It is almost here...
Only across the world from me; unable to talk on the phone and rarely able to e-mail, being 16 hours ahead of me. It has been a hard week and a half so far. Sakhalin Island, Russia is where Matt has been working for two weeks and I think he is ready to be home. I have not talked to him much, but when I have he said it would rain off and on all day...I am interested to sit down and have a conversation with him about the cultures and customs there. Him being gone has also made me realize the lack of a support system I have in Houston thus far. In Lafayette, I never minded being alone because I knew so many people around me and stayed fairly busy with everyone. This past week I had to go get blood work done and give a local emergency number and I sat there for about 20 minutes until I just decided to put a classmates name down. It is a very weird feeling when you realize you are somewhat alone...that needs to be changed!
Gable and I have been taking care of each other at home while he has been gone. She is my little protector dog and I try to pet her as good at Matt does haha. Every time she hears a truck she waits by the door with her tail wagging, only to be disappointed. I have been trying all week to get everything done so I could ride with a friend to the LSU/ULL game in Baton Rouge. I have been missing Tiger Stadium very much since football season started and am so irritated with the lack of school spirit at UH. Unfortunately, my homework kept piling up yesterday, and I had to cancel my trip to stay home and do school work :(. I am hoping to go to a game soon, but a lot of wedding meetings are scheduled for the next few weekends, including the wedding dress I have been waiting to try on in Austin the first weekend in October. Anyone want to make a weekend of it? Hopefully Matt and I will get to go to a game... Until next time...talk to you in Fall!
