So this weekend was busy. Friday evening after work I drove my Dad down to Texas. We got there around midnight. I must say it was weird being in Texas and not seeing my friends. But what was weirder was laying in bed at my step-dads moms house and knowing my house, the one I grew up in was right next to me. It was a sad feeling seeing that place. Almost all of my childhood memories are there. Its not run down looking now. It actually is very pretty. I wanted to thank the new owners for taking such good care of it, I wanted to see if they would let me see the house one last time. But I don’t think I could bear to. The last time I was there inside that house was 17 years ago when my Grandpa died. Saturday morning I drove my Dad’s fathers truck home. That was the point in the whole trip. Its a nice truck. 2005 Toyota Tundra SR5 V6 2wd. Not my favorite but it was fun to drive. I miss Texas. When I’m driving through there I think of all the places I’ve been there, all the memories it holds. It makes driving across that State line so much harder.
I love the music there. You can turn on the radio and it will play you real country music. Red Dirt music. Music that speaks to your heart. There are back roads you can get lost on. Such beautiful country. I miss it to no avail. I don’t though miss its fire ants and Dallas traffic. Every time I go its like I feel something inside me light up, and every time I leave a little dies. Its weird to be so attached to a place. Luckily I carry Texas with me everywhere I go, in my blood and in my skin. I had a big thing I was going to write about but I have since forgot. Texas truly has everything to offer. I miss its oceans most.
Went swimming at a place I never knew existed the other day. Bluff Hole Park. It was fun, so was the drive there. I have never jumped off a bluff before. The one I was on wasn’t very high, maybe 4-5ft up? But it still scared me. Took me 15 minutes or more to decide to jump. The feeling between your feet leaving the rocks to hitting the water is such a rush. Such an insane feeling, falling. I’m looking forward to going back. Maybe I can jump from higher this time.
Crunch time is starting for Slamily Reunion this year. Bonnie is still over heating. I have to order a new radiator tomorrow! And she needs cleaned something fierce!
I guess I should go to bed. I’m exhausted and Penny’s looking pitiful. Good night my tumblr friends, where ever you are I hope your doing well.
I totally teared up from reading this. I am so sorry that I didn’t get to see you and I miss you so so so much. I am jealous of you getting to go jumping, I still haven’t yet. I am more scared of the swimming than the height and jump of course but still. I understand the attachment to a place. I miss you, one day we will go on a big long driving trip, I promise. AH! We saw these jogging shorts the other day that were the Texas flag and I told Jellybean that we should have got them for you so people could see Texas on AND above your nice ass ;D Haha Texas flags don’t even remind me of Texas yknow, they remind me of you. Love you Googli Bear.
