These days

I was working on the top of a roof with my dad when my phone rang. After a couple of days of waiting in limbo to hear if I even had a new assignment, it was finally the PC, wanting to talk about (2) new options. After going over them for just a few minutes on the phone our conversation ended, and now another decision needs to be made. I won't go over the details, but with either choice I'll still be in Pflugerville/Austin for the next 4 months. At least I have options again; two days of standing still is more difficult than months of waiting. So it's back to unpacking, making a room that I think is both mine and my sister's feel like a decent bedroom, and getting a job. The last few months haven't been a complete waste though. In fact, most of it has been pretty great. Here are a few pictures since Christmas...

Ronald Weasley LaPoint - our new roommate

The Davii and Phil setting up their tent amongst the woods in Bastrop State Park


A group picture before the Tired Stallions get lost in the woods.


Myself, sunburned and laughing


And finally...


Another picture of Ron

I'll finish up making my decision about the Peace Corps and accept one of the invitations tomorrow. Just a hint though: I'm pretty sure the name of the place I'll be going rhymes with Burkina Blaso. Other than that, the weather has been beautiful this weekend, and makes a nice accompaniment to some Beach Boys. Now if I could find something emollient for my sunburn...
