June 17, 2010: Last Full Day in Texas

Today is my last actual day completely in Texas.  Tomorrow I am off to New York.

I got nine hours of sleep last night which was great.  Been a long while since that happened.  That still meant that I was up and out of bed at seven this morning.

You know that you have been in Texas for a while when you go outside in one hundred plus temperatures and think “oh, this is pretty nice, at least there is a breeze.”  Even getting into my X3, which is black, after it has been sitting outside in those temperatures with the Texan sun beating down on it doesn’t phase me anymore.  Weird.

I took today off from La Cima.  I figured that I needed any spare time that I had to be getting ready for the trip.  So I spent my lunch time at home alone.  Then, after work, I just came straight home and spent the evening trying to get things ready for the trip.

Maggie came by around eight thirty or maybe nine to pick up some stuff that had been delivered to the apartment for her.  She was at the apartment for probably an hour or an hour and a half.  I managed to get her desktop readied for her so that she was able to take that with her this evening which was a major accomplishment.

My original plan was to do as much as I could and to be in bed by ten this evening so that I could “charge up” a big more hitting the road.  That did not work out, though, and I did not manage to get to bed until midnight.  So I will be much more tired tomorrow than expected.  That is unfortunate.  I have a lot of stuff to do tomorrow.

I am looking forward to the trip.  I have had very little time “up north” in seven months.  This is the longest that I have been away from the northeast, ever.
