Back in Texas...

For a minute anyways. I realize I've become a terrible blogger, but I promise updates are coming.

I came into town for the weekend because my stepsister Allison was getting married and Brooke and Freeland were moving to PA today.

I'll probably be around here for a few days and then head back to Colorado.

Amy had a dream last week that I showed up in town unannounced, and I couldn't tell her at the time but she busted me the day before I left! Crazy.

I also signed a lease in Colorado. I'm staying in Denver for the summer. When I get back there, I'll post some pictures of the place and Gracie's newest friends.

Updated Chisum Trail

Here's where I be. As you can tell, there hasn't been much movement. More to come on that. I've stayed in a lot more places than are marked, but I got lazy again.

The little comforts in life

As I mentioned in the previous post, I had a rough beginning of the week. HipHopapotomus came through for me, but another thing I figured out was to try to get back to some of the things that felt like home. Here are a few of the things that helped.

I've been eating at Chili's since it was the coolest place to eat in high school.
Their chips and queso can cheer anybody up

I'll affectionately refer to this as CRACK. Once you have some, you're hooked. And it had been a while

If they would let me rent a back room at Best Buy, I'd do it.

Best Buy also allowed me to play this for the first time. Is it weird to play video games at Best Buy for an hour?

It's been a while....

Sorry to leave you all hanging for so long. I got to Steamboat Springs last week, and have spent the remainder of the week lurking all over Colorado. I've been to Steamboat, Beaver Creek, Avon, Frisco, Breckenridge, Boulder and now I'm in lovely Denver.

8 inches of snow overnight last week, fun stuff

Gracie playing in/eating the snow

After hanging out in the mountains for a while, I headed into the Denver metro. First place I had to go, Boulder. One of my favorite places to hang out. Along the way, I ran into Big Horn. As Goulet would say, "Nature! That's why I come up here."

Here's video. All of a sudden, one of them was picking on the other. It was pretty cool to see from 30 feet away.

Here are some pictures from Boulder.

Gracie still enjoying eating snow

Also, I wanted to say thanks to Hip-Hop (most of you know her as my sister, Brooke) for helping me out when I was at a breaking point the other day. Most of this trip has been really easy and a ton of fun, but the other day was a really tough one for me and she came through in a big way. Thanks Hip Hop.

Updated Chisum Trail

I've made my way back into Colorado. This doesn't really surprise me. I may be here for a while.
