visiting teachers came on Wednesday. They are sweet. I feel bad that I didn't like them before. I'm glad when people prove me wrong though. Well... if it's for the better. We had a nice visit.
I had a blind date tonight. First set up in a while. My friend Ben set it up. I always appreciate when people set me up even though I know more than likely its not going to click. I could tell just by talking to this guy on the phone that he wasn't my type... we are different people. Didn't know what he looked like, but I already knew there wouldn't be a second date. ha ha. That sounds terrible, but sometimes you just know. I was right, I wasn't attracted to him and we had pretty much nothing in common. I still make the best of it and have good conversation and appreciate the set ups.
This morning I had a dentist appointment. Just my 6th month cleaning. I usually don't mind them, but today the hygienist was rough on my cleaning. It hurt! Cleanings are not supposed to hurt. She tells me... your gums are bleeding a lot... I'm like yeah... you are stabbing them with a sharp hook. She says, you need to be better about flossing, there shouldn't be this much bleeding. I agree, I should be better about flossing, true, but when I floss, it doesn't bleed or hardly bleeds... maybe because I'm not flossing with a hook! Ugh. My gums were sore the rest of the day. Hopefully in 6 months I don't get the same lady cleaning my teeth.
I found a new drink at Sodalicious. It's called the Flaming Ginger. I didn't know if was on the menu until I was reading off the menu to Trav. The Flaming Ginger is my normal drink (Mango Mountain Dew) but then it has Strawberry. Yum! Love it. Don't worry, when I start the diet with Lisa I will be not drinking soda anymore. At least not for a while.
I guess that's it. Another week in the life of Tracy. This next week I think I need to start thinking about working on getting a travel visa. :)
